CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Investigators in North Carolina are searching for a possible suspect in the slaying of the University of North Carolina's student body president.

Police have released two surveillance photos of a man that were taken as he used the victim's ATM card in Chapel Hill.

They show the suspect driving a sport utility vehicle that may have belonged to the victim, Eve Carson. Officials have also released a picture of the baseball cap the suspect appears to be wearing in the surveillance images.

Carson, was found shot Wednesday morning on a street about a mile from campus. Her truck was found the next day. Police say it looks like Carson was the victim of a random crime.

Meanwhile, the university has held two memorial services for Carson, and a third is likely after spring break.

The school's board of trustees is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
