FOX NEWS Memphis, Tn - Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box says they recovered an unidentified body in tall weeds near Bledsoe Cemetery, off Harness Road in Dyersburg early Saturday afternoon.
The body has been confirmed to be that of missing mom, Karen Swift. "Frost and winter conditions killed the vegetation, making the body visible within a few feet," said Box. Harness Road is off Highway 78.
Crime scene tape was still draped around the weeded area on Sunday, marking the spot where the body was recovered. Before the vegetation was eliminated, Box said, "no one could've seen the body from where it was at."
