Authorities have recovered the body of Beverly Carter, the Arkansas real estate agent who disappeared after showing a home Thursday. THV11 reports her body was found in a shallow grave on a property in Pulaski County; the AP describes the location as that of the Argos concrete company. Officials headed there after suspect Arron Lewis was questioned for 12 hours; authorities say he admitted to kidnapping Carter, ABC News reports, but not to murdering her, and he didn't say where she was.

Lewis was booked into prison before investigators received information pointing to the property where Carter was buried, THV notes. Lewis' kidnapping charges are being changed to capital murder—but any link between Lewis and Carter remains mysterious. (More Beverly Carter stories.)
