Twenty-two-year-old Michael Elix Carter was murdered in his Lawton apartment on April 25th, 2013.

Michael was an Altus, Oklahoma native and had only recently moved to Lawton about two months prior. He had moved in with two friends of his, and started working a good job at a local restaurant.

It is believed that the two suspects knocked on the door, shooting as soon as Michael had answered. At the time, he was the only one at home, his two roommates were at work. Law enforcement believes that Michael was not the target of the killers, that he was killed by accident, with the killers shooting without realizing who he was. 911 was called by a neighbor, and authorities arrived on the scene quickly, but too late.

As amazing as social media is, helping us stay in touch with loved ones and even helping detectives solve crimes, it can play a dastardly role in people’s lives as well. Michael’s mother learned, via Facebook, that her son had been killed.

Michael was a loving, and fun soul. He loved his mom, and he didn’t deserve what happened to him. He doesn’t deserve not to have justice.

It is believed that the people who killed Michael were driving a two-door, black Honda hatchback at the time of the murder. They are described as being three white males.
