PARSONS, Tenn. – When I first reported on Holly Bobo, the 20-year-old girl missing in Tennessee,  it was based on the very first media reports that, as usual, were full of incorrect information. Three days later, and a clearer picture has developed surrounding Bobo’s apparent abduction.

Holly’s brother did not witness her being dragged from the family’s carport as originally reported. He saw her being led towards a wooded area by a man in camaflouge that he assumed was her boyfriend. He only saw him from the back and he had her by the arm or hand, but not in a forceful manner. He did not become alarmed until he found Bobo’s car still in the carport along with some blood. He called his mother, who was not at home, then called 911.

That paints an entirely different picture and answers my initial questions about the brothers involvement and makes a lot more sense. Police also are reporting he has been ruled out as a suspect. But that isn’t the only news about Bobo’s abduction. Searchers are now in an area eight miles away after authorities say they discovered her lunchbox near a creek. Earlier reports of a car being found with Bobo’s cell phone and camouflage clothing inside were incorrect, according to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent John Mehr.

Bobo is a gorgeous, 5-foot-3, 110-pound blonde, last seen wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans. She is also the cousin of country singer, Whitney Duncan who was on her Facebook page and Twitter asking for prayers. “My cousin Holly was kidnapped this morning,” she wrote. “Please pray for her & our family. This is really sad & shocking.”

If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Holly Bobo, police are asking contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

    I read that they did have the hounds out searching. LE got on the case pretty quickly; I wish they’d been able to catch up to them. Curious about her lunch box, found 8 miles from her home…were they really hoofing it that far?

    Unfortunately dakota, you are probably right. I suspect they will find her body today. So sad. I have a hard time watching her mother on TV, I cry like a baby when I see her breakdown. I can’t imagine and honestly don’t want to imagine what she and her entire family are going through. I can’t think of any worse pain in this world that to have your child abducted and then have to just wait, knowing full well that as each day goes by, the likelihood of him/her being alive gets smaller and smaller. To me, that is what Hell would be like.

    … I still call BULLSHIT on the brother.

    If they all lived in the same house, you would think that Holly brought her boyfriend around and all family members would take note of the boyfriend’s mannerisms, stature and how he behaved towards her. Her brother thought it was her boyfriend? And he STILL called his mom first THEN 911? Really? :|

    Now that we have all the facts somewhat correct. Something funny goin’ on with the brother.
    He looks kinda scrawny according to his and his sisters facebook.
    His name is Clint Bobo

    If he is involved, I hoped the rape by the creek won’t come to play. Relative humidity is measured by the amount of sweat on your balls when you get caught raping your sister.

  • rebecca

    sounds like the brother is involved and was probably threatened by the dude; which could be why he recanted his story. problem is: motive.
    I hope she wasn’t raped or killed in a brutal manner, tho the camo doesn’t give much hope : /

    I love how this story is updated, to state that all the confusion and varying reports that have been floating around since this unfolded and made it appear that the brother was suspect, but is not in fact suspect, because:

    “Police also are reporting he has been ruled out as a suspect”

    Yet the majority of you still think he’s involved. LMAO.

    I have not been commenting much on this case because to me, it’s like a Casey Anthony/Hailey Dunn case. It will be blown up by the media, swallowing up all the other missing people out there. That’s not to say that I don’t care, I just don’t like it when cases get that much attention over others.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I understand what you are getting at, but I do not see how this story compares to CaseyHailey. Those stories continue to focus on the people surrounding the girl. This one picked up immediately after the abduction for good reason. The fact that her cousin is a popular country singer doesn’t hurt in the media department…but that’ not Bobo’s fault and could possibly help in the long run.

    However, if there have been any other college students out there who were taken into the woods by a man in camouflage and is still missing three days later, we’d be more than happy to buck the trend of all the other media sites and report on them as well. Just point us to it.

    And I meant to add, I agree with you about the brother. Now that the details are being released, it makes a lot of sense. And to clarify, the brother didn’t recant…the media did.

  • Wanderer

    The camo doesn’t give much hope? What an ignorant comment. Lots of people wear camo, including myself… and somehow in your mind, people who wear camo rape and kill in a brutal manner???????? You’re an idiot.

  • Parrot Toes

    The only comparison that I’m attempting to make (though I am tired and probably not being all that clear right now) is that if this girl doesn’t show up dead or alive in the next few days or so, and I do hope she shows up alive, I just worry that it’s going to turn into a media circus like the cases I mentioned have and drag on. That’s it. I do get however that the attention right now is good for the cause.

    I really hope she does get found alive. Or at least found so that the family can get closure.

  • Athena

    No, the blood doesn’t give much hope. The camo has nothing to do with it. :(

    Why of course it does. Just like wearing a white tank shirt means that a man beats his wife.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I got ya. Well I can guarantee you this…if she isn’t found, and her family turns out to be a bunch of morons who like the camera, this WILL be another CaseyHailey type scenario. It’s the only common denominator with missing girl cases…they have to be white, missing and their family has to have to be brain-dead with no problem airing drama for the cameras.

As you can see by some of the posts here, once this type of false information starts, it isn’t easily quelled. I’m sure it is a lot worse for the brother in his home town than some comments on DD. Even after this info came out, I’ll bet he has to stay indoors for fear of getting beat up, or worse. All the different stories and false info is poor and lousy coverage by the media.

    Her behavior doesn’t ring true to me, either, Andy. The sobbing seems forced and whiney, and my gut says she is playacting. Later during the press conference, when the sheriff gets all choked up and can’t go on, I reacted with tears because his emotion was genuine.

    If a mother ‘crying’ over her missing, abducted daughter doesn’t get another mother who is very empathetic and cries easily (me), to tear up and cry, watching her, there’s something wrong there, I think.

    Apparently, from many comments I’ve read and from crime experts’ opinions on this subject, I’m not the only one with this viewpoint.

    Please give me a specific source that states that the police or media got the story wrong in the first place.

    I think it more likely that the brother changed his story after the police investigators looked for drag marks on the ground and couldn’t find any. I did find a news story that did report that they looked and none were found. From an April 16 ABC News article titled “Holly Bobo: Clues Emerge in Tennessee Abduction as Search Continues”

    QUOTE

    Mehr said investigators “did not see drag marks.” He added she was “not forcefully dragged and she’s like any other victim, maybe complying with her attacker, but she walked into the woods” outside her Parsons, Tenn. home.

    END QUOTE

    That same article reports that, “contrary to initial reports, police NOW say Bobo wasn’t dragged by her alleged abductor…”

    John Mehr is the spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

    For TWO days ALL of the publishing and broadcast media, many that were physically present at the press conference in Tennessee, specifically state that the girl was dragged away.

    I think the investigators may be playing the brother, saying he is not a suspect, while they look for more clues, investigate, and closely observe him.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    No, it’s not lousy coverage… it’s simply par for the course when news first starts coming out on a case and no different than the multitudes of comments made on this site, including by you, on stories in which you have little to no actual information. The media has been pretty good at clarifying reports as they come in.

    The people closest to this situation, including law enforcement, were aware of the facts of this case. I doubt very much that the brother, or Holly’s family, cares at all what people on a website think at this point.

    The only other way this story could have been handled, is to wait until TODAY, three days after she was abducted, before giving out information. Regardless of the particulars and the factual details, the news got the most important part right — Holly was taken against her will by a man in camo. The rest of the details are just gossip points that did not effect anything aside from public opinion for those that wanted to jump the gun.

    you hit the nail on the head when you said “forced” – it does seem a bit drummed up, BUT maybe it was for the cameras. maybe she didn’t want to look like a complete asshole for not crying.

    my mom didn’t shed a tear when news came my brother had died, she was obviously upset, but no real tears came until she viewed the body. but my father on the other hand.. well he crumpled to the floor, wailed and flailed about like a baby in front of the police officer. polar opposites.

    that’s my take on it.

  • Alicia

    Why would the media report so much misinformation? Don’t journalists/reporters have some sort of code of ethics to follow when reporting facts on a story as serious as this? Such as oh, I don’t know, IT HAS TO BE TRUE!? Why didn’t the reporters CHECK the information they were getting before reporting it? Oh wait, I know, each news station just HAD to be the first to report on every little thing and making sure what they were reporting was in fact true would take time; screw fact checking, they just reported everything they were told, not caring if it could lead the investigation in a completely wrong direction or cause the court of public opinion to verbally crucify her brother by hinting he may be a suspect because he watched the abductor drag her away.

    I’m sorry, but this really bothers me. If reporters and journalists are going to do a story this serious, they need to have their facts straight from the get go, that way when sites such as Dreamin Demon report on them so MORE people can know about this, readers get the correct facts the first time.

    Thank you for updating us on this story Morbid. A lot of sites don’t do that, which is why I visit this site and not any other.

  • pikeman

    Yes, I see your point there. It doesn’t change the fact that the brother is taking a lot of heat for something he didn’t do, though. Comments from some posters here like Jolie Adams is proof of that. Once the correct info comes out, they still continue to bash him and refuse to accept the fact that they are wrong, and he didn’t witness the abduction. Sad, really.

Does it really matter *who* got it wrong? Could come down to simple “semantics” – one person’s “dragged” is another person’s “forcefully walked”.

    This makes me sick and I bet the brother wishes more than anything he would have said something to her or done something different obviously. I thought the interview with the Mother was weird too. Just saying. I also agree with what the Dad said about the family schedule unless it was just pure bad timing. It sure doesn’t look good and the odds of her being found safe and alive are against her unfortunately. I hope, by some miracle of God, she is able to beat those odds.

    I disagree. There’s no preset ‘grief face’ and suggesting one exists is silly. When my daughter died, my grief was mine and not to be shared with the strangers in the ER. Granted, when the exam room curtains were closed, it was a different story.

    So she looks fairly devastated to me.

    Police have been known to mislead the public in order to keep an eye on people they DO think are suspects. So no matter what the police really say right now, the brother could be on their list, but telling the reporters that he’s not a suspect would leave the police free to keep an eye on him and watch to see if he slipped up. This was a tactic used by the cops on Shaun Gayle when his longtime girlfriend was murdered; they lead the public to believe that Shaun was *the* suspect so that the REAL suspect would think that the heat was off of her (ha ha, does anyone else watch 20/20? This case was profiled a couple of nights ago).

  • FrikkenFrak

    “That paints an entirely different picture and answers my initial questions about the brothers involvement and makes a lot more sense”.

    Thank you…..I was scratching my noggin’ over this, too, Morbid.

    What I originally read was that a family member saw her being dragged into the woods. All I could think of is what the hell kind of BOBO watches someone get dragged off into the woods by a stranger and does nothing? Oh…wait….that would describe the majority of the people featured on this site.

    Ok, rephrase…what NORMAL person would do that….

  • FrikkenFrak

    Thank you for sharing that, Zazen. And you are so very right. People grieve differently.

    I know that I cannot fathom the grief you must have had and have. I would never say to a parent who’s lost a child “I understand”, because I know I couldn’t possibly. Not even close.

    As a parent myself, I can’t imagine any other hurt in this world, or any other form of loss, that could ever compare to loosing one of my children.

    What about something found 8 miles away would make the finder think “I wonder if this belongs to that missing girl?” Maybe it’s because I live in the city that I just do not understand, around here people leave CARS abandoned and nobody thinks it may be connected to a missing person.

Hell, even if I knew the person without a doubt, I’d wonder why the hell they were taking my sister into the woods like that.

    PARSONS, Tenn. – When I first reported on Holly Bobo, the 20-year-old girl missing in Texas

    …………………………………..get your states straight!

  • Wicked Smilee

    Mom has Dry eyes, and is an obvious attention whore. Don’t know if/what she did that makes her “act” on camera, or if she just doesn’t care, or maybe she is in shock, and doesn’t care “yet”, but it’s definately one of those options, and None of them are good. All I know is once my kid was missing for an hour, and I came home from work, fucking losing it. It was an embarrassing scene, as I ran around and banged on doors, crying, and calling 911… and I’m a very subtle type person, not a public displayer in the least bit normally. It’s just when you’re in a situation like that, you go a little nuts. Which brings me back to the mom,… she’s definately a nutcase, hopefully not a psychopathic one…. The sherrif showed emotion. Mom faked it. Betcha,…

    Not saying she did anything to her daughter, but she DID ham it up for the viewers… That’s pretty obvious.

    I can see why you would have that opinion, and I respect it, but I have to say that expecting someone to react in a certain way in a given situation can always cause suspicion. We are not all the same and we will not all act the same. Given all the info that has come out on this now, I am sure the whole family is still in some form of shock. And I am back-pedaling from more former stance of BS alarms screeching and something stinking in TN regarding the brother.

    I seriously doubt the police have enough solid information to exclude ANYONE at this point.

    The whole “dragged away by a man in camo” thing sounds a little fishy to me, but it could be true. We’re probably going to have to wait for more details before we can point any fingers.

I’m definitely back-pedaling from what I thought my opinion was on this, although now it is hard to form one since the info is getting skewed. I’m having a tough time figuring out where I stand on this as of yet.

    Do you have a link stating that they are specifically looking at the brother and the ex now? Everything I’ve seen has simply clarified that no one has been ruled out (which would generally include the brother and the ex, but it would generally include dozens of people who both know and don’t know the family).

    It seems, thus far, that suspicion pointed at the family is based solely on mom’s appearance. Seems pretty unwarranted. Hell, if you people has seen me after my mother died unexpectedly, you’d have thought I killed her.

    I think some people found the idea that the brother supposedly saw his sister being “dragged” off and did nothing even more suspicious. However, it turns out that may or may not be an accurate report of what happened, or even of what the brother actually stated. It seems to me we all need to wait for more facts before we either accuse or exonerate anyone.

    http://www.examiner.com/missing-persons-in-national/hollo-bobo-search-tbi-says-this-is-no-hoax-searchers-needed-tue-75k-reward

    Gwyn said as of Monday there is no person of interest in the case.

    This case has been riddled with rumors and accusations against Holly’s family and her boyfriend. “We don’t deal with rumors,” Gwyn announced. “We stick to facts. As long as leads come in, we will be here.”

    Asked if Holly’s brother and boyfriend have been ruled out as suspects in the case, TBI spokeswoman Kristen Helm wrote in an email Monday afternoon, “To reiterate what the Director [of TBI] said, no one has been ruled out at this time.

    “However, the focus of law enforcement developing a suspect is outside immediate friends and family.

    “Both Clint and Drew have been helpful and cooperative throughout the investigation. Clint, is being treated as an eye witness at this time,” she said.

    And your comment makes no sense. You begin with the misinformation on the boyfriend and brother as if to shine the light of suspicion on them – yet you end with accusing her MOTHER because she didn’t “act” the way you *expect* a grieving mother to act! Are you implying a family plot to get rid of their sister/daughter?? Really??

  • MISSanthropic

    I don’t think anyone can say how they would react to something if it has not happened to them. Plus, everyone is different. You reacted by “losing it”. Some may criticize that by saying that is probably not the *best* thing to do when your child is missing. Keeping a level head about it is probably the most effective reaction in that situation. But again, I may lose it too, if that were to happen to me one day. One can’t really say.

    Being an attention whore could possibly be a character flaw of hers, but it’s not to say she isn’t grieving.

    It’s kind of fascinating to watch how using the word “dragged” instead of “led” fueled the brother-as-a-suspect rumor and how tough it is to squash it once it started.

    not to mention, even your supermodel victim wore camo. I hunt, yes, but I don’t only wear it when I hunt. I love the outdoors and don’t think I have to be hunting to wear camo. My most comfortable hoody is realtree camo. AND I LIVE IN CHICAGO! I have a bigger problem with people who wear leopard print or zebra print than people who wear camo. If we lived by your rules, fat chicks would only be able to wear animal print when they’re in the jungle, right?

    How in the world do you know what the brother did or didn’t do? No matter what version of the story you choose to read, it states the brother states he WAS a witness to the alleged abduction, even if he states he didn’t recognize the event to be what it was. There are two versions of the story reported (so far): 1) he saw her dragged away by a man in camo or 2) he saw her walking away with a man in camo (with the police adding “in fear for her life”). Either way, if there was an abduction, he witnessed it.

    If the blood found was Holly’s or the alleged abductor’s, I don’t know how in the heck the brother couldn’t see that something was wrong with the situation by the body language of both of them as they walked away.

    If the brother turns out to be involved in whatever happened to Holly Bobo, will you be back to say you were wrong?

    No. The police get their info from 911 dispatchers. That info is not always accurate. Why is everyone so hell-bent on this being the brother? It’s almost like you will be disappointed if it isn’t.

    I honestly don’t know what it is about this case that makes me feel that the brother is not involved, but I have had that feeling since the very beginning. Kyron Horman, my gut said stepmom. Hailey Dunn, my gut says mom/stepdad. Casey Anthony, mom.

    Usually, I would say yeah, it was the brother, mostly because statistically, these crimes tend to be committed by someone the victim knows, particularly family. Not this one though. For me my gut says it’s not the brother.

    I do hope that I don’t have to eat crow because well, I love my birds on my shoulders, not in my tummy,

    I am apologizing ahead of time for going off the topic of this story here, but there is a story in Quebec, Canada that is a great example of how 911 and the media can get things twisted around.

    Adam Benhamma was a 4 year old little boy who went missing from a yard (not his own) a few weeks ago. His father left him and his older sister playing outside for a minute while he went into the house. The daughter told her father that she didn’t know where the boy went. The friend they were visiting called 911. It turned out that Adam was autistic and deaf. The media reported this, alluding to the boys’ autism as severe. It was reported that because he was deaf, he could not communicate or hear anyone calling him. All of this information made this a sensational story.

    A few days later, corrections were reported. The boy was not a severe autistic. He had a hearing impairment, but was not deaf. He could also talk. Lastly, his last name was spelled wrong, it should be Benhamama, not Benhamma (though, most media sources have stuck with the wrong spelling for some reason).

    Between the family friend being vague in his information to 911 and the media playing on the sensationalism of the boys condition, the search was carried out, but without calling out for him because of the obvious misconceptions. As well, gloom was over this case from the start since all the wrong information made this little boy almost invisible to search efforts and in his own world.

    It’s turned out that the boy still hasn’t been found and it is believed that he may have fallen into a very nearby river. Hopefully his body will be recovered with thawing. It’s a very sad story.

  • hershey

    You would be surprised what kind of people show up to “help” for these types of searches. Ladies in high heels, parents with their toddlers and/or strollers, people who have never walked a mile in their life and have to quit after the first 100 yards. You have to walk a straight line/grid and when searchers start dropping out, it gets messed up. Sounds like this is rough terrain if we are talking creek beds and woods.

    I don’t know if the brother did this or not. I just hate people thinking they are some kind of Columbo because of the word “dragged” being changed to “led.”

    Also, I have to look at the facts. Let’s say it is the brother. Now, please explain to me how he worked in such a small time-frame considering he did something to his sister and hid her, called his mom, called 911, had time to put duct tape on her, sprinkle her blood in the yard, and drop off her lunchbox (which contained her lunch, btw) 8-miles away.

    That makes more sense than someone abducting her? Of course anything is possible, but with the info the public has now, it still just seems like an abduction by someone other than the brother.

    Yep, you are right. About the Columbo thing. They are the same type of people who would bog down police tip lines because they think that they’ve solved the case.

    As for the brother, the only way that he could be involved with all the time frame issues against him, is to have arranged for someone else to do it for him.

    I really hope that the girl is found soon though, whether she is alive or not, though, chances are good that she’s dead. I also hope that whoever is responsible is caught.

  • pikeman

    There was a link I posted that said he didn’t witness the abduction, but I don’t know. I’m just going by what I read, like you, so you don’t need to be snide about it.

    And no, I don’t think he was involved. If he did witness it, I think he should have done more about it, though.

    You do know that the time frame was CREATED by the brother, right? He’s the one that reported the alleged abduction and supposedly the only witness. In criminal cases, you can never automatically assume that what a witness tells you is the truth. In fact, it is well-known that the last one to allegedly see the victim is the first one to be suspected as possibly involved with the crime.

    Other than family members, when was the last time that it can be confirmed that Holly Bobo was seen alive?

    Items could have been dropped by suspects or accomplices any time AFTER the 911 call was made.

    Too many things point to the brother being involved in some way. Either that, or he is one strange and unusual fellow.

    You were the first one to make a judgment on other people, basically stating they were wrong and you were right about this (na na na na na kind of thing) when you wrote:

    Pikeman wrote: “Comments from some posters here like Jolie Adams is proof of that. Once the correct info comes out, they still continue to bash him and refuse to accept the fact that they are wrong, and he didn’t witness the abduction. Sad, really.”

    It’s funny that you would take offense by my logical response to it “If the brother turns out to be involved in whatever happened to Holly Bobo, will you be back to say you were wrong?”

    You put yourself out there as being an authority who KNOWS what happened and others are WRONG. In fact, you are so right about things, that you can PREDICT THE FUTURE by knowing what certain anonymous posters online are going to think and do after the conclusion of the Holly Bobo case. Amazing talent you have there. (intentional snideness now).

    In studies released by the United States Department of Justice, only 14% of all murders committed between 1976 and 2005 involved strangers. On the other hand—and using 2008 numbers—the odds the victim of a solved murder was not a stranger to the murderer are 1 in 1.28 (78%). The odds a victim of a solved murder was in an intimate relationship with the murderer are1 in 5.94. And the odds a victim of a solved murder was related to the murderer are even greater: 1 in 4.3.

    John Walsh, host of America’s Most Wanted, said AMW is working closely with the Decatur Co. Sheriff’s department on this case. In an interview with FOX News this weekend, he said regarding Clint Bobo, Holly’s brother: “…I’m not saying he’s a suspect, but he’s a person of interest. He’s the only one who saw her taken.” He states the brother and all the family members should have polygraph tests done by the authorities to help the authorities rule them out as being involved in Holly’s disappearance. John and his wife Reve did that when their son Adam Walsh was abducted (and killed) 30 years ago. (The case was officially closed in December 2008 with naming Adam’s killer–Ottis Toole, who died 10 years earlier.)

    Clint Bobo is almost a mysterious to the public as the alleged abductor of Holly Bobo. Even though he is reportedly the last person to see her and report her going off with a man into the woods, he is nowhere to be seen. No photos online of him with media reports about his sister’s disappearance or in any social media that can be accessed by the public.

    He has given no interviews to the media, despite his being the only witness to the alleged crime.

    He did not attend the family press conference the day after his sister disappeared, to give his parents moral support and a show of solidarity, and perhaps speak to the alleged abductor and/or his sister through the camera.

    You have to ask yourself why is Clint Bobo apparently hiding from scrutiny, if he is telling the truth about what happened?

    If a neighbor heard a scream and thought it might be Holly’s, why didn’t Clint Bobo hear that scream?

    If Holly or the abductor were injured at the carport, leaving blood behind (if the blood is one of theirs), why couldn’t Clint Bobo determine something was wrong by the tone of their voices (he said he heard them talking, which is why he looked out the window). Why couldn’t he see something wrong in their body language as they walked away?

    Is their mother, Karen Bobo, covering up for her son and not being honest about what she knows? Her unconvincing, suspicious behavior at the April 14 press conference leads me to believe she is. Her talking about sending her daughter away on a vacation after she is rescued and raising money from the public for that or some other gift to Holly is another red flag that these people are not behaving as one would expect.

    I think (and hope) the investigators are also taking a hard look at Clint Bobo and the family and their possible involvement in Holly’s disappearance.

    I can predict the future. I predicted you wouldn’t like my comment and I was right, Nancy Grace. I predict you won’t like this one, either. Seriously, you keep going on about this when none of us knows for sure what happened. According to that link I posted, the brother didn’t witness the abduction. The story keeps changing, and I’m tired of wading through all the comments. Until something enlightening happens, maybe we should both shut up about it.

  • hershey

    My 2 cents:

    First Theory and my gut feeling
    LE knows who is responsible and they are using the searchers to just look for clues so they can make the perp sing. Of course finding the body would help too.

    Second Theory
    She has been kidnapped for ransom and LE is in contact with the kidnappers. We don’t know much about the family (work, background, etc.), so it could be plausible.

    Selling t-shirts. WTF? The last thing as a parent I would be thinking of is where to send my kidnapped child on a vacation when she got back! But if I did…I would use the money to buy locks and chains to chain her to my body and never let her out of my sight again!

  • hershey

    I’m so confused. If the brother didn’t witness the abduction, why was it reported the abductor was wearing camouflage?

  • pikeman

    It is pretty confusing, isn’t it, hershey? What I was referring to was what one link said, but there has been so many versions in different articles that it is hard to say what the hell happened. Why do you think I’m tired of wading through this thread and all the comments by Nancy Grace and Company. If I wanted to hear that much gossip I’d just go hang out at the local Knitting Club.:P

    No, pikeman, maybe you should just “shut up about it” since you are the one having trouble with following media reports and wading through the comments. I’m doing just fine, thank you very much. No one is forcing you to follow this story or read the comments. What makes you think you should be a hall monitor for the rest of us who want to?

  • http://twitter.com/Jolieishere Jolie Adams

    Almost all of the media reports specify that it is the brother who saw his sister with a man, with three different versions of the story:

    1) Holly was dragged by a man in camouflage from the carport to the woods (story #1, confirmed by TBI’s press release that day, which makes it likely that they got that description directly from Clint Bobo, the only person home that morning when the event allegedly occurred)

    2) Clint Bobo saw his sister Holly walking away with a man in camo, who Clint thought was Holly’s boyfriend. He didn’t think anything was wrong, so he did nothing in response until later when he went outside and found blood on/by the carport and then called 911. Some reports state a neighbor heard screaming and called 911. Some say the mother was the second person who called 911. Most articles state that two 911 calls were made. The name of the second person, other than Clint, is not being released by authorities. (story #2, widely reported in the media, coinciding with the reporting of story #3 below)

    3) Holly Bobo was led away by a man in camo. He had one hand on her arm and she was “in fear for her life” according to authorities. (story #3, which does not mesh up with #2 because if Clint thought the man was Holly’s boyfriend and that there wasn’t any problem at first, he couldn’t possibly have thought Holly was in fear for her life at the time, right?)

    My strong suspicion is that it is Clint Bobo who has changed his story when confronted with evidence that counters his earlier accounts. When no drag marks were found on the property by investigators and he was questioned why he did nothing to stop a man dragging his sister away or call 911 right away, he changed his story, I think.

    I don’t know what Pikeman is referring to. I didn’t see the link that supposedly states the brother didn’t witness the abduction. The whole premise of her being abducted is based on the brother’s report, according to authorities in all media articles.

  • http://twitter.com/Jolieishere Jolie Adams

    Yes. If you read the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s press release of April 13, 2011, the day that Holly disappeared, you will see that it was this press release and likely other comments made directly by authorities to the press that put those exact words into the news stories. Guess where the information for the press release came? Most likely directly from the police report taken from talking with Clint Bobo after his 911 call that morning:

    MISSING WOMAN FEARED TO BE VICTIM OF HOME INVASION KIDNAPPING
    Nashville, Tenn. –

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office are actively looking for leads in a possible home invasion and abduction of a 20-year-old Darden, Tenn. woman from her home this morning.

    Holly Bobo was last seen by a family member being drug across the carport of her home on Swan Johnson Road toward a wooded area by a man wearing camouflage clothing. Holly is 5’3″, weighs 110 pounds and was last seen wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans at approximately 7:30 am. The TBI’s Violent Crime Response Team is responding to gather evidence at the scene. Currently, there is no vehicle information available. Anyone with information in the whereabouts of Holly Bobo is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

    END QUOTE

    So if Clint Bobo described Holly being “dragged away by a man” on 04/13/11, and that is how the police reported it to the media, how can the media be blamed?

  • http://twitter.com/Jolieishere Jolie Adams

    See my comment posted today, 04/27/11, re. a full copy of the TBI press release from 04/13/11, the same day that Holly disappeared. It specifically describes the event as a possible home invasion and that Holly was dragged away from the carport to the wooded area by a man in camo.

    Guess where they got that description? Most likely from the report from the police officer who responded to Clint Bobo’s 911 call and spoke with CB directly.

    Still want to blame the media?

When no drag marks were found on the property by investigators and he was questioned why he did nothing to stop a man dragging his sister away or call 911 right away, he changed his story, I think.

    That is what I suspected all along too because the stories are changing. Also, they may not be releasing who was behind the other 911 call for fear someone may kill their only witness.

    However, this scenario doesn’t make sense about the 911 calls IF Clint did it.
    1) presumably neighbor called when the screams were heard
    2) Clint didn’t call until blood was found sometime later

    Wouldn’t the police have been dispatched after the first call? So…if he hid the lunchbox 8 miles away, it would seem the police would have been at the house already when he returned.

    I think I’ll change my theory to Clint didn’t do it, but he knows who did.

    Why is everyone giving arebecca such hell for the camo comment? Everyone wears black but it is still associated with cat burglars and night crimes. Camo is immediately associated with hunting and avoiding detection in the woods, which is where this man led Holly Bobo, who was not, in fact, wearing camo.

    Discovery of Holly Bobo purse launches large-scale search

    DARDEN, TN (WSMV) –
    Channel 4 News has learned that there is a major search of an area of Darden, TN, after the discovery of a purse on Wednesday that has been identified as belonging to Holly Bobo.
    [,,,]
    Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the search, including the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

    Investigators said the dog brought the purse to the back door of a home near the intersection of Myracle Town and Box roads. This area is about a mile from Bobo’s home.

    The purse has been taken to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

    Local authorities are searching the area today to try to find where the dog may have discovered the purse.

    Bobo, a resident of Darden, TN, has been missing for more than two years. She vanished from Parsons in Decatur County on April 13, 2011

    A neighbor’s dog found the purse and dragged it back to the dog owner’s home.

    The bag matches the description of one Bobo was carrying when she disappeared, and there were items in the purse indicating it belonged to the young woman, said TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm.

    “We don’t know where the dogs found the purse, but we have other dogs out there searching to see if they can find where they found it,” Helm said, adding that the area had already been searched several times.

    Tammy White, a close friend of the Bobo family, said Holly’s mother, Karen, hasn’t been allowed to see the purse yet.

    Until she and family members see it, they’re being cautious in their enthusiasm about a potential break in the case.

    “You’d like to believe that maybe it is Holly’s, but we’ve heard a lot of stuff that hasn’t been true, so we have to just wait and see what happens,” White said.

    Investigators and the mother of a missing nursing student say a purse found this week does not belong to Holly Bobo.

    Karen Bobo, Holly’s mother, saw a photo of the purse and told investigators that she thought it belonged to her missing daughter. But Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said after Bobo saw it in person she realized it wasn’t Holly’s.

    Holly Bobo update: Does someone close to home know what happened?

    May 11, 2013

    On May 9, 2013 Taste of Country reported that the search for Holly Bobo has a new set of eyes and some startling new information which could possibly lead to closure in this case. The head of the organization Without Warning is pouring resources into the search for the missing Tenn. nursing student, and she claims that a “digital map” gleaned from tracing Holly’s cellphone indicates some disturbing possibilities. She believes the mystery suspect is a local who knows the back roads surrounding Holly’s Darden home, and he may have even come back to the area after kidnapping her. This might mean he lives in the area, but that doesn’t bode well for the family of the missing woman.

    The head of Without Warning believes the suspect “doubled back to almost where the abduction took place,” sometime after taking Holly Bobo to a secondary location. This claim does absolutely nothing to take suspicion away from the direction of Clint Bobo, who reportedly watched his sister be kidnapped from the property by a man in camouflage gear. Clint’s story has famously evolved and changed over the past two years, which has done nothing but attract negative attention off of him, and his latest interview with a Tenn. news source only made it worse. As this post points out, Clint Bobo appeared in an interview back in 2011 and his story then differs quite a bit from the story he told just recently. That means he has more than three versions of what happened on that April morning in 2011.

    Could it be possible that Clint Bobo or someone else in the Bobo household knows more about what happened to Holly than what’s being revealed to the media and public? Or could someone very extremely close to the Bobo household be involved? Why would the phone be tracked all the way back to around the home unless the person had specific reason to do so? This was all during the time when the region was crawling with volunteers, police, national guardsmen and FBI agents.

    Holly Bobo’s phone pings signal near home hours after abduction

    PARSONS, TN (WSMV) –
    In what could be the most startling piece of evidence yet
    in the mysterious disappearance of Holly Bobo comes proof that whoever
    grabbed the young nursing student – and her cell phone – went back to
    Bobo’s home the very same day.

    It may be the biggest single break in the search for Bobo and the development that could help solve the case.

    Since the Channel 4 I-Team’s reports on the Bobo investigation first
    aired, tips have poured in and information that had been forgotten has
    been put back into the active files.

    With the blessing of the Bobo family, a team of investigators led by
    nationally known Brentwood mom Sheila Wysocki is uncovering new
    developments in the case.

    Wysocki received national attention for obtaining a private
    investigator license and solving her college roommate’s murder 20 years
    after the crime. Now, she has brought together the full resources of her
    nonprofit group, Without Warning: Fight Back, and is working to help
    the Bobos find out, once and for all, what happened to Holly.

    Bobo’s abductor made a big mistake by leaving her cell phone turned
    on, so with the help of GPS tracking, the location of Bobo’s phone can
    be plotted on a map that traces a path through Parsons that eventually
    heads back in the direction of the Bobo family home.

    Keep in mind, Bobo was abducted at about 8 a.m., and the first law enforcement officer arrived at the Bobo home at 8:11 a.m.

    Then, Holly Bobo’s phone pinged a GPS signal within a quarter-mile
    from her home at 9:58 a.m., nearly two hours after she was taken.

    “We know at Five Forks at 9:58, there’s another ping. The relevance
    of that is, I believe, there is a police car with a police blockade
    right there, so we could have dashcam video of who arrived with Holly’s
    phone at 9:58 a.m.,” said Mike, a Nashville cyberspecialist and member
    of the Without Warning team.

    The investigators believe that although the first responders had
    arrived by 9:58 a.m., the abduction was recent enough that everyone who
    had come to the home to look for Bobo by that point was still local.

    “There isn’t going to be outsiders from other towns. The search party
    consisted of people in the town who knew Holly and the family,” said
    Paul Fantozzi, a member of the Without Warning team.

    “I think, at 9:58 a.m., we now have a cell phone and a face in the
    same place – and possibly at Five Forks a police car dashcam,” Mike
    said.

    So, this 2-year-old case that seemed so cold suddenly feels hot again, and that cell phone keeps coming up.

    The phone was found days after Bobo’s disappearance, sitting right on
    busy Highway 641 north of Parsons. The SIM card was later found just
    across the highway. Everything was still in perfect working order.

    “The phone and the SIM card are placed in a very public, highly
    traveled road. They were found much later but still in perfect condition
    – the SIM card could be put in another phone and used. It seems those
    things were more calculated in their placement,” said Without Warning
    team member Liz Beatty.

    “Again, that goes to if they are placing these items they are very
    calculated. It’s got to be someone who knows the area – a local person
    very familiar with the area,” Wysocki said.

    The investigators say they now have a time and a place where the
    abductor was near the home, and they say the possible suspect is part of
    a relatively small group.

    “The circle is very small. It’s not somebody from Miami. It’s not
    somebody from out of state. It’s somebody local,” Wysocki said.

    The Without Warning team is suggesting a town hall meeting where
    everyone who searched for Holly on the day she disappeared – April 13,
    2011 – gathers to go over every detail as a group.

    Then, all of those searchers in the same room could help put together a picture of who showed up at 9:58 a.m.
    There is already talk in Parsons of organizing this town meeting

    – the SIM card could be put in another phone and used. It seems those
    things were more calculated in their placement,” said Without Warning
    team member Liz Beatty.

    “Again, that goes to if they are placing these items they are very
    calculated. It’s got to be someone who knows the area – a local person
    very familiar with the area,” Wysocki said.

    The investigators say they now have a time and a place where the
    abductor was near the home, and they say the possible suspect is part of
    a relatively small group.

    “The circle is very small. It’s not somebody from Miami. It’s not
    somebody from out of state. It’s somebody local,” Wysocki said.

    The Without Warning team is suggesting a town hall meeting where
    everyone who searched for Holly on the day she disappeared – April 13,
    2011 – gathers to go over every detail as a group.

    Then, all of those searchers in the same room could help put together a picture of who showed up at 9:58 a.m.
    There is already talk in Parsons of organizing this town meeting

    Man accuses Ind. cop of killing Holly Bobo

    WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana man has been arrested after police say
    he falsely accused an area officer of killing a Tennessee woman who has
    been missing for two years.

    Michael Roy
    Wiggins was being held Tuesday on $100,000 bond in the Kosciusko County
    Jail. A jail officer didn’t know if the 32-year-old North Webster
    resident had an attorney.

    The
    Journal Gazette reports that Wiggins was arrested Monday on preliminary
    charges of obstruction of justice and false informing.

    Police
    said Wiggins sent an email to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation
    alleging a North Webster officer took his squad car to Tennessee,
    abducted and killed nursing student Holly Bobo and then buried her body
    at a farm in northern Indiana in April 2011.

    TBI believes video may help solve Bobo murder
    [QUOTE]Investigators have unveiled the first piece of possible evidence in the murder case involving Holly Bobo.
    In a
    [...]
    court
    room Wednesday, Jeff Pearcy faced charges of accessory after the fact
    in connection with Bobo’s death because of an alleged video.
    [...]
    Pearcy
    “had shown a visual recording on an electronic device to an individual.
    According to the witness, this visual recording shows information that
    will prove to be beneficial in the prosecution of a current ongoing
    investigation being conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.”

    Investigators
    believe whatever is on the video could help them solve the Bobo murder
    case. The problem, according to investigators, is the people who have
    the video refuse to hand it over.

    Pearcy
    and his step-brother Mark Pearcy both face charges from the TBI in
    connection with the case. Both are charged with tampering with evidence
    and accessory after the fact.

    The same witness who saw the video believes Mark Pearcy’s voice is recorded on the video
    [...]
    the TBI searched Mark Pearcy’s property last week.

    TBI investigators said the Pearcys are refusing to hand over the video, which Jeff Pearcy’s attorney disputes.

    Jeff
    Pearcy has a couple of prior driving offenses on his record. He’s also
    been arrested in the past for contributing to the delinquency of a
    minor.

    Mark Pearcy’s criminal history is considerably longer, including vandalism, unlawful gun possession and statutory rape.

    At age 24, Mark Pearcy pleaded guilty to having sex with a 14-year-old
    [....]
    on the state sex offender registry.

    It’s
    unclear why, after three years, this alleged video is now being
    acknowledged. It’s also not known if the Pearcys knew Zachary Adams and
    Jason Autry, who have already been charged with kidnapping and murder in
    connection with Bobo’s disappearance
    [...]
    Both
    Mark and Jeff Pearcy have pleaded not guilty and both have bonded out
    of jail. Jeff Pearcy has to wear an ankle monitoring system while out on
    bond. His bond was set at $25,000.

    Jeff Pearcy’s family reacted as they left the court room
    “My daddy is innocent,” shouted his daughter to reporters outside the court house.
    [...]
    Jeff Pearcy is believed to have possession of the recording or knows where it is,
    [...]
    Mark Pearcy will be in court on Monday.

    Investigators aren’t revealing any more details at this time.

    Witness swears she saw murder victim Holly Bobo tied up, crying in cell phone video: report
    Brothers
    Jeff and Mark Pearcy have been accused of having access to a video of
    the Tennessee woman’s assault and refusing to turn the material over to
    police — a charge both have denied. Sandra King, a friend of Jeff
    Pearcy’s, testified in court that she had briefly seen the cell phone
    video in May.

    More than three years after Holly Bobo was reportedly dragged away from
    her home by camouflaged kidnapper, a Tennessee woman claims she saw the
    20-year-old nursing student tied up and crying in a cell phone video.
    The accusations came from Sandra King, a friend of Jeff Pearcy, one of
    the men who is accused of hiding details about Bobo’s alleged kidnapping
    and murder
    [...]
    Pearcy was charged along with his brother Mark Pearcy for tampering
    with evidence and accessory after the fact in the Decatur County woman’s
    April 2011 disappearance .
    [...]
    Jeff Pearcy’s preliminary hearing on Tuesday, King insisted that
    her friend of 19 years had shown her a video that Mark took of Bobo’s
    sexual assault.
    “I seen a woman that was tied up that was crying,” Sandra King told the court. “She was blond. Yes, it looked like Holly Bobo.”
    [...]
    Henderson County judge who presided over the hearing ruled that
    there was enough evidence against Pearcy to send the case to a grand
    jury.
    But Jeff and Mark Pearcy have both maintained their innocence. Jeff
    blasted the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations for “gripping at
    straws,”
    [...]
    Jeff and his two sons lived with King from March to May this year. Jeff
    had hinted to her that he had video of murder suspect Zachary Adams
    having sex with Bobo.
    The 29-year-old Adams and his 39-year-old friend Jason Autry are
    currently sitting in jail for Bobo’s disappearance, facing charges of
    aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder.He (Jeffrey Pearcy) told me that Mark (Pearcy) had video of Zach (Adams) having sex with Holly Bobo,” King recalled in court.
    “Jeff would never life to me,”
    [...]
    King then reportedly asked to see the video. She said she saw the front
    of Adams “at a glance.” A blond woman in the video had her hands tied
    up over her head.
    King said she could identify Bobo and Adams because of images she’s seen of them on the news.
    She reportedly watched just about 30 to 45 seconds before turning away.
    She asked Jeff to turn the video off. It was the last time she saw the
    video or the cell phone.
    “I knew what he was fixing to do; I did not want to see,”
    [...]
    King then waited a few weeks before informing the Tennessee Bureau of
    Investigation because she was worried about the fate of Jeff’s two
    children.
    [..]
    contacting the authorities, TBI special agents coaxed her through a recorded phone call with Jeff Pearcy.
    “I said, ‘That video of Holly, if it had been you, I would have watched it,'” she told Pearcy during the call.
    Jeff replied, “I know.”
    [...]
    Jeff’s lawyer revealed that his client has an ex-wife named
    Holly — and questioned whether Jeff was referring to her during the
    recorded call.
    King replied that she’s “100% sure it’s Holly Bobo.”
    “His ex-wife does not have blond hair,” she said. “I never seen a video of his wife.”
    Jeff maintains his innocence and denies knowing about a video of Bobo
    or his ex-wife tied up. He says the call was made while he was driving
    in a car with the windows down, so he could “barely understand” what
    King was saying.
    “I haven’t seen a video. No one has seen this video that anyone is talking about,” Jeff told
    [...]
    Investigators have yet to see the alleged recording of Bobo’s assault.
    TBI special agent Brent Booth says that he is waiting for an access code
    from Apple so that he get into Mark Pearcy’s cell phone.
    Jeff further denies knowing Zachary Adams or Jason Autry.
    [...]
    Bobo’s body has never been found.
