Hit-and-run kills Tipton County motorcyclist

Star Staff Reports
A man was hit and killed last week while riding on his motorcycle.
Last Tuesday morning, June 19, Tommy Vermillion, 54, was struck in a fatal hit-and-run around 5 a.m. on Highway 51 near Tipton Road. The vehicle that hit Vermillion left the scene of the accident.
In about 24 hours, Vermillion’s family and the Munford Police Department got the answer to who was responsible. The family’s pleas were heard by the community and the MPD added to the initial information received of a white man in a dark Chevy Silverado featuring an NFL logo.
The tips pouring in led to the Munford Police Department making an arrest of 38-year-old Shane Rencarge from Brighton. Rencarge was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
Vermillion, who was heading to work that faithful day, leaves three sons. A Celebration of Life Service was held in his honor Saturday.
