Heather Michele Cohen at HMC Investigations Gives Her Take On The Sex, Lies, and Missing Video Tape in Unsolved Karen Swift Murder

Heather Michele Cohen at HMC Investigations Gives Her Take On The Sex, Lies, and Missing Video Tape in Unsolved Karen Swift Murder. Ms. Cohen has implied that murdered Karen Swift had a somewhat sordid sex history that included adult photos and videos, on December 9, 2018 Ms. Cohen wrote : "I spoke with another close friend of the victim’s who, among other things, states that the victim told her that she’d had “risky pictures” taken with other girls." Ms. Cohen goes on with: "I spoke with a close friend of the victim’s who states that the victim “confided” in her that she was involved in something she wasn’t proud of (for money). This witness also confirms much of the rumors about the couple that the victim went to the party with." Ms. Cohen further states: "I confirmed the break in at The Farms Golf Club were the only thing stolen was the security video tapes and cameras. Employees of the Farms Country Club have given statements confirming the altercation between the prominent man’s daughter and the victim on the night in question. However, they were told to deny it if anyone asked. The victim had been in at least two altercations with other two women." Ms. Cohen sums it up: "Though I will admit that none of this information “clears” the victim’s husband, I have to consider the fact that there are several factors that point to the “swinger couple” as well as the woman whom the victim got into the altercation with at the Halloween party at the The Farms Golf Club Dyersburg TN."... I agree with HMC, everything she claims abut murdered Karen Swift is the truth, in fact I wrote about all of this over 5 years ago during my investigation in the "who did it" of murdered Karen Swift.
Back on Thursday, January 09, 2014 I wrote: Unsolved Karen Swift Murder a Tale of Sex, Lies and Missing Video Tapes. I, Bill Warner Investigations, had been hired by a friend of the Swift family in to look into the unsolved murder of Karen Swift that occurred after she went to a Halloween party at the The Farms Golf Club in Dyersburg TN on October 29th, 2011. CNN HLN has profiled the unsolved murder of Karen Swift on Jane Velez Mitchell and Nancy Grace numerous times and I have been on the panel discussing the case three times since November 2011. 
First let me tell you that I plan on focusing a burning hot spotlight on those people responsible for introducing Karen Swift to her new ' Swinger lifestyle' that most likely led to her murder on October 30th, 2011. Was this a sex crime, rape? Was this a crime of passion or revenge? Who carried her nude body to the graveyard and why there?
RESPONSE FROM DYERSBURG RESIDENT ON SAT 7/20/2019;
 Dear Mr. Warner,

Unfortunately Mrs. Swift is just one of the many cases here in Dyersburg that seem to keep going unsolved, and they keep piling up. People are being murdered but it seems we hear nothing else once the body is found. We need someone like you to come in and figure out what’s going on, is our law enforcement incompetent or simply covering it all up? We deserve better than that, we deserve to raise our children in better conditions than these!! I love Dyersburg, my children love it but it’s become too dangerous to even allow them to play outside without constant supervision. It doesn’t make sense for so much ‘big city’ crime to happen in such a small town and everyone keeps turning their heads. I know you have lots of other important projects your working on but I beg you to look into what’s been going on here and you will be shocked!! Thank you for taking time to read my email!

Sincerely,
A Deeply Concerned Citizen


I was directly working for David Swift in 2014 but only after he sent me his medical records. David Swift had 2 surgeries on his left knee, repair rupture left patella and quad tendon, most recent 4/26/2011 and then re-injured left knee again on 10/25/2011 (documented) since then had been wearing immobilizer hinged knee brace and using 2 crutches as per medical report which I have, impossible for him to move or carry a body on 10/30/2011 when Karen Swift was murdered. I since have had the same injury and similar surgery to my right knee, it takes over a year to recover, pain is constant.

Unsolved Murder of Karen Swift: Her Car Found on Millsfield Hgwy Going in Wrong Direction From Her House on Willie Johnson Rd Dyersburg Tn with a flat tire. Karen Swift apparently left her home at 65 Willie Johnson Rd Dyersburg Tn around 5:00 am on October 30th, 2011 heading out to finish a cleaning job for Mary Claire Hopper at a house on Walnut Street in Trimble TN. Karen Swift could have turned left of right on Millsfield Hgwy off of Harness Rd when she got the flat tire, but she would have been on the opposite side of the road (west side) from where her car was found (east side). There were no signs of foul play, no drag marks in the dirt, no blood on the car or on the ground around the car and yet her clothes were found in the brush to the right of the car.
"A screw in a radial tire will not go flat right away" there is no telling how long that screw in the tire of Karen Swift's car had been there before it went flat, PI Bill Warner. The rubber around the screw seals itself for a period of time, just depends the location of the screw in the tire when you park the car. A nail in a tire will leak air much quicker.
One of the last places Karen Swift would have known to be alive or dead would have been in the car she had been driving on the morning of October 30th, 2011. The Sheriff released her car back to the bank that owned it in June of 2014, so much for any crime scene. 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 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 quickly resold in June 2014 by a used car dealer.
Back on November 10, 2011 A Distraught: Cathy Bona, a friend of the missing 44-year-old Karen Swift, said her friends didn't know what to believe about her disappearance. Cathy Bona, said: You hear so many different things on a day-to-day basis about what's found that you don't know what to believe until you officially hear it.' Friends of the woman have come forward, saying they suspect foul play because Mrs Swift would never voluntarily leave her family.
KAREN SWIFT LIFESTYLE: David Swift's attorney Steve Farese said he did not want to speak badly of murdered Karen Swift. "I don't want to speak badly about Karen," said attorney Steve Farese. "But were some things going on that were quite unusual." Prominent attorney Steve Farese is talking about Karen Swift, the Dyer County mother who was murdered five months ago. Farese is representing Swift's husband David who has not been charged with anything. Farese thinks little of talk David Swift could be his wife's killer. "A lot of people say that. Those people are ignorant and don't know what they are talking about," he said. Farese says his investigation has uncovered some suspects. He says he has names of more than one person and that it is going to be very interesting. But he would not name names or say what unusual things were going on at the time of Karen Swift's death.
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 was at home who did she talk to, if she had gone out for the night, a night of dancing and drinking like at the The Farms Dyersburg Country Club Halloween party then who was she with. It surely was not her husband who was back at their home on crutches with a knee injury, so who was she with, did she get into any altercations with anyone inside or outside of the Farms Dyersburg Country Club Halloween party, where are the surveillance tapes?
Look at whoever broke into The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg in the early AM on Tuesday November 1st 2011 as linked to the murder of Karen Swift. Someone broke into The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg Tennessee and stole some golf clubs, the video recording equipment, surveillance tapes and some of the surveillance cameras, who has the Alarm Contract with the The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg Tennessee. The break-in was reported to the Dyersburg County Sheriff on Wednesday November 2nd, 2011, three days after Karen Swift was murdered. Information from my sources indicates there was a break in at The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg Tennessee on Tuesday November 1st, 2011 and the burglars stole the surveillance cameras, tapes, discs, all the recording devices and a few golf clubs, the purpose of the break in at the The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg Tennessee was to steal the surveillance equipment, what the hell?
Karen Swift Unsolved Murder and Secret Credit Cards in Dyersburg TN Baffles Everyone, Except Me. The Case So Far: By September 2011 in Dyer County Court, lawsuits were being filed by 4 different bank credit card companies issued in the name of Karen S. Swift (her name only) for a total of $7,200, all 4 credit cards had been charged off by the banks. Early A.M. Sunday October 30th, 2011, a pair of jeans and a grey zip-up top were found by the side of the road close to where Karen Swift's car was found abandoned a quarter of a mile from her home in Dyersburg, TN, her 'cat woman' costume was found in the car, was she sexually assaulted, what DNA was found, why were her clothes found all over the place by her abandoned SUV, why was her nude body found 42 days later in December, in the weeds next to a Cemetery in an area that had been previously searched? Was this a sex crime, rape? Was this a crime of passion or revenge? Who carried her nude body to the graveyard?
UPDATE NOVEMBER 2ND, 2018 News 3 writes: DYERSBURG, Tenn. — Seven years after she disappeared, a Mid-South mother's cause of death has finally been released. A autopsy report obtained by internet reporter Burton Staggs said Karen Swift, a mother of four and fitness instructor, was killed by blunt force trauma to the head in October 2011. The report obtained by Burton Staggs noted that Swift was partially clothed and had multiple bone fractures. The report also stated Karen Swift was found in vines near Bledsoe Cemetery wearing nothing but underwear that were pulled halfway down her thighs. Swift's body was too decomposed to determine if she was sexually assaulted. A pair of jeans and a grey zip-up top were found by the side of the road close to where Mrs Johnson Swift's car was abandoned, a quarter of a mile from her home in Dyersburg, Tennessee. 'Sounds like Karen Swift was beaten to death with a baseball bat or a golf club and more than likely she was raped'. Karen Swift sure as hell was not killed in the Swift home, there would have been blood everywhere, ceiling to floor, multiple search warrants by cops found nothing. Local 24’s Tish Clark left a message for the medical examiner to find out why sealed autopsy results were sent to a journalist. The autopsy results were obtained by Burton Staggs, a journalist at the Tennessee River Valley News, which is a digital news organization in Wayne County.
A friend of the missing woman, Laura Jane, told The Huffington Post: 'They found her Halloween costume in the car, the one she wore to the Dyer County Country Club (The Farm) on Saturday October 29th. They confirmed [the clothing items] belong to her. They took DNA from her mother and compared it to DNA on the clothes.''Some other articles of clothing that belonged to her - a pair of jeans and a gray zip-up - were found in some brush not far from her car. Late on Tuesday November 1st 2011, someone broke into The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg Tennessee and stole some golf clubs, the video recording equipment, surveillance tapes and some of the surveillance cameras, who has the Alarm Contract with the The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg TennesseeThe break-in was reported to the Dyersburg Co. Sheriff on Wednesday November 2nd, 2011, three days after Karen Swift was murdered. 
On December 10th 2011 the body of Karen Swift was found. Swift's body was in an area covered in vines near Bledsoe Cemetery. The body was found on Saturday after the once-green vegetation that had concealed it had thinned due to the cold weather. The place where the body was recovered is about three miles from where Swift's abandoned car, a white 2004 Nissan Murano, was found with a flat tire.
No crime scene appears to have been determined as to where Karen Swift was murdered on or about October 30th, 2011. The murder of Karen Swift apparently occurred in the Dyersburg family home or so claims the Sheriff but he can not prove it. Dyer County District Attorney Phil Bivens was 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 TN processed potential evidence at the residence. Forensic agents were reportedly at the house because it was one of the last places Karen Swift was seen alive and a part of the process of the investigation, the forensic agents found nothing, no blood, no indication that a fight or a murder took place in the house, nothing.
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. Dyer County TN investigators "observed injuries" the body of Karen Swift sustained that appeared to have caused her death, obvious such injuries that "one could observe" would be gunshot wounds, stab wounds, and/or injuries to the body beaten with a weapon, or even run over with a car, all of which would cause blood spatter at the crime scene. So, if the cause of death for Karen Swift was injuries to her body, where is the blood spatter in the house or on or near her car, none was supposedly found by TBI forensic agents. If blood spatter belonging to Karen Swift was found in the house or on or near her car, the husband, David Swift, would be on trial right now, he isn't because he is innocent.
Agents with the TBI’s Violent Crimes Response Team in Memphis TN processed potential evidence at the residence. Forensic agents were reportedly at the house because it was one of the last places Karen Swift was seen alive and a part of the process of the investigation, the forensic agents found nothing, no blood, no indication that a fight or a murder took place in the house. 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, no blood spatter etc, so where was the crime scene, where was Karen Swift murdered?  
Where is the Karen Swift crime scene? It does not appear to be at the Swift home in Dyersburg, multiple search warrants have proved fruitless, no blood spatter. It was not where her car was found, no blood spatter again, no drag marks on the dirt near the car, nothing. It also does not appear from Dyer County 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? David Swift could not have carried the body of Karen anywhere, he was on crutches due to recent knee surgery. Karen Swift was not on the Mortgage or Title to the house she shared with her husband, she was driving a 2004 Nissan white Murano SE 2WD that she did not own, it was owned and registered to her husband. She ran up 4 secret credit cards in her name to $7,200, she did not pay them, and the  credit card companies sued Karen Swift by September 2011, what did she buy or pay for with these 4 secret credit cards? This is basic P.I. 101, secret credit cards with high unpaid balance, secret burner cell phone from a 'friend', she was away from the home a lot, it sure appears that Karen had a boyfriend or two.
Karen Swift had very few household bills to pay, if any, and yet she was heavily in debt on at least 4 bank credit cards issued in HER NAME ONLY, in fact all 4 bank credit cards were maxed out and had been charged off and Karen Swift was being sued by all 4 of the credit card companies for a total of $7,200 by September 2011 in Dyer County Court. Karen Swift had as many as 3 cell phones at a time, two were on her husbands account, not hers, one was pre-paid and untraceable given to her to keep in touch with her ‘new friends’, someone that she met on the internet. One of the other last places Karen Swift would have known to be alive or dead, would have been in the car she had been driving, the Sheriff released her car to the bank that owned it in June 2014. I would 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. 
Karen Swift had as many as 3 cell phones at a time, two were on her husbands account, not hers, one was pre-paid and untraceable given to her to keep in touch with her ‘new friends’, some that she met on the internet. Karen Swift was working as an Aerobic Instructor at the Y in Dyersburg, Karen Swift had begun teaching an aerobics class called Silver Sneakers which is a fitness program for older adults. Karen Swift also had a house cleaning and yard cleaning business, in fact on the morning she went missing she was headed to a house cleaning job to finish up so that she could collect $250.00, she was not paying any of the credit card bills in her name, the car payment, the phones, the mortgage, food, gas all paid for by her husband, I have the evidence.
Karen Swift spent hundreds of dollars on expensive cameras and digital video recording devices, for what use? Karen Swift was living the party life, just like the night she went to the The Farms Golf Club & Country Club Halloween Party as ‘Catwoman’ in a skintight black costume without her husband on Saturday October 29th, 2011 and stays until about 11:58 pm, early next morning Sunday October 30th, 2011 at about 5:00 am she is up and out of the Swift home and on the road to go to work, she ‘goes missing’ at 5:30 am and turns up dead, her body found dumped in the weeds near the access road to Bledsoe Cemetery and not 'found' until December 10th, 2011. Karen Swift may have just come between a Dyersburg married man and his wealthy family with a confrontation boiling over in the parking lot of The Farms Golf Club & Country Club in Dyersburg TN on Saturday October 29th unfortunately there are no security tapes to look at, who knows what happened, maybe we never will.
