Hundreds remember murder victim at vigil in Hubbard

Posted: Updated:
HUBBARD, Ohio -

Hundreds filled Orchard Avenue in downtown Hubbard. It was there, that the body of murder victim Cody Pitts was discovered, early last Saturday morning.

"It's amazing how many people he's touched, just to see how many people are here right now, it's incredible. He was an amazing guy," said Steve Cinicola.

Many wore green and white, representing Cody's favorite team, Michigan State. Other's left behind small mementos as a reminder of who Cody was as a son, brother and friend.

"Just the way he worded things, there was just something about him that would always put a smile to anybody's face," said Ryan Mills.

Unfortunately for this community, there are still more questions than answers, police haven't named any suspects and say they don't have any leads they can discuss.

Cody died from a single gun shot wound to the head and neck. Witnesses told police he was last seen at the Downtown Café on Main Street, just around the corner from where his body was found.

Friends say by holding the vigil at that location, they're sending a message.

Cinicola said, "My buddy said it the best earlier, the best thing we can take out of this is just to come together and try to be better people and make sure nothing like this happens again."
