What do you think about this?
A law enforcement source confirmed that investigators found roughly 200 marijuana plants growing inside at one of the four crime scenes where eight people were killed Friday in Pike County.
The source said the size of operation indicates it was being grown for sale, not for personal use.
A second law enforcement source said that investigators are looking at numerous avenues as a motive for the killings among them is whether there is a Mexican drug cartel connection, a possible drug turf war or a family feud.
The Pike County Prosecutor said investigators also found two marijuana crops growing outdoors.
Each plant could produce about one pound of marijuana. A pound of high grade quality marijuana has a street value of about $2,000.That means the marijuana grow operation could have a value of a half million dollars, or more.
Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine described the murders as pre-planned and cold blooded.
