Cody Pitts, 26 years old, was the son of Alfred and Vada Landes Pitts. He was a 2007 graduate of Hubbard High School and a laborer and member of Laborers Union No. 125 Youngstown. He was a die-hard Michigan State fan, an avid golfer, and a fantasy sports enthusiast. While sports were what he lived for, bringing a smile to others’ faces was what he was best at.
In the early morning hours of March 7, 2015 Cody was shot and killed by a single gunshot wound to the head. He had just left a café in his hometown of Hubbard, OH, walking only about 300 feet, when he was shot. There is surveillance video from the surrounding businesses, but much of it is too inconclusive to use as evidence in naming a suspect.
Cody is sadly missed by his parents, his brothers, Chad and Tony Pitts, and hundreds of other family members and close friends.
While our local police department has been tirelessly trying to solve this crime; they have hit a road block. It is our sincere hope that a formidable reward will bring about information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of whomever is responsible for the murder.
The support shown to Cody’s family has been immeasurable, the love, prayers and kindness have been abundant. But, unfortunately they are still waiting for justice to be served. Please help us to find “Justice for Cody!”
We are working with our local Crime Stoppers organization in trying to raise the reward to help find the person(s) responsible for this senseless murder. They are looking for any information about what may have happened after Cody left the bar, including the route he took. There is a $3,000 reward for any tips leading to the solving of the investigation. You can reach the Youngstown-area branch of Crime Stoppers at 330-746-2583.
Any and all donations will go directly to the Crime Stoppers fund.Go Fund Me
