    I have not caught up yet but just want to say I am so sorry for her family with these new details which just have to bring more trauma to deal with as it all evolves.

    It sounds as if no OD or accident defense is going to work here, thank God for that, but these details and what likely happened to her is not what anyone wants to hear.

    It looks as if we have another sick and twisted evil perpetrator (and another young one)...

    This "man" had no right to do whatever it was he did to her and WTH makes someone think they have any such right over another?! If there is any bright side at all, it is that he will likely never be free to do it to anyone else. One would hope...

    I had better stop there...

    RIP Savannah. Justice shall come... Thinking of and praying for her family and children.

    Jmo.

    We haven’t heard specifics, but the arrest warrant referred to items “last known to be in the control” of SS and Sparks. That sounds like her purse and clothes? I wondered why they phrased it that way, but perhaps because they believe the other two when they said they left, and she was at the house alone with Sparks?

    "Police searched the countryside surrounding the home for weeks but were unable to find any evidence. K9 units and searches on foot and boat combed the rivers and ponds across an area stretching close to 70 miles with that house as its epicenter.

    During the search, a scrap of material the same color as the skirt Savannah was wearing the night she disappeared was found. It was discovered in an area not far from the rural home and near one of many ponds in the stretch of countryside. It was sent off for forensic examination."


    According to the article is sounds like the scrap of material believed to be her red skirt was actually recovered near one of the ponds during one of the early searches.

    So maybe the earlier rumor about finding evidence of her clothing was actually true and was only later disputed by searchers bc LE was not happy that it had been leaked?

    I saw one article that said that they identified her by her tattoos and fingerprints, and I was shocked that this would be a possibility until I looked up temperatures in Lexington...average temps...and it has only been the last two months that it has started warming up. Then add to that the other factors Ms Betsy mentioned. I think they also said it was a much colder January than normal.

    The scrap of material in the daily mail article is the only item I have seen named specifically so far. JMO

    Also of note it was the Daily mail that had claimed in an article when the searches were going on previously (months ago) near the church that a piece of clothing had been found FWIW

    As suspected, NOT an overdose. Not sure why it's always brought up as the most likely possibility in many of these cases involving young women, but it's very very rarely the case. Yes, the opioid epidemic is a very real thing and doesn't discriminate, but usually, we don't hear about those kind of cases because their families are well aware that their loved one is in active addiction and almost always, those bodies are not concealed in the way that victims of homicide are.

    RIP Savannah. Justice is coming.

    Good question if there is/was it would be even more damming IMO

    Although I suspect manner of death may end up being the thing that seals DS fate

    They have a lot of evidence it seems

    I believe I read earlier that firewood was on top on her. Most people will stack firewood next to a building like a shed or barn to keep it dry. It would keep animals from digging and also hold in odor to a degree. As the winter went back that wood pile would decrease and it might result in the site being exposed.

    This guy is toast.

    Looks like he used his rug to bury her then after bought a new one to replace the one he used. His garbage bags, Savannah’s blood in his closet. Yeah, he’s done.

    Hope we get COD and a murder charge soon (I assume that's what they are waiting on to add charges)

    I wouldn't think garbage bags would be that protective. I've put my garbage in four garbage bags and cats still get in the garbage at times. Also liquid leaks out of multiple garbage bags. I'm thinking she was moved from somewhere that was keeping her very cold. If she was there since Jan 4th, I see no way the odor would not have been detected. Also how do you search and even if lumber was on top of this grave, not find her and see the bags sticking out of the ground. Can't believe she was there when they searched or for over six months. It's impossible for me to believe this would be the case.

    Yah he's toast

    Witnesses placed him alone with SS

    Blood found in the bedroom of his rental home

    Missing rug from his bedroom found buried with the victim on his parents property

    The next day he calls his sister to find out where she bought the rug, he purchases the same exact rug almost immediately

    Same garbage bags and packaging tape that was found on SS body also found in DS home

    DS told investigators that SS was fine when he last saw her

    DS told investigators that SS left on foot

    The Autopsy will likely show how SS died, most likely blunt force trauma IMO

    Stamp Guilty on his forehead

    Was it confirmed Savannah rode with the other two men to DS house and he followed? If so he obviously wasn’t there for that FaceTime call telling her mother she would be home later that morning. Maybe that could’ve saved her life.. or maybe he still wouldn’t have cared :(

    Sister receives text asking where a rug was purchased the day after a person goes missing. Red Flag. Mr Sparks accounting of the events of the evening are unraveling. How a person can let a family suffer for 6 months is beyond me. It’s time he step forward and tell the truth.

    Awww, man, I feel for her family. That photo of her Dad leaving the courthouse with his picture on his lap of him and Savannah is heartbreaking. I cannot even begin to imagine. I didn’t truly think this would be accidental OD. I, obviously, have no way to know what the COD is yet. Maybe it’s because of my brutal rape that I always have this icy thin river of fear in my blood, causing me to suspect the most nefarious circumstances. PTSD has you hyperaware and a bit paranoid, or at least it does me. Bless that family, man. I hope whatever happened to Savannah was over quick and as painless as possible. Prayers to her family and friends. jmo
