Police Need Tips in Young Mother's Murder

Police Need Tips in Young Mother's Murder

(Georgetown, OH) -- A week after the murder of Brittany Stykes, the Brown County Sheriff's Office is still going through possible motives and suspects.  Chief Deputy John Schadle says they have some evidence, but they need help from the public.

On the night of August 28th, Brittany Stykes was found in her Jeep, crashed in the woods, just outside of Georgetown, near US68.  She had been shot to death.  Her daughter, Aubree, was also wounded. 

Schadle says investigators have been following leads and tips, but so far, aren't ready to name a person of interest, and they're not ready to clear anyone in Stykes' circles.  He says CrimeStoppers has offered a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Schadle says it's possible someone saw something, or knows something, but doesn't realize it's important to the case. 

He says they know Stykes was killed sometime between 7:30pm and 8:05pm, because she was found at 8:05, and they have surveillance video of Stykes driving at 7:30.  He would not say where the video came from.
