POCAHONTAS, AR -

(WMC-TV) - It's a case that shocked the Mid-South last fall. Karen Swift, 44, disappeared after a Halloween party last year, and her murder is still unsolved.

Tuesday night, friends in Pocahontas, Arkansas, will honor Swift with a graveside memorial service. It is scheduled to get underway at 5:30 p.m. at Randolph Memorial Gardens.

As friends and family gather in Swift's memory, mystery still surrounds her death.

Investigators discovered Swift's body near a cemetery two miles from her Dyersburg home last fall.

Police have not said just how she died. Investigators say they have one person of interest in this case but for right now they are not revealing who that person is.

Evidence in the case is being analyzed at the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation lab.

We know the mother of four filed for divorce two weeks before her disappearance, but was still living with her husband, David.

Investigators have not named a suspect in this case.
