HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Detectives are still following leads in the now year-old murder case of Cody Pitts.
Monday marks the anniversary of the death of the 2007 Hubbard High School graduate, who was found with a single gunshot wound to the head on Orchard Avenue. Investigators said Pitts was last seen alive at the nearby Downtown Coffee Cafe and Patio Bar in Hubbard.
Green ribbons are now hanging on light posts and utility poles all around the city — reminding those of the young life that was taken away.
Even though it has been a year, Hubbard Police Detective Sgt. David Oaks said police are not giving up, and they continue to follow leads from the community.
“Probably every week we get somebody that will call with something, not necessarily a Crime Stoppers tip, but something that they heard or something that they think might be important,” he said.
Anyone with information on the murder can call the police department at 330-534-1133 or the Youngstown-area branch of Crime Stoppers at 330-746-2583. There is a $20,000 reward for any tips leading to the solving of the crime.
