WRAL reported Pettit is the girlfriend of Darrius Sessoms, the man who is charged with 1st-degree murder of the 5 year old Cannon. Pettit helped Sessoms leave town after shooting the young child including providing him transportation.
Some believe the mainstream media has not done their job to cover this story as horrendous as it is. We previously reported on the lack of coverage: “Congressional candidate Marjorie Taylor Greene, who won her primary yesterday for Congress, tweeted out today about a black on white murder that happened in North Carolina. She said of the victim, a 5-year-old boy, “Say his name: Canon Hinnant.”

She tweeted an article written by Big League Politics that originally talked about the murder and the lack of mainstream media coverage. They had released a follow up article that said a say his name campaign was a way to draw attention to the murder.”
