Unsolved Murder of Karen Swift Found Near Bledsoe Cemetery in Dyersburg TN Mimics Memphis TN Serial Killer Who Left Bodies in Mount Carmel Cemetery

Memphis TN Serial Killer who left 3 nude female bodies, with panties pulled down, in Mount Carmel Cemetery in 2011, he was never caught. Time doesn’t heal all wounds. Sometimes it causes them to fester. This week will mark 13 years since my friend, Jessica Nicole Lewis, was murdered in South Memphis in 2011. Jessica Lewis was beautiful, her photo above on the left, blonde hair. She often flat-ironed her shoulder-length, strawberry-blonde curls, and she had style — her closet was full of body-hugging jeans and cute tops to adorn her near-hourglass, athletic figure. Thirteen years of unanswered questions. Thirteen years knowing the man who took her life was able to continue living his, freely and without consequence. On February 20, 2011, Jessica’s body was found in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, an old unkempt graveyard at Elvis Presley and Elliston, about three miles north of Graceland and as many miles south of the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. There was evidence of a struggle; she’d been dragged through the grounds and shot in the head, the only clothing left on her battered body was underwear (panties pulled down) and a single sock. The murder weapon, a gun, is probably in a river somewhere, or sitting on a shelf said Sgt. Robert Wilkie of the Memphis Police.
 
UPDATE; June 20, 2024 David Swift indicted by the Dyer County Grand Jury for voluntary manslaughter and aggravated assault against Karen Swift, David not guilty at trial of her murder, so what's up "General Danny" http://www.billwarnerpi.com/2024/06/nov-2015-david-swift-makes-1st-public.html

DYER COUNTY TN JUNE 2024: General Danny's end run around the current 8 year Statute of Limitations for Voluntary Manslaughter in TN by charging David Swift for the supposed crime in 2011 on Karen Swift, violates David Swift's 6th Amendment Right to a Speedy Trial for the same supposed crime. It looks like anything goes in Dyer County TN. US Constitution’s Sixth Amendment’s Right to Speedy Trial Clause: In 2011 in the State of Tennessee, the Statute of limitations on Voluntary Manslaughter was 4 years, David Swift left Tennessee in 2015. In 2016, the Tennessee Supreme Court specifically overruled its prior holding on ex post facto laws and held that “the ex post facto clause of the Tennessee Constitution has the same definition and scope as the federal ex post facto clause.” In other words, if a new Tennessee law were to extend a statute of limitation for a certain crime, it could now apply to both future crimes and also past crimes for which the statutes of limitation had not already expired. Past cases have considered how the US Constitution’s Due Process and Speedy Trial Clauses affect criminal statutes of limitations. Statutes of limitations apply to the time period before criminal proceedings are started while the right to a speedy trial applies to the length of time between the start of criminal proceedings and cases going to trial. The US Constitution’s Sixth Amendment’s Speedy Trial Clause provides that in all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial. On its face, the protection of the amendment is activated only when a criminal prosecution has begun and extends only to those persons who have been accused in the course of that prosecution.

In less than a month in early 2011, one man murdered three women and tried to kill a fourth in South Memphis. He fired a single round into each one of them, then left two of the bodies in Mt. Carmel Cemetery in South Memphis. The final victim, and the only one to survive, was shot just across the street from Mt. Carmel. He's never been caught. And as far as police know, he hasn't killed since. 'There's four that I believe ... are the work of the same (killer),' said Sgt. Robert Wilkie, the Memphis Police Department homicide detective assigned to the cases. 'Two of them are actually linked by forensic evidence. The other two, to make a total of four, because of the location and the types of injuries, motive more than anything.' His crime spree began on Jan. 27, 2011. 

Around 5:30 a.m. on Feb. 24, the groundskeeper at Mt. Carmel made another grisly discovery: The body of Rhonda Wells, 44, was found on one of the roads in the northwest corner of the cemetery. Then, on Feb. 26, two days after Wells was found, the killer struck again, across the street from Mt. Carmel. This time, though, he made a mistake. His victim lived, and she told police what he looked like. From her description, police were able to put together the composite sketch of a young black man, about 24 years old with his hair in cornrows. He was driving a dark Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300. Police also had evidence from the scenes. Memphis TN serial killer's dump site in 2011 was at the old Mt. Carmel Cemetery which looks a lot like the old Bledsoe Cemetery in Dyersburg TN where Karen Swift's body found in Oct 2011, just sayin.

Private investigator Bill Warner was back on CNN Headline News Jane Velez-Mitchell's show GONE on December 12th, 2011 talking about the unsolved murder of Karen Swift whose nude body was found on Dec 10th, 2011 in Dyersburg TN, with her panties pulled down. Karen Swift was beautiful, her photo above, she had shoulder length blonde hair. Karen Swift looks some what like murdered Jessica Nicole Lewis in Memhis TN in 2011, just sayin. CNN Jane Velez-Mitchell, "Bill Warner, you find it very significant that Karen`s body was found near a cemetery". There's a little dirt road off of Harness Road that leads up to the old Bledsoe Cemetery. 

There is a little dirt road that separates where Karen Swifts body was found in Dec 2011 and from where the headstones are in the old Bledsoe cemetery. It's within 30, 40 feet. The problem I have, is that I was aware earlier in the same year in -- from January through March 2011, that there was serial killer in the Memphis Tennessee area who killed three women and dumped their nude bodies (panties pulled down) in a cemetery in Memphis, Tennessee, the old Mount Carmel Cemetery. Jessica Nicole Lewis, was murdered in South Memphis in Feb 2011, her body dumped in the old Mt Carmel cemetery. Kinda looks like the Memphis serial killer has a signature to his murders. I find this a little disturbing, being that Memphis is only maybe a 1 1/2 hour drive from Dyersburg TN, and the Memphis TN serial killer was never caught!

Could the 24 year old Memphis TN rapist serial killer who left his nude female victims bodies in a cemetery have left Memphis TN and relocated to a possible family member in the Dyersburg TN area? They found Karen Swift's Halloween costume from the Farms Dyersburg Country Club party in her car on Sunday Oct 30th, 2011. Some articles of clothing that belonged to Karen Swift, a pair of jeans, a bra and a gray zip-up sweatshirt were found in some brush not far from her car. They confirmed [the clothing items] belong to her. They took DNA from her mother and compared it to DNA on the clothes," Swift's friend Laura Jane told The Huffington Post. When Karen Swift's body was found on Dec 10th, 2011 near the Bledsoe cemetery she was nude except for her panties pulled down below her knees. Who killed Karen Swift, was it the Memphis serial killer who left his victims in a cemetery or a clever copycat killer in 2011?
 
Memphis TN serial killer's dump site in Feb 2011 was the old Mt. Carmel Cemetery which coincidentally looks just like the old Bledsoe Cemetery in Dyersburg TN where Karen Swift's body was found in Dec 2011. Karen Swift looks some what like murdered Jessica Nicole Lewis, both very attractive white females with shoulder length blonde hair. Jessica Nicole Lewis was murdered in Memphis TN in Feb 2011. Both Karen Swift and Jessica Nicole Lewis bodies were found nude other than their panties pulled down below their knees.
 
UPDATE JUNE 16th, 2024: MEMPHIS TN SERIAL KILLER STILL OUT THERE HE HAS NEVER BEEN CAUGHT. The Memphis TN serial killer was described as a black male with cornrow hair, he was clean shaven in 2011 but would most likely have facial hair in 2024, he would be now 37 years old.
 
D.A. "General" Danny Goodman Jr of Dyer County will move forward at trial to convict David Swift of Voluntary Manslaughter on July 2nd, or so he says. David Swift was Not Guilty of 1st or 2nd Degree Murder and Not Guilty of Attempted Murder of Karen Swift at trial on June 6th. Tennessee Code § 39-13-211 defines voluntary manslaughter as the intentional or knowing killing of a person in a state of passion due to adequate provocation.
 
17-page autopsy revealed Karen Swift died from a hit to the right front side of her head causing a depressed fracture sending broken bones into her brain. Looks like a left hand perp hit her with a gun butt. A gun butt from a pistol whipping would definitely cause a depressed fracture in the head of Karen Swift. I think that of all the suspected murder weapons, like a hammer or gulf club or baseball bat that have been bantered around by web-sleuths, bloggers, pod-casters and wanna be cops the most obvious weapon that is prolific in the State of Tennessee is a handgun.

David Swift not guilty at trial June 6 2024, his D-Day, so who killed Karen Swift? Maybe David Swift DIDN'T kill Karen Johnson Swift - The Context Of Things. see https://thecontextofthings.com/2015/01/12/karen-johnson-swift-case/ via @tedbauer2003.

Prosecutor DA Goodman claims in his opening statement Tuesday, that David Swift on the morning of Oct 30th, 2011 went into the bedroom where his wife was sleeping in their home, stripped her down to her panties and then dragged her to their garage where David Swift put Karen Swift down on the concrete floor and stomped on Karen Swift's head with such force that he cracked her skull in two places, there would have been blood spatter everywhere. Medical examiner Dr. Marco Ross testified to a depressed skull fracture on the right side of her head, that he said killed Karen Swift in the David Swift murder trial, but said there was no way to determine the weapon. I suppose it could be from a hammer or a baseball bat or even from a possible pistol whipping as a weapon to cause a depressed skull fracture (bones forced into the brain). Dr. Marco Ross also testified there was no way to determine if she'd been sexually assaulted. An autopsy report provided to Court TV said Karen Swift died from “blunt force injury of the head”, depressed fracture to the temporal bone on the side of the head, the the hardest bone in the human body.  

DA Goodman claims David Swift stomped on the head of Karen Swift while she was lying on the concrete floor of their garage, there would have been blood everywhere. BUT wouldn't they have been damage to both sides of Karen Swift's head and not just on the right side? The medical examiner testified Thursday May 30 in the David Swift murder trial, providing graphic details from Karen Swift's autopsy. The medical examiner stated that Karen Swift had a depressed fracture to the right side of her head that was the basic cause of death. A depressed fracture to the head causes bone fragments forced into the brain, M.E. was unable to determine exactly what kind of weapon caused the head wound. Depressed fracture wounds were found on the right side of the head above the right eye of Karen Swift. The human skull can withstand 6.5 GPa of pressure while oak holds up under 11 GPa. Frontal bone: this bone comprises the forehead and the upper orbit of the eye. It joins the parietal bones at the coronal suture. Two temporal bones: These bones are located at the sides and base of the skull, and they are the hardest bones in the body. A supposed murder weapon that caused the wound would be a hammer or a baseball bat or even from a possible pistol whipping. The killer of Karen Swift would have been most likely left handed if he used a weapon as wounds were on the right side of her head, David Swift is right handed.
