Info sought on murder victim's car

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Investigators are asking if Bedford County residents saw any activity involving a Franklin County murder victim's car found Monday near Wartrace.

Erika Megan Sharpton's Ford Mustang was taken from Three Forks Bridge Road to Franklin County for close inspection.

Franklin County Sheriff Tim Fuller says investigators think someone other than the person who notified authorities saw the car sitting in the road.

Anyone who saw the Mustang is asked to call the Franklin County Sheriff's Department at (931) 967-2331 or (800) TBI-FIND.

A hot pink purse belonging to Sharpton, 24, of Tullahoma, is missing.

Sharpton's partially-burned body was found early Monday within a grass fire on Awalt Road in Franklin County.
