VIRGINIA BEACH--For seven years, Shellie Carson's family has waited for the day someone would be charged with her murder. 

The 18-year-old was killed in 2005 and her body left not far from her home in the Kings Grant neighborhood.  Her bicycle was nearby.  

Police said she was riding home from a 7-11 early on the morning of August 14. 2005 when she was beaten to death.  Her body was found just after 6:00 a.m. and investigators believe she was killed between 4:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

A bench still sits in the traffic circle not far from where Shellie was found. A plaque reads "In loving memory of Shellie Carson whose life was senselessly taken on August 14, 2005."

Anyone with information about the crime can call 1-888-LOCK-U-UP or contact the Va. Beach Police Cold Case Homicide Unit at 385-4241 or e-mail at cchu@vbgov.com

There's a $40,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest/conviction of her killer.

Each month, the Carsons attend a "Parents of Murder Victims" support group, including the one at seven tonight at the Saltmeadow Bay Apartments clubhouse, located at 744 Saltmeadow Bay Drive.
