SFGate…JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — The estranged husband of an Arkansas woman found dead in Tennessee nearly two years ago denies any role in her death. David Swift told The Jonesboro Sun (http://bit.ly/1a4e2pG ) that he had nothing to do with the death of his wife, Karen Johnson Swift, and that he is fully cooperating with police who are investigating her slaying. Karen Swift disappeared Oct. 30, 2011, from her home near Dyersburg in western Tennessee. Her body was found Dec. 10, 2011, under kudzu bushes in a cemetery in Dyer County.
The night Karen Swift disappeared, she had gone to a party with friends while one of her daughters went to a friend’s house to stay the night. The daughter later called her mother and wanted to go home, according to police. Karen picked up her daughter, who later told police that when she went to sleep, her mother was in bed with her. David Swift spoke to his wife several times that night, but they didn’t have an argument or fight, he said. Karen Swift later left in her car, which was found hours later about one mile from the home with a flat tire, her decomposed body would be found weeks later. David Swift denies any wrongdoing.
Karen Swift went missing October 30th 2011. She was last seen leaving a Halloween party. Her car was found abandoned with one flat tire on the side of the road less than a half-mile from her house. Weeks of intense searching followed, until December 10, 2011 when her body was discovered just a few miles away off Harness Road. Swift’s body was found near Bledsoe cemetery. Investigators said they believe Swift was murdered and her body was dumped into a patch of withering kudzu. Local cops and the TBI have no suspects or person of interest two years after Karen Swift was murdered.
