My theory is:
Chris and Dana was getting back together and he bought the trailer for them to be a family again.
Dana made the ultimatum "I'll come back but no more supporting my sister and no more growing". Chris agreed but just one more to put some money back , Dana agreed.
That didn't sit well with her sister or her customers, she knew there was one more fixing to be harvested and they wanted it. I don't think it was supposed to go as far as it did but tempers flared and it got very bad. I don't think BJM was there but I do think she set things on motion and gave the details of who, what and where.
Thats just my opinion

not my theory, came from a local poster but still believable in my opinion.

jr allegedly raped hr, chris sr. threatened to kill him over it, kr tried to talk him out of it. also they were running drugs into ky. and stepping on dr's toes. suspect bh helped his buddy jr
and dr had the motive to get back at crsr for infringing on his territory. br may have helped.

YESSSSS .... finally. Thanks, Smiley. My post will take some time and I'm getting dinner. I will return, if that's possible. Been here since day 1. My theory is somewhat multi-faceted, but definitely involves Becky Allen Clay, Kathie Manley Clay and her husband. I believe Bobbi Jo Manley knows everything, but was not involved in the crime. There's more, but my family dinner awaits. Thank you kindly for opening this thread. I really hope it is successful. I want to share my ideas, but I am extremely skeptical, as I trust no one. Looking forward to intelligent conversations and theories on how this horrific crime could happen to this family. This will definitely be on 48 hours or Dateline NBC imo in the not too distant future. I have followed many theories and various threads on this case and almost jumped on a couple bandwagons, but I still come back to BAC and the Manley's. Hands down!

I am still bouncing between theories. But I will go with sharing one for now.

I feel a long festering resentment, envy, degradation has been boiling. I am thinking that one with so much hate enlisted someone that also carried harsh feelings or felt it was the right thing to do because they loved the one more than anyone, they felt a strong bond and felt that loved ones pain and would not let it happen again. The ultimate act of love destroy what is hurting your much loved one.
Possibly a family member or one very close so hurt and degraded treated as if they were trash and they couldn't take it any longer. Possibly the wrong or belittling had became a way of life for some to treat that person in that manner. Was it a physical wrong, or emotional wrong that burnt deep in ones soul? Possibly a not stable son or sons of a close family member? Maybe a distant relative. No I do not think this came from the R side of the family.

Reliable word is that Dana was tearful and upset that last night of work. Commented that, "a bunch of s$&t" was going on at home. Personally, I believe C.Jr and HR were already deceased when Dana got home and she was ambushed, or she came in as the killers were there. One thing that has always struck me as odd is why go to Detroit to car auctions when we have one much closer here in the state of Ohio. There is a drug run between Illinois and Ohio, specifically Detroit. I believe that drugs were hidden in the cars and if hauler ever stopped, it would not be likely that cars on back of hauler would be checked. Double crossing, mis-spent monies, word getting out, someone getting ready to blow the game...I believe BJM is very much involved in this...why else would she take 2 others with her supposedly to feed the dogs other than to have witnesses that she just "happened" on this grisly scene.

I believe they all had to die as they were all involved in the running and/or getting ready to sing to LE. I believe locals are involved, but I also believe there are ties to Detroit.

I don't have any overall theory but I do have some ideas. HR was targeted. Nothing else makes sense because she was in the hospital days before these murders. If the killers wanted to spare her, they could have. Her baby was spared.

Hhg was maybe but not necessarily targeted. I say not necessarily because I doubt there was a way to plan this so she would not be there. Her child and step child were spared. Her fiancé was undoubtedly targeted. The only logical dispute to this would be that hhg was the target and fr was just there. I don't buy that.

I'm sure crsr was targeted,it's his family, after all. He was the patriarch. I'm not so sure about GR. I don't know how long he'd been there.

Dr and crjr? Were both targets? Neither? I feel DR was, I'm shaky on CR but teenagers frequently stay with friends, stay out late, etc on weekends so the fact that the killers chose Thursday leads me to him being a target.

Clearly, KR was targeted. I don't believe his murder is unrelated. It's too far fetched, IMO.

So, what did these people, in life, all have in common? That's the key in my mind.

I absolutely think this was an up close killing spree. Strangers did not go up that dark country road, IMO. I think the killers wanted this to look like a hit, but there's too much rage, it reeks of personal.

I think KR was first or last simply because of his location. Whatever the motive, he had a part or he'd be alive. I have wondered if the killers just killed him to add to the confusion but I know that sounds crazy.

The dark road, the dogs, the cameras. They all add up to well planned but not outsiders.

Just my two cents on a cold winters night.

I think she was involved OR the killers made darned sure it would appear that she was. I lean to the latter because I don't think she could withstand the intense interrogation she faced. Just IMO but the police rousted her out of bed and point blank accused her (according to her). Either she's very, very cold or she's just not involved. I don't see grey there.

I feel KR was involved as a perpetrator and he was the access point into getting into the other trailers. I would hypothesize that it was over drugs and money and KR was a sellout. Once the deeds were done I think they returned to KR's place where he was double crossed and taken out. Part of his "cut" of the money left behind at his corpse's feet.

Let's say the MJ was packed and ready to go....The dealers come to pick it up. (Theoretically) the dealers are paying $50,000 for the packages but get greedy and decide they'll make a whole lot more if they don't have to pay the Rhodens so they devise a plan to kill them and take the stuff. These can be the people that were brought in by KR, have aliases per Hillbilly but everyone can describe them so they all must go. These people can be from Columbus.

great use of brevity. if you have more words to spare care to expand? do you think kr was an easy mark who could have identified the killers? or an accomplice and they turned on him? was the omc local as in they have a chapter in southern ohio? which drug?

Kenneth PROVIDED the opportunity. The CONNECTION between the MOTIVE and MEANS was Kenneth.

I do NOT propose that Kenneth was the killer.

I apologize for my lapse in communication skills.

I don't necessarily have just 1 theory but there are a couple of things that in my opinion really stand out.

1) Members of 1 family found 7 of the 8 victims.

2) All the people who supposedly were supposed to stay somewhere that particular night ended up NOT staying. I feel these 2 things are more than just coincidental.

Could it be that threats had been made so those who changed their minds about spending the night were fearful and/or told not to stay. And if that's the case, would any or even 1 of them come forward and say for example .....well, I didn't stay because my dad told me there might be problems or an aunt told me it would probably be better if I didn't, or even something so simple as rumor was they had been threatened by someone but I don't know who so that's why I didn't stay, etc. OR did some of those possibly play a role in the murders?

It's a good thought but to play devil's advocate.....is even 100k enough motivation to take 8 lives?
