CHAPEL HILL --
A young woman found shot to death in an intersection in the Hillcrest neighborhood early Wednesday was the student body president at UNC-Chapel Hill, police said today.
Police identified the dead woman as Eve Marie Carson, 22, of Athens, Ga., a Morehead-Cain scholar and a senior. They have made no arrests and have no suspects.
Investigators are looking for Carson's stolen 2005 blue Toyota Highlander with Georgia license plate AIV 6690. They believe the vehicle was taken during the crime.
Town Police Chief Brian Curran said police have no motive for the killing. "At this point what I'm thinking, what it feels like, is a fairly random crime," Curran said.
Carson was last seen alive at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, Curran said.
As student body president, Carson served on the UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees. She spent the spring semester of 2006 on a UNC Study Abroad program in Cuba and later studied in Ecuador. She was majoring in political science and biology and hoped to go to medical school.
