Slain UNC student's photo used on Indian ads

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- The image of slain University of North Carolina Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson has turned up in an unlikely place: adorning billboards in southern India.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Carson's picture is being used to advertise a company called Jubeerich Consultancy, which offers study opportunities and job
placements in Western countries
.

It's not clear how the company came across the photo of the Athens, Ga. native, who was abducted, robbed and killed March 5, 2008. Two men - Laurence Lovette Jr. and Demario Atwater - are serving life sentences for Carson's death.

The company did not respond to emails seeking comment, and a woman who answered the phone declined to give her name but said she had not seen the billboards.
