Chief Investigator Terry McCreight stated on Monday the medical examiner's office in Memphis had not sent their findings and noted it may take awhile before they complete it. He added the detailed process is time consuming and coroners were doing what they could to finish the report.
"They are working in a timely manner," said McCreight.
Swift's body was sent to the medical examiner's office on Saturday, Dec. 10, after it was discovered by a passerby near Bledsoe Cemetery, which is off of Harness Road. Her identity was confirmed the next day using Swift's dental records. Sheriff Box stated on Monday, Dec. 12, his department was pursuing the case as a murder investigation due to the placement of Swift's body and apparent injuries to it.
Swift, a 44-year-old mother of four, was last seen in the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct. 30, by her husband at their home on Willie Johnson Road after she reportedly returned from a Halloween party. Her white 2004 Nissan Murano was later found on that day on Millsfield Highway near the entrance to Harness Road with a flat tire.
The Dyer County Sheriff's Department is still asking anyone who had contact with Swift before her disappearance, recalls seeing anyone near her vehicle on Millsfield Highway on Oct. 30, or has any other information about the case to contact the Dyer County Sheriff's Office at 731-285-2802 or 1-800-TBI-FIND.
