Montana Police Discover Body

Posted: Updated:

A search warrant led to a lot of activity at this home in Poplar, Montana, which police say belongs to a relative of a man accused of killing a teenager in Bismarck.

"They did locate a body.  We don't know who it is yet.  It's still there.  I'm working on having it transported to Bismarck to have an autopsy conducted," says Lt. Gary Malo, Bismarck Police Department.

Lt. Malo says dental records or DNA may be used to positively identify the body.

Eighteen-year-old John Swain was last seen in Bismarck on May 11.

Theo Crowe, 25, who has a Trenton address, has been charged with his murder, but police aren't yet saying how Swain was killed.

"We have some ideas, basically by information we've received through interviews, but I can't comment on that at this point," says Malo.

Police began investigating the disappearance as a homicide after a resident of this home on North 22nd Street found burnt clothing, a knife and parts of a cell phone in a trash can last week. Police say they've put a lot of hours into this investigation, but are still looking for more people to talk to.

"If you do know something about the case, don't hesitate. You can do it anonymously.  You can call crimestoppers, you can call in anonymously and just give the information.  Obviously there were some people who knew about this, didn't witness it, but never told the authorities," says Malo.

Police say no matter how small or trivial something may seem, if it relates to the case, they want to know about it.
