The 4th of July fireworks that I witnessed Friday nite, do not compare to those in the 2014 election campaign for Dyer Co., TN Sheriff. Seems, long term incumbent Sheriff Jeff Box; normally, a shoe in for re-election is being haunted by the 2011 unsolved/cold case of the horrific Karen Swift abduction/murder. A websleuths poster's hubby once compared her case to a very dark southern gothic novel...I agree..

RARE Lunar Eclipse, on Dec 10/ 2011, the day before Karen Swift's remains were located
(Pic of lunar eclipse on page 15- comment 365 -'Scroll on down for a photo of the Historic Bledsoe cemetery, etc')
http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.p...

Combined with the 1800s Bledsoe historical cemetery, possible staging/placement of her body in kudzu(church deacon spotted her hand reaching out for revelation), near three huge historic religious iron crosses, and Karen Swift vanished after attending a party on Halloween weekend, sometime during the dead of night...

As someone stated on another forum, this is beginning to sound like a tragic fictional Southern Gothic Novel, yet may actually be a tragically dark reality..

Depends on how you define "unsolved". Fine line between "unsolved" and "wanting to guarantee a conviction". Something that a "sociopath" thinks they can bank on with the careful calculating of a crime in the thought process. How many times have we seen/heard even the guilty say/falsely believe "there's no evidence against me", and that no successful conviction will be made because they believe they are smarter than forensics or a jury of the peers, etc. That's also where a touch of narcissism comes in. I picture Drew Peterson, for an example, in that description.

How are these 2 cases "very similar"? The "profile" and "characteristics" so far are completely different in my opinion. ie: staging of car, clothing, body found/not found, etc. You may be confusing "sociopath" with "psychopath" within your comparison.....some use those terms interchangeably in error; where the characteristics and red flags can seem similar but are different when evaluated to another level. I venture to have the opinion that Holly's case was/is in relation to more of sociopaths being involved (more likely to not be stable within work, the law, impulsive, etc.) where Karen's appears to be more of a psychopath's doings - much more manipulative, calculating, someone that can live in society as a "nice person", follow (most) rules of living and society or at least appear to.
Quevue, don't give me your psycho babble.. A sociopath is simply the politically correct term for psychopath. This is analogous to labeling the Ft Hood shooting; workplace violence, instead of an obvious terrorist act, imo. Don't know if you noticed but I prefer calling a spade, a spade..

Quevue, Meth use creates psychopathic personalities.. I've been researching this for over six years, even going so far as emailing Pope John Paul II, asking him why he sent out a memo/order for all dioceses to train more Priests in the art of exorcism. Received an email back from the CIA/State Dept stating that,'you can't directly contact the leader of a Sovereign Nation'! The W.H.O had requested the Pope issue the order due to the increase in mass killings across the world..

Quevue, I prepared a behavior profile of the unknown subject/s in the Holly Bobo abduction/torture/rape/murder from observations from 04/13/2011. Trust me I know psychopaths..

Queve, read Bringing Adam Home, and you will see why there is 198,000+ cold case homicide cases in the USA.. In virtually every homicide case that I have researched, the ball was dropped by investigators. This is primarily due to the antiquated silence investigative strategy utilized by many LEAs, including the TBI & DCSO, etc... Their most valuable investigative resource is squandered; The American Public...

LOL! Obviously you, yourself has some "issues" since you resort to a form a narcissistic response and losing control so easily attempting to attack when I nor anyone else did so when responding to you. Trust me.....6 years of "studying" such is zilch/nothing/zero. You apparently didn't do your homework in 101. FYI - I spent 22 years "preparing" profiles and not just for a hobby as your's seems to be. Move along now.

LOL again. A barrel of laughs from the peanut gallery today. I like the comment, "Seems, long term incumbent Sheriff Jeff Box; normally, a shoe in for re-election is being haunted by the 2011 unsolved/cold case of the horrific Karen Swift abduction/murder." I know not many would catch this, but Jeff Box was elected in 2010. He can't be considered a long term incumbent or a shoe in for re-election. Jeff Holt was the previous Sheriff.
Some people get off on acting like a know-it-all and most likely are being monitored by Homeland Security folks.

The Sheriff stated that he and his investigators have not been able to clear the husband. He also goes on to say that the investigation points towards one person and that information has been passed on to the prosecutor.

Dawggggggggggg Box can't say I don't have a clue who DONE IT (((so BOX))) I will say I can't rule ONE person out, after all it's election time.

Now, JMO, I don't think the DA thinks the evidence points to DS.

The one that is hurting Box in this election, JMO, it appears the Box's camp don't have the DA backing them up.....Power struggle???? JMO

Let's see, just why can't Box say he doesn't have a clue who killed Karen? Most obviously, it's because he and his investigators do have more than one clue. They know pretty much know who, why, where and how by now. Proving that is the DA's job, not the sheriff's or investigators'.
Somewhere, I read that the DA is asking the sheriff and investigators for more evidence. That doesn't mean the DA isn't supportive of the sheriff's office. It means he wants more evidence. What DA wouldn't when prosecuting someone who hired Farese as his defense attorney? All that really means is DS was able to buy the best defense, which also means that he bought the best prosecution, also. The DA will insist on having a slam dunk case, and personally, that's what I want, too.
From my perspective, Box has his re-election campaign in order. His opponent, being admitted to the hospital for exhaustion and dehydration can't seem to handle the rigors of campaigning. What makes anyone think he can handle the rigors of being sheriff? Box will win by a landslide.

They know who killed her. David did it. She filed for divorce on October 10th and she was murdered on the 30th. Their home, alimony, child support and child custody was on the line and David knew he would have to pay up. He made a lot of money across the river and had just gotten his bonus. He was the last one to see her alive. David is the only one with time motive and opportunity. There were others in the house that night. The little one saw it all. As the lone surviving parent law enforcement needs Davids consent to interview the only other person that was in the house that night and knows what happened. David refused to let law enforcement interview her and ran out and hire Steven Farese (who is the lawyer who got Mary Winkler off for cold blooded murder). I wonder what David is hiding. Why wont he let law enforcement talk to the little one.

He will not be the prosecutor, that's for sure. Go to his website. He describes himself as a defense attorney. And it's not the attorney he was using for his divorce.

As a "spokesperson" that just sounds like he's defending someone maybe?

The husband of murdered Mid-South mother Karen Swift has hired a high profile attorney the same day investigators reveal they are closer to an arrest. The investigation into the murder of Karen Swift has not resulted in any arrests. But her husband's attorney said there could be more than one suspect.

"I don't want to speak badly about Karen," said attorney Steve Farese. "But were some things going on that were quite unusual."

Prominent attorney Steve Farese is talking about Karen Swift, the Dyer County mother who was murdered five months ago. Farese is representing Swift's husband David who has not been charged with anything. Farese thinks little of talk David Swift could be his wife's killer.

"A lot of people say that. Those people are ignorant and don't know what they are talking about," he said.

Farese says his investigation has uncovered some suspects. He says he has names of more than one person and that it is going to be very interesting. But he would not name names or say what unusual things were going on at the time of Karen Swift's death.
