Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box Released Car of Murdered Karen Swift Last Place She Was Known to be Alive, Bank Forgave Unpaid Balance In June. I am aware of a letter received from the Bank that held the loan on the white 2004 Nissan Murano SE 2WD with the VIN# JN8AZ08T64W219710 that Karen Swift was driving the morning she disappeared. The Bank (not a finance company) forgave the debt in June 2014, so Mr. Swift will not be responsible for the balance, the Bank sent a Form 1099-C to the IRS so the debt will be taken off of Mr. Swift's credit report. The white 2004 Nissan Murano SE 2WD was sold in June 2014 by a used car dealer.
Jim W. Horner, an Assistant District Attorney in Dyersburg TN, recently made the above post, (above the 'seeking information banner') to his facebook account. Jim W. Horner appears to be concerned that Karen Swift's vehicle was released to the Bank before anyone was indicted or arrested in her unsolved murder and rightly so. How can any evidence pulled from Karen Swifts vehicle be cross-examined in court if the vehicle is no longer in the property of the Sheriff and/or the District Attorney, it can't, and as such a defense attorney will/would have all such evidence thrown out.
Vehicles are seized and held for evidence in murder cases all the time if the vehicle appears to have some connection to the murder or if the vehicle was the last place known to be where the victim had been. Police, Sheriff Depts., State Police and Federal Agencies are exempt from releasing said vehicles to the lien holder if they are to be entered into evidence at trial, there is no time limit on when the vehicle will be released even after trial regardless of any lien on the car from a Bank or Finance Company. Drug dealers loose their vehicles all the time when seized by Police, Sheriff Depts., State Police or Federal Agencies to 'forfeiture laws' regardless of any lien on the car from a Bank or Finance Company.
Please note, there was damage that had to be repaired before sale, the sun roof had been smashed in while in the Sheriff Dept impound lot, it appears the DA and Sheriff did not want the owner to have the vehicle back and to cover up the damages and any possible contaminated evidence. This vehicle can now not ever be cross examined if needed in Court, what the hell, the vehicle was the last known place where Karen Swift was known to be on October 30th, 2011, the car is the crime scene and Sheriff Box has it wholesaled out?
KAREN SWIFT CAUSE OF DEATH- INJURIES TO HER BODY: Last Update 09/02/2012-Official Press Release -Dyer County Sheriff’s Office Swift Murder Investigation. As per Sheriff Box, Dyer County TN investigators observed injuries the body of Karen Swift sustained that appeared to have caused her death. An autopsy was performed on Karen Swift’s body by the Shelby County Medical Examiner’s Office in Memphis, the results of the autopsy was sealed under a court order for certain reasons and that the case is still under investigation. Early in the investigation we recovered Karen Swift’s cell phones after they were processed by lab personnel for latents and dna, we then requested the assistance of United States Secret Service in retrieving and processing information from her cell phones used to pinpoint the times and her movements at the time of her disappearance. “This processing with the Secret Service may provide highly detailed data, which may include the time of every movement that was made before, during and after her murder.” So, if the cause of death for Karen Swift was injuries to her body where is the blood spatter in the house or her car, none was found by TBI forensic agents. Multiple injuries to the body of Karen Swift would cause blood spatter. If blood spatter belonging to Karen Swift was found in the house the husband would be on trial right now.
I am still "SEEKING INFORMATION: ON THE ACTIVITY OF MURDERED KAREN SWIFT ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 29th 2011 AT THE DYERSBURG COUNTRY CLUB HALLOWEEN PARTY." According to the local newspaper, the State Gazette, Karen Swift had been to a Halloween party at the Dyersburg Country Club-The Farms 2100 Clubhouse Dr Dyersburg TN 38024 on Saturday evening, Oct. 29th 2011, the blond 5′ 5′” tall and 130 lb aerobic teacher was dressed as ‘Catwoman’ in a skintight black costume, similar to the one above. She reportedly arrived home sometime after midnight after picking up one of her daughters from a sleepover because she did not feel well. Karen Swift was reported missing on Sunday, Oct. 30 2011 in the early morn when her 2004 Nissan Murano was discovered near the intersection of Harness Road and Millsfield Highway with a flat tire. Did You see Karen Swift Saturday evening Oct. 29th, 2011 at the Country Club-The Farms? Was Karen Swift arguing with anyone, male or female in the Country Club-The Farms parking lot around 11:00 pm Saturday evening Oct. 29th, 2011, where are the video tapes?
In any police investigation of a murder or even a missing person case, the cops always want to know who was the last person the victim had contact with and were there any surveillance tapes of recent activity, if she had gone out for the night, a night of dancing and drinking like at the Dyersburg Country Club Halloween party then who was she with. It surely was not her husband who was back at their home, so who was she with, did she get into any altercations with anyone inside or outside of the Dyersburg Country Club Halloween party, where are the surveillance tapes?
Did Sheriff Box request the video tapes from the interior and exterior surveillance cameras at the Dyersburg Country Club-The Farms, does Sheriff Box have the video tapes from the surveillance cameras at the Dyersburg Country Club Halloween party of October 29th, 2011 and if he does not, why not? Just sayin.
