Info sought from anyone who saw Sharpton car

Sunday, July 22, 2012

Franklin County authorities want to talk to anyone who saw the Ford Mustang belonging to murder victim Erika Sharpton of Tullahoma being driven in Bedford County early Monday, July 2.

"We need to talk with anyone who saw the car or knows who might have been driving it or who was in it," Sgt. Chris Guess of the Franklin County Sheriff's Department said Friday.

Sharpton's red Mustang was found that morning on Three Forks Bridge Road in Bedford County. Her partially-burned body was discovered several hours earlier on the shoulder of Awalt Road in rural Franklin County and her purse was recovered from Rock Creek near Estill Springs.

Several Bedford County residents have been interviewed in connection with Sharpton's death, investigators have said.

Those with information should call the Franklin County Communications Center, (931) 967-2331; investigator Todd Hyndman, (931) 962-0123 ext. 2110; or the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, 1-800-TBI-FIND.

A reward account has been set up by Sharpton's family at American City Bank in Tullahoma.
