Slain US student's photo used on Indian ad

Slain US student`s photo used on Indian ad 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.
