Irina, 20 year old North Carolina student was found dead next to her vehicle. She was strangled, it is unknown whether she was strangled by hand or by a ligature, it is also unknown if she was sexually assaulted, that information is being kept close to the detective vest.
She was last seen at a credit union and then a coffee shop all before 11AM, by 1:15PM her car was found crashed along with her dead body miles away from campus at the banks of the Catawba River. It looked as though she ran off the road. The police chief said it was strange for anyone to be in that area.
Greta Van Susteren interviewed her friend and brother, she asked the following question:
Van Susteren: "Did she say anything about whether anyone was giving her a difficult time, whether she was being stalked or had any trouble?"
Wilkerson: " I'm not at liberty to say or discuss that kind of thing."
This tells me that YES there was someone giving her a hard time and maybe that person followed her, ran her off the road and killed her.
I will keep you posted on any developments.
