    OH - Brittany Stykes, 22, pregnant, Georgetown, 28 Aug 2013

    A toddler injured in a shooting that left her 22-year-old pregnant mother dead in Brown County is "improving," the child's father said Friday.

    Brittany Stykes, of Ripley, was found shot to death Wednesday evening inside a car that crashed along a stretch of U.S. Route 68.

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    When Brown County deputies responded to a call Wednesday night around 8:15 they thought it was just a car that had run off the road. When they arrived at Gooselick Road and U.S. 68 they found a lot more: a car with bullet holes in the door, a woman slumped over the wheel and a wounded baby still strapped in a car seat.

    Brittany Stykes was a 2009 graduate of R-U-L-H High School in Ripley. Her teachers say she was bright and engaging. Stykes taught Bible School at her church. She was five months pregnant.

    My first thought when I saw this was to check Dad. But something about that seems wrong here. She was driving and the baby was in the car. So shooting her obviously endangers the baby in the car seat. And she is pregnant with the 2 child. If it was Dad and if he wanted to kill Mom, I think he would have either chosen a time and place where the child wasn't endangered or if he wanted rid of the child too, he would have stopped at the car after the shooting and made sure.

    So if Dad gets ruled out, who could want a Mother of one, a pregnant woman dead? A Sunday school teacher FGS!

    Road rage, mistaken identity. Sending prayers for that child.

    The area mentioned is a state road. But is rural. No houses in that area, but the highway is 4 lane I think. At 8 pm, there would have been traffic, but like here and there, nothing constant. At that time of day it was still daylight.

    Ripley is a village in Brown County, Ohio, United States, along the Ohio River 50 miles southeast of Cincinnati. The population was 1,750 at the 2010 census.

    IOW if you live there very long you get to know everybody in town, or you at least know of them.

    This sooo fits with your siggy. (the article in the OP) And that topix thread
    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    My thinking on it is that there doesn't seem to be a sexual component. A mother with a baby would not be seen as a threat in most cases.

    But did she see something someone didn't want her to see?

    I just can't get over the fact that it was daylight.

    The local paper is a weekly, so by the time it comes out the news media has usually given away most of the info. But this time they do have some new info.


    Ripley residents said Stykes did have a husband, and that the two were recently seen together during the Ohio Farmers Festival Sunday afternoon.

    "She was one of our regular customers, she and [her husband] and their kids," said Candy Campbell, waitress at the 50s Diner in Ripley. "She was just here on Sunday with her baby, him, and his little boy. They were happy. They were all happy."

    Local 12 Reporter Adam Clements spoke with Stykes' parents who are pleading with the public for help.


    David Dodson, Brittany Stykes's father said "I mean, she was my world.”


    David and Mary Dodson don't understand why their daughter is gone. David Dodson said, "I want to know what happened to my daughter. This is a senseless, senseless crime."

    The report states at least five shots were fired and two struck Stykes, of Ripley, while she was 17 weeks pregnant. The three other shots hit the door of her vehicle.

    One shot hit her neck, the coroner said. If that had been it, the wound would have been superficial. But the second bullet hit the side of Stykes' chest, puncturing her lungs and possibly going through her body and into her arm.

    There was no soot from the gun blast on Stykes' body, suggesting she was not shot at close range.

    If the shooting happened while Stykes was seven more weeks along in her pregnancy, the coroner said the baby might have lived.

    snip....."She was almost halfway there and another seven weeks and the baby could have been viable live outside the body by itself -- but not at 17 weeks," Varnau said.

    Well it looks like it wasn't a stray bullet

    Police released few other details about the case Thursday, saying they have no possible suspects or a motive, reports the station. However, they have reportedly narrowed down the time frame during which Stykes was killed, saying she was captured on video camera driving her Jeep at 7:30 p.m. and discovered dead at 8:05 p.m.
