Highway Ambush

Brittany Stykes and her 14-month-old daughter, Aubree, are on their way to her family’s farm in Ripley, OH to celebrate her father’s 49th birthday, but they never arrive. Around 8pm on August 28, 2013, someone fires five shots into Brittany’s vehicle, killing the 22- year-old mother, who is four months pregnant with her second child, and critically injuring young Aubree. Investigators say Brittany was targeted, but by whom? Brittany was a well-liked young woman who had no enemies, and nobody appears to have had a motive to want her, or her little girl, dead. Brittany’s husband says he was working out at a gym fifteen miles away when his family was shot, and points to several other potential suspects. Nine years later, investigators say all options are still on the table, and they could use the public’s help.

There is a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Brittany’s killer. If you have any information on the murder of Brittany Stykes, please call the Brown County Sheriff’s office at 937-378-4435 or Crime Stoppers at 888-352-3040.

    I don’t know him. I was at the funeral and I seen the way he acted. It was like oh well.
    But Brittany’s parents couldn’t even hold it together. I said he did it or had someone to. There was no sympathy no tears.
