"I heard Karen Swift was found at the graveyard up here on Bledsoe," said resident Madeline Mann.
Mann said she has followed the case of missing 44-year-old Swift from the beginning. "Whoever done it is sick," said Mann. "You shouldn't do that to someone." Swift, a mother of four, picked up her daughter from a Halloween party in late October and has not been seen since. Days after her disappearance, her car was found near her home.

ABC Action News.....DYERSBURG, TN— A body was found in Dyersburg Saturday afternoon and it may be that of a missing woman. Family and friends of Karen Swift are on edge, waiting to find out if the body is hers. She's the 44 year old mother who vanished 2 months ago. The body was found less than 5 miles from the Swift family home. Investigators say the body is badly decomposed and needs to be identified by the medical examiner's office in Memphis.
Investigators never named her husband as a suspect. "He doesn't have that type of heart," a friend of the family Angela Naifeh told abc24 news a few weeks ago. "He loved her. He didn't want the divorce. They've already been through one prior. He's a good person who is heartbroken and crushed and doesn't know what to do." TBI searched the family home, retrieved phone records, and other evidence was sent to a crime lab. This case has made national news, even appearing on the Nancy Grace Show, more from this source...
There are no other missing person cases in the Dyersburg TN area.
