    NC - Misty Carter, 22, found dead off Blue Ridge Parkway, 19 Oct 2009

    Found yesterday along the Blue Ridge Parkway and still unidentified.

    Woman's Body Found on Parkway

    A woman's body has been found on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and authorities say it appears it was dumped.

    The body of the unidentified white female was found around 6:30am near mile post 395. Parkway rangers and Buncombe County deputies responded to the scene, and they are calling the death suspicious.

    The victim is described as 18 to 30 years old, 5'5" to 5'7" tall, 160-190 lbs., with light brown or possibly dyed auburn hair. She had a piercing in her right nostril, and five or six piercings in her left ear. She also had a tattoo on her lower back.

    The State Bureau of Investigation and FBI are also aiding the investigation.

    The Parkway was cloed at the French Broad River bridge, but is now open to mile post 399.

    I wish there was a tattoo artist place where we could try to find out whose work that is, especially since artists are usually distinct. It looks professional. Usually you have to show ID, and it would be a good place to start.

    It's unlikely she has been reported missing yet, correct? The body was just dumped and found which means people who might miss her might not know she is gone yet.

    "Lt. Ross Dillingham of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office said the agency has received about 10 calls from people concerning the victim. He said he hopes to be able to release the woman’s identity soon."

    Investigators believe they are closer to learning the identity of a woman whose body was found Monday morning along the Blue Ridge Parkway, a detective said today.

    Lt. Ross Dillingham of the Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office said the agency has received about 10 calls from people concerning the victim. He said he hopes to be able to release the woman’s identity soon.

    “We’re following up on some leads,” Dillingham said.

    An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning, he said.

    Investigators called the death suspicious.

    Fairview resident Jerry Knaus said he found the naked body lying in the dirt a few feet from the roadway while driving south on the parkway for a hike at Mount Pisgah.

    Looks like they're closer to identifying her. May she rest in peace, and get justice soon.

    A note, the news story held an interview with a local tattoo artist who said he received a visit from the sheriffs dept inquiring about the tattoo.

    LE also mentioned they can't develop POI's until the person has been identified. I thought I'd place it here in case anyone could possibly ID her from another case. No ID was located on the body according to the news report. I'm hoping for a quick ID, thanks everyone.

    I called the Buncombe County Sherrif's Dept. He told me she is IDd and they just haven't released it yet. That was quick. I know that area. It's a great place to run away to. So sad. Such a beautiful place...

    She sure was beautiful, and pregnant, too. From Watcher's link:
    Authorities are not releasing a cause of death until an autopsy is completed tomorrow.

    Deputies are following leads on a possible suspect, but are not identifying them at this time.
    They may not be releasing the cause of death, but it looks like it was a murder. Another pregnant woman murdered.

    NC - Body of Misty Carter, 21, found burned on Blue Ridge Parkway

    "A murder victim's mother and sister say they don't know why anyone would kill their loved one and her unborn baby. Crystal Branson says she heard from her sister, Misty Carter last around 11 Sunday night after spending the weekend together. Crystal says Misty had just found out she was going to have a baby.

    She said, "Everything was coming together, she had her boyfriend back, she found out she was pregnant, she got a car, everything in her life was turning around and somebody stole it from her."

    Crystal called the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office Monday night after hearing a description of the victim found on the Blue Ridge Parkway on the news. She was able to identify her sister by her blue fingernails and tatoo."

    "ASHEVILLE, NC (WBTV) - Deputies in Buncombe County are investigating a murder mystery along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

    The body of Misty Carter, 21, was found on the side of the parkway early Monday morning.

    The sheriff's office is looking at her death as a homicide, but they do not have a suspect.

    Investigators also say Carter was pregnant. At this time, they have several leads in the case.

    Sheriff Van Duncan says Carter was not reported missing before she was found.

    The sheriff's department says Carter's body was found by a passing motorist near mile marker 395 on Monday at 6:30 a.m.

    An autopsy was planned for Wednesday at Bowman Gray Medical Center in hopes of determining the exact cause of death."
