Real Estate Agent Found Buried in Shallow Grave After Showing Vacant House

by | Sep 30, 2014

(Jeff Sorg, OnlineEd) – The body of  Beverly Carter, a real estate agent from Arkansas who had gone missing Thursday, has been found buried in a shallow grave about 25 miles from where she was last seen, according to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.

Carter’s last phone call was to her husband, Carl Carter, according to a report filed by CNN. When there was no further word from her, he went to the home where she said she’d be and found her car and personal belongings, but found no sign of her.

According to authorities, about 200 volunteers spent their Sunday searching for Carter who had been missing since showing a vacant house on Thursday. Carter’s body was found Monday in a shallow grave in Cabot, a suburb of Little Rock, AR.

Aaron Lewis was taken into police custody on Monday. Lewis subsequently admitted to kidnapping Carter, but did not admit to killing her, according to a Tuesday morning report by Good Morning America.

As Lewis was escorted out of court Tuesday, he reversed course and told reporters that he wanted to plead guilty to the charges of kidnapping and capital murder, adding, “I just want this all over with,” according to a report filed by CNN.

On video from CNN affiliates KTHV and KARK, police are shown escorting Lewis to a police car. Reporters ask him whether he killed Carter. Twice, he says that he didn’t.

As officers place Lewis in the back seat of a squad car, a reporter asked, “Why Beverly?”

“Because she was just a woman who worked alone, a rich broker,” Lewis says.
