Realtor's family, friends in shock over loss

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Those close to Beverly Carter sat in silence today at a press conference held by Pulaski County Sheriff's Office. Investigators discussed limited details of the missing real estate agent's death. Most of her friends and family members are still in shock.

"On a personal note, Beverly and I have been friends for 11 years now," said friend David Goldstein. "And there are no words for me to tell you how much she's going to be missed."

Volunteers and police searched for Carter for days until her body was found early Tuesday morning.

David Goldstein has been a friend of Carter's for years. With the shocking news of her death not even a day old, Goldstein, fellow co-workers and friends were too broken up to speak.

"If you had a sweet scale it was Beverly, and then there was sugar and then there was other sweeteners," Goldstein said. "That's how sweet she was. Now she was pretty feisty too."

Tuesday morning, Arron Lewis was arraigned and charged with capital murder. As deputies walked him out of jail, he made comments about the investigation.

"What he has to say, his defense, he can say whatever he likes," Goldstein said.

A statement from her company, Crye-Leike Realtors reads: "To those who knew and worked with Beverly, she was a gracious mentor, she had an infectious laugh that brightened the whole office. She will be sorely missed."

Goldstein expressed his gratitude for the hard work done by Pulaski County Sheriff's Office.

"I am in awe of how quickly and how tirelessly, they have performed their duties," he said. "Their family just got a lot bigger. Cry-Leike is their family now too. If they need us, we'll be there."

Carter's Funeral will be at 10am on Saturday at First Pentecostal Church in North Little Rock. A visitation will be on Friday from 5pm to 7pm.
