July 2019: Remains of Savannah Found
23 year old David Sparks has been charged with Savannah’s murder. Savannah’s remains were found on a property owned by a relative of Sparks in Garrard County, south of Lexington.
A week prior to discovering her remains, one of Sparks’ relatives reported a foul smell on his property and became concerned. The property had been searched five months prior in the case, but it’s unclear why her remains weren’t found.
Savannah was found buried with a rug that came from David Sparks’ bedroom. And according to detectives blood in a closet in Sparks’ house matched Spurlock’s DNA.
Sparks was interviewed by authorities when the investigation began, after finding out that Savannah was seen at his home in the morning hours after she left the bar.
His home was searched at the time, but no remains were found. He told investigators at the time that he fell asleep while she was at his home, and that she was gone when he woke up.
In August of 2019 a Garrard County grand jury indicted David Sparks in the murder of Savannah. He is currently in custody awaiting trial.
In December 2020 David Sparks, now 25 years old, pled guilty to Savannah Spurlock’s murder. He is set to be sentenced on December 17.
