New Jersey woman questions brother's Macon Co. death

MACON CO., AL (WSFA) - Kherie Cameron could hardly contain her emotions when talking about the circumstances surrounding her brother's death. 26-year old Carl Cameron died after his car ran off U.S. Highway 29 sometime after midnight last Wednesday.

"They told me they searched and just found the car," said Cameron.

Cameron says state troopers responded but never did find her brother. It wasn't until a towing company employee at the scene reportedly heard a 'moaning' sound in the bushes. That employee, according to Cameron, notified troopers but Carl Cameron's body wasn't found until the next day on Friday.. more than 24 hours after the wreck.

The exact location of the body was roughly 40 feet from the vehicle just inside the woods inside the tree line.

Back in Montgomery the only thing the Alabama Department of Public Safety is saying is there was a single car accident with a fatality. Troopers have also not released the cause of the crash at this time.

Ms. Cameron also questions the Macon County Sheriff's Department as to why they didn't do a thorough search. WSFA 12 News stopped by the sheriff's department to get the sheriff's take on the matter and was told he wasn't in.

"He loved animals," said Cameron.

Kherie Cameron says her brother Carl had earned his undergraduate degree from Tuskegee University in animal science and had plans to become a veterinarian.

On the night of the crash Carl Cameron was alone and headed home.
