The murder scene was discovered after Dorla Pitts, who was a nurse, did not report to work and so coworkers became concerned and checks were made at her home. It has been reported that since the incident, 19-year-old, Brian Omar Hyde, who had the crime scene as his last listed address, had been arrested after being caught driving a car without a driver’s license. Reports are that he may be connected to this homicide investigation.
