Report: Police Had Been Looking For Pittman

A man accused of slaying one of six eastern North Carolina women killed over the past four years managed for months to avoid capture by police searching for him on unrelated charges.

31-year-old Antwan Maurice Pittman was charged with failing to register as sex offender after he was jailed last month in Nash County.

Pittman is charged with killing Taraha Nicholson, whose death is one of six similar cases being investigated by authorities.

Police sought Pittman after he twice failed to appear in court to face charge. Authorities accused him of trying to sell hundreds of bootlegged copies of compact discs and DVDs. He also was charged with DWI and driving with a revoked license.

    Glad someone has been arrested for the crime. He has been seen in Kinston a few weeks ago near a skating rink where kids were playing. Why was this man that close to a facility where children are knowing he was a sex offender? Sex offenders should wear some type of tracking device so authorities can keep up with them. Praying for all families involved. Apparently, this is a sick man!!
