Officials renew efforts to solve killing of pregnant mother
GEORGETOWN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Ohio plan to discuss renewed efforts to solve the case from 2013 when officers found a pregnant mother shot dead.
Brown County officials on Tuesday are expected to talk about their commitment to taking a fresh look at the Brittany Stykes homicide case.
Police have said they thought they were responding to an accident in August 2013 when they got a report of a vehicle off the road in a wooded area in Ripley, about 45 miles southeast of Cincinnati.
Instead, they found the 22-year-old Stykes dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Her then-14-month-old daughter was strapped in her car seat, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head.
The girl has since recovered.
