Where it Happened
A couple of out-of-town friends who've spent time here in the Southern Part of Heaven have been asking about precisely where last week's tragedy happened. Above is a photo of the very spot (below is a map pinpointing it: look for the little yellow figure). I drove by it the other day and based on the location of a pile of flowers, I suspect Eve Carson died near the mailboxes in the left-center of the photo.
If you visit the spot it is very hard to believe that what happened there did indeed occur. It is such a pretty and peaceful little corner of the world.
I have a feeling that this one is going to leave a lingering scar on Chapel Hill.

As you might imagine, I've been following this from afar. Street View lends a surreal sense of intimacy to a pretty horrifying event.
