    just to let everyone know so they can stop the speculations. Pitt's date of death was Jan 12,2011. Ben was admitted to the hospital on Jan 8th. This illiminates him. Thanks

    Monkeyface, do you know this young woman personally and can state with 100% certainty she was involved in drugs? If not, WHY are you making accusations of drug use that you cannot substantiate? WITN has two articles of which Aimee is the subject – Between those two reports there are 224 comments posted of which ONE, yes ONE person states they had personal knowledge of this young woman being involved with drugs. MANY, many more of the comments state she is a sweet and caring person. The rest of the comments referencing drugs are folks discussing Tarboro’s perceived drug problem and were not directed towards Ms. Pitt personally. Perhaps the comments you spoke of were taken down for abusing TOS agreements about making unfounded accusations about people!

    My heart and prayers go out to this young woman's family . . .

    No one missed this girl until all the alerts went out when the cops check on her home. Where was her family and friends? How about her job if she was working? Today, we just don't have that one person, family, friend or foe to depend on like the good old days. Yet, this young lady die alone.

    So young, so sad. My prayers to those who loved her. I hope you get answers.

    Police didn't search the house until a neighbor complained about the odor coming from it. That was yesterday.

    Look at the man that was missing five months ago. Police searched his house, only to find him in the freezer a month later. What a search? Maybe that's what happened in this case.

    They just over looked her (somewhere in the house). It happens, cops are human too, and are not without error sometimes.

    The boyfried called her family after she had been missing a few days and thats when her father contacted law enforcement. The boyfriend was in a wreck on the 9th, so that means he was possibly living in the house with her body for more than a week before the accident.

    Pretty girl! Hope she didn't get tangled up with the wrong crowd; and this lead to her death.

    "THE BODY FOUND IN THE RESIDENCE HAS NOT BEEN IDENTIFIED AS THE MISSING YOUNG WOMAN! As most of you seem to have not completely read the article: the article never stated that the body found was that of the missing young woman - Stop assuming!"

    It's hard not to assume when the only missing person's picture they have up is of that particular young woman. If they didn't have a picture up, then no one would assume it was her.

    I bet they did go to the house as soon as she was missing but never looked in the freezer.
