According to a release from Rocky Mount Police Department, detectives in the Cold Case Unit reopened Anderson's case in Dec. 2019.

On Monday, investigators served a warrant on Limichael Pittman for first-degree murder in connection to Anderson's death. Rocky Mount Police Department said while investigators were following leads, they were also able to charge Pittman with an attempted murder that happened three days before Anderson's death.

Pittman is currently in jail awaiting trial on two unrelated homicides in Rocky Mount and Edgecombe County.
