ND murder suspect was court-martialed by Army

BISMARCK — Authorities have recovered a body at a Montana home owned by the grandmother of a North Dakota murder suspect.

Bismarck Police Deputy Chief Randy Ziegler tells The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/11PMC04) that officials with the Roosevelt County Sheriff's Department were serving a search warrant at the home in Poplar, Mont., on Wednesday when they discovered the body.

Authorities aren't saying whether it's the body of 18-year-old John Swain, who went missing from his Bismarck home in mid-May. Swain had recently moved from Sioux Falls, S.D. Authorities believe he was killed by 25-year-old Theo Crowe, of Trenton, who's in custody in Williston on unrelated charges. Poplar is his hometown.

Crowe received a bad conduct discharge from the Army in February. He doesn't yet have an attorney representing him in the murder case.
