COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A special weapons and tactics team is helping search for evidence in the execution-style slayings of eight family members in Ohio last year.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office tells WBNS-TV (https://bit.ly/2qfOLI1 ) a swat team conducted searches in Pike County on Saturday. The Ohio Attorney General’s Office says the search was related to a search the day before in Adams County. Further details weren’t disclosed.

Authorities are trying to uncover information about the seven adults and teenage boy from the Rhoden family who were found shot to death April 22, 2016, at four homes near Piketon. The town is about 70 miles (113 kilometers) south of Columbus. Three children were found unharmed.

No arrests have been made in the deaths. Family members have pleaded for anyone with information to step up.
