Virginia Beach City
Virginia, USA

Police on Monday identified the woman who was found dead Sunday morning in Kings Grant as Mary Rachel Carson, 18, and classified her death as a homicide. The medical examiner determined that Carson - known to friends as Shellie - suffered trauma to her head, possibly causing her death. Authorities have not identified any suspects or a possible motive. Carson's body was discovered under a tree near a pink-and-black bicycle, close to the traffic circle off Newcastle Road on the morning of Aug. 14. [2005]. Carson was last seen alive at a 7-Eleven store at 425 Kings Grant Road, where she visited friends.

August 2006: A framed photo of Mary "Shellie" Carson white-water rafting with her co-workers sat next to the Burger King register. It was a painful reminder of the close ties the 18-year-old woman killed last August in Kings Grant had with co-workers. Carson worked at the Burger King at the intersection of Virginia Beach Boulevard and Rosemont Road for about a year before she died.

If an evening could be both beautiful and eerie, it was last Monday [Aug 14, 2006] in Kings Grant. Close to 300 people showed up at the Kings Grant traffic circle to remember Mary Rachel "Shellie" Carson , whose body was discovered under a tree close to the circle exactly one year ago. She was 18.As the sky slowly changed from blue to pink before the sun faded away, the community gathered around a garden bench.

Contributions may be made to: "Justice for Shellie", 1083 Independence Blvd, Box 163, Virginia Beach, VA 23455. This group was formed to assist the Virginia Beach Police in finding out who murdered Shellie.
