    I own a pizzeria right by that carmike…it’s sad and scary that something like this happened. I pray for the family affected and our blessings to you.

    Give out a photo of the woman. It would be helpful to the public if the police are wanting our help. A name means nothing to those of us who might have seen her at the theater, or seen her with someone..We can’t help without a face to jog memories..

    I am puzzled at one thing, if in fact this vehicle was there since friday why didn’t the movie theatre management check when they left Friday, night if anyone was inside, why didn’t management communicate with each other Saturday that the vehicle had been there since the day before. What kind of management does Carmike hire that obviously couldn’t care less or is not attentive enough to notice that there has been a vehicle parked in the same spot over 24 hrs. Seriously…My heart goes out to the girls family
