This week, iHeartRadio debuts a brand new podcast for true crime enthusiasts: “The Piketon Massacre.” The series delves into the mystery behind Ohio’s largest massacre, which shook the close-knit, religious community of Piketon in 2016 after eight members of the Rhoden family were found dead in their home. Two years later, the neighboring and well-respected Wagner family was arrested and charged with the heinous crime. Join the podcast’s hosts, veteran true crime producers Stephanie Lydecker and Courtney Armstrong, as they examine the evidence and speak with townspeople, psychologists and investigators to uncover the truth of what happened—and the secret ties that connected both families. Are the Wagners responsible, or is it possible there’s still a murderer at large? Tune in to “The Piketon Massacre” on iHeartRadio to start listening and find out now.
