Yes, I feel that it was a bad idea for them to have shared right's to the home, I had already heard before that Mr. Pitts was abusesive with Idella, she was a very nice, friendly, and pleasant person, always walking for excersising when it was cold or hot, winter and summer, I feel strongly that Mr. Pitts shot Idella leaving her to die while he go to the Radcliff police station, which he could have called 911 from his home, I just hope he don't get away with killing a beautiful lady, I live only a few houses from Idella, and I am in shock to learn what has happen and I still can't beleive she is gone, yes she is known by many people as smileing and waving the many time's she went walking, I did not even know they were divorce, I hope he get's punish for what he did.

u feel sorry for her....i swear it figures this one way street with woman. They want equal rights but think they should be able to do whatever they want. A guy hits his wife hes a horrible person but as in this case the wife assaulted the man WITH A WEAPON! Yet ppl still defend her and critizize him???

U don't know a person unless u know a person. Seeing someone walking, speaking and waving doesn't mean u know that person. Don't judge a matter based on news reports or what u see.

I find it amazing on how many people say they know someone when they really do not have a clue. They need to quit making judgments until the facts are released and when they are, I am sure they all will be surprised at the outcome. I just hope that when all of the investigations are completed that the newspaper and local media put as much effort into telling the truth as they are dancing around it like they are now. And then I hope all of these people that are saying they know someone because they exercise and smile all of the time come back and apologies to Mr. Pitts for all of their Armchair Assumptions.
Maybe you should ask yourself, what condition was Mr. Pitts in when he left his x wifes home? Why did he go to the home that Sunday morning? That is the Problem with the world today, just because you hear something does not make it true! Wait for the facts before you go running off at the mouth! Then you won't stupid in the end!

Spina I think your post was sentimental and your beliefs are your beliefs. The truth, whatever it will be, will come out. One could ask the others are you going to apoligize if he admits to killing her? I dont know the story because I didnt live in either of their shoes. I just know that a life was loss and people are hurting. I know people who DO know her and they say nothing but kind words of her. Yes I do believe what I hear..considering the sources!

It a shame dat Idella Pitts lost her life in such a violence way. In which Mr Pitts kno dat she wud neva done to herself inflict pain among herself, neva. Why wud sum one who wuz goin to kill therself continue to Wrk out each day. Why wud she fight 4 her life and thn turn around and take her own life. Why wud she hav her purse wit her and Da car running if she wuz goin to kill herself. She wudn hav she wuz running & fighting 4 her life which Zebadee had apart in. Like sum one else utter why didn't he call 911 instead of shown up ther mayb three Hr or so later. Da ball has been drop and ther is sum cover up goin on. Mr.Pitts is a mason and he a x soldier who kno how to manipulate Da system..

It is a shame how I see ppl on here assume what happened. This man was my God father, never had a mean or abusive streak in him. I have seen abuse all my life cuz my dad was like that to my mom and Mr. Pitts would always get on his case about the things my dad did. People do alot of things for no reason. No one knows what happened that night. No one but God........it is devasting to know that ppl I have known and loved all my life have to go through such a tragedy. Don't throw sticks. We know that they were both good ppl and after 28 yrs of marriage, it wasn't working and someone had to call it quits. I know who was persuing the divorce and I know who didn't want it either. Lets jus pray for the family that they find the answers they need to move on, God will shine light on them and truth will be revealed. And in the end everyone will be surprised to see what even the sweetest ppl in the world can snap!

Will the police ever admit that they did not properly investigate Mr.Pitts. Will they admit they drop the ball and now is basically sweeping this case under the rug.

God Daughter chicago: How do you know that Zebedee never had a mean streak in him? I am very close with their son, and he showed to me letters from his mother detailing the abuse that Ms. Pitts suffered at the hands of Zebedee for 28 years. Do not be fooled by Mr. Pitts "nice ways." Things are not always what they seem. You think you know people, but you do not. Is it possible that Ms. Pitts took her own life? Yes, it is very possible, but we cannot discount the fact that Mr. Pitts played a major role in her death. So weather he pulled the trigger or not, he killed her slowly over 28 years with his controlling ways and verbal, physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. If only you could have read the letters that their son shared with me. And to top it off, their son tells me that not one person from the Pitts family has reached out to him or called him to check on him. None of his eight uncles or grand parents or cousins have creached out to console him. And you God Daughter Chicago showed be ashamed for not reaching out to their son or daughter. You all are so worried about Zebedee, but you all have failed to realize that the kids are the true victims in this mess. Their son told me that me that his father could not even look at him the day following his mothers death. The truth is that the Pitts family disliked Ms. Pitts greatly from what their son has told me. All I know is that we need to continue to pray for the children of Zebedee and Idella. Two kids have lost their parents, yes, both parents, in this horrible inncident. No matter the outcome of the case Mr. Pitts will have to face God one day about this and has to live his life knowing that he either killed his ex-wife, or that he drove her to take her own life because of how he treated her. Now that is some truth for you all.

God Daughtor Chicago you say "in the end everyone will be surprised to see what even the sweetest ppl in the world can snap!"

That is very true, but do you know that sometime people are pushed and forced ito such actions because their back is agaisnt the wall and they have no where to turn and that can cause them to snap. Are you aware that Kentucky has one of the higest domestic violence rates in the country? Have you every heard of battered spouse syndrome? 20 years in the military can make you a very mean and abusive person. Military men are very controling because that is what their lives are about. Are you aware that people (Zebedee) can live a double life. He might be nice and loving when he saw you, but when he wentback home to his family he could of been mean and abusive. Look at Biship Eddie Long. If Eddie Long can do what he did, what makes you think that Mr. Pitts was not capable of living a double life?
