(Newser) – Police issued photos today of a "person of interest" in the killing of UNC-Chapel Hill student president Eve Carson, the News and Observer reports. The ATM camera shots show a black man, about 20, who used Carson's bank card and may have been driving her Toyota Highlander. "This is our biggest break so far in this case," said the police chief in Chapel Hill, NC.

Police are piecing together Carson's last actions on Wednesday using her cell phone records. She was last seen alive Tuesday by roommates who left her at home, studying; she may have gone out to make copies for school when she was killed in what "feels like a random crime," the police chief said.
