Man Charged with Murder in Missing Person's Case

Posted: Updated:

A missing person's case is now being treated as a homicide.

Prosecutors say 25-year-old Theo Crowe of Trenton has been charged with murdering 18-year-old John Swain of Bismarck.

Swain's roommate reported him missing on May 14th.

Last week, the occupants of a house on North 22nd Street found a trash can with burnt clothing, a knife, and pieces of a cell phone inside in their shed.

The material matched what Swain had been wearing when he was last seen.

Detectives were able to identify Crowe as a suspect, and found he was already in custody on an unrelated charge in Williams County.

Court documents say the murder took place sometime between May 10th and 17th.
