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.

Supposed murder of Michele Harris apparently took place in the Owego NY family home. Calvin Harris claims he is innocent. An extensive search never located a body or a weapon. His defense attorneys have argued that any number of tragic circumstances could have unfolded in those uncertain hours after the Sept. 11 terror attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. Around 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2001, the 35-year-old mother of four was late — again — for her waitressing shift at Lefty's, a rough-and-tumble bar and restaurant in Waverly, N.Y.. Her waitressing shift ended at 9 that night, and she sat in the parking lot and shared drinks with two co-workers. The three talked about the day's terrorist attacks before parting ways, and Michele Harris made the drive to her boyfriend's apartment in Smithboro, a hamlet about 10 miles east of Waverly. At about 11, the boyfriend walked Michele to her gold 2000 Ford Windstar. She got in and shut the door, and he leaned in the window. On Sept. 12, 2001, a crisp summer day, sunrise was 5:40. Between 5:30 and 6, Kevin Tubbs, a 23-year-old farmer, was driving his 10-foot-wide hay trailer north on Hagadorn Hill. He drove slowly because his vehicle lacked brakes, and he noticed something unusual. An SUV was parked at the end of the driveway, and a pickup truck, black or dark blue, was parked behind it, perpendicular to Hagadorn Hill Road. A man and a blonde-haired woman appeared to be having an argument. The woman, Tubbs would later say, matched the description of Michele Harris. At about 6 a.m., Waverly resident John Steele also was driving along Hagadorn Hill Road. He and a friend, unsettled by the terrorist attacks, had spent the night driving around and talking about their lives. As his truck passed 381 Hagadorn Hill Road, Steele also saw a truck at the end of the driveway. "Get in the car, just get in the damn car," Steele thought he heard the man say, listening through the slightly open passenger window of his truck.
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. Cops searched the home of David and Karen Swift multiple times since she went missing on October 30th, 2011, cops found no indication anything suspicious had occurred in the home, so were was the crime scene, were was Karen Swift murdered? 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?
