A massive search was recently launched in order to find a missing mother in Kentucky. Police were searching for Savannah Spurlock after she never made it home. The search made national news. Now, police have made an arrest in connection with her death.
"David Sparks, one of the last people believed to be with Spurlock, was taken into custody just before 2 a.m. Thursday and charged with tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. He was booked into a jail in Madison County," wrote Fox News.
Savannah's dad spoke out about the arrest. He says justice has been served in his daughter's death.
"For the last week, I begged God, 'Let’s have closure on it,'" the elder Spurlock said. "He did it."
Police have just come forward to reveal some disturbing details concerning the death of the young mother. Her body has been found on the suspect's property.
"Spurlock's feet were bound with tape, her body was folded over and a rug was behind her back, the detective testified Monday, according to WTVQ, adding that the rug came from Sparks' bedroom. Blood in a closet in Sparks' house matched Spurlock's DNA, the detective said, per WTVQ," wrote ABC News.
Sparks has entered a guilty plea in connection with the case. Police originally questioned multiple men, however, Sparks was always the prime suspect.
The original story is below:
"Police in Richmond, Ky., said officers and Garrard County Emergency Management were conducting a search Thursday for Spurlock in 'specific areas' in Garrard County. They did not provide further details on the areas or what information led them to those spots," reported Fox News.
Savannah was last seen on surveillance video leaving a bar in Lexington, Kentucky. She was with two men in the video. At this time, police are looking into this discovery and trying to figure out exactly what occurred after she was last seen.
“I don’t sleep at night. It’s a nightmare,” Ellen Spurlock, Savannah's mother, told Fox News. “I’m just trying to get information out to the public in the hopes and prayers that somebody is going to come forward that will lead to her.”
Savannah's best friend spoke out about the disappearance. She offered her opinion on the case and has revealed some interesting information. She says she believes there is more to the story because her friend would never have gone with the men if she knew what was going on.
"No matter how intoxicated she would have been, she would not have been willing to go with strangers to Garrard County," Sabrina Speratos, 21, told Fox News. “She would even have called her mom to come to get her if she knew they were going to take her there – that’s how close she was with her mother, with me. I mean if she didn’t want to call her mom she would have called me.”
