Sad Day in Chapel Hill

Yesterday at 5:AM, at the Hillcrest neighborhood on the east side of Chapel Hill, NC, a dead body was found. There was no ID on it, and it was described as a white female aged 18 to 25 years old. Police arrived in response to calls from neighborhood residents reporting sounds of gunshots when the body was found.

This morning Chapel Hill Police announced they had identified the body. It was 22 year old Eve Carson, student body president at UNC - Chapel Hill. She had died of multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the head. They were still looking for her car, which was found today at 2:PM on North Street.

The entire day today was a very sad one on the UNC campus. Eve Carson was the 4th female student body president in UNC history, and easily one of the best loved. There were tears and hugs everywhere. A memorial service was held at The Pit, and was attended by literally thousands of students. There will be a candlelight vigil on campus tonight at 7:PM.

Eve Carson was loved by everyone, or so it seems today. It is hard to imagine she had any enemies. Yet two disturbing questions remain.
Who killed Eve Carson, and WHY?
