Sheriff Box Says New Leads In Karen Swift Murder Investigation  …Local 24 spoke with Sheriff Jeff Box today. He said a number of people have recently come forward with new information and that the case is still active. In fact, he says a detective works the case every day and that the case is not considered cold. Sorta heard all of this before from Sheriff Box including he was close to an arrest, several times, in the past. Problem is with this “new information” is that Sheriff Box was never able to determine where the actual crime scene was located and what was the actual murder weapon and on top of all that Sheriff Box released the car back to the bank that Karen Swift was last known to be driving during the early morning hours of October 30, 2011, he lost the chain of any evidence obtained from that car.
On Friday February 19th, 2016, the same day that WATN did the story on Dyer County Sheriff Box New Leads In Karen Swift Murder Investigation, Mary Jo Ola a reporter for Local 24 Memphis TN contacted me at 4:32 pm and asked me to do a Skype interview concerning the unsolved murder of Karen Swift, I agreed and she Skyped me at 5:24 pm and we did a 21 minute interview that she video tape recorded. Apparently, so far, Mary Jo Ola at Local 24 Memphis TN has not released the taped interview in which I went into great detail about all the circumstantial evidence that I have discovered that indicates David Swift did not kill Karen Swift and that others who should have been looked at by law enforcement in the murder of Karen Swift have not been interviewed.

09/21/12 – Dyersburg , TN – Dyer County Awaiting Arrest In Karen Swift Case: The Dyer County Grand Jury meets the second week of October. It’s unclear if they will take up the Karen Swift murder case. It’s been almost an entire year since Swift was murdered in Dyersburg . The sheriff’s department has never made an arrest. They say there is a person of interest, but so far they aren’t naming any names. Some people in Dyer County are concerned the killer could still be living among them. “They need to find out who did that because everyone is on edge as far as getting out and riding in the country,” said Rob Roberson. Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box says his office has looked at several people they think could be connected to the swift murder and narrowed it down to one. Box says they are waiting on nearly a hundred pieces of evidence still being examined by the TBI before an arrest is made. “It makes me feel uncomfortable you know. If there is a serial killer running around or something my wife goes out to the store at to places,” said Rob Roberson. A judge ordered Swift’s cause of death be sealed and not released until the trial. The Dyer County Sheriff’s Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are jointly investigating Karen Swift’s murder. The Dyer County Sheriff’s Department requests any person with information about this case contact them at 731-285-2802 or call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.


DYERSBURG: Attorney Steve Farese talks about Karen Swift murder case: “I don’t want to speak badly about Karen,” said attorney Steve Farese. “But there were some things going on that were quite unusual, and there could be more than one suspect. According to Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box, he has looked at several people in Karen Swift’s murder, but has narrowed it down to one. Karen Swift disappeared Halloween 2011. Her car was found near her house and her body was found a month later not far from there. Sheriff Box says the person of interest is not a suspect and no suspect will be named until an arrest is made. Over a hundred pieces of evidence are still being examined by the TBI Crime Lab. News Channel 3 tried to talk to Swift’s husband David but no one came to the door. According to court records Swift was in the process of filing for divorce when she disappeared. “There’s still a lot of fear out here. My parents think about it all the time,” said Zack Walton. Zach Walton lives just down the street from the Swift family. The fact that there’s never been an arrest in the murder frightens Zach Walton, but having a person of interest makes him feel a little better. “If they did find them that would be great. It would be a great help to the community and get everybody out of fright,” said Zach Walton. Swift`s cause of death has been sealed by a judge and will not be revealed until the trail.
