Crime Stoppers Tips On Carson Case

Lawyers for two men accused of killing University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson want all Crime Stoppers information on the case.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Tuesday that lawyers for 22-year-old Demario Atwater and 18-year-old Laurence Lovette want all the tips the private organization received.

The 22-year-old Athens, Ga., woman was found dead on a Chapel Hill street in March.

Police decide which information from Crime Stoppers is put in the case file, which is shared with defense attorneys.

Defense attorneys want to see what tips police did not pursue. The newspaper reported a Crime Stoppers call led authorities to Atwater.

Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran said he's concerned the request could discourage people from calling Crime Stoppers.
