Quotes from the news wire:
We found Carrie’s body on a Monday afternoon, so we know on Friday evening before Carrie was killed, she was in a pretty violent, domestic argument with her boyfriend. She actually was the primary aggressor. She and her boyfriend had an on-again, off-again relationship. The night before, we know Carrie stayed at a local hotel, which is not far from her residence. She was seen there… She went to a local 7-Eleven. She withdrew money out of the ATM... And then after the withdrawal of that money, that’s when it just seems that Carrie disappeared.
… He fully cooperated with investigators, he did some things that a person who is normally guilty for this type of crime, they would not do. He kept in contact with her family. So no, it does not surprise me that he passed the polygraph. He was a suspect for a number of years, but based on the most recent investigation, we were able to eliminate him as being a suspect.
The production company that has been working with us for Discovery has been very good about letting us do our job, so if it means having to put information out there for the public, utilize our crime lines here in the area — they want us to do that. They understand the investigation is first and foremost. That’s the priority. Then everything else is secondary to that.
When the show approached us about doing this, one of the things that really intrigued us was that we have always felt that the person responsible for Carrie’s death wasn’t still here in the area, so we felt this was a good way to get national exposure to this case in hopes that wherever this person’s at, maybe they shared something with somebody or told somebody about something… it just brings us one step closer to solving this case.
Isle of Wight County, it is a great place to live, to work, to raise kids, this is a small, tight-knight community. We are an oasis… We don’t have a lot of murders. When something like this happens, especially when it goes unsolved for this long, it does shake the foundation a little bit. People want to know if someone’s trying to take advantage of our quiet way of life here. The field had to have been known by somebody… It kind of reminds people this can happen here. This kind of gruesome crime, it can happen in our backyards.
