I kind of find it hard to believe that David would move his family to Dyersburg to commit murder. But on the other hand before I move or purchase a house anywhere, I would check out the crime rate of the city or county. Also I would check to see if the city had an excellent school system. I think this would be one of the first things a person would do before buying a home.

Isn't that always the catch. You can't put it behind you until you deal with it. It has been my experience that this applies to almost every mistake we make in life. Can't go around it...gotta go through it.


I'm no Bible or religious scholar, by any means. But I also disagree with JSYWK (imagine that)lol ..Yes, God does forgive..but I believe in under to recieve God's forgiveness..we must own up to our sins. Which, IMO, in this case would include confessing and taking man's punishment... How can we live in God's light and hold something so dark and never take responsibility?

You wish it will never be solved. Too bad your genie fell out of the bottle years ago.

I think you may be off on your date. I think they had only lived there around 4 years when this occurred. I could be off a little, but I don't think I'm off that much.
2004 may have been right. Do you think he moved his family here, because of his home based business might have been better?

What does it matter who cheated on who? Why do children keep getting bought into this? We should focus our discussion on a woman that was brutally murdered. Karen's family and her true friends wants answers.
The top 5 reasons to murder
#5: Alcohol and drugs

In last place: is just being plain high. Picture the scene: you've been down the pub and had one or two dozen pints. You stumble home, to find your wife hasn't even left you any dinner out, let alone put the washing on. I mean, what were you supposed to do? Be warned however: the only kind of hangover worse than waking up in the morning next to a pig, is waking up next to a dead pig.

#4: Revenge

By far my favourite category. You've got to wonder if this should even really be classed as a crime. Certainly "he had it coming" should be a perfectly acceptable defence. People in this category probably figured they'd get away with it. I mean, if they had any faith in the legal system, they wouldn't be taking matters into their own hands in the first place.

#3: Money

In at three, is cold hard cash. One scenario might be that the job centre was way on the other side of town, where as your elderly rich relative lived just around the corner. And lets face it his best years were behind him anyway. Or perhaps you'd spent too much time planning how to get into the bank and not enough time planning how you'd get out afterwards. Which is really probably the trickier part.

You might be one of those people that think that this is the most despicable reason to do away with another human being. But consider this: how much would I really have to pay you to kill Paris Hilton?

#2: No apparent motive

Or as I like to think of it, "lazy police work". This category might not have made it to second place if the law enforcement agencies were a little more determined on finding out the truth. And by finding the truth, I don't just mean 'lets plant a glove and hope it fits'. Of course it could be that there really is no motive. In which case we could just blame video games or something.

#1: The domestic argument

My source indicated that "domestic includes jealousy, desertion/termination of relationship, and other domestic altercation.". It seems our favourite excuse to bump someone off is the ol' crime of passion. I guess it just goes to show that you *can* love someone too much. Or not enough. Until scientists determine the exact amount you're supposed to love someone, we're all just going to have to watch our backs.

A Definition of Namu-myoho-renge-kyo


Namu or Nam (an abbreviation of Namu that some Buddhists use) means devotion or direction. At any given moment, you are directing your life a certain way. For example, at work your mind may be consumed by the details of your job. At that moment, your life is directed toward your work. You are thinking about work and taking action on those thoughts. In Buddhism, the more you focus your life on the the Law of Life itself the happier you will become. The way to focus your life on the Law of life is to chant Namu- myoho-renge-kyo.

In the words of Nichiren ,“What then does myo signify? It is simply the mysterious nature of our life from moment to moment, which the mind cannot comprehend or words express. When we look into our own mind at any moment, we perceive neither color nor form to verify that it exists. Yet we still cannot say that it does not exist, for many differing thoughts continually occur. The mind cannot be considered either to exist or not to exist. Life is indeed an elusive reality that transcends both the words and concepts of existence and nonexistence, yet exhibits the qualities of both. It is the mystic entity of the Middle Way that is the ultimate reality. Myo is the name given to the mystic nature of life, and ho, to its manifestations.”(4)

Renge literally means lotus flower, which symbolizes the wonder of this Law.(4) The lotus flower was chosen to symbolize cause and effect. Its flowers and seeds are evident at the same time which further illustrates the simultaneity of cause and effect. This is an important concept of Buddhism and one that is at once simple, yet extremely profound. The very concept itself negates predestination and gives full control for one’s destiny back to its originator — the one who caused your destiny in the first place — you. With a profound understanding of cause and effect, you can recognize the causes for enlightenment and the causes for suffering.

Kyo means teaching or sutra. It is the instruction shared between one Buddha and another. It is the path of development of your own Buddhahood and the Buddhahood of all others. This may be one of the most difficult concepts to accept. It is not the teacher, but the teachings that are the key. To mistake the teacher as the source of the realization of Buddhahood is to misplace the source of true and universal enlightenment. We do not worship the person, the Buddha. We revere the correct teachings or Law of Buddhism. These teachings are the Lotus Sutra, and they form the path to enlightenment for all people universally. Again, from the words of Nichiren,“If one understands that one’s life is myo, then one also understands that others’ lives are all entities of the Mystic Law. This realization is the mystic kyo, or sutra.”(4-5) The teachings of kyo are the source, the means, the entrance, and the door for all people to open the enlightened condition of Buddhahood within their own lives. It is a teaching which does not separate the spiritual world from the phenomenal world in which we live. It states that the very sounds of our voices are inextricably linked to the spirituality within us. Our lives are full and complete here, right now. Our lives are not separated by time or space from our spiritual selves.

Hmmmm? Strange!

Thank You ,Queue. I hope that someday I will be as smart as you,but I doubt it. Did you ever consider PRAYING for everyone involved here or do you just want the last word? If you put as much effort in saying nice things to people as you do trying to start a fight,the thread could go on,but people like you will be the demise of this thread.Have a good day.

I knew absolutely NOTHING about Karen until I saw on the news where she disappeared. Think whatever you want to think, you have some really weird ideas. How would I post from April 2011 about something that had not happened? You seem to be the one that thinks they are psychic, not me. And NOOOOOOO, I do NOT know what you are talking about. I know NOTHING about anything that happened to ANYONE that I did not know in April 2011. So stuff it. You are way off course.
Were there "goods" in April 2012 as well? Why don't you fill all of us in on that part.
You have not and will never convince me that you did not know Karen. Yes, you know exactly what I am talking about. Your denial is not convincing.

No, never divorced. The closest I came to something like that was living with a girl for a couple years then going our separate ways. No children or pets to argue over.
I think that gave me some practical experience to not make the same mistakes again.

People don't leave the house in the freezing weather at 2 am in pajamas to pay a debt. Or meet a boyfriend who doesn't exist. Or at the request of a weird dark stranger and pale faced friend.

Can't remember the rest of the silliness in this thread.

If indeed David killed his wife in their home would the two youngest girls have slept through it? Do we know if Karen was found in her pajamas? Do we even know the time Karen left her home and how she left her in the middle of the night? How could there be no evidence to make an arrest of the husband if Karen was killed in her home?

Dawg I would love to hear your opinion.

There will be no mea culpa from jsywk...Whoever she is, she will stay unknown to us. Whatever anyones motive for being here, just like the killer, you face up to your in this world or the next, there is no free ride. I used to tell my kids, pretend that Grandma is there and can see how you are acting, would you be proud of that person? Some posters would do well to keep that in mind.

My thoughts have always been that the death happened in the home or garage. The evidence would then show that she was dumped in the kudzu nude. Her night clothes were ripped off because as noted by several on this thread, if she had been dumped in her night clothes, then it would be obvious where she was last alive.
When the car was staged along side the road, her jeans and pull over sweater were tossed in the bushes nearby. The perp couldn't/wouldn't dress the lifeless body himself, but just as with the car, the clothes had to be staged somewhere. The clothes were tossed with the intent that they be found because it had to look like she was fully clothed up to some point.
Having dealt with my father-in-law for several years while he declined in a nursing home, I know how difficult it is for one person to dress someone who is limp as a rag. If you have no training it becomes even more difficult for one person to do it. The perp made no effort but knew he had to do something.
All of this shows a level of premeditation. A high level of premeditation.
Earlier, I was joking about the crime statistics and that the Swift's moved to that particular town/county because it would be a good place to stage a murder. Although I was joking, it's not out of the realm of possibilities.

I am so sorry kbell, I had no idea you lost a brother to murder. How horrid. I hope they caught the person responsible, and that they are serving life or death.
Thank you RIT. He was only 25 at the time.His wife decided if she couldn't have him, neither would any one else. Thirty years is not enough time, believe me 100 years would not be enough. Losing someone you love to murder leaves a void in your heart and your family that can never be filled. I have such a hard time with people bashing Karen, I not understand why they feel the need to blame the victim. Their families are suffering enough already.
