That same day police also discovered the woman’s car on East 25th Street. They said evidence revealed the car was recently driven. The North Carolina license plate number was also missing and was listed as stolen.

Winston-Salem Police said they believe McAllister and Carter were meeting to sell drugs.

Cater was last seen in the car with McAllister before she was supposed to meet with a family member who later reported her missing.

McAllister is in the Forsyth County Detention Center on a $150,000 secured bond.

Police are still investigating Carter’s death.
