    This case has always bothered me. I guess it's because I am not too much older than the victim and the whole thing is just so tragic. I am not trying to stir up trouble, but I was recently in the UNC area and met someone who is closely tied to the university. We started talking about this case and she told me that the crime was "MUCH worse than has been reported in the media." That the police kept most of the gruesome details secret, but that it has leaked out to the campus staff and students. I was wondering if anyone knew more about this -- and if so -- are the two "men" (I use this term loosely) being charged with anything further??

    A friend said ABC11.com is reporting no evidence of rape, although warrants said evidence requested was Pubic hair combings, 50 pubic hairs, 50 head hairs, blood, and saliva and cheek scrapings from Atwater, who she was in the back seat with. A warrant also says police have probable cause to believe "sexual assault of an unknown nature occurred," though neither Lovette nor Atwater has been charged with such an assault.

    I almost wish they could be released so they can receive the punishment they truly deserve.

    Carson killed by blasts from shotgun
    http://www.wral.com/news/state/story/3125964/

    The report details the "multiple gunshot wounds" it lists as Carson's cause of death. It said she was shot twice with a shotgun, once to the right temple and once in the right hand. The report also said Carson was shot four other times.
    She was found lying in the street, tilted on her left hip. Her right arm was bent behind her head, according to the medical examiner's "Report of Investigation" released Monday morning.



    RIP, Eve.

    Letter confirms federal probe of Eve Carson homicide

    Hillsborough, N.C. A letter made public Thursday confirms federal authorities have opened an investigation into the shooting death of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's student body president.

    U.S. Attorney Anna Mills Wagoner says in the letter, dated April 23, to Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall, that investigators opened the investigation nine days after Eve Carson, 22, was found dead several blocks from the UNC campus.

    I think the most interesting part of the article Fran linked to is the possibility of death penalty due to the carjacking being associated with a murder.

    DA will seek death penalty in UNC murder case

    Posted: Today at 5:00 a.m.
    Updated: 5 minutes ago

    Hillsborough, N.C. — Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall said Monday he will seek the death penalty against one of two men charged in the shooting death of last year's student body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

    Demario James Atwater, 22, was arrested March 12 and charged with first-degree murder in the March 5 shooting death of Eve Marie Carson, 22, of Athens, Ga.

    ...........................snip................... .......

    Since the death penalty was reinstated in North Carolina in 1977, no one has been sentenced to death in Orange County. The last person executed for a crime there was John Breeze in January 1948.

    Lovette, 17, who is also charged in the Jan. 18 shooting death of Duke University graduate student Abhijit Mahato, is not eligible for the death penalty. A 2005 U.S. Supreme Court ruling prohibits the execution of anyone who was under age 18 at the time of a crime.

    If convicted in Carson's death, the maximum sentence Lovette could face is life in prison without parole.

    Posted tonight (8-11-2008), or technically on 8-12 Eastern time, is the following post about the DA's decision to move forward with the death penalty for Atwater:

    While the media wants to deify the victim they should go to the Cornwaulis Projects and find out how much time she spent there with Atwater and how much she was into a lot of things with him!Learn from people instead of taking everything the media says to heart!

    Interesting??? Defense strategy???? Or just another bit of smoke and mirrors...

    Although I'm opposed to the death penalty generally, if Eve's family supports this decision, I support theirs.

    Maybe Eve Carson didn't die in vain. Hopefully they can make some sense and changes in our system. But what a heavy price to pay, for the victim and her loved ones.

    Federal agency report recommends changes for N.C. probation

    Raleigh, N.C. A draft report from a federal agency that reviewed North Carolina's probation system was released Tuesday evening and includes 35 recommendations for improvements of various kinds.

    The draft was released the evening before state Department of Correction leaders are expected to meet with the agency.

    The DOC requested assistance in April from the National Institute of Corrections, a U.S. Justice Department agency.

    The request followed an internal probe into how probation officers handled the cases of Demario James Atwater, 22, and Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr., 17, both whom are charged with first-degree murder in the March 5 shooting death of Eve Marie Carson, a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill senior.

    The reviewers made 18 recommendations to improve operations and 17 to address management and personnel issues, including:

    Eve Carson Murder Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

    One of the two suspects accused in the death of University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson has pleaded not guilty to a federal kidnapping charge.

    During a hearing Wednesday in federal court in Greensboro, attorneys for 22-year-old Demario Athingyer also asked for a January 2010 trial date. But Judge James A. Beaty Jr. left that set for November.

    Athingyer also faces eight other charges, including carjacking resulting in death and carrying and using firearms during and in relation to carjacking. He could face the death penalty if convicted of either of those charges.
