    Bumping Karen, I pray this new year brings some answers and some punishments to whomever decided to take her life and forever scar her children and other family members for the rest of their lives.
    You are so right about this. Holly Bobo and others come to mind. I think LE: 1) are not prepared for these cases, 2) do not care about the victims, 3) do not have a high regard for women. MOO

    This is beyond ridiculous...over a year since Karen's body was found! There is a body and, according to Sheriff Box, there is alot of factual evidence! Furthermore, Sheriff Box stated, some time ago, that investigators had narrowed down the search to ONE person and an arrest would be forthcoming(paraphrased)!

    So what gives??? Actions speak Louder than words! Is someone afraid of the "Big Bad Attorneys"...noone should be...they put their pants on the same way as everyone else!

    Let's get Justice for Karen Swift's children!!! You would if your children were the innocent victims of the loss of their mother at the hands of a cold blooded murderer! Yes?

    Today would have been Karen's birthday. It's ironic that, really, the best present to celebrate and remember her birth is for charges to be brought against whoever is responsible for her death.

    Rest in peace, Karen... And bless those children as they go through another special day without you.

    My guess is that the one person under suspicion is the husband, but that there just isn't enough evidence to bring charges. We've seen many cases like that before, where it takes years to build a case. If there was DNA evidence under Karen's nails and it belonged to her husband, he would simply argue that they lived together ... so it means nothing.

    I agree, but the LE spokesperson made some foolish statements, if so. He spoke of an imminent arrest, etc. many, many months ago. I know we often complain at not hearing enough from LE, but it makes little sense to come out as he did either. Wonder if it was political.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I'm wondering if there isn't some division among LE on this case? Just a thought - I haven't seen anything to that effect but thought that could be the reason for no charges.

    I'm wondering it there was truth to the statement, but the DNA results changed everything. I seem to recall that there was DNA evidence, which would suggest that it was only a matter of time before there was an arrest ... a short time. The only thing that I can think of that would neutralize the DNA evidence is if it pointed towards the husband, because he would have many excuses for why his DNA was on her clothes, perhaps under her nails, at her crime scene and anywhere near her.

    I wonder that as well. But if no other DNA was found on her, then would it be possible for someone to have murdered her without leaving their DNA anywhere on her? The case would be circumstantial at best, I guess, but better than no case at all, IMO.

    In other words, if someone else did it, then where is *their* DNA, *their* evidence?

    Yes, I agree. Sadly sometimes there just isn't enough evidence. IMO, the party on the night she was killed is the game changer in this case. The party and question about her going out after coming home from it throws a monkey wrench into things........

    Without the party, this case would be very much like the Stephanie Roller Bruner case I previously mentioned (link to it

    http://video.msnbc.msn.com/dateline/49309996#49309996

    in which Stephanie's husband really couldn't explain her going out in late at night, in the cold for a walk in a remote area. Their daughter was also old enough to provide LE with info that husband and wife had been fighting prior to her going out, contrary to husband saying they hadn't IIRC.

    Was it ever released by LE if she was sexually assaulted? I have followed as faithfully as others, but I don't recall it being said. I'm guessing not.

    I too thought this would have a quick resolution and add a plus on the positive side of TN LE. I was being pretty negative on them, and then the arrest in Dana Wilkes case revived it a bit.

    IIRC there was no mention of her being sexually attacked, and nothing about anything else about her autopsy report, etc.

    That would be an interesting twist.
    Image a case in which a gal goes out, has consensual sex with someone unknown, comes home to an enraged husband who kills her and hides her body...

    when she found, LE believes the husband did it, but forensics finds the DNA of the unknown person on her - unless LE can find the unknown person, how can the husband ever be tried?
