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.

    *-How did this guy know her ATM number? You have to know the access code to use it. This had to either be someone she knew or he may have forced her to tell it. I have noticed a rash in fires that are used to cover murders.
