In Rocky Mount North Carolina 8 bodies of 10 missing African American women have been found. All 8 are believed to have been killed by Antwan Maurice Pittman who is currently in the Edgecomb County Jail. The governor of North Carolina has sent in the National Gaurd to find the bodies of the last two remaining women, Joyce Renee Durham & Yolanda Lancaster. Watch video on this story below:
