ZEIGLER: More importantly, we don`t know. Was there a big life insurance policy here? You know, another question, you know, that`s been raised.

And the last thing is, I think Mr. Swift lawyered up 24 or 48 hours after his wife went missing. That strikes me as a little odd, especially if you love your wife, even though she wants a divorce, and you`re trying to make it work.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, I don`t know. Listen, if I were in his situation, I would get a lawyer immediately. Because we all know that police look at the immediate intimate partner first because of the statistics regarding intimate partner violence and statistically what happens. And I would have done it immediately too...

And neither of them lived in the home when Karen went missing.
So does that mean you are calling this family a liar?? The son that said it??

Repeating a story does not make it factual.
So, does that mean we throw all of the articles and facts out the window again??

But I thought that was the family attorney hired to handle the divorce. Have I been misled?

Both. The divorce and to protect himself from what I was told and read.

Straight out to my exclusive guest, the missing woman`s son, Preston Swift.

Preston, I want to thank you for joining us. I know that you are doing everything in your power to find your mother, and I know this is extraordinarily difficult for you. Our hearts go out to you and everyone in your family. Your two kid sisters who are going through a lot. How are you and your two kid sisters holding up?

SWIFT: We`re doing pretty good. We`re doing everything we can to be together right now. They`re actually doing well. My father and I have been doing everything we can to help them deal with the situation and also to help us deal with the situation. We`ve had them in therapy. We`ve also been to some therapy. But we`re doing everything that we can to help us in this situation right now.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: What about this Google search, at 5 in the morning? That seems very suspicious, very odd to me. What do you know? What was searched? Do you have any idea?

SWIFT: We really don`t have any idea. I know that they pinged her phone at 5 a.m. in the morning, and it was about 12 miles off from the house. They`re not really telling us a lot about the Google search. In fact, I`ve never even had it confirmed yet that it was a Google search. But we`re still talking to the sheriff every day, seeing what we can find out, if there is any new information.

VELEZ-MITCHELL: Well, let`s look at some possibilities here, or some aspects of this case. Just a month before your mom disappeared, a man was arrested for poisoning dogs, allegedly, including Karen`s dog, your family dog. That man, John Hogshooter, is out of jail on bond. Cops say he is not a suspect in your mother`s disappearance. But did she confront him at all? Did -- did -- why on earth was he poisoning dogs? What a horrible thing.

Sorry....but sometimes I don't believe you could back up a car. I respect your opinion that you don't believe her husband did this. But you have not said anything to support why you FACTUALLY state a woman did this. Jealousy over "getting jobs" isn't flyin' with me. That may be your motive but you haven't stated your evidence....even if circumstantial.

It's not called "facts" that you are giving. Nor do any of what you posted back up any reason for it being a woman.

SWIFT: My dad called me concerned. Immediately, he called me back later and told me that they have reported her missing. I never saw any violence. They both cared about each other, and they did, you know, care about us.
According to statements, David awoke at 6 or so to find Karen gone. Sometime after that smeone told him about the car and he called P to try and contact Karen. David was worried enough to involve his son but not worried enough to even check out the car, which was down the street? It makes no sense to me that D thought something wrong enough to call Preston and worry him but not enough to call the police. Those first few hours seem to be a total contradiction....it feels like alibi building...i was so worried, tried to call her (but she never answers for me) and even had P try but she wouldnt answer. Just one of the many things David did initially that just dont feel right.

I agree RiT. Those first 8 hours of virtually nothing speaks volumes. The idea that the vehicle was so close to home with a flat tire but Karen isn't anywhere around reeks of foul play immediately. Even after P attempting to make contact, no call to the sheriff.
Although it's never been verified, ds' actions those first 8 hours of the day indicates that the "shacking up" statement WAS made.
Just think, if Karen's remains had not been found, where would we be today with this case? There would still be a voice that would be claiming she ran off. Who could prove otherwise? Once remains were found, that jig was up and a murder case was born.

Good morning, my friend. Hope this Good Friday finds you well. Going to be a beautiful weekend here, hope yours will be too.

I have always had a problem with the timing of the call to Preston. I can't imagine myself worrying my children when i believed my estranged spouse was out with someone. His every action, as we know them, is a contradiction.
You are right, if Karen hadn't been found i believe D would have continued to tell his kids that she left. Insult to injury.

The way the case started out, Box knew there was foul play involved but didn't want to force ds into a corner right away. The investigators played along just to see what and how much he would say. They knew as soon as they became accusatory, perps shut down and hire lawyers. That happened in the first 24-36 hours of Karen being reported missing. He was the suspected perp from day one and nothing has changed since.
Most of the snow is melted here, and should be in the mid-fifties today. I knew it was Friday, but slipped my mind that it was Good Friday. Time to get my ham recipe handy! I got another smoked Amish ham and will slow cook it in the oven starting about 3 am Sunday morning. The one for New Years was so good I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do another.

(END VIDEO CLIP)
This statement proves that she was going somewhere. This is my back up to think that a woman did it. This is a part that has changed my mind about David doing this.

Where is the link or proof that he didn't go down and check the car early that morning??

I know my cousin very well, and if he could have backed the killer into a corner right then, then he would have made an arrest in seconds. Sounds like to me that David was concerned after he awoke at 6.
