Bismarck Police say they now have the body of John Swain.

These are pictures from photographer Louis Montclair of the Fort Peck Journal, he was in the neighbors yard watching detectives work Wednesday.

He says he saw them digging in the backyard for the body.

18 year old Swain was reported missing in Bismarck May 11th.

The case turned into a murder investigation after a Bismarck resident found Swain's clothing, a cell phone and a bloody knife in a trash can in their yard.

Swain is originally from Sioux Falls, South Dakota and moved to Bismarck just a couple weeks before he was killed.

Poplar is in northeast Montana, 75 miles straight west of Williston.

Crowe is in custody in Williams County on un-related charges.

New information has came to light about the accused killer.

An Army official says Crowe received a bad conduct discharge from the U.S. Army in February.

Crowe was court-martialed at Fort Hood, Texas on allegations involving theft, drugs and assault.
