David Sparks Biography – David Sparks Wiki
Kentucky man David Sparks has pleaded guilty to the murder of mom-of-three, Savannah Spurlock, nearly two years after she vanished. The Courier-Journal reports that 25-year-old David Sparks pleaded guilty Tuesday to murder, tampering with evidence, and abuse of a corpse. He’s scheduled to be sentenced in December.
Spurlock’s remains were found in July 2019 “hidden in an unnatural location” behind Sparks ‘parents’ home in Garrard County and buried in a 19-inch grave. After six months of extensive searches for Spurlock, authorities received a notice from Sparks’ father that he had noticed a foul odor behind his house.
Spurlock was last seen on a security camera with Sparks and two other men the night of his disappearance on January 4, 2019. They were leaving The Other Bar in Lexington, outside of South Limestone. According to the Richmond Police Deputy Chief of Police, Rodney Richardson, Spurlock left the bar with the men and found himself in the Garrard County home outside of Fall Lick Road.
Sparks initially told officials that Spurlock fell asleep the night he disappeared. When he woke up he claimed that the woman was gone. However, according to police, evidence found at the residence suggested that Sparks played a much worse role.
In July, detectives said they had seen security footage of Walmart where Sparks bought carpets. Researchers found Spurlock buried in a rug similar to the one they bought. Detectives also said that Sparks sent a text message to his sister the night Spurlock died and asked where he could buy a carpet.
Authorities also added that authorities found Spurlock’s blood at Sparks ‘parents’ home. Detectives found additional evidence on the property pointing to the suspect, but did not explain what else they found.
Quote from an arrest, according to WKYT “These items were last known to be under the control of only two people, the missing person and the above.”
Spurlock, mother of four, gave birth to twins in December. Her mother, Ellen Spurlock, who lives with her daughter in Richmond, was babysitting the children the night Spurlock went to the bar.
Ellen Spurlock had previously told ABC that she had spoken to her daughter via FaceTime at around 3 am when she disappeared. The worried mom said she could hear Spurlock and other people in the car, but her daughter looked fine.
“It looked good,” Ellen Spurlock said. He told me he was fine. When I asked him where he was, he said he was in Lexington. He promised he would be home later that morning. It didn’t look unusual. ”
The only suspect in the case is the spark.
