Lori Ann Pittman: Arrests Made in Murder of Pregnant Woman Whose Family Still Cannot Be Found
Back in July, Houston police reported finding a dead body in the 3300 block of Calumet.
They had no information on the victim's identity then; she has since been identified as Lori Ann Pittman, 30, and HPD says she was pregnant at the time of her death.
Arrests were made in the case today, KTRK reports. They also note that police have been unable to contact any friends or family of the victim.
The killing appears to be at least somewhat drug-related.

One suspect was arrested at his apartment, and the other, Brandon Jackson, was arrested at the courthouse where he was appearing on a drug charge.
Sources tell Eyewitness News that today's arrests are connected to a large drug and weapons seizure which took place about a month ago at one of the suspect's addresses. Police arrested seven people in that raid.
Authorities say Jackson and the other suspect were running drugs out of the apartment. The unidentified suspect's mother led police to her son. She claims her son is innocent.
Both suspects have been charged with capital murder.
