    Sounds like a botched carjacking.

    Hmmm. Says police suspected the killer was in the car with her and forced her to drive to the parking lot where she was killed.

    Perhaps this was one of those situations where someone abducts a person at gunpoint and then makes them drive to an atm for money. Perhaps he ordered her to drive there and then wanted to take the car and she refused? Who knows? I'll keep looking.

    Another link describing a bit about finding her body. Someone saw her window smashed out but didn't report it. A person who saw her body slumped over the wheel at 11 am called the cops. Apparently the bullet passed through her chest and broke the window. That's how I'm seeing it. There sure isn't a lot to go on with this case. Most of the links I'm seeing are to memorial events and the like. She was apparently quite well regarded in the community as a retired teacher.

    After reading the links you posted. I am thinking the same thing as you. Maybe she refused to go to the ATM? Maybe an old student?

    Weird the thought of an old student passed through my mind as well!

    From what I've seen it sounds like this crime took place in a bad part of town where people don't rat out criminals. There was an article online from a member of the NAACP complaining about how people in the community aren't coming forward with information about Myra's murder and how that's a big problem in other crimes.

    And here's a new article one year out from the crime where they say she died from gunshot wounds to the head:

    http://www.capitalgazette.com/news/one-year-later-police-still-searching-for-myra-cason-s/article_1763ecc7-e737-5c2e-a755-249056e093a1.html


    So was she shot once in the chest or numerous times in the head? Frustrating when you can't even pin down the specifics of the crime.
