A request for victim compensation from the brother-in-law of one of the victims was turned down by the state of Ohio because of evidence of a marijuana growing operation at the crime scene.
David Weisel, brother-in-law to Christopher Rhoden Sr., applied in May 2016 to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office to be reimbursed for lost wages.
