Cory Sain


A man accused of selling heroin to a woman who later died was charged with allegedly leaving her body Friday at Nice Mill Dam, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s detective reported.

Cory T. Sain, 27, of Howard Road near Murfreesboro, was charged Saturday with abuse of the corpse of Tiffany Vickers, tampering with evidence and possession of heroin for resale by Det. Joseph Duncan, the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputy Sean White reported the body of Vickers, 31, of North Cove in Murfreesboro was found by visitors to Nice Mill on Friday night.

Duncan reported Sain allegedly told him Vickers used the illegal drug in his car and later stopped breathing. Sain told Duncan he and a passenger allegedly left her body in the parking lot, the RCSO said.

The passenger has not been charged, the RCSO said.

Sain allegedly removed a message about the drug transaction from social media, the detective reported.

Det. Lt. Todd Sparks said additional details could not be released at this time.

“This is still a very active investigation,” Sparks said.

Sain is being held on a $110,000 bond at Rutherford County Adult Detention Center. A hearing is set Jan. 27 in Rutherford County General Sessions Court.
