General Manager Robert North

Coffee County sheriff’s investigators are still waiting on results of an autopsy of local car dealer Mike Thompson. The 45 year-old Thompson died May 6 in a swimming accident at a home in Coffee County. Apparently Thompson dove into a pool at his residence on Fairview School Road and did not come back up. Meanwhile officials with the business say that they will continue to operate the Ford dealership on Highway 55. Robert North is the General Manager; Thompson’s mother, Brenda Mehring, will be involved in the dealership.
