Police find new photos of suspect in death of UNC student leader

CHAPEL HILL (AP) -- Police in Chapel Hill say they have found additional surveillance photos of the suspect (view the photos here) in the slaying of University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson. Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran said Monday that detectives now have a photo of the suspect attempting to use Carson's ATM card at a convenience store. Curran said the subject of that photo appears to be the same young man seen in two ATM surveillance photos released on Saturday. In those photos, the suspect is seen in a baseball cap and hooded sweat shirt driving a sport utility vehicle that may be Carson's Toyota Highlander. The 22-year-old Carson was found last week lying on a street about a mile from campus. She had been shot several times, including once in the right temple. Police have previously said they believe she was the victim of a random act.

Report: Police think second person may have been in vehicle in photo

Police in Chapel Hill now think there may have been a second person in the vehicle driven by a man they say was trying to use Eve Carson's ATM card. That's according to a report on the Web site of The News & Observer of Raleigh. Carson was the University of North Carolina student body president who was shot to death last week. Black and white photographs distributed Saturday show what looks to be a large, shadowed figure behind the driver's side head rest. What looks like someone's shoulder can be seen between the driver's seat and head rest. Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran said authorities believe there may have been a second person in that automobile. Police have said the SUV in the surveillance photo could be Carson's blue 2005 Toyota Highlander. If there was a second person in the back seat, it could explain how the killer or killers got away and the SUV was found parked around the corner from Carson's home.
