College senior found shot dead in small Texas town

CORINTH, Texas (KXAN) — A University of North Texas senior was found dead inside her car in Corinth on Monday, marking the small North Texas town’s first homicide investigation in 17 years.

Twenty-one-year-old Amanda Clairmont, who was set to graduate in May, was found in a car parked in a vacant lot along an Interstate 35E service road — several miles southeast of Denton — KXAS reports.

The car’s lights were on and the passenger door was open, something that first caught an officer’s attention.

“You could see the crime scene tape around the whole perimeter of the area,” UNT student Shelley McCann said. “The scene, in general, looked like something out of CSI.”

McCann went on to say, “Knowing that someone actually killed someone right by our house and they’re still on the loose, that’s that’s pretty unsettling.”

Law enforcement is not saying what the motive for the killing may be. Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call Corinth police at 940-498-2017.
