The memorial service for Austin Sienk, the 27 year old homeless man from Utah who was struck by a train in Murfreesboro was held Saturday morning. It was held under a bridge where he lived. Those who called the bridge home had positive things to say while some broke down in tears. It was a sad, yet positive event that took place.
Sienk was struck and killed by a CSX freight train around 7 o'clock this past Sunday morning (10/18/2015). The man was said to have been wearing headphones while walking down the tracks near South Church Street, close to Middle Tennessee Boulevard. The train was heading south to Florida.
