Hubbard searches for answers as murder goes unsolved

hubbard, ohio murder police investigation


HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – If you’re heading into Hubbard on Youngstown-Hubbard Road, you’ll pass a billboard, asking the question that’s been on the minds of Hubbard residents since March: Who Killed Cody Pitts?

“As far as I know, whoever did this is still out there,” Hubbard Police Detective David Oaks said.

It’s a murder that’s left the city of Hubbard on edge. With no arrests and a family in mourning, the community is stepping up by placing signs in their yards. The demand for “Justice for Cody” signs has been steadily growing, according to Pitts family friend Danielle Songer.

“We had just kept putting order in, orders in, orders in and just realized that we, we have to put it out there to everyone so that anybody has the opportunity to participate,” Songer said.

Pier Graphics is making all the lawn signs and stickers. Songer said they’re asking for donations for the signs, with all the money will being given to Cody’s family.

More than 100 “Justice for Cody” signs have already been placed throughout Hubbard, and the people behind them are hoping they’re taken beyond the city limits.”

“We just want people to be speaking as much about it as possible, and hopefully it’ll lead to an arrest,” Songer said.

Crimestoppers is offering a $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

“There’s always the chance that there’s somebody who doesn’t know that we need their information and sees the sign and decides to give it a call,” Oaks said.

If you would like to get a yard sign, you can call 330-534-5870.
