Police get "biggest break" in UNC student killing

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. ” Detectives are searching for a man videotaped using the ATM card of the University of North Carolina student body president who was shot to death and dumped on a city street, police said Saturday.

Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran released two surveillance photos of the suspect taken at an ATM machine in Chapel Hill, but declined to say when the photos were taken. Police also released a photo of a baseball cap the suspect appears to be wearing in both of the surveillance pictures.

“This is our biggest break so far in this case,” Curran said.

Eve Carson, 22, was found Wednesday morning on a street not far from campus. She had been shot several times, including once in the right temple, and her body was found lying in the street.

Her truck was discovered Thursday, hours after police identified Carson as the shooting victim.

Curran said police have circulated the picture with police departments in North Carolina, hoping their officers might be able to identify the suspect. The ATM photos show a young man in a baseball cap and hooded sweat shirt driving a sport utility vehicle that may be Carson’s Toyota Highlander, Curran said.

Carson appears to be the victim of a random crime, Curran said.
