Grisly Autopsy Report of Murdered UNC Student Body President Eve Carson Killed After Shot Multiple Times
The heinous murder of Eve Carson, the popular president of UNC’s student body shocked the campus of Chapel Hill and the country earlier this year. Her body was found on March 5, 2008 the intersection of Hillcrest Drive and Hillcrest Circle. Original reports stated that she died of multiple gun shots to the head.
Some three months later, the autopsy of Eve Carson is being made public. The autopsy states that Eve Carson was shot 5 times. One thing is for certain after reading the autopsy reports, NC should bring back the firing squad or hanging for the two suspects, Demario Atwater and Lawrence Lovett Jr., who committed the crime. NC may want to think about a public stoning. Both are charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Eve Carson.
Carson’s autopsy report lists six gunshot wounds, but says two were probably from the same bullet, according to North Carolina’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Her autopsy — released after a North Carolina newspaper filed a court motion to have it unsealed — describes wounds to various parts of Carson’s body. It says shotgun wounds to her head and hand “most likely represent a single shot with the hand acting as an intermediate target.”
One of the other four wounds was also a gunshot to her head.
A separate, handwritten summary of the medical examiner’s report says Carson was “shot multiple times” and found lying on her back, with one arm bent behind her head.
The autopsy says sexual assault testing was done. It does not say whether any sign of sexual assault was found.
Why did they have to kill her? The whole incident was about a robbery. The two suspects abducted and kidnapped Eve Carson and forced her to give them access to her ATM account where they withdrew $1400 over a two day period. Eve Carson’s final minutes are documented HERE.
Court documents released Friday say Carson was kidnapped from her apartment and forced to provide her abductors with ATM access to her bank account before she was shot to death in the early hours of March 5.
The documents — applications for search warrants — say a confidential informant told police in the days after the death that Atwater had told her he and Lovette had entered Carson’s home through an open door and forced Carson to accompany them in her car.
The informant said she had talked with Atwater after a picture was displayed on television showing someone attempting to use Carson’s ATM card at a convenience store two days after Carson’s body was found.
The informant said the two men drove Carson to an ATM, obtaining her PIN number from her.
“The CW [informant] learned that Carson was forced into the back seat with Atwater, and Lovette drove Carson’s vehicle,” the court documents said. “That information is consistent with video footage taken from an ATM camera on that date.”
The witness told police Atwater said the two got about $1,400 from Carson’s account. Bank records show that was approximately the amount taken from the account over a two-day period, the documents said. (CNN)
