    A 49 year old man whose 83 year old lover was found dead in his basement in Harrisburg, PA, has spoken out. He wants his name cleared.

    David Barksdale speculated that the reason he, and other tenants he says live in the house he shared with Peggy Swann, did not smell the body was because she was wrapped in a blanket.

    According to the article, Barksdale posted a FB msg June 9th, stating Peggy was missing, although now he says he doesn't remember doing so. He found her body June 26th.

    'Harrisburg Police .....have said they are treating the case as a homicide until evidence proves otherwise. No suspects have been named; no charges have been filed.'

    'On Tuesday, abc27 reported on court documents that revealed Dauphin County Area Agency on Aging were conducting an investigation into alleged sexual abuse against Swann two weeks prior. Per abc27 policy, the man named in those documents was not identified'

    I don't know if it's the worry over Peggy being missing - but Barksdale looks thin to the point of being emaciated to me.
