Eve Marie Carson (November 19, 1985 – March 5, 2008) was a student at the University of North Carolina who was shot and killed on the morning of March 5, 2008, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States. She served as Student Body President and was a recipient of the Morehead-Cain Scholarship. Demario James Atwater, a 21-year-old resident of Durham, North Carolina was charged with her murder, and on May 24, 2010, Atwater pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in a plea bargain agreement that will have him serve two sentences of life in prison without the possibility of parole. A second suspect, 17-year-old Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr., was taken into custody early morning March 13, 2008. Later, investigators also connected Lovette to the January 2008 murder of 29-year-old Duke University engineering student Abhijit Mahato.
