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. The media hype is all pure speculation.

Supposed murder of Karen Swift apparently occurred in the Dyersburg family home so claims the Sheriff but he can not prove it. Dyer County District Attorney Phil Bivens speaks with Dyer County Sheriff's investigators and TBI agents during the a Nov. 10, 2011, search of the Swift's house on Willie Johnson Road. On that day, agents with the TBI's Violent Crimes Response Team in Memphis processed potential evidence at the residence. Forensic agents were reportedly at the house because it was the last place Swift was seen alive and a part of the process of the investigation. Bivens says there has not been enough evidence presented to him to warrant an arrest.

It does not appear from sheriff reports that the crime scene was near the access road to Bledsoe Cemetery where the body of Karen Swift was found on December 10th, 2011, so how did she get there?
