MURDERED: Shakara Carter

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds

When Shakara Carter is found strangled to death on a dead-end road in Grand Rapids, Michigan, she’s days away from testifying against a serial rapist. But she’s also one of about two dozen sex workers killed in the area over the years…and unlike some of those victims, Shakara’s killer is elusive. 


If you have any information about Shakara’s case, please contact the Grand Rapids Police Department at 616-456-3400.
