Police Search For Clues In Nursing Student's Murder

Posted: Updated:

TULLAHOMA, Tenn. - Police could be getting closer to finding out what led up to the murder of a 24-year-old nursing student near Tims Ford Lake.

Police searched a trailer in Tullahoma on Monday in connection with the investigation into Erika Megan Sharpton's murder.

A driver discovered the burning body of 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.

No arrests have been made, but cadaver dogs have found "interesting evidence" in the area where Sharpton's body was discovered.

The Tullahoma woman's family has set up a reward fund for information leading to an arrest in the case. Contributions are being accepted at American City Bank.

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.
