Slain US student`s photo used on Indian ad

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Eve Carson`s picture is being used to advertise a company called Jubeerich Consultancy.



Raleigh: The image of slain University of North Carolina Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson has turned up in an unlikely place: adorning billboards in southern India.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that Carson`s picture is being used to advertise a company called Jubeerich Consultancy, which offers study opportunities and job placements in Western countries.

It`s not clear how the company came across the photo of the Athens, Georgia native, who was abducted, robbed and killed on March 05, 2008.

Two men - Laurence Lovette Jr and Demario Atwater - are serving life sentences for Carson`s death.

The company did not respond to e-mails seeking comment, and a woman who answered the phone declined to give her name but said she had not seen the billboards.
