Benefit for Megan Sharpton

Erika Megan Sharpton

As investigators from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department and the TBI continue to investigate the murder of 24-year-old Megan Sharpton, her family is establishing a reward for the arrest of the person or persons who killed her. Meagan’s sister, Leah Sharpton, says a benefit car wash is planned for this weekend.  Auto Pride number two (located between A-1 Pawn and Lyndsey’s Boutique on Jackson Street) will host the fundraiser Saturday from 10:00 – 2:00.  T-shirts will also be sold.  All money raised will go to the reward fund.  Anyone wanting to contribute to the reward fund may do so by sending the donation to the Megan Sharpton account at any branch of American City Bank. Sheriff’s investigators have interviewed a number of people in Coffee, Franklin and Bedford Counties. Franklin County Sheriff Tim Fuller stated that he feel that there are people out there who saw Megan on July first who haven’t come forward and told us about seeing her. Meanwhile, Leah Sharpton stated that she hopes that anyone who saw her sister on that day will take time to call the sheriff’s department.
