VIDEO UPDATE: Actual audio of 911 calls in Ohio

Posted at 4:55 PM, Apr 23, 2016

A woman who called 911 to report two of the eight slayings of an Ohio family says in a recording that she found her brother-in-law dead and "blood all over the house."  

Ohio's attorney general released audio of two calls on Saturday.
 
In one, made Friday morning, the out-of-breath caller says another person in the house also appears dead, and it looks like someone had "beat the crap out of them."
 
Authorities have released few details about the case. They say investigators are still processing evidence from the four crimes scenes where the members of the Rhoden family were found in rural Pike County. The victims include seven adults and a 16-year-old boy. They were found in homes near Piketon, about 60 miles south of Columbus.
 
Another 911 caller reported finding his cousin with a gunshot wound.
 
No arrests have been made.
 
Law enforcement officials say whoever is responsible should be considered armed and dangerous.
 
Authorities say all were shot in the head and that it appeared some were killed as they slept, including a mother in bed with her 4-day-old baby nearby. The infant and two other small children were not harmed.
 
Investigators say none of the deaths appeared self-inflicted, so they believe at least one assailant is at large.
