When Scott went to investigate, she found Marks in the home. She told police he was not supposed to be there and had no consent to be inside her home. She also said she had her phone in her hand, and Marks took it from her and threw it. She yelled for her daughter to call 911, and he told her to make her daughter hang up the phone.
The affidavit said that he told Scott “you know what I am capable of… your entire family and all of your friends will need witness protection if you call the police.”

Another woman tied to Marks was extradited back to Bell County in connection to the Scott-Swearingin disappearance.
Maya Maxwell. 26, was arrested and charged after she told police that she tried to hide Swearingin’s car in the Austin area after his disappearance.
