No family is innocent, each one of them has some skeletons in their closet. The Lodge Family is one of the main families on the show. They are the owners of Lodge Industries and own the majority of the property in the town. The family used to live in the city of New York, but the arrest of Hiram Lodge forced Veronica and her mother to come to Riverdale.
