Pitt previously practiced in Colorado, and was asked to assist in the homicide of Benet, who was murdered in 1996.
"He gave us insights in terms of 'profiling' people that we were looking at that I thought were beyond all of our expertise, important, helpful stuff," Hunter told the Phoenix New Times in 1999. "He's tough and tenacious, and he isn't just a book kind of guy. He was particularly valuable in giving us suggestions about the order and timing and nature of the questions we'd be asking the Ramseys. He always has had extremely strong feelings about the case, which, to put it mildly, he wasn't afraid to share."
Pitt also consulted on the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, the Republic reported.
