    TN - Erika 'Megan' Sharpton, 24, raped & murdered, Tullahoma, 2 July 2012

    I checked and didn't see any thread for this poor girl.

    A burned body left by the side of the road has been identified as Erika Megan Sharpton.

    I wonder if she had an ex-boyfriend or even ex-husband. Seems to be the way most of these tragedies end.

    What an ugly tragic end to the life of this young woman, for a motorist on the road to find her body burning!! I hope there will be some way to find and punish whoever is responsible for her death and why she had to die!!

    RIP Erika

    This is so terribly, terribly sad. She was so young and had so much ahead of her. I know we are all sick to death of this cruelty.

    I don't even know what to think anymore. It upsets me and infuriates me.

    May Erika Megan Sharpton rest in heavenly peace.

    Her lack of social media leads me to believe it was totally random, or someone very, very close. (Money could always be an issue, but she still had communications with someones.)

    I am leaning toward the close side.

    Did she live alone?

    Could be a clue??!!

    Let's hope!

    Later in the day, someone spotted a red 1995 Ford Mustang that had been reported stolen, which may be connected to the woman’s death. It was found outside of Tullahoma. No one was inside. Deputies transported it to a facility to process it for possible evidence.

    This young woman was loved and cherished. Her Service is planned for tomorrow. There's an obituary here for this pretty young woman. She has quite a number of siblings which may help in them breaking the case IMO. Somebody knows and someone will spill.

    Poor child. Prayers for her parents and loved ones. That is unimaginable.

    Slain Franklin County woman's kin set up reward fund

    As investigators probe the early July discovery of Erika Megan Sharpton's still-burning body in Franklin County, the nursing student's family has established a reward fund for information in her killing.

    After a week of investigation, authorities say they can name no suspects and still are seeking information in the slaying of the 24-year-old from Tullahoma, Tenn.

    Her sad story was on NG tonight. See partical video.

    http://www.hlntv.com/video/2012/07/2...rned-dead-road

    LE searched BF home, computer, took his DNA.
    She was found nude from waist down. Her car keys, her cell phone and I believe her pocketbook are still missing.

    LE are waiting for forensics to come back.

    I'll put up transcripts when they are posted.

    I saw this covered on NG tonight also. Very strange that she was suppose to meet with a family to interview as a caretaker yet no one has come forward to say she was there and the phone number for those people is now disconnected.
    The whole thing is very weird.
