Some Relief After Arrest In Edgecombe County

Residents strolling the streets in one eastern Carolina community are relieved to have one suspected killer behind bars.

Authorities arrested Antwan Maurice Pittman Tuesday in the murder of 28 year-old Taraha Shenice Nicholson. But, it's only one answer in a continuing mystery involving the deaths of six Rocky Mount women.

Tuesday night we talked with residents in Rocky Mount about the arrest. Those that we talked with say it gives them a small sense of relief to know that a suspected murderer is off the streets, but they're still uneasy with the fact that five other killings remain unsolved.

The task force investigating the deaths is not commenting on whether Pittman could be involved in the additional murders.
