David Dodson, the father of Brittany Stykes, says he's encouraged after officials raided a home Tuesday in Northern Kentucky in search of evidence related to his daughter's murder case. 

Detective Buddy Moore, of the Brown County Sheriff's Office, says with assistance from Kentucky State Police and the Pendleton County Sheriff's Office, executed a search warrant at a Falmouth home on Hogg Ridge Road at High Ridge Road Tuesday morning.

Moore would not release many details about the executed search warrant.  

Authorities said last month that they believe they had identified the 22-year-old's killer.

Brown County Chief Deputy Sheriff Carl Smith said detectives received promising information in June that will most likely be presented to a grand jury within two months.

He expressed confidence that the latest information nailed down a single suspect.  

“As soon as the grand jury gives us an indictment, we’ll make an arrest then,” Smith Wednesday.

The tips came from Carroll and Owen counties in Kentucky.

Officials found Stykes, who was 17 weeks pregnant, shot to death behind the wheel of her Jeep along Ohio 68 in Brown County. Her daughter also was shot. She’s undergone several brain surgeries.
