Brittany Loritts' murder featured in TV series

According to a press release, on Thursday, July 21, at 10 p.m., Investigation Discovery is featuring the story of Brittany Loritts’ murder on its popular series, “Nightmare Next Door.”
Loritts, 18 was murdered in her Salisbury home. The press release describes the episode — “Investigators are at a loss as to who would commit such a crime, but the case gets hot when they find that this family home is built on buried secrets.”
The Post wrote about the filming of the episode last February http://www.salisburypost.com/News/021811-Salisbury-featured-on-discovery-show-weeks-lorritts-qcd.
This episode includes interviews with the victim’s father, Rodrick Loritts, and her sister, Asti Loritts, as well as:
• Detective J.D. Barber, who retired from the Salisbury Police Department;
• Detective Brent Hall of the Salisbury Police Department;
• Special Agent Steven Holmes of the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation
• David Whisenant, reporter for WBTV.
The release continues, “When 18-year-old Brittany Loritts is found raped and murdered in her Salisbury, North Carolina home, investigators are at a loss as to who would commit such a crime. With no murder weapon or physical evidence, police have to rely on the kindness of neighbors to piece this puzzle together and go door-to-door looking for clues. When an unexpected suspect proves to have the opportunity and the motive to commit murder, the investigation gets red hot. As this Shakespearian tale unravels, detectives unlock a closet full of skeletons and find that this family home is built on buried secrets.”
Loritts’ stepfather, Reginald Weeks Jr., was arrested and pleaded in the case and is serving a nine- to 12-year sentence.
The program can be found on Time Warner Cable at Channel 251 / HD 1251 or Fibrant Channel 134 / HD 674, as well as on satellite services.
