(WMC-TV) - Authorities arrived at the home of David Swift, whose wife was murdered in 2011, to execute a search warrant Wednesday.

Karen Swift, 44, disappeared after a Halloween party, and her murder is still unsolved. Investigators discovered Swift's body near a cemetery two miles from her home. The 44-year-old mother of four was divorcing her husband David, but they lived in the same house.

Children played in the front yard as Dyer County sheriff's deputies armed with a search warrant, along with an agent from the TBI, spent three hours at the home of David Swift looking for evidence in Karen's murder.

"Investigators of our department executed a search warrant at the residence of David Swift. Currently the nature of that search is sealed under a court order. The investigation is active and ongoing," said Dyer County Sheriff Jeff Box.

Box said the house has been searched thoroughly in the past, but he would not say if anything was found in the house Wednesday.
