A man asked by police for the disappearance of Kentucky's missing mother Savannah Spurlock was arrested on abusive charges early Thursday after officials said the remains of a man were found in a home believed to be the last Spurlock's well-known location – and which authorities have searched.
David Sparks, one of the last people believed to be with Spurlock, was taken into custody and charged with tampering with physical evidence and abusing a corpse. He was booked in a jail in Madison County.

The remains will be taken to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Frankfort, Ky., Kentucky State Police Trooper Robert Purdy. He said he could not confirm that the remains were found to be Spurlock at this time because they were heavily decomposed.
The latest development came after a person who reported a bad smell coming from the property, where Sparks lives, according to an arrest citation for the Sparks obtained by WKYT. The tip incorporated in Sparks, "the main suspect of a missing person" investigation led to the search, during which officials said they found the remains – and other items – buried on the property.
"These items are last known in the control of only two individuals, the missing person, and the above," quotes indicate, according to WKYT.
Spurlock, a mother of four who gave birth to Twins, was last seen in video surveillance January 4 after leaving The Other Bar in Lexington with two boys.
Lt. Col. Rodney Richardson, Fox News's assistant chief police officer, Fox News said Spurlock's last known location was home to Garrard County – located about 40 miles from the bar.
The house was approved by parents of Sparks and formerly searched on January 22, according to police, according to Lexington's WLEX-TV.
FBI Louisville Evidence Response Team, Kentucky State Police police officers, police officers and Richmond officials from the coroner's office began searching for the house around 10:30 pm after being given a warrant, reported WDRB.

Police questioned the two men who were spotted as well as a third person when Spurlock first lost but did not charge charges against them. Search and rescue teams specializing in K9 search left cornfields and a bridge near the house where the mother of four was last monitored for months since she was lost. In April, the police received a tip that led them to search for a cave but nothing was found, reported by WLEX-TV.
