As WKYT reports, Madison County police have arrested a person of interest in connection with the missing woman after authorities collected human remains at a home connected to the case. The home is believed to Spurlock’s last known location.

According to the outlet, a foul odor coming from the property where David Sparks lives alerted police to suspicious activity at the home.  That tip, in addition to the fact that Sparks is “the primary suspect in a missing person investigation,” led to a search warrant.

The home was reportedly searched once before in January.

Officials found other items buried on the property as well. Sparks’ citation said:

“These items were last known to be in the control of only two individuals, the missing person, and the above.”

Kentucky State Police spokesman Robert Purdy wrote on Twitter:

Just before midnight, human remains were located by law enforcement officials. As a result of the ongoing investigation, the deceased is being taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort for an autopsy & identification.

Sparks, 23, was charged with the abuse of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence. The remains will be taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort to positively identify if they belong to Spurlock.

They were heavily decomposed, according to reports.

Spurlock is a mom to a set of infant twins, who were born in December, as well as a 4-year-old, and one other child. She was last seen at “The Other Bar” with three men.

Sparks is expected to appear in court at 1:00 p.m. on July 11.

    What a loss and I’m sorry for her family and children’s loss. This shouldbe a great story to teach young woman the dangers of going with people you don’t know not to mention people you meet at a bar. Let it be known I’m not saying this is ok nor did she deserve only that one should learn from this case.

    I cannot believe how a lot of you want to blame this do you know if she knew these men or not, I don’t care either way., There no way someone should put there hands on you. And the person who said you should stay home with your kid’ are an IDIOT.. I had 3 girls and I worked for the Boeing company for 28 years. I work every day sometime months with out a day off. It doesn’t matter if I was working or out for a drink..which I have never drank alcohol in my life..not even a I work with 100 of men each and every day, so if I go out to the flight line or out were we stock parts and so guy got the best of me…that’s my fault..I should have not gone to work there. This was a young mom you have no idea about this young lady..just because she go out for a drink where there are men and women there…it’s her fault…I am going to play bingo where there are slots machines and they sell alcohol …and I come up missing the next day..again my fault..I heart goes out to her family and friends, and her children..I no HOW her parents feel… I to lost a daughter..he boy friends killed her and guess what they did not drink or do DRUGS…just the thought of her LEAVING him was all it took. So you who want to throw stones at this better sit back an take a look at yourself…if your daughter is 23 she can go and come an do whatever she have no idea when your child is 10 years old and when she is 23 the choicest she make are her. How dare you act like she got what she deserves…no one deserves that…I don’t care of I am walking down the street in short and a tank one has the RIGHT to touch ME…you never think CRAZY until you are up against it…OR you are the crazy’s just sad how you can judge this lady…I sure hope you are never in the wrong place…except for the one who stays home 24/7 with her kids…that won’t last long…get a job..have just…the kids will be there when you get home
