    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 :rose:

    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?

    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.

    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.

    I want more info on this interview - such as:

    How did she come to hear about the position? Who and How did she contact to express interest? Where was the interview to take place?

    This interview concerns me. My hackles are up.

    The first thing I thought of was Craigslist might be where she found the advertisement--people turn to CL a lot for those types of positions. I always wonder if advertiser and the person responding will be meeting in a public place and I just know they don't. So dangerous.
