VIDEO: Investigators Suspect Drug Cartel Involved in Ohio Family Murders

Investigators have interviewed more than 60 people in their ongoing manhunt for whoever killed eight members of an Ohio family last week

Investigators are looking at the possibility a Mexican drug cartel is behind the pre-planned execution of the family.

A law enforcement source confirmed to CBS News that investigators found some 200 marijuana plants. They were inside an indoor grow operation that was found in some of the homes where the eight members of the Rhoden family were executed.

The size of the operation, according to the source, indicates the marijuana was being grown for sale and not for personal use.

Weird. Sounds like all the victims were into drug dealing. So, were the victims working for the drug cartels and tried to cheat the cartel out of their "profits"? Some of them probably got just what they deserved. Still, its tragic and it shouldn't have happened.

Are you kidding, you idiot. I thought you were blocked. Moderator, thank you very much for trying to block our idiot. Percy, you're full of crap. Find some better place to put it, like in your room in the basement. Your last comment was rude and vulgar. I'm sure it will be deleted before long. Have a nice time trying to get past the block.

Percy/SES pls just ignore one another ns stick to saying things that are informative and make a difference and are interesting to other readers. Your back and forth is petty and beneath this publication. Now this story. Sad what happened to the youngsters. The adults, if this cartel connection is true, knew who they were dealing with and this is sometimes "industrial death" related to the business you are in. I fear we all will hear more from the cartels here in the USA. God help us.

POLICE MAGAZINE, I thought this information and forum was to be for bona fide law enforcement officers including honorably retired (of which I qualify, 32 years, you are welcome for my service)! Please block such clowns as PERCY LIVES who formerly posted as simply PERCY as he is a jerk, his comments offensive, and I am almost certain he doesn't qualify to be reading OR posting on this site! Please do a better job of vetting those allowed here as I find comments of the sort posted by the likes of PERCY LIVES to be insulting and degrading to those of us who have faithfully and honorably. Intelligent discussion and disagreement or differing views are welcome but NOT insults to my profession and brothers and sisters. Thank You.

Percy, believe it or not, you don't fund our salary's or pensions. For one thing, you are in the liberal country of Canada. I believe that even up there some of you're taxes go to the RCMP and other local agencies, which is a great thing. Although, only a fraction goes to police agencies, the government gets the rest. Its sad but even in Canada the Police are accused of being racist to the "Natives". Just like here in the U.S. Canadian Police are the governments scapegoat when one is needed. Is the RCMP racist?? You'd doubtless say yes, although you would be wrong. As in every agency, you might find an idiot here and there, but its unfair to characterize Police as racist. Get a life and stop antagonizing everyone on here. Why do you have it in for SES? Do his posts bother you that much???
