Around 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 3, 2018, Keenan Carter, 33, was shot to death outside his vehicle at the dead end of Connell Road in South Fulton, Georgia, according to police.

Police said in recent months that Carter may have been meeting someone through an online dating app when he was killed.

"We received a phone call about 8 o'clock in the morning of a car being at the dead-end of Connell Road and White Tail Lane," Det. Nikkita Moss said, according to Fox5 Atlanta. "They noticed the car was there, both doors were open and it was still running. When the officer looked off into the field, he saw a body on the ground, about 20 or 30 feet from the car."


Police investigated his death, but the trail went cold. Moss took a look at the case in late 2021. She said Carter was speaking with several people on dating apps before his death, according to Fox5.

The detective believed that Carter was going to meet one of those people in person.

"I think that meeting is what led to his death," she said.

But authorities aren’t sure. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact police at (470) 240-1279.

According to a GoFundMe page created after Carter’s death his family needed help to cover funeral expenses.

“Keenan was well loved,” the page read. “Keenan was well known as an aspiring actor, and will be missed by all that he touched around the world. If you knew him you knew his smile and a person full of creativity.”
