DYER COUNTY, TN -

(WMC-TV) - Dyer County Sheriff's deputies searched the home of David Swift Wednesday for evidence in the murder of his wife Karen.

"I'm a little bit miffed that they would scare the children like they did with the show of force, but they can do what they want. They're the authorities," said David's attorney Steve Farese.

Farese said Swift and his two young daughters, and their friends, were at the house when the deputies showed up armed with a search warrant signed by a judge. This is the second time investigators have searched the house.

"It was certainly unusual, and it was unnecessary all they would have to do is call us. If they wanted to look inside the house. He has cooperated fully throughout the investigation," said Farese.

Karen Swift filed for divorce a few weeks before she vanished Halloween weekend 2011 from the home she shared with her husband and children. Investigators discovered her car with a slashed tire on the side of the road not far from her home. Her body was found more than a month after she disappeared near an old cemetery two miles from her home.

No arrests have been made in the case.

"It's just obvious that they were at a loggerhead and are looking for anything," said Farese.

Residents wonder if anyone will ever be charged.
