MANCHESTER - Adrien Stillwell is just 21 years old, and on Tuesday he appeared in court after being arrested and charged with conspiracy to murder Michael Pittman.
“Mr. Pittman had been suffering from addiction to narcotics he had recently been arrested,” testified Detective Patrick Houghton, the lead investigator from Manchester Police on the case.
Police said men like Michael Younge - accused of pulling the trigger in Pittman's death - and Stillwell were afraid that Pittman may have ratted them out to police.
Both men have previous criminal history and known to the drug scene in the Queen City, according to the police.
Allegedly, it was Stillwell - back in October - who began to plan Pittman’s death.
“Even the people that knew him started to say negative things about him,” said neighbor Heather Philipp.
The Attorney General's office said it wasn't able to speak on the investigation or tell us if another suspect is still at large.
Houghton testified that three individuals were present the night of Pittman’s death.
But even back in November, Phillips was able to say with confidence that the neighbors are keeping a watchful eye.
“Everybody knows you’re watching and waiting and keeping an eye out. That’s what a neighborhood is,” said Philipp.
While the Granite Street neighborhood is still on the lookout, Younge and Stillwell’s cases will go before a grand jury.
