"Anything that could have been taken from that phone, we've done," Lott said.  "Now the fact that we can connect that phone to Freddie Grant and his daughter is just more evidence of what we already know that Freddie is responsible for kidnapping Gabbiee and for her disappearance."

Breaking News......http://www.wltx.com/news/article/245399/2/Sheriff-Lott-The-Search-for-Gabbiee-Swainson-is-Over

 ::snipping3::Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says he believes his officers have found the location where the remains of missing Columbia teen Gabbiee Swainson have been found.

Lott says 53-year-old Freddie Grant led officers to a location near Elgin Thursday where Grant has said he buried the girl.

"The search for Gabbiee is over," Lott said. "She is coming home."

Swainson, 15, had been missing since August 18th, 2012.

Grant has been the prime suspect all along in Swainson's disappearance. He was being held in a prison in Kentucky after a conviction on a federal charge.

Sheriff Leon Lott: "The search for Gabbiee is over"
Posted: Aug 08, 2013 3:39 PM PST Updated: Aug 08, 2013 4:43 PM PST
By Jeremy Turnage - email

 

Lott made the announcement Thursday evening at a 7 p.m. news conference.  Deputies are currently at the scene near the fire department in Elgin searching for Gabbiee's remains.  The area was searched when Gabbiee disappeared last August and the FBI set up a command post there.

"Many, many people walked that area," said Lott. "But the way she was concealed, you wouldn't know. The type of hole that he dug, the things he put on top of it.  The cadaver dog would not have been able to find it at the depth that it was.  We just couldn't find it.  There's just no way of finding it without someone taking us to that area and showing us."

"We've provided them with a backhoe," said Kershaw County Sheriff James Matthews. "They are continuing to dig.  They have found a body."

Matthews said although Swainson's body was found in Kershaw County, the case remains with the  Richland County Sheriff's Department.  Matthews was called to assist the investigation Thursday afternoon.

Thank you for bringing the news Gabbiee's been found, darla.  I felt so badly for her mother not knowing where her daughter's remains were all this time. 

It's a shame a deal was made, but it may have been the only way Gabbiee could ever have been brought home. 

I hope there will be forensic evidence from Gabbiee's remains to help justice along.  Hoping and praying there will be justice for Gabbiee.

YW Muffy....She was only a a block or so from his home.  Sheriff Lott said that Freddie Grant did not lead them to the body out of the goodness of his heart! They said the way she was buried , she would have never been found if he had not taken them to the spot.

In the video, Sheriff Lott said that the turning point came when Freddie's daughter was arrested.
http://www.wltx.com/news/article/245399/2/Sheriff-Lott-The-Search-for-Gabbiee-Swainson-is-Over

In the article below, his daughter said that she was not going to lie for him, and she wanted Gabbiee to be found.

Daughter of accused kidnapper charged in Gabrielle Swainson disappearance
Published: July 11, 2013

 
During sentencing, U.S. District Court Cameron McGowan Currie said prosecutors presented credible evidence to suggest Freddie Grant pressured his daughter to lie for him in federal court.

But at Thursday’s bond hearing, Dominique Grant said is innocent, that she wouldn’t lie for her father if it meant losing her freedom. She also wants Gabrielle to be found, she said.

“If I have to lose my freedom to find out what happened to her, that’s OK,” she said.

 ::monkeyscissors::Just after 9 p.m. Thursday night, Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said crews finished removing the body from the scene, after an excavation effort that took several hours.

Lott was not specific, but said that something recovered at that scene led him to conclude beyond a doubt that his officers had found the girl's remains. :

Body found in Elgin confirmed to be Gabrielle Swainson; suspect charged after leading deputies to grave
Published August 8, 2013, Updated August 9, 2013 (47 minutes ago)
UPDATE: 12:27 p.m.

Paperwork was filed Friday morning to drop charges against Freddie Grant’s daughter, who was accused in June of trying to mislead investigators looking into Gabrielle Swainson’s disappearance.

Dominique Grant was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony when she was spotted near a Myrtle Beach grocery store where a truck driver found Gabrielle’s phone in June. Dominique Grant has been held on a $300,000 bond at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center for more than a month.

It’s believed that Dominique Grant’s release was part of a deal that led to her father revealing the location where he buried Gabrielle.

Meanwhile, Freddie Grant appeared before a magistrate judge Friday morning, where he was formally charged with murder in the teen’s death.

UPDATE 11:30 a.m.

Examiners Monday were able to confirm that the body found buried in Elgin Thursday was that of Gabrielle Swainson, according to a Richland County Sheriff’s Department release.

The girl’s identity was released as the Richland County Coroner’s Office conducts an autopsy. Exactly how Gabrielle died isn’t yet known, but that information will be released later by Richland County Coroner Gary Watts.

Dominique Grant released from jail, paperwork filed to dispose of charges
Posted: Aug 09, 2013 10:50 AM CDT Updated: Aug 09, 2013 3:20 PM CDT

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -
Dominique Grant, the daughter of murder suspect Freddie Grant, is out of jail and paperwork has been filed to dispose of the accessory after the fact charge against her.
 
"A point where this case took a very important turn was where Freddie's daughter, Dominique, was arrested," said Lott. "That was, I guess, the breaking point as far as to getting Freddie to lead us to where Gabbiee was at. So I don't want anybody to think he did this out of his conscience or he felt bad for Gabbiee or Elvia or this community. He didn't do that.  He did it solely because his daughter was arrested and she was facing some very serious jail time. That's what we needed."

The Sheriff alluded to a deal between Freddie and investigators in order for Freddie to give up the location of Swainson's body, but Lott never elaborated on the details of that deal.

It is not clear if Dominique's charges being disposed was part of the deal. 

According to criminal defense attorney Joe McCulloch, deals like this are not uncommon to get results.

"No, it's not all that unusual," said McCulloch. "There are a number of factors, the significance of his daughter's complicity here, whether she cooperated."
