Reward Fund Set Up In Woman's Death

Posted: Updated:

TULLAHOMA, Tenn. (AP) - The family of a nursing student found dead at Tims Ford Lake has established a reward fund for information about her death.

Erika Megan Sharpton's sister told The Tullahoma News contributions are being accepted at American City Bank.

A driver discovered the burning body of the 23-year-old Sharpton early July 2 at the Awalt Bridge in Franklin County. Her car was found later the same day about 20 miles away.

Her death was ruled a homicide and detectives said preliminary reports indicated that Sharpton died of blunt force trauma.

Franklin County Sheriff Tim Fuller said a number of people likely saw Sharpton on July 1, but haven't come forward to tell police where they saw her.

Anyone with information has been asked to call the Franklin County Sheriff's Office at 931-967-2331 or the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
