Bring Holly Bobo home safe
Please, if anyone here knows Holly and or her family, I pray that you care enough about them to NOT post any personal info on this page to a complete stranger. Any one posting and asking for personal information is going to be banned. And another thing. Her NAME is "Holly".. NOT "Baby Girl"...

Hmmm...that phony guy had me freaking at his use of "Baby Girl"...

Around these parts no one but her mother and father have that right unless it's possibly a husband after about 30 years of marriage and even then the husband wouldn't probably say it in front of her parents!

It's just a Southern "thang"...and it is offensive as it is considered to be usurping parental endearments. One of our best and worst attributes in the rural South is taking things literally. Some wrongly see it as being a symptom of seeming uneducated; others realize that we expect a person to say what they mean and mean what they say. It relates back to that whole concept of your word being your bond.

Old-fashioned values are still the norm in the rural South. I really couldn't tell you if it's different in the larger cities because I'm much more familiar with the towns of 5000 or less. (Shoot, when most of us go off to college, our campus has a larger population than our entire town.) I think that's one reason mainstream media has so misunderstood the area's protectiveness of the family. In a small town, if you don't know someone personally, someone in your family most likely does. That's why this abduction of Holly has seemed so personal to everyone and they've circled the wagons to minister to Holly's family.

What I am having trouble understanding in some part, however, is if there really is a family out there who knows one of theirs is involved in this abduction. Family honor and integrity is of major importance around here. I realize that this will be a black eye on the family but as time progresses and those who may know are not forthcoming, they are contributing to the dishonor and tarnish on the family name. It's time to do the honorable thing and if they can't persuade that family member to surrender, then they need to follow their own conscience. I cannot believe their inner voices of right and wrong are silent.

*****

(Addressing this to you in the hope you are reading... You've been told all your life that when you know right from wrong and choose to do wrong, it is sin.  You do know the right thing to do.  Just do it!  Let others sort it out...you can't undo what was done but you can start to set it right. Family loyalty should not override what you know is the right thing to do. Unload that burden by calling and telling what you know. You know exactly what you should do so quit weighing the risk and just do what's right. I know you must feel conflicted but deep in your soul, you know you need to share what you know. Reach deep, find the courage, and make that call.)

*****

Capp, I really enjoyed your description of the folks' reaction to the woman on the bus who mentioned the ransom money.  I can absolutely picture it...LOL.  All I can wonder is if she's from "these parts..."  First of all, it's often considered bad taste to discuss money period but when it's discussed in relation to someone's loved one, those words are practically a call to arms!  Plus, I'm sure they found it quite offensive that anyone would mention money while on a mission of compassion.  Contrary to what many believe, there really are things that money can't buy and one of those things is compassion and doing the right thing. When people around here say, "You couldn't pay me to...." it often literally means that they will do it for you but would never in a lifetime do it for hire. In other words, no amount of money would be enough but they do it out of simple human kindness.

O Toy you have no idea!  I seriously thought she was going to get torn from limb to limb & tossed outta the bus!   As many know by now, I'm a Jersey girl that moved down south a few years ago & truthfully my moral compass is better suited here.  I was right there with them & they got a lesson in a few choice words I spoke in Italian, it provided some much needed humor in a rather few tense moments.

I enjoy your posts about southern living so much & they are so greatly appreciated.   I am glad you discussed the "babygirl" reference, just by that alone I put a red flag on this @$$hat we are all speaking about tonight.   I call my daughter that all the time & often refer to her as such but I consider that my "honor," and certainly not for a stranger to refer to her as.   Now, if I'm talking about a child who is of toddler age or less I might refer to that child as a baby girl such as I often did when discussing Caylee Marie BUT only meant to denote her age versus a term of endearment that wasn't mine to state.    Incidentally, within my community & the one I had the pleasure of lending a hand to this weekend I gotta say the hospitality & general goodness in so many is a blessing to witness especially when some of us deal with the muck of society so often.

Search For Whitney Duncan's Missing Cousin Turns Up Evidence
First Posted: 04/25/11 04:17 PM ET Updated: 04/25/11 04:17 PM ET

Authorities in west Tennessee are examining potential evidence in the search for Holly Bobo, the 20-year-old cousin of country music star Whitney Duncan. The young nursing student has been missing since she was abducted from outside her home earlier this month, police said.

"We have taken in hundreds of pieces of possible evidence, so we are sorting through it to see if it is related to Holly or not," Kristin Helm, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, told The Huffington Post.

On Sunday, investigators announced they had found a "significant" item. Volunteers reportedly told Fox 13's Earle Farrell the significant piece of evidence is a cell phone. Helm declined to comment and would only say that there are "lots of rumors and speculation."

Capp's note:

Volunteers tell FOX13's Earle Farrell significant piece eevidence in Holly Bobo case is cell phone. Earle waiting to hear from authorities.

Bobo was last seen on April 13 outside her family's house in Darden, a small community about 100 miles northeast of Memphis. A neighbor called 911 when she heard a woman screaming shortly after 7:30 a.m. Bobo's 25-year-old brother, who was inside the house at the time, also called 911.
 ::snipping2::
ccording to police, Bobo's brother said he saw her being led away from the home by a man dressed in camouflage, into a nearby wooded area. He said he initially thought it was her boyfriend, but became concerned when he noticed blood on the ground outside the residence.

Local and state law enforcement authorities have coordinated massive search efforts behind Bobo's home and throughout the surrounding area. In the days following her disappearance, investigators found what they described as a vital clue in her abduction.    Capp's note:  behind Bobo's home is exactly where our crew was Saturday
 ::snipping2::
According to police, Bobo's boyfriend and family members are cooperating with the investigation. None of them have been named suspects or persons of interest in the case.

Whitney Duncan has been posting regular messages about her cousin's disappearance to various social networking websites and has also joined in several foot searches.

"Out searching for Holly. Keep the prayers going up please," Duncan tweeted on Saturday.

Capp's note:  Im posting what she said

Whitney Duncan
I've done 1 interview & only because I was told it might help get the word out about Holly, and I was such an emotional wreck after it, that I said I would not do any more. So to all the people that have negative things to say about anyone in my family, God will deal with you. Unfortunately you are making this even harder on a family that is suffering. To the people that pray and help, thank you so much.

I'm still working my way through the first thread, but I wanted to ask  .........

Does anyone know where Holly was in her nursing program? Given her age, I'd guess she was a Junior?

I know it's been speculated that someone was stalking her, and I saw where some have said maybe it was someone who knew her from school. I'm wondering if it was a patient or client she encountered during her clinicals or during a community rotation.

Law enforcement officials are asking volunteers to hold off in their search for Holly Bobo until a severe weather system leaves the area this week.

Volunteers are being asked to return to Decatur County Thursday if the 20-year-old missing nursing student is not found by then. Severe storms expected to be in the area today and tomorrow will keep volunteers from looking for Bobo.

"We don't want to put (the volunteers) at risk," said Tennessee Highway Patrol Lt. Brad Wilbanks, "Law enforcement will still be around to respond to anything we find as it comes up."

Bill Way is on the radio right now talking about it. 101.5 of www.WNWS.com

He can't give any details, but he has a very credible source, and he believes that it is going to come to an end really soon. He says he will tell us everything he knows when he can, but that nothing can be released as of this time. He says that he thought about sharing what he knew on the radio, but that he doesn't want to risk his reputation when all the facts may not be totally true. He is now on the phone with the sheriff about storm damage, but I'm sure someone else will call in asking about it.

If you think back to last Monday, the rumor that was started involved 3 guys too. I just wonder, how much of that story was true?

Good morning

I would ignore this altogether at this point because it would have broke this morning if there was any merit to it.   IMHO, there is no way from when this was initially posted to now that the TBI would have put off speaking to a possible proof of life to some degree knowing how the community has pulled together to find her with that hope.

My area and a bit north of me got thru the first wave of storms with more expected later today.   It looks like volunteer ground searches are being postponed until Thursday, reported up to this minute.   The investigation continues.

This Bill on the radio just said "the detailed levels by so many positions of authority" makes it believable & he cant be the only one that was told this.   He said that he's got to believe that his sources are credible but until the TBI and other LE comes forward he's not going to spread it.

I pray he's right but as I said last night if he's spread this and it turns out to be totally unfounded & he put it on the air wave, I sure as heck would not want to be him.

The new justification found during a hunt for Holly Bobo was her dungeon phone, found roadside on Hwy. 69.

Although law coercion are not divulgence any information concerning a “significant” object found during Sunday’s search, a member of a hunt teams has suggested to a author that a object was Holly’s dungeon phone, located on side of a highway on Hwy. 69 in Parsons, circuitously Kolpack, a circuitously factory, and a Tennessee Technology Center, where Holly was attending school. Volunteers from a hunt parties also associated to Fox 13′s Eearle Farrell that a object was Holly’s dungeon phone.

My take on this is that someone was copying it to post and they probably aren't American and just subbed some of their words or that is the way it may have translated from an article posted in another language.  I've seen it before.

Hi Capp - I have been following your posts on Holly.  Thanks for your selflessness on helping with the search.

What purpose would it serve for authorities to keep the public in the dark, if she has been found or located?  This guy (on the radio) even said other rumors on his show about where she might be.

You don't have to answer what their purpose would be, but can you even think of a purpose as to why the public would not be told she was found?

Thanks again for your service and opinions, I like reading your posts.

Bill Way is not an anonymous poster.  From what little I have read he is a respected public figure.  What would this guy have to gain by undermining the words of TBI spokesperson in press conference ... words that imply a completely difference account encompassing the disappearance of Holly Bobo.

I don't know what to think.  This is crazy.

I really have no clue. I'll give you the short story. The rumor was that she had been found in a cabin in Natchez Trace last Monday, 4/11. They found this out because someone came forward that knew about it and said that if LE would keep him from getting into trouble that he would tell them who the 3 guys were. Supposedly, they rescued Holly, airlifted her to Vandy, and are now trying to piece together enough to arrest the 3 guys. Remember, this was just a RUMOR, even though several people at the fairgrounds swear that they saw the helicopter fly over....now 3 guys have been mentioned again by Bill Way. As for who the guys are, I have no idea. Pretty far fetched in my opinion, but I trust Bill Way.

Since 4/11, Im saying NO WAY....THREE GUYS, finding that totally hard to believe.   

Caller on right now to Bill on the radio...she's giving him a piece of her mind!  She is stating that he is contributing to rumors & that his post was "tacky."   When confronted he chalked it up to possible rumors going around.  The caller cornered him about stating that he heard this from LE & he was like "well, yea yup" but then passed it off as we'll have to wait and see.

The last caller on Bill Way's show called him out on why he has said this "rumor".  He shuffled around the calling out but still stands by what he has been told.  Yes, another caller on that show said they had heard she was at Vandy hospital.  He did not deny that either.  The only scenario I can think of to keep hush on her whereabouts, if she has been located, is to catch or get something on the perps.  Interesting to me though is why the searches still?  Looking for clues? 

Anyone that has searched, did they tell you to look for clues or Holly herself.

her being found and at vandy hospital doesn't really jive with the cell phone being found, and a tip called into her mother, and pretty much everything else we know about this case so far if she was found already.  i'm praying she has been found but i don't think le would mislead the volunteers like that and people out searching on easter sunday, etc.. if she had already been found

Cad, that post on topic states 4/11 - that was prior to her abduction!  We have to remember that a neighbor (house not real close to Bobo property) also called 911 & heard screams.   I am finding it totally outrageous that LE would choose to keep her recovery & safety secret for more than a 24 hour period much less longer.

I wish it to be true & I'll be elated but I'd imagine I would not be the only one rather ticked off when the rejoicing wore off.    Even to catch perps, I cannot fathom keeping a victim's return a secret for two weeks.  Thousands have literally wrenched their bodies looking for her & many very worried about her well-being...it just doesnt seem conceivable & I have NEVER heard of a case where anything like that case scenario happened over 24 hours, if ever.

Someone asked a question to me about what we were told....I cannot say precisely but we were given detailed instructions what to look for that may have belonged to Holly.   The only items that have been reported on thru the media is a pink shirt & jeans (I know the brand) but there was a list of items.   It should be also noted that I heard NOTHING of this rumor on the ground & I spoke to many while there.

The cell phone suddenly appearing along side of the road is hopeful news to me....it also means someone either kept the cell phone charged and off or recharged it..a week is a long time for any cell phone to hold a charge....I am thinking the call to Holly's mother came on that cell phone?  I am also thinking that Holly's family's phones are tapped..wouldn't that be usual in a case of a missing person with a reward of $80,000?  I think the only safe way to have made that call was from Holly's own phone. Whoever has Holly is playing with the police now....who has a grudge like that to taunt the cops?..JMHO

Stormy weather to hamper Holly Bobo search efforts
Posted by Camille Mann

Law enforement officers are asking volunteers to return to Decatur County Thursday if Bobo still hasn't been found. Severe storms expected to be in the area Tuesday and Wednesday, reports the Sun.

 ::snipping2::

While police initially believed an abductor dragged Bobo, 20, away as she left for school last Wednesday, investigators now suspect it was a community member in camouflage who led Bobo into the woods near her home.

Authorities have refused to rule out anyone in the community of Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis, as a potential suspect.

IF Bill Way's words reflect any truth ... could the orginal report regarding a home invasion ... regarding a violent abduction ... reflect the truth encompassing the disappearance of Holly Bobo?

This account would go a long way towards explaining ...

1.  The immediate presence of so many law enforcement agencies.
2.  Original reports that blood was found inside the home.
4.  The immediate ruling out of Clint as a person of interest.
5.  The low profile of Karen, Dana and Clint.

Home Invasion - Dragged Away

Tenn. Woman May Have Been Abducted in Home Invasion
Published April 14, 2011


PARSONS, Tenn. -- A 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion  Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home in the community of Darden in Decatur County and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said. Its violent crime response team was gathering evidence.

So Many Law Enforcement Agences

Holly Bobo Abduction: Week-in-review
Wed., April 13, Day 1: Recap from Decatur County Sheriff


<snipped>

There were questions as to why so many law enforcement agencies, including federal agents from the FBI and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), became involved in Holly’s case on day one. Sheriff Wyatt said they were taking every precaution that they knew to take.

“At this time,” he said, “whatever it might be, then that’s what we’re trying to prepare for.”

Not Forcefully Dragged

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

The officer said that neither Bobo's brother nor her boyfriend were suspects. "We are confident of that," he said.

But police have no leads to the identity of Bobo's abductor.

"There is not a person of interest at this time," he said.

IF the outcome reveals that any member of the Bobo family was involved and/or possessed knowledge regarding the happenings encompassing the disappearance of Holly and ... IF in the process of elimination famly members were not requested to submit to a polygraphy ... the implication is that the well-being of searchers was not a primary concern.

Considering the changing stories ... it does not make sense that those closest to Holly ... it does not make sense the only witness to the "alleged" abduction and ... it does not make sense the person originally implicated as the abductor .. in the process of elimination ... prior to conducting these massive searchers ... were not polygraphed.

Maybe family members and the "boyfriend" were immediately polygraphed.  Maybe that is the foundation behind Spokesperson Mehr's words of exoneration in his April 15th press conference.  I hope so.

KEVIN BROMLEY, FAMILY SPOKESPERSON: I don`t know that to be sure. Has the investigators said anything about that?

NORVILLE: Well, this is a family member who has told us, and we`re trying to confirm that with you as the family spokesperson.

BROMLEY: Right. I don`t know that to be factual. That would be something you`d have to talk with the investigators about.

SSearch for Holly Bobo Focuses on Suspect
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 1:33 PM


Decatur County, TN (Parsons, TN) - The search for Holly Bobo may focus more intently on finding a suspect related to the young woman's disappearance, according to TBI spokesperson Kristen Helms.

When asked if she [Helms] believed that investigators were closer to finding Bobo this week than in the previous week, Helms stated that the investigation has "become more narrowed" and that officials are intently focusing more on finding a potential suspect in the 20 year old's disappearance.

The Bureau is still actively seeking information from anyone in the community or region that will bring them closer to finding Holly Bobo, or the person responsible for her disappearance.

<snipped>

Media reports had linked the newest item to a phone tip, but Helms said during a phone conversation that it was her understanding that the new item had been recovered during the search effort.

When asked about the nature of blood evidence recovered initially at Holly Bobo's home, the TBI spokeswoman also declined comment on the nature of forensic findings, and even declined to comment on whether the blood was animal or human.

Search For Whitney Duncan's Missing Cousin Turns Up Evidence
First Posted: 04/25/11 04:17 PM ET Updated: 04/25/11 04:17 PM ET

Authorities in west Tennessee are examining potential evidence in the search for Holly Bobo, the 20-year-old cousin of country music star Whitney Duncan. The young nursing student has been missing since she was abducted from outside her home earlier this month, police said.

"We have taken in hundreds of pieces of possible evidence, so we are sorting through it to see if it is related to Holly or not," Kristin Helm, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, told The Huffington Post.

On Sunday, investigators announced they had found a "significant" item. Volunteers reportedly told Fox 13's Earle Farrell the significant piece of evidence is a cell phone. Helm declined to comment and would only say that there are "lots of rumors and speculation."

Capp's note:

GCoy1 Greg Coy
Volunteers tell FOX13's Earle Farrell significant piece eevidence in Holly Bobo case is cell phone. Earle waiting to hear from authorities.
13 hours ago
https://twitter.com/#!/GCoy1


Bobo was last seen on April 13 outside her family's house in Darden, a small community about 100 miles northeast of Memphis. A neighbor called 911 when she heard a woman screaming shortly after 7:30 a.m. Bobo's 25-year-old brother, who was inside the house at the time, also called 911.
 
ccording to police, Bobo's brother said he saw her being led away from the home by a man dressed in camouflage, into a nearby wooded area. He said he initially thought it was her boyfriend, but became concerned when he noticed blood on the ground outside the residence.

Local and state law enforcement authorities have coordinated massive search efforts behind Bobo's home and throughout the surrounding area. In the days following her disappearance, investigators found what they described as a vital clue in her abduction.    Capp's note:  behind Bobo's home is exactly where our crew was Saturday
 
According to police, Bobo's boyfriend and family members are cooperating with the investigation. None of them have been named suspects or persons of interest in the case.

Whitney Duncan has been posting regular messages about her cousin's disappearance to various social networking websites and has also joined in several foot searches.

"Out searching for Holly. Keep the prayers going up please," Duncan tweeted on Saturday.

Capp's note:  Im posting what she said

Whitney Duncan
I've done 1 interview & only because I was told it might help get the word out about Holly, and I was such an emotional wreck after it, that I said I would not do any more. So to all the people that have negative things to say about anyone in my family, God will deal with you. Unfortunately you are making this even harder on a family that is suffering. To the people that pray and help, thank you so much.

I will also reiterate that I feel that it is highly inappropriate for any volunteer to speak to the media about potential evidence being found, it is not their job to disseminate information & speaking from an ethical point of view, personally I would never divulge such information prior to LE speaking to it first as to not compromise an active criminal investigation.

This is not to say it includes any other information that was discussed yesterday as to who received a phone call, its a separate point.

Police say Holly Bobo investigation narrowing
Posted by Kevin Hayes

(CBS/WREG/AP) PARSONS, Tenn. - Tennessee law enforcement officials say that the search for missing nursing student Holly Bobo is narrowing, as they begin the process of identifying persons of interest in the case.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said many possibilities have been ruled out, and that the focus of the investigation and search is still on the area surrounding the small community of Darden, where Bobo lives with her parents and brother.

There are two points to make here:

1)  It is being said that volunteer searchers told Earle Farrell of Fox13 what was found independent of who received a reported phone call
2)  It is being said that Karen Bobo received a phone call independent of what a volunteer/searcher(s) may have told a Fox13 reporter

Being familiar with the area, certainly the items have been randomly tossed there, by someone who lives there. You can't link all the items to a direction. It's a circle, if you're familiar with the back roads. Most of the popular there is employed on the hwy the cell was found, but is the main route to the interstate.

Welcome Southrah

I do have to say that what you stated is in direct contradiction to what I know to be taking place, do you care to expound further?   There was no presser yesterday or today & they are not at the fairgrounds to give briefings daily.   The LE agencies have their command elsewhere for a few days now.

snipped..

The new justification found during a hunt for Holly Bobo was her dungeon phone, found roadside on Hwy. 69.

Although law coercion are not divulgence any information concerning a “significant” object found during Sunday’s search, a member of a hunt teams has suggested to a author that a object was Holly’s dungeon phone, located on side of a highway on Hwy. 69 in Parsons, circuitously Kolpack, a circuitously factory, and a Tennessee Technology Center, where Holly was attending school. Volunteers from a hunt parties also associated to Fox 13′s Eearle Farrell that a object was Holly’s dungeon phone.

BBM - I may be way behind here but what is a "dungeon phone"?

This is apparently a translated version of this story. The original is not written this way. Its at http://www.suite101.com/content/missing-holly-bobo-update-cell-phone-found-roadside-a367810.

No, my ex-husband. I live in the next large town over. Been afraid to let my teen girls visit since this happened. If you knew how small this town is, it's very scary. It's definitely someone among them, and everyone knows everyone. He said they even think it could be one of the searches who placed the items, because they had already searched the area.

That's what he said their search team was told yesterday afternoon. Of course, I see different being said in news online. But, he also said there were so many rumors and they aren't being told much that they have to get a lot of their information from the news too, except what that know for sure among each other.

Thank you everyone for all the welcomes. Yes, if they really found her cell phone where they say yesterday, because it and the lunch purse are so far apart, and wouldn't be in line with an exit.

I think surely they would continue to use the volunteers, that just what my ex-husband said his search team was told yesterday.

Clarify "they" please.   I too believe that one particular item were placed to throw off the investigation (possibly more) BUT I am in touch with people & was there this weekend so while that is a possibility it was not largely discussed by quite a few people I was in direct contact with & certainly not any LE we were in contact with during the course of our search.

Everyone feels that it is someone within the community but we have to be careful how things are stated because no one needs more rumors or misinformation.   Said respectfully.

If you called it in to TBI & people are aware of who this is then I'm pretty darn sure it would be being dealt with.   I'm sure you have the best of intentions but this is already causing much speculation.   You said you were not there but your husband witnessed this person searching specifically?

Well that sounds like a polite "Shut up". I'm sure my tip came in the day after her disappearance, along with hundreds of others. I'm not so confident it was dealt with. Decatur County is protective of their locals. It depends highly on who you are, whose son, grandson or brother you are and who you hunt and ride horses with, as to whether or not that lead went anyway.

If you don't want to hear it, I'll politely shut up, per your request. I thought this forum was here for information on Holly. I could be wrong. But, if I'm right... It certainly makes sense to me how the items were found where they were.

What? Do you actually think that wouldn't happen? Investigators usually know to look among people being most helpful. They do that to get the inside info on whether or not they're about to be caught.

Southrah - I think most members here know to take most information outside of LE cautiously.  There have been rumors as you know.  Now a local radio guy is saying he's heard from a reputable source that Holly is alive.  We all hope that is true but won't believe it until we hear something official.

I've also hear the rumor that she was alive.

Then another claims to have actually seen her after the rescue. I don't believe it to be true. They continued to have people searching for days after that.

The release of Clint's 911 call would put to rest the questions that are abounding regarding the changing stories ... changing stories which challenges the integrity of Holly's brother.  It would then be know once and for all IF Clint changed his original account.

If Clint's orginal account of what he witnessed on the morning of April 13th changed from what he reported to 911 ... I believe this could be considered a giant waving red flag.

If Clint's orginal account did not change ... investigation spokespersons must shoulder the blame in regards to the suspicion that has been cast on Holly's brother.

Why is it that in missing person cases which have been discussed on this site ... some original 911 calls are released while others are not?

Home Invasion - Dragged Away

Tenn. Woman May Have Been Abducted in Home Invasion
Published April 14, 2011


PARSONS, Tenn. -- A 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home in the community of Darden in Decatur County and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said. Its violent crime response team was gathering evidence.

Not Forcefully Dragged

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

Welcome to SM and thanks for the feedback! Are you from Jax or Lexington by chance? I lived in Jax for many yrs and then Collierville until 3 yrs ago....we were in Parsons every weekend at the TN river, and sometimes @ Beech Lake. The amount of brush and areas of water including all the coves at the river (and close access to I-40) worried me from day one, I guess the river worse than anything as I know how dense that area, and zillions of coves can be :(

 ::MonkeyNoNo:: I worry if that is the case, she may never be found.......way too much territory and hidden niches, don't even get me started on the caves. I know when we stayed at the cabin by ourselves since it was a huge house, 3 floors and 7 bedrooms we were scared to death since if you screamed nobody would hear you so we took a gun and locked even the bedroom door, when we had the house packed we were a bit less uptight (of course we were also usually drinking more too so that may have had something to do with it). I remember one of the coves with a waterfall and when we'd climb up to jump off, I was astonished at how deep and thick the woods were so I never wandered for fear of getting lost.

Enjoy the BB game, Islandmonkey.  Thanks for your insights about the area.

I've also hear the rumor that she was alive. It seems to be coming from some of the searchers who say the rescue squad was dispatched during the searches a few days ago and they believed it was because she was found. Then another claims to have actually seen her after the rescue. I don't believe it to be true. They continued to have people searching for days after that.

Thanks Southrah.  I don't believe it either, there's no way they would have volunteers out there searching if she had been found.

I concur with Klaas.  Also,  I didnt hear a word of that while searching, no speculation of that whatsoever.  The rumor itself stemmed from someone stating she was airlifted on 4/11, which is PRIOR to her abduction....I dont give the rumor itself any merit whatsoever due to the fact that it is inconceivable that the TBI and many other LE agencies involved in this case would keep her whereabouts a secret for two weeks.

The release of Clint's 911 call would put to rest the questions that are abounding regarding the changing stories ... changing stories which challenges the integrity of Holly's brother.  It would then be know once and for all IF Clint changed his original account.

If Clint's orginal account of what he witnessed on the morning of April 13th changed from what he reported to 911 ... I believe this could be considered a giant waving red flag.

If Clint's orginal account did not change ... investigation spokespersons must shoulder the blame in regards to the suspicion that has been cast on Holly's brother.

Why is it that in missing person cases which have been discussed on this site ... some original 911 calls are released while others are not?

Its a dang shame this family, especially Clint have got to endure this ongoing speculation but releasing a 911 call or a poly is not the only thing that would end it totally for some, that seems to be rather obvious.     There has to be a reason why neither has been released officially, as its been discussed before.  Every case is different to some degree.   One of those reasons should be extremely obvious.   I do not agree that the TBI or LE should shoulder any blame whatsoever in why Clint has to endure what some of the public is bound and determined to cast upon him.   The TBI and all LE agencies working this criminal investigation are being diligent & prudent.  The reason its not being discussed is apprehending the responsible party & finding Holly takes precedent over dealing with speculation, rumors & the public's anxiousness in wanting to know everything, not to mention there are always strategic decisions to be made in each case so yes what is shared may differ minimally or greatly without it being considered unusual or justifies criticism.

Home Invasion - Dragged Away

Tenn. Woman May Have Been Abducted in Home Invasion
Published April 14, 2011


PARSONS, Tenn. -- A 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home in the community of Darden in Decatur County and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said. Its violent crime response team was gathering evidence.

Not Forcefully Dragged

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

Well that sounds like a polite "Shut up". I'm sure my tip came in the day after her disappearance, along with hundreds of others. I'm not so confident it was dealt with. Decatur County is protective of their locals. It depends highly on who you are, whose son, grandson or brother you are and who you hunt and ride horses with, as to whether or not that lead went anyway.

If you don't want to hear it, I'll politely shut up, per your request. I thought this forum was here for information on Holly. I could be wrong. But, if I'm right... It certainly makes sense to me how the items were found where they were.

..
Well, it would make sense that if almost everyone is searching that the perp could be one of them. It would not surprise me if this is true.
I think LE is trying not to tip their hand. They are looking for an alive Holly.

Of course its possible, but witnessing what I have I dont see how that would continue even if initially attempted considering it would be visible to many that would recognize an individual in that community.   Everyone that goes out on a search signs in to the fairgrounds & they must sign back out when they return...if anyone is out there unauthorized it will get snagged.

Janet, where you and I live ( Canada ) we would never hear a 911 call or a single peep from the RCMP or the local LE during an active on going investigation. There have been so many cases where we hear nothing from LE and then, suddenly there is an arrest and charges.
LE is saying as little as possible I think because they don't want their words or actions to cause Holly to be harmed any further.
I've been reading, not posting much, but the safety of Holly and the intergrity of the investigtion trumps my rights to know anything. What if something leaked out or was blurted out and Holly was harmed as a direct result of that?
I peek in here and other places and like everyone else, I want Holly found alive and I want whoever is responsib;e to be dealt with.

Holly Bobo is my focus.  This implies that I am on a quest for answers clarifying what appears ... according to investigation spokespersons ... to be changing stories coming from the ONE witness who claims to have observed Holly's alleged abduction.

If this is a non-issue to some ... so be it.  I wish I could move on but ... I cannot.

However ... on a forum ... agreeing to disagree is where it is at until the outcome is revealed.

Search for Holly Bobo Focuses on Suspect
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 1:33 PM


Decatur County, TN (Parsons, TN) - The search for Holly Bobo may focus more intently on finding a suspect related to the young woman's disappearance, according to TBI spokesperson Kristen Helms.

When asked if she [Helms] believed that investigators were closer to finding Bobo this week than in the previous week, Helms stated that the investigation has "become more narrowed" and that officials are intently focusing more on finding a potential suspect in the 20 year old's disappearance.

Why hasn't the parents been on tv pleading for her return? Id be on tv everyday!!!

An analogy ... Tamikosmom's thinking process ...

If investigators revealed that the person who claimed to have witnessed the abduction of my precious granddaughter had substantially changed his account which had been related to a 911 operator following the incident ... justice for my granddaughter would dictate that this guy would not be receiving an automatic pass from Mama.  Clarifying answers would have to be forthcoming.

There was only one alleged witness to the abduction of Holly Bobo.  There should be only one truth ... the truth related to the 911 operator by Clint Bobo immediately following the incident.

Investigators did not witness the abduction of Holly Bobo.  There is no way that they or anybody else would have the ability to change Clint's story.

He lives with his family.

My cousin Clint is NOT a suspect. People are basing that off of a false report and I'm sick of it. The family is hurting enough as is & this only adds to the pain. He loves his sister more than anything. So people that says the story is weird or strange is reading the WRONG story.  April 17 at 11:05pm....Whitney Duncan

To your question regarding searchers, An individual must register at the fairgrounds, give them certain ID & then they stamp your hand.  You are then instructed that you must sign back out at the fairgrounds or there will be a search team out looking for anyone that doesn't.

Janet - totally agree...there should only be "one" truth.

"Who" changed the truth?  Clint or someone else?

Also, I'm getting a hinky feeling about the lunch purse being found off the road and the telephone being found in the open  - both items seemed to have been just "tossed".  Then  phone call to Holly's mom and not LE about Holly's phone.  All very odd.

The more rational thing to do would NOT be to toss evidence out in the open, but to keep it all with Holly or get rid of the items in such a manner that they're not out in the open..obviously...wanting someone to find the items.

There's more to this, IMO....

It's been extremely stormy in west TN through the night with no improvement expected until tomorrow (and even then flash flooding is expected from all the rain).

I haven't been able to find any news today but I did stumble upon some human interest type stories.  It's the type of memories of better times that folks share with each other. Some of you may gain enjoy getting a more close and personable picture.

I'm referring to the discussion page of this particular facebook set up for Holly.  I'd never even noticed it existed until this morning.

Weather Interrupts Search for Holly
4/27/11
The search for missing nursing student Holly Bobo intensified over the weekend but was soon halted as severe weather entered the area Monday.
Authorities say an item believed to belong to Bobo was located Sunday, though investigators will not reveal what the item is or how it is linked to the case. The discovery renewed search efforts late Sunday, when earlier in the day volunteers announced it would likely be the last day of organized searching.

Well, it was a rough night into the AM here.  We've had 4 tornado warnings, flash floods & severe boom-booms within a day & about 4AM it got downright scary, we lost power & satellite for a few hours.   I'm not in the clear yet, in a watch box as we speak & a possibility of another warning going up in the next hour or so.   The only damage I can see on my property is a piece of roof gutter broke off, several tree limbs down & garbage can type stuff flown about.   I know Decatur County got a good bit of this storm front as well.

Puzzler, "the more to this" could be as simple as its being done by someone that doesnt follow crime cases like we all do & one that is not thinking rationally, possibly young OR it could be a planned diversion, albeit that it doesnt make sense to many of us.   Obviously, I'm aware of a few details as I've mentioned but that's not to say that I have all the answers but I will say this I have no reason to suspect that Holly's brother is involved whatsoever.    This is a decent, loving family with no history of dysfunction...no one is uttering an unkind word about any of them within that entire community, no gossip of such at all.   The outpouring of the community serves as a large indicator of that & that is what I experienced while there FWIW.

Since we know where that info came from I will go with that it indeed took place.   That being said, I think it may be someone connected to and/or has knowledge of the person responsible that is providing information in the hopes that this person gets apprehended without incident.    Please do not take this as fact since I've stated that I know a few things but I'm leaning in that direction based on what has been released & the little bit I've ascertained from being on the ground speaking to quite a few people.  Of course, that can shift if facts come to light otherwise but that is my opinion at the moment.

Well that sounds like a polite "Shut up". I'm sure my tip came in the day after her disappearance, along with hundreds of others. I'm not so confident it was dealt with. Decatur County is protective of their locals. It depends highly on who you are, whose son, grandson or brother you are and who you hunt and ride horses with, as to whether or not that lead went anyway.

If you don't want to hear it, I'll politely shut up, per your request. I thought this forum was here for information on Holly. I could be wrong. But, if I'm right... It certainly makes sense to me how the items were found where they were.

..
Well, it would make sense that if almost everyone is searching that the perp could be one of them. It would not surprise me if this is true.
I think LE is trying not to tip their hand. They are looking for an alive Holly.
And welcome.

Of course its possible, but witnessing what I have I dont see how that would continue even if initially attempted considering it would be visible to many that would recognize an individual in that community.   Everyone that goes out on a search signs in to the fairgrounds & they must sign back out when they return...if anyone is out there unauthorized it will get snagged.

You're not getting it. He is registered. He's a member of the community. He knows the father. He rides horses and hunts among them. He's well known, as is everyone in a small town. There is nothing odd that would stand out about him being there. (And, it wouldn't be odd to any of them for the perp, who is a member of the community) to be among them.

You are getting very close to causing way too much speculation about a particular individual that may or may not have anything to do with this nor has been officially named as a person of interest.   The person who is responsible for this is still at large, please take the TBI and other LE agencies lead on this and be cautious in what you say.   If you are right in your assumption kudos to you but please be aware that finding Holly & apprehending the responsible person is a far cry more important than any one of us being right.

Because LE is holding everything so close, I suspect they know a lot more than they're letting on, and I trust that with the TBI also being involved, that even though it's a closeknit, small town, they won't protect anyone and will find whoever did this and bring them to justice. Even *if* that someone is among the searchers, they can't just arrest someone because they think it's them. They need more than just a hunch. They need enough proof to hold them, lest they risk ruining their case. While I realize it's possible for LE to botch things, I wouldn't just automatically assume they have.

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

Rumors Holly was found

There have been online rumors that Holly has been found.

Helm said, “To my knowledge, Holly has not been found. We don’t have information indicating she is either alive or dead.”

Helm said Tuesday afternoon, “We have no new developments to report on today.

“TBI is still following leads on her [Holly’s] case.

“Volunteer search will continue if and when needed.

“A news release will be issued by TBI when we have new information to release," Helm said.

Police search for Holly Bobo continues in spite of weather

"We don't want to put [volunteers] at risk," said Tennessee Highway Patrol Lt. Brad Wilbanks to the Jackson Sun, "Law enforcement will still be around to respond to anything we find as it comes up."

The paper reports that police were the only ones searching for Bobo yesterday and will continue to be the only ones searching today, because of a forecast of severe storms.

Authorities ask that volunteers return to Decatur County Thursday if Bobo still hasn't been found.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, searchers found an additional piece of evidence Friday that may pertain to Bobo, but they are not releasing what it is, reports Reuters.

The new clue was found along the road in the northern part of Decatur County, Tenn.

Police believe that whoever abducted Bobo is a hunter or someone familiar with the area near her home, which is surrounded by rugged woodlands.

Authorities have refused to rule out anyone in the community of Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis, as a potential suspect.

I disagree, she said "He knows the father. He rides horses and hunts among them. He's well known," and I'm saying that is more pointed towards a specific individual & NOT anything that has been said publicly.   If someone is turning in a phone, there is also a possibility that they are reading as well.

My being vested in this case has nothing to do with this point whatsoever, but my sound judgement is.

PS   My local CBS channel WREG at 5PM had a report and they spoke to the "significant finding" (reported cell) & went further to state that certain friends of Holly'S and Clint's fingerprints have been taken (some of which as I know it are the same).

I would venture a guess that most of the men in that area know each other, hunt together and ride together.  This community is very small.  I really don't think SouthRah is saying anything that's "bombshell" material.  Especially to those of us who've grown up in a similar community.  She's not saying what color hair this person has, or where he lives or what he drives.  She's really giving no identifiers at all, imo.  Most of the male population in that area would likely fit her description.

Were dogs used in the search?  I think I read somewhere that they followed her scent thru the woods and stopped at a roadway.  (Getting in a vehicle--idk.)  What about dogs searching where the items were discovered?  I gather from what has been suggestedc here that the itmes were thrown out, maybe from a car, or purposely placed.  But what if she was around where the items were located, wouldn't a canine pick up on her scent?

aren't k-9 dogs amazing??

Unless they're double headed and carrying an ax, the searcher is not going to stand out of the crowd. You surely can't assume "they are watching" any particular person, especially if they're close minded to anyone not fitting the description of whatever the obvious abductor would look like. lol

Now, if you cross the river on to the east, you may find some fitting that description, but probably not among the search team.

Of course its possible, but witnessing what I have I dont see how that would continue even if initially attempted considering it would be visible to many that would recognize an individual in that community.   Everyone that goes out on a search signs in to the fairgrounds & they must sign back out when they return...if anyone is out there unauthorized it will get snagged.

You're not getting it. He is registered. He's a member of the community. He knows the father. He rides horses and hunts among them. He's well known, as is everyone in a small town. There is nothing odd that would stand out about him being there. (And, it wouldn't be odd to any of them for the perp, who is a member of the community) to be among them.

Please do not take that tone with me & certainly do not presume what I do or do not know.  If that is the case as you put it, he's KNOWN which means they are watching.   

You are getting very close to causing way too much speculation about a particular individual that may or may not have anything to do with this nor has been officially named as a person of interest.   The person who is responsible for this is still at large, please take the TBI and other LE agencies lead on this and be cautious in what you say.   If you are right in your assumption kudos to you but please be aware that finding Holly & apprehending the responsible person is a far cry more important than any one of us being right.

You can save your breath correcting me with my tone. lol TBI asked that locals look among themselves for a reason. If everyone were to shut up, as you seem to prefer, and not address the possibilities, how in the world would they discover who took her?

Yes, they are asking for locals to look among themselves.   It seems you and are got off on the wrong foot but all I am is expressing is that you seem to have a specific person in mind & all Im saying is that should be discussed with the TBI and to proceed with caution as the wrong eyes may very well be reading....we all want this SOB caught.

No, I didnt take kindly to your "you're not getting it" comment but Im very tired from lack of sleep due to days of tornadic storms, the search this weekend & working on things regarding several cases (work) not just Holly's so I'm offering a truce in kindness.

Good night monkeys, I need some down time.

First, Welcome to the cage.  I appreciate a local's point of view.  We have moderators here and they'll let you know if you get out of line.  (Capp's not one).

Thanks O4Bull.

I believe the locations of the evidence further indicates a local, because the items weren't just tossed out on the way toward an exit from the county, in a straight hit, or even toward the river. The lunch purse was found in the most rural of areas, not on the way to anywhere. The cell was found on the Hwy that employs the majority of residents.

Prayers for Holly and her family.  I'm sure hoping she's alive, but I fear that's not the case.

No, I didn't necessarily think they were "placed" really. The lunch purse, I think just tossed out on a back road, not expecting it to be noticed. I wouldn't think they imagined it would get this kind of publicity. And, I think the same about the cell phone - just tossed and didn't think it would be noticed, and definitely not expecting such a search effort. Or, maybe because it's the main road, by the factory and other businesses, impossible to know how it got there. Not really a genius at work here.

I don't know the family myself. I've asked and been told the brother seems to be an honest guy, but not really a tough guy. (Don't mean any harm in saying that) It's just most of the men there are country and tough, or try hard to be.

As far as Bill Way, I don't think most of us really take him seriously. I don't anyway. If you listen to his show much, you'll see what I mean. lol I'm not surprised that he said that, but he is the kind that would discuss rumors and just some things most would disconnect a caller concerning. lol

I've heard the rumor. Believe it or not, a lot of the locals believe she was found days ago, but not sure enough to stop searching. I don't believe that at all. If she were airlifted, everyone in town would know it.

There is one hospital, which could nearly only perform a few stitches or cast a small broken bone. When they call for life flight, half the town comes to watch. Word travels fast. It takes a while. The helicopter comes and lands at the hospital, just down from the only red light in town. There would be no way to hide that.

Assuming it's true that there was a tip about the phone, I'd guess the abductor. I maybe reaching, and I don't understand exactly how a crazy mind works, but maybe they're feeling like they're so out of the radar, they're enjoying the attention the town is getting and something out of the ordinary going on.

Yep. And, her house is not on the way anywhere. Someone had to know her and where she lived (and TBI seems aware of that). It's really in the middle of nowhere. If it's not family, and doesn't seem to be, no way it's random.

From what I've been told, at least a year ago, she had a very protective dog - a collie. I know that doesn't sound scary, but I was told the dog would eat you alive if it didn't know you. I don't know if they family still has it, but...

This town is also not quick to turn on their own. So, my only trust in investigating is with TBI. The authorities there don't even have the knowledge or experience to deal with something like this, and depending on who's kin to who, they may not bother. So, it's great that TBI is involved.

I used to work in the system there, and have seen the primary investigator in action. It's sad.

Quite honestly, I truly believe the LE knows who did this and could be this person has lawyered up.  I think the family has had an inclination since the day Holly was taken.  Perhaps Holly had mentioned a particular individual in a negative way to her mom and dad.

I also think that LE is putting together the evidence but desperately trying to find Holly in order for justice to be served.

I've never seen a case where the entire town has remained tight lipped from day 1.  It's amazing yet it does show that there is enormous respect for many members of the town, including LE.

The parents have never been in the media pleading for the return of their daughter and that to me indicates they know who is responsible and that the perp is still in town and the reason they think Holly is not out of the locale.

The Holly Bobo Case - Was Holly Abducted?

1.  Were each of Clint Bobo's statements consistent?
 
2.  Were all of Clint Bobo's statements consistent with his 911 report?
 
3.  Did Clint Bobo submit to and pass a polygraph?


Considering there should be a solid foundation why the only person who claimed to witnessing an "alleged" abduction was given an official pass as a person of interest by a spokesperson for the investigation ... an official pass within TWO DAYS of Holly's disappearance ... I assume the answer is "Yes" to all three questions.
 
Considering there should be a solid foundation why massive searches are justified ... massive searches involving and putting at risk hundreds of volunteers ... I assume the answer is "Yes" to all three questions.

However ... if the above questions could not be answered in the affirmative ... it would make sense that investigators consider the possibility that an abduction never happened.
 
NOBODY should receive an automatic pass from investigators.  Justice for Holly Bobo demands accountability.

Then Jesus asked them, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine.  For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light.  Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.”

You're exactly right. And, they know better than TBI where to search there for a captive or a body. I know nobody wants to think that way, but the river makes for difficult place to find a body. But, like I said, the locals know where the caves are, and the other places someone would hide a person or body. They know which houses and cabins are vacant, etc.

Police search for Holly Bobo continues in spite of weather

(CBS/WREG/AP) PARSONS, Tenn. - Though police in Tennessee asked volunteers to hold off in their search for Holly Bobo due to severe storm conditions, investigators reportedly spent Tuesday following leads in the search for the missing 20-year-old nursing student in spite of the weather.

"We don't want to put [volunteers] at risk," said Tennessee Highway Patrol Lt. Brad Wilbanks to the Jackson Sun, "Law enforcement will still be around to respond to anything we find as it comes up."

The paper reports that police were the only ones searching for Bobo yesterday and will continue to be the only ones searching today, because of a forecast of severe storms.

Authorities ask that volunteers return to Decatur County Thursday if Bobo still hasn't been found.

Edit to fix quote bracket.  MB
I think the perp must have been in the vicinity of the house, maybe a long a treeline, where he could see the comings and goings that morning and waited for Holly. Creepy as that is, I bet he watched her mother and father leave the home, maybe even watched as they let a dog out that morning. He must have crept closer and closer in order to be able to grab Holly the way he did. Can't imagine there's that much distance between the house door and the carport. Is it possible, if there are dogs, that this perp is so well known to the family and the dogs, that they wouldn't be alarmed and bark at his presence?

Thank you Southrah for putting a 'real' spin on things.  I too have always lived in small towns and still do and LE that hasn't seen many major crimes often come up looking like Mayberry.  Believe me when I say (sorry folks but true)if you came here and got arrested for something you would have to figure a way out, I on the other hand knowing a few people would only need to make a call if I even got brought in in the first place.  It's the good ol boy system round here.  It's sad unless you are on the favored side.  I really hope that local LE partnered  TBI  will get the job done.  I'm gonna believe that since we haven't been told much that they know quite a bit.  Part of me does want to say that it could be the son of a well known family in the area and they are just proceeding with caution.  It's all a bit weird to me.  Something is off from jump street.  Let's just hope TBI will keep the good ol boy system in check, arrest the perv soon and bring Holly home!

Every time I follow a case like this that just keeps dragging on, I can't help but think that LE needs to be allowed to use truth serum on POI to find the missing victim.

Any thoughts on an unknown hunter watching the house/Holly looking for an opportunity?  I understand it is turkey hunting season there.  Idk if they use tree stands or hunt from the ground but I know after sitting quiet for so long they tend to notice stuff.  Just a thought.

Officials stop using citizens in search for Holly Bobo: Flooded roads cited as reason

The search still centers on several places scattered around northern areas of the county.

"It won't be uncommon for us to ask them to come back to look at new areas or go back over areas we've already covered," he said.

Southrah, welcome...it's nice hearing the point of view from a local. 
 ::MonkeyCheer4::

Being from a small town myself, I know how deep loyalty can run.  I hope the TBI, is able to crack this case and not let a "good ole boy" be protected. 

A few thoughts on the issues that are not being clarified by the family...

1.) I would imagine that the Bobo family feels confident that they don't need to defend themselves or their son, otherwise they probably would be in the media trying to clear CB.

2.) Do you suppose LE feels she is still alive and this is how the rumor has spun out of control and leaked out?  Keeping the family and evidence quiet might be a way to protect her if she is still alive.
 
3.) The family not begging for her safe return, may be because LE has advised them not to (only logical explanation).  I know in other "kidnapping cases", sometimes the perp actually gets joy out of seeing the family beg.  It's a sick thought, but a theory I have read about.  They enjoy the family's suffering.


Just a few of my humble thoughts...... ::MonkeyEek::

Since we don't really know what really happened, why the 911 call is not released.. everything re Clint Bobo is hush. I had some thoughts...

MAYBE...
It was a Home Invasion. Maybe more than one kidnapper was present. Maybe they tried to take Clint to and he got away making his 911 call later when he felt safe to call?

The only thing investigators are releasing re the call is it looked like Hollys BF. Maybe it was her BF or his face was covered so Clint Thinks it may be him but not sure..

Blood by the carport.. screams at 7:30, to me Clint had to know what was going on ..I think he is innocent. Why do gaurds stand 24 hrs outside the Bobos? Unless they feel there was a known witness to the kidnapper they Know has other motives other than just taking Holly?

Just opinions, I don't know what the truth is so just speculating on what could have took place.

When I read on this forum that Bill Way claimed that his sources suggested that there may be some truth to the rumor that three men were involved in the abduction of Holly Bobo ... it also crossed my mind that that the original report regarding a home invasion was credible but was buried for a reason.

Janet

+++

IF Bill Way's words reflect any truth ... could the orginal report regarding a home invasion ... regarding a violent abduction ... reflect the truth encompassing the disappearance of Holly Bobo?

This account would go a long way towards explaining ...

1.  The immediate presence of so many law enforcement agencies.
2.  Original reports that investigators discovered the blood.
4.  The immediate ruling out of Clint as a person of interest.
5.  The low profile of Karen, Dana and Clint.

Home Invasion - Dragged Away

Tenn. Woman May Have Been Abducted in Home Invasion
Published April 14, 2011


PARSONS, Tenn. -- A 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion  Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home in the community of Darden in Decatur County and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said. Its violent crime response team was gathering evidence.

There were questions as to why so many law enforcement agencies, including federal agents from the FBI and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), became involved in Holly’s case on day one. Sheriff Wyatt said they were taking every precaution that they knew to take.

“At this time,” he said, “whatever it might be, then that’s what we’re trying to prepare for.”

But police have no leads to the identity of Bobo's abductor.

The Story Changes

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

I am not saying that Bill Way ... whose public reputation is on the line ... is the bearer of the truth encompassing aspects of the Holly Bobo case.  However ... until the truth is revealed ... who knows.

Could it be that Bill Way's backtracking has everything to do with sources that were not credible or ... investigators who have instructed him to zip it?

Personally ... I cannot get past the changing accounts regarding the abduction of Holly Bobo ... changing accounts revealed by spokespersons for the investigation ... changing accounts which John Mehr does not deny but refers to as miscommunication.

Could it be that Clint never diverted from his original account but ... the changed story has everything to do with investigators burying the truth for now?

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

Well, this person in suspicion by southrah and also blink, much be someone who is very influential or at least connected to someone very influential.  Someone with prior behaviors, and someone that would retaliate against someone who divulged a suspicion?  In my gut, this confirms that they are looking at someone very closely - but why no action?  Hoping somehow this will lead them to Holly?

Yes. I wouldn't want to put it on here for just anyone to read, but if I could tell you all the reasons I believe it, it would blow your mind. He is connected to everything, in one way or another.


Welcome South. I myself am a relative newbie and haven't participated on SM for awhile. Wanted too come out of lurkdom to ask: With regard to the individual you have in mind, is his family also well-connected? If so, could you speculate on how "high up" those connections run?

It's not really that he's connected, like in larger cities - politics, judges, law enforcement. It's that in this small town, everyone's family is connected somehow, and in every family or church, etc. There, the churches have as much power and influence as the judge. He's not particularly liked, but is feared by some. His family is well liked and known.

Re: Holly Bobo, 20yrs old, Parsons TN, abduction from home 4/13/11
« Reply #749 on: April 23, 2011, 02:25:48 AM »


Despite the changing stories ... two days following the disappearance of Holly ... two days following Clint's belief that he observed Holly's boyfriend leading her into the woods ... two days following the discovery of blood that had yet to be analyzed ... Clint and Drew were distanced as persons of interest by John Mehr.  Mehr conceded that there were no other persons of interest.

It does not add up.

It is evident that the members of the community love and respect the Bobos and Scotts.  However ... considering the two obvious persons of interest were immediately ruled out by investigators ... do either family have influencial connections that may exist in "higher places".

Holly Bobo Followed Kidnapper into Tennessee Woods in 'Fear of Her Life'
PARSONS, Tenn. April 15, 2011

The officer said that neither Bobo's brother nor her boyfriend were suspects. "We are confident of that," he said.
 
But police have no leads to the identity of Bobo's abductor.

"There is not a person of interest at this time," he said.

lol Yeah, and you don't have to actually attend, just if you family does and has and you grew up there, then it's your church and therefore stands behind you. Because the elders of these churches are the more wealthy people who built the town, as well as their parents.

That Bill Way clown owes this family an apology.


One more thing, from a highly respected source, I can tell you that Holly Bobo is NOT in any Hospital nor has she been, in the Decatur county area or anywhere else, since she went missing.  Sadly.

Sadly, indeed...Im told the same but the sin of it is that certain individuals did give it merit & this family is going thru enough torture.   Yes, he owes the Bobo's a public apology.

Any thoughts on an unknown hunter watching the house/Holly looking for an opportunity?  I understand it is turkey hunting season there.  Idk if they use tree stands or hunt from the ground but I know after sitting quiet for so long they tend to notice stuff.  Just a thought.

Not sure if anyone has answered you yet, I'm still catching up from last night. I have hunted turkeys and it's done from the ground. Turkeys are not really flying birds, they can lift off for only short distances and don't get above the trees, cuz of their fat azzez...lol. They do roost in the trees at night leaving their ground nest and eggs on the forest floor unattended...don't know if that helps. Oh...another thing about turkey hunting, they can't smell for crap, but they can see like an eagle, camouflage, including face paint is a must and most states only allow hunting during dawn and dusk. When I hunted them in Maine, I was in the woods at 3am, waiting, and waiting.....and waiting sokme more. You don't stalk turkeys, you call them into range.

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

Rumors Holly was found

There have been online rumors that Holly has been found.

Helm said, “To my knowledge, Holly has not been found. We don’t have information indicating she is either alive or dead.”

Helm said Tuesday afternoon, “We have no new developments to report on today.

“TBI is still following leads on her [Holly’s] case.

“Volunteer search will continue if and when needed.

“A news release will be issued by TBI when we have new information to release," Helm said.

If he was contacted that he was wrong he needed to make the public apology immediately.   I doubt investigators would tell him to hush an apology for something being totally incorrect, they may have had a few other choice words with him though!    Anything is possible but I highly doubt at this point with the TBI & FBI and an eye from the Governor's office local LE would go that far to tell a source something of that nature only for it to be completely false considering it would be verified by the agencies that are in charge of the investigation.   Even a suspect would expect to hear this news from more than one local radio guy, especially with our highly communicative society even in these more rural neighborhoods i.e. TV, radio, newspapers, internet, high functioning cell phones.

Very intriguing

 ::snipping2::

One of the questions raised online was: Should the fact Clint saw a man in full camo standing outside his home at 7:30 in the morning have raised a red flag?

A local resident familiar with the citizens of Decatur County and who wishes to remain anonymous said it is not uncommon for Holly, her boyfriend, or people in Decatur County to dress in full camo, and that it's not unusual to see someone coming out of the woods early in the morning dressed in full camo. Especially during the months of April and May.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency confirmed Wednesday that turkey hunting season runs from April 2 to May 15 for the general public. The agent confirmed that not only local residents hunt for turkeys in Decatur County. He said that people come from out-of-town and out-of-state.

From what locals say, turkey season is a big deal in Decatur County and was in full-force when Holly went missing.


 ::snipping2::

WSMV.com reported that authorities said the 911 center received two phone calls the morning Holly was abducted - one call was from Clint, the other was from a woman police did not identify.

It is well-known that Clint called 911, but it has not been confirmed who made the second call.

Asked to confirm if the neighbor called 911, Helm said, “I’m unaware that a neighbor made a 911 call.”

The assumption has been that Holly’s neighbor heard Holly scream and called 911 on the morning of Holly's abduction.

Asked to confirm when the TBI got involved in Holly's case Helm said, "We got the call within 1-2 hours after the 911 call [made by Clint Bobo] was made."

Agree 100 percent. If you go back to the Topix thread, you'll see someone else said the helicopter was carrying a searcher who had injured herself on an ATV. Who knows if that is true either.

The only thing that gave me pause was the person who posted the rumor -- the radio guy. Anonymous posters are one thing but a public person is different. He should not have said anything IMO.

Hi everyone, new poster here...

In lurking and reading, it was clear to me that LE knows who did this, from their reporting that "it's someone in the community"...I realize that the town sounds to be one without a lot of outsiders, but then again someone mentioned truckers...but anywhoo...typically if they know it isnt an "outsider" than they know who it is, and are just awaiting the evidence to arrest (or waiting for the perp to reveal more evidence.)

Im still curious about the brother and the boyfriend.....realizing that lots of people wear camo, I would think of someone looked like "Holly's boyfriend" from behind (in a small town with few people)...then there is a good chance that person was indeed her boyfriend.  I can recognize lots of people from behind, based on their size, build, the way they walk, etc.

Hi everyone, new poster here...

In lurking and reading, it was clear to me that LE knows who did this, from their reporting that "it's someone in the community"...I realize that the town sounds to be one without a lot of outsiders, but then again someone mentioned truckers...but anywhoo...typically if they know it isnt an "outsider" than they know who it is, and are just awaiting the evidence to arrest (or waiting for the perp to reveal more evidence.)

Welcome Marina!  I have had the same questions about the brother and boyfriend but LE seems to be saying the brother and boyfriend are cooperating fully.  Could the brother have meant the ex-boyfriend?  As far as I know we don't really know who that person is.  Could it have been a friend that happened to be a guy? 

I agree, LE has a good idea who this person is.

Id be curious to know if the person selling the tires is from that small town.

Also, if the person (allegedly) not allowing their yard to be searched is the unnamed person that southrah suspects.

It seems to me, that if someone is refusing to let their yard be searched, and they are indeed suspected, that it wouldnt be hard to get a search warrant.....

Beautiful song on that tribute video, Drew & Holly depicted in many of the pictures.   Clint's FB has a picture of Holly with the TBI number across it.

Capp....re: probable cause....usually, it's not hard to find something, even unrelated, to get the suspect into questioning, which could then bring about something that could be used for probable cause. 

This may be due to the suspect's relations with important persons in town, if they know who it is and havent been able to get any foot in that door.  Im assuming they havent done any questioning, as it seems that would be known (and leaked) if they had questioned someone...but maybe Im wrong.

I cannot with any certainty say for sure what has or hasn't been done.  I'd venture to say that its obvious questioning has taken place (which doesnt necessarily implicate someone).

I posted last night that my local CBS channel WREG at 5PM had a report and they spoke to the "significant finding" (reported cell) & went further to state that certain friends of Holly's and Clint's fingerprints have been taken (some of which as I know it a few are mutual).

There are many rumors and a lot of speculation on topix about who may have been involved.  I enjoy the pages that stick to the facts.  The rumors about her family have really ticked me off, they do not need that during this difficult time.

I do feel like it is someone in the community, I have thought that from the start. It didn't seem like a random thing. I felt like it had to be someone she knew in some way, or someone she had come across. Your not just going to be led into the woods that easily with someone you do not know. I wondered if she had been somewhat lured into the woods. Or maybe her life was threatened.

Welcome Marina

It seemed that John Walsh more spoke of the family as to what he generally believes should take place such as keeping the case in the media by appearances, etc.  As we all know, he firmly believes that immediate family/friends should be polygraphed immediately working in and then extend an investigation out from there as well as assisting LE as to who they can eliminate as a POI or suspect.  He also believes its essential for family members to appear in interviews, etc. to keep the case in the public's attention (especially for tips).

I did hear him discuss the fact that to his knowledge her brother had not taken a poly but that's not to say it may very well have been done but not released for public knowledge.

No, not really. I've not heard them speculating, except toward the family, just because they believe Clint's story changed. Also, some are saying that the dogs stopped at hitting scent off the property - not in the woods. Don't know if that's true.

Welcome Sunrise & add to that the hour it took place...7:30AM.  It was not an act of opportunity such as like if she were leaving a parking lot or walking along a sidewalk but not necessarily with people about to witness.  I agree, unfortunately she was specifically targeted.

Welcome to the cage marina!

I agree.

From the getgo it has been my contention IF Clint thought Holly was with her boyfriend ... then she was with her boyfriend.  It is not as though Holly's boyfriend was a stranger to Clint. 

Clint's account ... according to TBI Spokesperson John Mehr ... regarding the events encompassing the abduction of his sister causes me to suspect that an abduction never happened.

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

While there for the search & speaking to certain parties otherwise I heard the absolute opposite from dozens I spoke to personally.   Not a sole, not a one speculated any wrongdoing on Clint's part nor the rest of the family.   I'm not saying that no one has right there in the community, I'm simply pointing out that not a word pointed in that direction was believed at all that I heard.   Considering we are at the two week mark it only serves as an indicator how most within the community may be thinking.

We're at a certain point in this case that many other ones experience without a relatively quick resolution when things are kept close to the vest by LE agencies, it raises concerns, speculation & even the rumor mill begins to spin faster....its an exercise in patience & at times a good bit of frustration at all levels.   We're all human, we all want answers, we all struggle as these heinous crimes reoccur all too often.

I've read the back and forth today with interest and frankly, I'm so glad to sense they are closing the gap on the investigation and arrest.  Well, at least that's what I'm hoping is happening.

Since I have no clue as to "whodunit" and don't have the energy nor alertness to even loosely stitch clues together today, I just want to know one thing from those of you who are better attuned to what's happening...

Do you think Holly is still alive?

I haven't felt this up and down in hope and despair since Caylee's and Morgan's cases.  I think I got so emotionally involved in their cases that I tried to shelter myself from those that followed  However, the mere proximity of Holly's abduction has again caused this roller coaster of emotional distress. I am finding it more difficult to maintain my usual optimism.

I admire those of you who can delve into these cases day after day whether professionally or as an avocation. I just can't seem to readjust from the sadness now that I'm older and retired. I suppose it's because I don't have enough to distract me.

Holly's future is just unfolding and her nurse's career just beginning. It hurts my heart to think it may never bloom to its fullest. I do hope this ends as a fulfillment of scripture (loosely paraphrased) that in this case indeed, the sowing of tears reaps joy.

Hi Sunrise,

I dont think that it's ever a horible thing to question the story of the last person to see the victim, or their loved ones....and in this case they are one and the same.  What they need at this difficult time is to have Holly returned safely, and if that is not possible, to know the truth about what happened to her, and have the perpetrator brought to justice.

I can think of scenarios that dont involve a disturbed psycho......such as siblings or bf/gf getting into a heated exchange that accidentally turns physical....not that I would think such a situation is acceptable, or that I think it happened here, but there are many things that could have happened leading to blood on a carport and a missing girl, that were not meant to lead to death.

For that reason, nobody should be ruled out....but everyone's story should be scrutinized....and most loved ones realize that is necessary to do so in an investigation, and are not offended by it.

I dont know if this family is keeping quiet because they really already know who did it, and are just waiting for LE to get the evidence they need, or if there are other reasons for them to be quiet.  In any case, I dont look at speculating about anyone to be done out of harm, because everyone really just wants Holly brought home safely, and are looking at all avenues to get that done.

My thoughts exactly!

It would make sense that investigators consider the possibility that an unintended impulsive act of wrongdoing took the life of Holly Bobo ... an unintended impulsive act of wrongdoing that could not be taken back.  In other words ... an abduction never happened.
 
In the name of justice NOBODY with a close connection to Holly should receive an immediate pass from investigators as a person of interest ... especially the only witness to her alleged abduction.

In lurking and reading, it was clear to me that LE knows who did this, from their reporting that "it's someone in the community"...I realize that the town sounds to be one without a lot of outsiders, but then again someone mentioned truckers...but anywhoo...typically if they know it isnt an "outsider" than they know who it is, and are just awaiting the evidence to arrest (or waiting for the perp to reveal more evidence.)

couple that with the fact that there are now a couple people on message boards (who dont even live there) that have come to the same idea of who this person is...certainly LE knows.

Something that was posted, that I havent seen much info on, are the ATV tires that were posted for sale.  Does anyone have more info about those tires?

Im still curious about the brother and the boyfriend.....realizing that lots of people wear camo, I would think of someone looked like "Holly's boyfriend" from behind (in a small town with few people)...then there is a good chance that person was indeed her boyfriend.  I can recognize lots of people from behind, based on their size, build, the way they walk, etc.   

Welcome Marina!  I have had the same questions about the brother and boyfriend but LE seems to be saying the brother and boyfriend are cooperating fully.  Could the brother have meant the ex-boyfriend?  As far as I know we don't really know who that person is.  Could it have been a friend that happened to be a guy? 

I agree, LE has a good idea who this person is.

Considering there is allegedly a restraining order against the ex-boyfriend for threatening the life of Holly ... Clint would have to explain why he had no concern when he observed his sister being "led" into the woods.

Hi Marina,

Yes I would think it would be normal procedure to question those who last saw the victim. And yes I think we are all hoping that she will be returned safely to her loved ones. I understand what you are saying, this case disturbs me greatly, as they all have that I have followed. I do not feel like it was anyone within the family(not saying your insinuating that), yes there could be so many scenario's. I personally feel like it was someone she knew, and they are MOST definitely in that community and from things I have read and pieced together I have put 2 in mind that could be a possibility. I think it could be possible this person was obsessed with her, maybe had a thing for her and she wasn't interested. So he may have gotten upset and decided to take what he wanted so to speak. Or maybe she knew something on him or someone he knows or was involved with. And he took her to keep her quiet or maybe to harm her. I don't know just things that I have thought about. I do think this was planned and not a random thing. I could be wrong. I do have a habit of calling people who commit crimes like this unstable, disturbed or pyschotic well as sociopath's and a few other choice names. And yes some times things happen in the heat of the moment, I do agree with that. As far as the family keeping quiet, maybe they have been told to, or maybe they are just so traumatized due to all of this, that they are having trouble functioning.












Hi Sunrise,

I dont think that it's ever a horible thing to question the story of the last person to see the victim, or their loved ones....and in this case they are one and the same.  What they need at this difficult time is to have Holly returned safely, and if that is not possible, to know the truth about what happened to her, and have the perpetrator brought to justice.

I can think of scenarios that dont involve a disturbed psycho......such as siblings or bf/gf getting into a heated exchange that accidentally turns physical....not that I would think such a situation is acceptable, or that I think it happened here, but there are many things that could have happened leading to blood on a carport and a missing girl, that were not meant to lead to death.

For that reason, nobody should be ruled out....but everyone's story should be scrutinized....and most loved ones realize that is necessary to do so in an investigation, and are not offended by it.

I dont know if this family is keeping quiet because they really already know who did it, and are just waiting for LE to get the evidence they need, or if there are other reasons for them to be quiet.  In any case, I dont look at speculating about anyone to be done out of harm, because everyone really just wants Holly brought home safely, and are looking at all avenues to get that done.

Hi to all, I am new here. I have been following this case since the beginning. Following on here, and a few other pages, I just recently started reading Topix. There are many rumors and a lot of speculation on topix about who may have been involved.  I enjoy the pages that stick to the facts.  The rumors about her family have really ticked me off, they do not need that during this difficult time. I feel that it takes a truly disturbed person to commit crimes like these. I have been holding out hope that Holly is still alive, praying that she is. I hope the psycho who did this will be brought to justice soon. I know they have leads and I hope that the sorry piece of work that did this, if he has harmed her. I hope that he will fry for it. I do feel like it is someone in the community, I have thought that from the start. It didn't seem like a random thing. I felt like it had to be someone she knew in some way, or someone she had come across. Your not just going to be led into the woods that easily with someone you do not know. I wondered if she had been somewhat lured into the woods. Or maybe her life was threatened. She is a beautiful girl with her whole life ahead of her, and I hope that some sick selfish creep did not get the opportunity to take it away from her. Still hoping and praying for Holly's safe return.


Thank you!

Welcome Sunrise!

Holly Bobo: FBI says "led away" not dragged through carport
April 15th, 2011 1:28 pm ET


<snipped>

According to the source, Holly had two ex-boyfriends.  One from a few days ago and the other, she had a restraining order against, because he threatened to kill her.  Holly left the house to go to school and her brother heard her arguing with her ex-boyfriend who was dressed in camo, outside the home.  He saw them both walking towards the wooded area of the yard, and he went back to what he was doing.  About an hour later he noticed his sister's car was still in the driveway.  He called his parents, a friend of Holly's and then the ex-boyfriend, and then the police.

Holly's ex-boyfriend was at work earlier and then left and he has not been seen since.

that is interesting...albeit unconfirmed.  Southrah did mention that the person she suspected (which I believe blink also has heard could be a suspect)...is someone that people might be afraid of (oh, too lazy to see how she phrased it, but that it wouldnt be a surprise or something....)

In any case, we must all be going in the wrong direction, or be following lots of crazy internet rumors....because from far, far away....it seems to easy....

Either
1. it's easy, and LE are really lame (probably not the case)
2. it's not what we think at all
3.  it's easy, but the ties to this perp are such (money, LE) that they need to mind every p and q before making a move.

Which leads me to wonder....does ex-boyfriend have a red honda ATV?  and what does his daddy do?

realizing this is all just speculation....but that piqued my curiousity even more....

which ex has not been seen since? the recent ex or the one with the restraining order?

was he at work prior to 7:30, and then left before that time....or was he at work AT 7:30 and left later (maybe due to being upset or wanting to be with family/friends to find her)??

Welcome to all our new Monkeys.

I want to revisit the phone because that is , in my mind, a very key piece of evidence into who this perp is?

The call is placed to Holly's Mom saying the cell phone can be found at a certain location.

The Bobo's and community have a $80,000 ransom for her Holly.

$80,00 ransom's normally mean that LE is tapping the phone lines of the family members..so if that call comes in..they have a recorded conversation.

The caller has not been ID'd for us yet..therefore we don't know who it was that called..doesn't mean LE doesn't know who called.

The phones being tapped at the Bobo's home would mean that the call was more then likely placed on Holly's phone.  That means the phone was more then likely recharged at some point during her disappearance.

LE sends out searchers..the local LE and fire company to pick up the phone and scour the area..possibly for the Sim Card..possibly for any other evidence.

That leads to the conclusion that this person is not only taunting her family, but also LE.

I would think with brass balls like that, it is not unreasonable to believe they would have enjoyed being part of the searches.  Not only to know what was going on where, and when....but also to enjoy their own handiwork and the activity they had created.  Look at me..see what I can do!

LE has tire treads, a phone, more then likely a recording of that voice on the phone, a lunch purse and possibly a good indication of who placed that call.

I am hoping that the call was placed by an alive Holly under the direction of her captor...but that may not be so....but it sure would eliminate any risk he took in making that call and someone ID'ing his voice.

I do not think that he is doing this for the ransom..I do think he is doing this to settle some score, either with Holly, her family or possibly a friend..and he is also doing this to settle a score with LE.  I don't think this is some demented outsider ..this feels personal and premeditated...he knew what he was going to do at each turn..he planned this and is watching and waiting and participating. 

JMHO

I agree...the silence is weird.  And on the facebook page, BHBHS, people seemed especially concerned that onlhy good thoughts and prayers be mentioned, NO SPECULATION....even more so than is typical with cases such as these.  Ive always found that odd, because speculating is often how you figure out theories and eventually find the person (albeit by LE, not internet forum folks...usually)  Made me think everyone really already knew who the person was....and for reasons I dont understand, wanted nothing said about it.

It sure seems like not one thing has been confirmed except that Holly was taken and a lunch box found. The rest is confusing or too sensitive to even speculate about. It's as if the whole town is off limits. Very strange.
Is there fear amongst town ppl. that a stranger may have been stalking?
Is there local whispers or is everybody mum out of fear or respect or ??
Since the 13th is a long time for rumors to be squashed.

I don't know about there, but here, guys (and some gals) will go hunting before classes, after classes, before work shifts, etc.  Also, schoolsystems are having spring break and so that is a time for hunting as well.  Hunting is something that some folks do like some of us follow crime forums.

Is it possible the reason the blood DNA results are not being discussed is because the blood didn’t come from a person at all? If you wanted to lure a nurse-in-training into the woods during turkey hunting season, you could make up a plausible story (“my friend has been in a hunting accident in the woods”) if you were covered in turkey blood…

I had thoughts along this line...someone played upon Holly's nursing skills to lure her into the woods. I thought of animal blood at the scene or that maybe it was Holly's abductor's. Now I'm thinking about all the dog talk last night too....

I am very troubled concerning many aspects encompassing the Holly Bobo investigation.  It is my hope that TBI investigators are behind the scenes diligently  putting together a case that implies that justice for Holly will be the outcome.

Anyways ... off for a little nap.  In 3 1/2 hours I am attending the wedding of Kate and William.  My soft pink flannel gown covered with tiny little white daisies will dazzle all.

Search mum on item linked to missing Tenn. woman
The Associated Press

Friday, April 29, 2011 | 3:16 a.m
.

Searchers have found an item they think belongs to a Tennessee woman missing for nearly two weeks, but investigators aren't saying what it is.

A Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman said Monday it is unlikely the item found in the hunt for 20-year-old Holly Bobo will be described publicly unless investigators decide there is reason to do so.

The nursing student was last seen being led away from her rural home April 13 by a man wearing camouflage clothing.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm said investigators are "pretty sure" the item found in the ongoing search belongs to Bobo but it's not certain it will help.

Identifying persons of interest

CBS reported, "Tennessee law enforcement officials say that the search for missing nursing student Holly Bobo is narrowing, as they begin the process of identifying persons of interest in the case."


An email was sent to Kristin Helm, the spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations, Wednesday to confirm the CBS report.

This was Helm's response: "No, that's incorrect. What I told the reporter was that our investigation was narrowing, there was no mention of a person of interest.

"Meaning that there's a lot of things we know now that we didn't know ten days ago and that our investigation is more focused. We are currently still following all leads."

Officials stop using citizens in search for Holly Bobo
Flooded roads cited as reason
11:20 PM, Apr. 27, 2011   
http://www.jacksonsun.com/article/20110428/NEWS25/104280313

With some flooded roads and water levels rising, law enforcement authorities have decided to suspend the use of volunteers to help look for Holly Bobo.
 ::snipping2::
"Anything new that comes up we can react, but as far as volunteers we're not reorganizing them until the (flooding) stabilizes," said Lt. Brad Wilbanks with the Tennessee Highway Patrol on Wednesday.
ohn Mehr, special agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said in a high profile case such as this that authorities have received numerous leads to follow up.

Since the abduction, thousands of volunteers have been involved in the search. If needed, they could return to help in the search, Mehr said.

"It won't be uncommon for us to ask them to come back to look at new areas or go back over areas we've already covered," he said.

Police in Holly Bobo investigation still mum about item found during search for missing nursing student

CBS/AP/WREG) PARSONS, Tenn. - Searchers have found what they believe to be a personal item belonging to Holly Bobo, the missing Tennessee woman, but are still not saying what it is, citing the ongoing investigation.

Pictures: Holly Bobo Missing

The new clue was reportedly found last weekend along the road in the northern part of Decatur County, Tenn.

The item most likely won't be described publicly unless investigators decide there is a reason to do so, a Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman told CBS affiliate WREG Monday.

TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm says although they're "pretty sure" the item belongs to Bobo, they are not yet certain it will help the investigation. So far the only item found that's been confirmed to be Holly's is her white lunch bag, according to WREG.

One volunteer involved in the search claimed the new item found was 20-year-old Holly Bobo's cell phone, according to local station WMCTV. ::snipping2::

Disappointment Grows In Missing Woman Search
Few Clues Found In Search For Holly Bobo
Reported by Josh DeVine

POSTED: 4:22 pm CDT April 29, 2011
UPDATED: 5:23 pm CDT April 29, 2011

PARSONS, Tenn. -- As the mystery surrounding missing Decatur County woman Holly Bobo grows, so does the disappointment.

Apart from two small clues, there's no sign of the nursing student. It's weighing heavily on those in her hometown, who are no longer part of the search.

 ::snipping2::

About 2 1/2 weeks later, the command center is now closed. The volunteer search effort is temporarily suspended -- another layer of frustration for many in the weary community.

"We're just disappointed," said volunteer searcher Billy Craft. "We should be out there. We should be doing something. … I think she's still alive; that's my gut feeling."

Still, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put off volunteer searches until there's credible evidence pointing them to a specific area.

On Thursday, Channel 4 news revealed exclusively that the TBI will examine the cases of four women, abducted or killed in the surrounding area, as part of the Bobo investigation. The cases date back 30 years.

The mere possibility of a connection, though, is added worry for a town desperately wanting to help and waiting for a reason to celebrate.

Muffy is correct in general.  I'm not sure but in this case it may have been a number openly posted on Craigslist but still, since this is a missing persons case it's best to err on the side of caution.  Thanks for understanding New Monkey.

Investigators Examine Cases Of Missing Women
Cases Back To 1980 Considered In Missing Woman Search

Quote
n 1980, two teenage girls walked to a store in Dover. They bought their items, began the one-mile walk home and were not seen again.
Six weeks later, 14-year-old Carla Atkins and 16-year-old Vicky Stout were found dead. They had been executed in a remote area of Land Between the Lakes.

In Dickson County in 1987, 18-year-old Leanne Greene and her brother ran out of gas. Her brother jogged to a gas station. He returned 8 1/2 minutes later to find his sister gone. She's still missing.

In 1992, Shelia Bradford went to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. She had some information about a man she knew. Two days later, she disappeared; 18 years later, there's still no body and no clues.

All of the disappearances were within an hour's drive of each other.

New Monkey - Our rule here is not to post phone numbers.  I know you didn't post the entire thing.  The problem is trying to be consistent with what we allow and don't allow in the forum.  We don't allow phone numbers and without researching how much of the actual number you posted, it would be hard for everyone to know.  So, Muffy was right to edit it out to keep with forum rules. 

I hope you understand.  It's really not a huge issue and I don't want to see Holly's thread turn into a conversation about phone numbers.   ::MonkeyCool::

I wonder if the DNA they found didn't match any of the family, including HB, and none of the POI either.  It just seems like such a long shot to connect to this case, but I guess they have to consider it.  If the tip about the cell phone really happened as reported (given to HB's mom) then how would that play into connecting to past murders? Strange indeed.

O4Bull

What the Holly Bobo case needs is someone to take the initiative to do some "investigative" reporting.  In other words ... the unanswered hard questions encompassing Clint Bobo need to be persued.  Justice demands it.
 
When the changing stories of Clint Bobo are considered ... Clint Bobo the only witness to the alleged abduction of his sister ... it is difficult to comprehend the justification of the massive search effort in the past two weeks ... the massive search effort involving and putting at risk hundreds of volunteers.
 
It would make sense that investigators consider the possibility that an unintended impulsive action of wrongdoing took the life of Holly Bobo ... an unintended impulsive action of wrongdoing that could not be taken back.  In other words ... an abduction never happened.
 
1.  Which one of Clint Bobo's accounts encompassing the alleged abduction of his sister reflects his words in his 911 call?
 
2.  Why did investigators rule Clint Bobo out as a person of interest within two days of his sister's disappearance?
 
3.  Why was so many law enforcement agencies immediately involve?.  Do the Bobo's have influential connections in "high places"?  Is Clint Bobo being protected?
 
4.  Why has Holly Bobo's brother, mother and father kept such a low profile?
 
5.  In the process of elimination ... has Clint Bobo sumitted and passed a polygraph?  In the process of elimination ... has Holly's parents submitted to a polygraph?

Good Night All.

Janet

Janet,
all very good questions.  I also question the brother's account, and what intrigues me so much is the lack of any photos of him.  HB's boyfriend Drew has his picture plastered everywhere.  Why are there no photos of the brother?  He's not a minor, so I don't really get it.  The few pics I've seen of HB's mom, she has her eyes closed and reminds me so much of Susan Smith.  I know that doesn't mean she's guilty of anything, but it is really strange.

Sleep tight.

One thing that has been bothering me is the "lunch purse".  Was it just her lunch?  Did she also have a purse?  I may have missed that information, so forgive me if I have.

How odd is it that she hung on to that lunch purse all the way into the woods if she was fighting with her abductor?  If she was approached as some have suggested and asked for help in the woods and she went willingly, why did she take her lunch?  Why not throw it down by the car, or toss it into the car?

Does this seem strange to anyone else?

Maybe they are trying to say that the cases going back a few years could be connected to one family or man in particular who keeps committing these types of crimes against women.  Maybe a well known member of society or a family that is well known.  We all know that one family OR relative that is completely off or is a criminal (not to the degree of kidnapping/poss. murder)and is just brushed under the rug and not really spoken about.  To me, that would mean that specific family/person is related to someone in LE or city official.

Or maybe the DNA was animal and not human.  Someone had suggested that Holly being a nursing student might have gone into the woods with someone if he said there was an injured dog or another person injured.

How odd is it that she hung on to that lunch purse all the way into the woods if she was fighting with her abductor?  If she was approached as some have suggested and asked for help in the woods and she went willingly, why did she take her lunch?  Why not throw it down by the car, or toss it into the car?

Does this seem strange to anyone else?
I would like to know if her books were left behind. Did she normally carry an oversize bag that had her books, purse & lunch purse in it. If the items were all together at one point, was she able to toss the lunch thing out a window?  If it was a deliberate attempt to throw off investigators wonder why the other personal items weren't strewn around also? Maybe she already put her other stuff in the car before she was abducted??

When I was there last weekend to search, we were told to look for very specific items, including things that could be found in a purse (of which I cannot disclose details) along with other specific items.   Also, in talking to quite a few people while there and otherwise I'm not left with the impression that this person was a stranger to her nor anyone within her own family.   

She could have carried it to a certain point.  We dont know what happened to her & at what point of travel by foot or otherwise something occurred.   That being said, we cant be sure if and when she still had it on her person or if the person responsible took possession of her personal belongings.  If she was startled by this person but not immediately alarmed she very well could have carried what was around her shoulder or in her hands not realizing she was in danger.   It may not have occurred to her to say, "wait a minute, let me drop this stuff in my car."

For this reason and a few others, I do not think the person responsible is old enough to have a 30 yr heinous crime career, such as a BTK or other serial killer.

I agree Capp.  I do admit though that when they mentioned going back 30 years I immediately thought about father/son crimes.  Like grooming the son to do as the father has done in the past. (I know, I've watched too many movies)

LOL, it actually did cross my mind as well....all I can say right now is I hope this "unsub" gets caught real soon.   Speaking of, Criminal Minds had an episode with that storyline recently.  On a serious note, I hope we get answers soon but I'm afraid the outcome is not what we want to hear, I pray otherwise.

Capp, my dear, question for you please...did you get the impression that LE thinks the abductor was throwing Holly's things away in a random pattern just to get rid of stuff or are they thinking she has thrown out something of hers little by little, like a hint/trail?  I know the latter would be hard to do with someone watching over you.  What's your take on that?  TIA

New Monkey - Our rule here is not to post phone numbers.  I know you didn't post the entire thing.  The problem is trying to be consistent with what we allow and don't allow in the forum.  We don't allow phone numbers and without researching how much of the actual number you posted, it would be hard for everyone to know.  So, Muffy was right to edit it out to keep with forum rules. 

I hope you understand.  It's really not a huge issue and I don't want to see Holly's thread turn into a conversation about phone numbers.   ::MonkeyCool::

I've been assuming that the lunch purse was disposed of by her abductor.  I read a post somewhere in which someone opined that it was one of those cross-your-body type purses so she would have not been carrying it so much as wearing it.

Janet,
all very good questions.  I also question the brother's account, and what intrigues me so much is the lack of any photos of him.  HB's boyfriend Drew has his picture plastered everywhere.  Why are there no photos of the brother?  He's not a minor, so I don't really get it.  The few pics I've seen of HB's mom, she has her eyes closed and reminds me so much of Susan Smith.  I know that doesn't mean she's guilty of anything, but it is really strange.

Sleep tight.

O4Bull

I do not believe that Holly's parents are guilty of any wrongdoing encompassing the disappearance of their daughter.  However ... Karen and Dana are positioned between a rock and a hard place neverthelss.

Considering Clint's changng stories and ... considering the low profile of Holly's brother and parents ... could it be that a plea is being negotiate behind the scenes ... a plea deal ... a catalyst which will reveal the truth?

If what happened to Holly was the result of an unintentionial act in the heat of the moment ... could it be that a conscience will prevail ... could it be that the truth will prevail?

Just speculating ....

Have a good Saturday all!

Yes, it seems strange to me, too.

I'm thinking the lunch purse was more like a tote bag with long handles that she may have slung over her head, and the handles rested on one shoulder, while the bag was to the other side.  That way her arms and hands would be free to carry keys, books, etc.  Wouldn't have fallen off easily either.

I find it strange, too, that "someone" called Holly's mom about the general location of Holly's phone.  How did that person know it was Holly's phone and why didn't that person call the police?

I find it strange, too, about the "original" story changing...huh?

It's hinky and the signs to me that a story has gone hinky is when folks start trying to explain what's going on by saying: maybe LE is trying to keep the perp relaxed while LE is closing in on them.  That's always a sign to me that things are going awry.




Title: Re: Holly Bobo #2 4/25/11 -
Post by: Puzzler on April 30, 2011, 11:35:39 AM
Wow, that's not really encouraging news.  It doesn't explain so many odd things in this case.  Perhaps they are just trying to get the perps to relax and hope to catch him/them off guard.  I'm still surprised if the perp is either 1 or more than 1 young boy that this could be kept under wraps this long.

Yes, I agree...not encouraging at all. I realize serial killers can wait years, but 30 years seems like a really long wait, especially when the others weren't really spread that far apart. Hummmm. Don't know. Strange, strange indeed.
I wonder if the DNA they found didn't match any of the family, including HB, and none of the POI either.  It just seems like such a long shot to connect to this case, but I guess they have to consider it.  If the tip about the cell phone really happened as reported (given to HB's mom) then how would that play into connecting to past murders? Strange indeed.

Or maybe the DNA was animal and not human.  Someone had suggested that Holly being a nursing student might have gone into the woods with someone if he said there was an injured dog or another person injured.

Does anyone recall how it was stated about the blood being found.  I seem to recall that "flakes" of blood were found.  Am I remembering "flakes" correctly?

If so, flakes seem unlikely to me for something that had recently occurred.

Janet, have we ever been able to track down whether Clint's story changed or whether some zealous LEO or reporter changed the words for Clint and then had to recant? 

Either way, the changing of the original story....was the start of the uneasiness with what has been reported.  From then on, IMO, you can't trust any of it.

Does this seem strange to anyone else?

At this point I don't honestly know if I've read this somewhere as fact or if it was just speculation. However, I do remember a discussion "somewhere" (perhaps only in my own head???) that the lunch purse/bag was probably the type that contained a water bottle.  If so, it makes sense to me that she would take it with her if she thought she was on the way to help someone who might have been injured. I still think she was first lured into the woods thinking she was going to help someone...perhaps someone she loved. It's been in the back of my head all along that perhaps she was told that someone she knew had been injured in the woods. That could easily explain her "scream" and her haste in going to the scene without thought of her own safety and explain her appearing to walk with the person as opposed to being forced.

I've just been trying for days now to understand why she would accompany the person away from the house.  I do think it's fairly obvious she knew the person.  Either that or there was such a threat to her safety and her loved ones that she thought she had no choice.

I so respect our TBI and trust their professionalism but like so many others, I have the patience of a two-year-old in a candy store. I wish they could tell us more but I do understand them wanting to have all the t's crossed and i's dotted. When I weigh my want-to-know against Holly's safety and a conviction of the scoundrel, it's not even close. I just pray the outcome reveals that she is still alive.

Either is possible.   I know the hope is that she left a trail which would indicate she had to be alive to do so, the reality now is that 2 weeks plus has gone by & I know what other specific items they were looking for which we have no indication has been found or not.

I tend to lean towards the abductor had to have either an ATV or other vehicle available in order for the lunch purse to be found miles away from her home & there are things indicating that there was time spent in the wooded areas within her community.

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

Home Invasion - Dragged Away

Tenn. Woman May Have Been Abducted in Home Invasion
Published April 14, 2011


PARSONS, Tenn. -- A 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen being dragged from her house by a man dressed in camouflage might have been abducted in a home invasion Wednesday, authorities said.

Holly Bobo's 25-year-old brother told investigators that he saw the man dragging his sister across the carport at her family home in the community of Darden in Decatur County and toward a wooded area, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said. Its violent crime response team was gathering evidence.

Not Forcefully Dragged

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

"There were six of us that went. All piled up in my truck and took a road trip, and it was awesome," Pulley explained.

place blame on who,the who could be media and LE dosent want to alienate
the media, or the who could have been an over zealous, someone in the dept,
or the media hears that Q asked and took it as fact,we all know the media
has a sensationalize mentality these days, i believe it was a media mistake

Janet,
all very good questions.  I also question the brother's account, and what intrigues me so much is the lack of any photos of him.  HB's boyfriend Drew has his picture plastered everywhere.  Why are there no photos of the brother?  He's not a minor, so I don't really get it.  The few pics I've seen of HB's mom, she has her eyes closed and reminds me so much of Susan Smith.  I know that doesn't mean she's guilty of anything, but it is really strange.

Sleep tight.


O4bull.......I watched the video of her parents the first couple of days after Holly went missing and something about it bugged me to death, so I went back and found it.  http://www.wsmv.com/local-video/index.html?grabnetworks={videoid:4645147}

Her mom is sniffing and snubbing all the way through the video like she is sobbing her heart out......but there is one thing missing.  TEARS! I didn't see one. If someone was sobbing that hard they would have tears running all down the face and snot pouring out of the nose. She didn't even have a tissue. I am not implying she did something to Holly, but there is something that is just not right about this case. Something stinks to high heaven.

Ok everyone can start tossing nanners.......I can take the heat.

Hey darla!
I tried to watch the video, but it wouldn't work for me.  I'll try later on my new wireless computer.
Anyway, I wouldn't dream of throwing nanners at you.
I will take your word however, in what you saw and I agree most often
the lack of tears is incongruent with the other actions you describe.

I suspected Susan Smith from the getgo.  Her body language was off and tears lacking.

After describing that they went to work & Holly was going off to school Dana Bobo within what he said in the press conference spoke of someone knowing their routine & stated this:   "Is what Ive got in my mind, but I dont know that for sure..."   and then he stopped and said "okay," and proceeded to ask his wife if she would like to say something.

In my mind, by this brief presser the day after Holly's abduction it seems clear to me that the Bobo family had in mind someone outside of their family that knows Holly & the family's basic daily routines that may be responsible & since then by what I know I'm not seeing anything that contradicts that.

Question:  When/if, does a serial killer/rapist cease? 

Wouldn't they continue their activities?  Perhaps to a lesser degree.

Pedophiles for instance continue abusing when they are elderly.

I watched several times & what I saw was devastation & the one time her eyes opened up they were not bloodshot but solid red with swelling.   FWIW, I saw NO deception indicators whatsoever by either of Holly's parents...regarding those that have lied their faces off, I've seen it many times & can pick it up when it exists.

Holly Bobo Abduction: Police presence in Henderson County

April 30th, 2011 2:27 pm ET
Isabelle Zehnder

PARSONS, Tennessee (Isabelle Zehnder reporting) -- A local witness reported seeing a “substantial law-enforcement” presence in Henderson County, Tennessee, presumably related to the abduction of Holly Bobo from nearby Decatur County over two weeks ago.

Local News Anchor Will Nunley tweeted Saturday morning saying a witness reported a substantial law enforcement-led search is underway in Henderson County.

The small, tight-knit communities of Decatur County and other surrounding counties are exhausted, frustrated, and begging for answers – they want to know who abducted 20-year-old Holly Bobo from outside her Parson, Tennessee home.

Locals have reported a level of frustration rising in Decutar County this weekend as volunteer searchers are there - ready, willing, and able to search - while law enforcement is saying they do not need volunteers at this time.

The search was called off earliler in the week due to dangerous weather conditions. At this point the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI) is holding information close as investigators continue to follow up on hundreds of leads.

I hope BC realizes that she is posting her own first and last name for all to see.  Not sure why it is an issue for her.  Does she think her name is invisible?

Its a public page not a private set individual or group page.

I get the feeling that many of those "back and forth" comments are from local friends of Holly.  Of course, I may be wrong but somehow I don't think they really care that their names are showing.  I have been touched by how freely they share their faith and I do so hope that everyone's prayers are answered and Holly is found alive.

Their hope and excitement over the news is contagious today. I find myself unplugging and replugging my laptop as I go from room to room...not even willing to take the chance on the battery.

I pray, too, that today is the day Holly is found and justice is at least begun.

From the beginning, I think they have known who was responsible....I find when LE says, "someone in the community"...it's because they know the person, and know it wasnt random.  It makes me wonder why this whole "serial killer" concept is coming up..

As for the mom, she appears to be on medication, which would impact her emotional affect.  I did find it interesting that she looked to have eye make up on..maybe Im wrong, but that was more curious to me than her lack of tears (if you have mascara on, you typically arent planning on crying, or perhaps she was so cried out, and her eyes were puffy, she felt as if she needed some make up ??)  Just curious...

This is taking far too long...for a case where they seem to have suspicious people...reminding me of Kyron Horman and Hayley Dunn...where they have their main persons, but arent able to move forward on it.  :(

Everyone has their own take on Holly's mother's appearance so I'll just share what I thought, too.  The first impression I had was that she still had on her clothes from when she found out and honestly? I never paid any attention to the make-up but I would almost bet you that if it's her school clothes (notice the shirt about reading...), it's still the make-up she had on from that morning. I sincerely doubt she had slept and with all the comings and goings at her home, I would imagine she hadn't changed clothes nor attended to make-up. 

When push comes to shove, none of that matters anyway but it's only human to discuss whatever when we don't really have anything new to talk about, I guess.  I just can't imagine what these last two weeks have been like for that family.  I think whoever is responsible for having them stay out of the public eye (most probably LE) is probably who helped them hold onto whatever shred of sanity they have left. Plus, knowing others are praying with them and for them has helped, too, but most assuredly their strength comes from their faith.

Toy...that would make sense to me that she was still in the same clothes....and maybe Im wrong, but she looked to have on eyeliner....cant imagine that all stayed in place through everything (Im assuming she has she many tears, even if not on camera)..but maybe she touched it up? or has the tattooed kind? (I wouldnt expect that from a small town gal, but that's just my opinion).....I dont often wear mascara if I am going to somewhere that I expect to cry (funerals, etc)...but....???   To be honest, even if she was protecting her own son, I would still think she was innocent and devastated re: holly....so the no tears on camera doesnt bother me, I chalk it up to probably being medicated.

Marina, my first cousin has had tatted eyeliner for a couple of years now and she's from a rural town in TN even smaller than Holly's.  I seldom even bother with make-up so I don't even notice such but it seems like that tatted-on eyeliner is the cat's meow right now.  I had never heard of such until my cousin got it but this week on FB I saw several of my former students chatting about it.  Seems several of them have it and I taught them all in rural TN.

I just noticed her tee-shirt because it was school related and thought she might have on what she wore to school. I did wonder though about the blue jeans. My rural school system stopped teachers from wearing jeans a couple of years ago unless it was on designated days. They have a cool thing going there where on designated days they can pay a certain amount and wear jeans. The money goes to the United Way, I think...at least it's one of the charities...might be for cancer...can't remember right now.  Plus, they can wear jeans and school tee-shirts on school spirit days.  Smaller schools in the area (such as where Mrs. Bobo teaches) may still allow their teachers to wear jeans to school.

I do not believe that Holly's parents are guilty of any wrongdoing regarding the happenings encompassing disappearance of their daughter.  However ... Karen and Dana are positioned between a rock and a hard place neverthelss IF they have any  knowledge/suspicion in regards to their son.

Considering Clint's changng stories and ... considering the low profile of Holly's brother and parents ... could it be that a plea is being negotiate behind the scenes ... a plea deal ... a catalyst which will reveal the truth?

IF what happened to Holly was the result of an impulsive act in the heat of the moment ... an impulsive act that could not be taken back ... could it be that a conscience will prevail ... could it be that the truth will prevail?

Janet, have we ever been able to track down whether Clint's story changed or whether some zealous LEO or reporter changed the words for Clint and then had to recant? 

Either way, the changing of the original story....was the start of the uneasiness with what has been reported.  From then on, IMO, you can't trust any of it.



Puzzler

I cannot move on with any speculation until a reasonable explanation is forthcoming regarding the "miscommunication" regarding Clint Bobo's account of an "alleged" abduction.  I cannot move on with any speculation until it has been revealed that in the process of elimination Clint Bobo submitted to and passed a polygraph.

IF there is no believeable explanation and ... IF Clint Bobo did not submit to a polygraph and passed ... I cannot comprehend the massive searches which put hundreds of volunteers at risk.

TBI MEDIA RELEASE:  APRIL 13TH - DRAGGED ACROSS THE CARPORT TOWARDS THE WOODS

MEDIA RELEASE
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation


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.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 16TH - SHE WALKED INTO THE WOODS; NOT FORCEFULLY DRAGGED

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 27TH - THERE WAS SOME MISCOMMUNICATION

Hollly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

Search continues for Holly Bobo
April 30, 2011


There were no major developments Friday in the search for Holly Bobo, authorities said. Law enforcement will continue to follow leads that come in from northern Decatur County and other areas as they look for the missing 20-year-old nursing student, said John Mehr, special agent in charge of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Jackson office.

Officials have not given a timeline on if or when volunteers will be asked to return to help search. Volunteers had been a part of the search until severe storms and rising floodwaters became an issue in the last week.

Local briefs: More than 50 officers search for Holly Bobo
Quote
Law enforcement agencies used 50 to 75 officers in the cross-county search for Holly Bobo, a missing Decatur County nursing student, on Saturday, said John Mehr, special agent in charge with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in Jackson.

This indicates to me that there is a very specific reason why LE is investigating/searching in two counties and not merely because its a neighboring county nor anything to do with Clint.

Sometimes our county lines are blurred (for lack of a better word). Holly graduated from Scotts Hill (source:  http://www.jacksonsun.com/article/20110423/NEWS25/110423004/Friends-describe-Bobo-bright-selfless)

What some of you may not know about Scotts Hill is this:


Scotts Hill, Tennessee
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scotts Hill, Tennessee
—  Town  —

Location of Scotts Hill, Tennessee
 
Country United States
State Tennessee
Counties Henderson, Decatur

Scotts Hill is a town in Decatur and Henderson Counties in the U.S. state of Tennessee.




Thanks TOY!  Interesting.

Search continues for Holly Bobo

There were no major developments Friday in the search for Holly Bobo, authorities said. Law enforcement will continue to follow leads that come in from northern Decatur County and other areas as they look for the missing 20-year-old nursing student, said John Mehr, special agent in charge of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Jackson office.

Officials have not given a timeline on if or when volunteers will be asked to return to help search. Volunteers had been a part of the search until severe storms and rising floodwaters became an issue in the last week.

No, there is a concern for the safety of volunteers in the field, as well as maintaining the integrity of the investigation based on the intel that "as yet un-named" POI' (s) have previously searched.

In other words, there's a concern that an un-named POI has been in and among the volunteers during previous searches; therefore, now that that intel is out, LE has suspended using volunteers due to a concern for the safety of volunteers.

Do I have that right?

Are you questioning whether Holly was abducted at all and/or that the only other person home at the time, her own brother diid something & there is a huge conspiracy to cover it up?  I'm not questioning your opinion I'm just asking for clarification what you mean.   Tks Janet.

I cannot move on with any speculation until a reasonable explanation is forthcoming regarding the "miscommunication" regarding Clint Bobo's account of an "alleged" abduction.  I cannot move on with any speculation until it has been revealed that in the process of elimination Clint Bobo submitted to and passed a polygraph.

IF there is no reasonable explanation and ... IF Clint Bobo did not submit to and passed a polygraph ... I cannot comprehend the massive searches which put hundreds of volunteers at risk.

TBI MEDIA RELEASE:  APRIL 13TH - DRAGGED ACROSS THE CARPORT TOWARDS THE WOODS

MEDIA RELEASE
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation


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.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 16TH - SHE WALKED INTO THE WOODS; NOT FORCEFULLY DRAGGED

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 27TH - THERE WAS SOME MISCOMMUNICATION

Hollly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

I am not going to say what I know from some locales in the case as I was given that info in confidentiality, but I can assure you that CB is not a suspect or a POI nor is he involved in Holly's disappearance.  This suspicion of him needs to go bye bye. 

Blink described it perfectly when she said this could be a vigilante situation and I've also heard it described as a powder keg.  This is why LE and all the locals are being quiet about this case and I give them all credit for that.  LE, TBI and the FBI are doing all it takes to find Holly and I truly believe that they know who is responsible....and it is not CB.

I am not going to say what I know from some locales in the case as I was given that info in confidentiality, but I can assure you that CB is not a suspect or a POI nor is he involved in Holly's disappearance.  This suspicion of him needs to go bye bye. 

Blink described it perfectly when she said this could be a vigilante situation and I've also heard it described as a powder keg.  This is why LE and all the locals are being quiet about this case and I give them all credit for that.  LE, TBI and the FBI are doing all it takes to find Holly and I truly believe that they know who is responsible....and it is not CB.

The outcome will be what the outcome will be.  Until then I will base my speculation on the quotes of official spokespersons for the investigation.  Anonymous Facebook/Twitter sources do not cut it for me.  Comments may reflect the truth and then again they may not.

Decatur County Ranked Among Highest, Unfortunately…
by Cris Melton
4/13/11

<snipped>

It is a statistic no one wants to be a part of, but the facts are in: Tennessee ranked number one in the nation for the manufacturing of methamphetamines. According to the U.S. Department of Justice National Center on Drug Intelligence, Decatur County ranked among the top counties in the state to be plagued by this epidemic, accompanied by Perry, Humphreys, and Dickson. Listed contributing factors included large rural areas that may be hard for law enforcement officials to readily access, proximity to interstate I-40, and limited economic opportunities.

As most of us know, Clint Bobo initially said "dragged" and it was later changed to "led".

The official explanation by LE satisfies me ... even though I suspected him for a brief period of time.  One might say, "My husband dragged me to see this awful movie last night." This is the way Clint used the term IMO. I don't think he meant she was literally "dragged" into the wooded area.

Now there are those who think he changed his wording after investigators found no evidence that Holly was dragged. I might accept that if I didn't look at the totality of what we know to be official information from the authorities.

For example, for Clint to be the guilty party BOTH of these have to be FALSE.
1) A neighbor called 911 at approximately 7:30 reporting she heard a scream.
2) Holly's lunch purse was found with her lunch inside.

If either of these is TRUE, then she was alive in the morning and the window of opportunity for Clint to dispose of the body and plant evidence as far away as 8 miles simply defies credulity. Oh sure, Clint could have schemed to pack her lunch - or perhaps she made a habit of packing it the night before.

But both of these possibilities seem very unlikely IMO.

I'm pretty convinced Clint had nothing to do with her disappearance, but for the sake of argument...

a neighbor could have heard a scream (it could have been her mom, if something she saw, heard, etc... caused her to scream)

the lunch purse could have been planted earlier

I think Clint was most likely just misquoted, or was so shook up, in shock, and feeling a huge amount of guilt for not doing something, anything.  I think that's what most people have a hard time believing. (that he just watched her being led away, heard a scream, and didn't give chase)...

Karen Bobo, Holly & Clint's mother was already at work.   She is a teacher & works with their aunt, Whitney's mom.   I know where the neighbor's house is in relation to theirs and there is a decent distance between them, FWIW.

Investigators have been working in the county and looking further into the case from the command center, but no one was out searching for Bobo on Sunday, he said. Because of weather, there may not be any search teams sent out today, but investigators will continue to work, Mehr said.

Hello every one!

 
Does anyone here think it might be the BF?  Maybe she was breaking up with him the night before and he came to talk to her that morning before school.(this would verify clint seeing her with her BF)

Maybe he didnt like what she was saying and things got out of controll. He did her the ultimate harm!

I dont like to point the finger at him but  I really and honestly believe  if it was a sexual assault  we would have found her out in those woods and this seems to me like
an anger issue.. She is a very beautiful young woman, Im sure any guy would be very upset to loose her. 

JUst my opinion and my 2 cents

Search continues for Tenn. woman abducted outside her home
By Anthony DeCeglie Thursday, April 14, 2011


<snipped>

Holly had been dating a local boy, 19-year-old Drew Scott.

The boy's grandmother, Susie Siglow, told The Daily the two were madly in love and planning to marry, and said Drew was too distraught to speak.

"I’ve known Holly for a long time," Siglow said. "Holly would never hurt nobody and she would never run away from home. She is the sweetest person you could ever meet."

She added, "[Drew] is tore up. Last night was the first night they’ve been apart for about a year."

Food for Thought

Why is the Holly Bobo abduction getting so little coverage?
Kevin Cavanaugh
May 02, 2011


I have read that the good people of Tennessee are turning out in droves to help find Holly Bobo. Thousands of concerned citizens have already volunteered to walk through dense woods in an effort to uncover clues to help in Holly´s return, so many in fact that some had to be turned away. Law enforcement officials have stated they have never before seen turnout like what they are seeing in Parsons, Tennessee, a small rural town with a population of roughly 2,500 people.

Surprisingly, in excess of 2,000 individuals have shown up to help search for Holly. Kids have even volunteered to get out of school to help in the search effort – no, not as a way to skip a day of school, but in a sincere effort to help – how wonderful is that!

Maybe that is why Tennessee is called the Volunteer State. People in Tennessee really care for their neighbors – even if they do not personally know someone, they show up in droves in an effort to show just how much they care.

Now for the bad news – all this help, although greatly appreciated, is not enough. More is needed – not necessarily in the number of people walking shoulder to shoulder in dense woods – what is needed is a concerted effort nationally, regionally, and locally to keep this abduction in the forefront of the news.

When people see a television news article covering the abduction, that coverage, by itself, might help jog someone´s memory of something they might have seen that could be a clue in solving this case.

It is being covered in all three, just not with immediate family included at this time.  I recognize that this is an issue many are curious about why not but I'm inclined to take it as there is strategic reasons that they have been advised not to & not due to any wrongdoings on any of their parts.  A family has no say so in how an investigation is being conducted & we dont know what has been shared by LE with the immediate family.   I posted what Whitney said recently & it hints toward that she wishes she could tell people following her & Holly's case more but cannot at this time, to what extent that information is we also do not know.  We also do not know if the Bobo family plan on speaking out in the future.  Even Whitney stated that she did one national interview but doesnt plan on doing any others citing that its upsetting to hear everyone speculate about her cousin, Clint as well as those that feel her semi-celebrity was used for her benefit or some other surly reason.   As if this family isnt going thru enough, I find it perfectly understandable that they are feeling frustrated & hurt that accusations are being lodged against their family, including whether Holly's mom, Karen Bobo's tears were sincere.    At the same time, I also understand that these types of questions arise when an abduction and/or murder has taken place & have participated in various degrees in many cases.  It just so happens that in this case my personal view given what I know do not feel that any family member is responsible for what happened to Holly, nor her current boyfriend Drew, JMO.

When innocent, given what has been said if it were me involved personally regarding my family, I'd be tempted to do one but it wouldnt be pretty with what I had to say.   In observing many other cases over the years, sometimes no matter what an individual says doesnt seem to matter if someone's mind is made up.   For the most part I agree with those that feel that keeping the case in the public awareness is vital, but there are special circumstances where that may not be the wisest choice.  This becomes easier when LE deems it appropriate to share with the public certain facts such as passed polys, clearing POI's, naming suspects, etc. etc.   For the record, IMHO the silence goes more toward strategic reasoning rather than keeping things known to the public and/or the family's willingness to want to speak out publicly.

With absoloutely NO information comming out about anthing or anyone its very hard to put things into perspective. Everythng said comes from a third party so it means absoloutely NOTHING.  He said this, She said that! Just because someones  relative says how happy they were that may not  be the case.

Many times when they catch the perp ppl say OHHHH he was such a nice guy, so quiet and such a nice neighbor LOL.

So till some info comes to light im sitting up here on the fence...

Well if Drew was the next door neighbor  someone slape me ! ::MonkeyGavel:: or hit me with this mallet!

Welcome Eileen  :2waver:

Drew isnt her next door neighbor, and no I do not think he is involved.

What Casesignal has in her case Who's who is this as far as a neighbor:

D’Lynn Burton   Bobo family next door neighbor, selling t-shirts, unclear where the money is going  (next door not being a few feet away either)
http://casesignal.wordpress.com/2011/04/27/holly-bobo-whos-who/




(to my knowledge not the same one that called 911)



thank Capp, was going to ask if you new.


I found a listing for what could be Drew's brother but I would not venture to post it because we cannot be positive it is the same Scott family within the area. 


Drew's brother is Derek Scott.. if you read his post's on fb it says things like this: ready to go out in the mornin with my brother, dad, and real close friends. Hopin and prayin for Holly. And Drew is also on his fb page, and there are pictures of them together on Derek's fb page.

Tks, I was aware of that 2 weeks ago but didnt post their last name nor info on the pages because they were not speaking out publicly nor were they named by LE as POI's or otherwise.   My point was that looking up people in the white pages or other directory may lead to posting information about another Scott family that is not relevant to this case.   Also, generally theirs or anyone's personal info including phone numbers should not be posted.

Unless a reasonable explanation was provided to investigators in regards to Clint's changing accounts encompassing the alleged abduction of his sister ... unless Clint immediately submitted to and passed a polygraphy ... I cannot comprehend why two days following the disappearance of Holly ... in the process of elimination ... an official spokesperson for the investigation implied that Clint and Drew had been ruled out as persons of interest in the Hollow Bolo case.

What changed between April 15th and April 17th.  On April 17th ... in a press conference ... another official spokesperson implied the investigators had done a flip flop.

The officer said that neither Bobo's brother nor her boyfriend were suspects. "We are confident of that," he said.

But police have no leads to the identity of Bobo's abductor.

"There is not a person of interest at this time," he said.

O no, no need to apologize, you're right though others did bring out their last name...generally speaking that is the standard I go by unless parties come forward to speak on their own or they are named by LE, others feel differently but I'm more cautious not to give an innocent party grief they don't need.   The address, phone number part though is pretty standard.

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.

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

I speculate that maybe Clint's original story changed when he did not have an explantion regarding his lack of a meaningful reaction to his sister allegedly being dragged across the carport into the words.

This town is also not quick to turn on their own. So, my only trust in investigating is with TBI. The authorities there don't even have the knowledge or experience to deal with something like this, and depending on who's kin to who, they may not bother. So, it's great that TBI is involved.

I used to work in the system there, and have seen the primary investigator in action. It's sad.

I agree but ... the TBI does provide some hope the justice will prevail to Holly Hobo.

Considering my theory implies that Holly Bobo may have met her demise as a result of an implusive action ... an impulsive action that could not be taken back ... maybe someone with a conscience will come forward and confess all.

It has even crossed my mind that the low profile of Holly's brother and parents implies that a plea deal is happening behind the scenes ... a plea deal that will reveal the truth regarding the happenings on the morning of April 13th ... the morning Holly Bobo went missing.

IMO

I can only speak from a personal guideline that I set for myself which is unless a family member or friend connected to a case has put forward that they are speaking publicly or an individual is officially named as a POI by LE OR is already on public record for previous crimes (not rumored by the public) I dont post their personal information, opinions yes, info no.  In general, if someone unrelated to the case comments on an open public page or website I dont feel that is an evasion into privacy or aiding in implicating an innocent person that may turn out to be unmerited.   When posting something that others are discussing or making claims to having knowledge of that is not confirmed I usually write something like "rumor" or "unconfirmed."  I've always worked with confidential and sensitive information so I'm both ethically & morally sensitive to disseminating information publicly.  Everyone has their own personal gauge & each forum/website/page has their own rules & guidelines.

I don't know if this is true but rumor has it last Saturday officers were searching off of McCaney Mill Rd..

Well, they did say that they were in both Henderson & Decatur Counties so its entirely possible but not confirmed by LE.   Do you have a link where that was discussed?  Tks

Clint Bobo and Drew Scott are the only persons of interest in the Holly Bobo case who have been officially identified by a spokesperson for the investigation.

There are many images of Drew and Holly posted on this forum but ... none of Clint Bobo.  Why?

However ... those who have not been identified as persons of interest by investigators ... I believe that personal discretion should prevail when posting identification and images that are already out there in the public domain.

My theory implies that Drew was not involved in the events encompassing the disappearance of Holly.  Either Clint recognized Holly's long term boyfriend from behind as the alleged abductor or he didn't.  IMO ... there should have been no "I thought".

According to Helms (see above) ... the status did change from when Clint and Drew had been "previously ruled out".

Considering Clint's changing stories (Helm/Mehr) ... considering Clint did implicate Drew in one of his accounts (Mehr) and ... considering investigators who had previously ruled these two out as persons of interest have done a flip flop (Helm) ... it is a given that Holly's brother and boyfriend would not be given a pass in regards to speculation.

At this point in time ... my theory implies that there was no abduction.  In other words ... Drew was not a participant in the happenings encompassing the disappearance of Holly.

Blink ... if you believe otherwise ... I do not have a problem.  Until the official outcome is revealed ... the truth remains elusive.

As I stated to Eileen ... I am not made of stone.  It is not my desire that Holly's brother is implicated in his sister's disappearance but ... I am unable to more past what has been revealed by spokespersons for the investigation regarding Clint's changing stories.

Clint and Drew are absolutely never going to be POI in this case, and while I appreciate folks thinking outside of the box, and it is important to evaluate all angles, so is evaluating where the evidence leads even if it conflicts with an early theory.

I concur.    Clint never "implicated" Drew, all he stated is he "thought" or "assumed" (words can be semantic) that it naturally was her boyfriend until a few things led him to be alarmed & realized something was wrong.  Everyone is entitled to their opinions so that is not a slam toward anyone with an opposing thought but more about what I know to be true, despite it not made public yet.   I also agree with Blink that there are no POI's or suspects officially named at this time, the distinction is that no one (and that means no one) has been publicly announced as cleared either but that does not mean that they are to be considered official POI's or suspects...I threw my back out & Im in agony so I hope that made sense LOL

This is very sad! A beautiful young lady is missing. No one wants to think her brother or her boy friend would do anything ot hurt her.

I know LE does not owe us an explanation for why they are doing what they are doing nor do the Bobo's need to tell us whats going on.  But  for the public that wants to see this girl come home to her family the lack of any information has made them think things that maybe are not true and not one person has come forward to dispell any of the rumors thus making them more like truth! I hope that made some sense lol
My brain is fried on this case!

Honestly, CB has never spoke publically so how can fingers point at him?  How do we even know his story?  How can we even say his story changed since we really don't know what story he gave anyhow?

I look at other cases, namely Hailey Dunn, where BD's story has changed time and again and that shows a lot of guilt to me.  But how can anyone presume guilt on the brother when we in fact never heard from his own mouth the occurrences of the morning of April 13th?

I know people, are talking about how it went from dragged to led into the woods. But in Clint's defense, I am from Tennessee and sometimes we use the term drag or dragged, sometimes drug. By saying I had to drag so and so here, or I dragged them there. And it is not meant literally it is just the way we sometimes use that word. And also the media or whoever reported could have made the mistake, or changed the word. We really do not know what Clint said or what he saw for sure. I do know that he had nothing to do with it. And could you imagine how he is feeling at this time, I feel so terrible for all of them. Still holding out hope that something happens soon and that the disgusting creature that had something to do with this is brought to justice and Holly will be found and brought home soon.

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.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 16TH - SHE WALKED INTO THE WOODS; NOT FORCEFULLY DRAGGED

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

But Janet- you have never heard this kid utter a syllable.  Your speculations are built on assumption with no direct source.

You, me and we have no idea what he said, not directly, and I can tell you from experience, that I have reason to believe some indirect statements about his 911 call information and statement have everything to do with protecting a successful prosecution in this case.

As a point of reference, POI is not even a legal term, it is a media-created term.

JMO I don't think Drew or Clint are involved in the disappearance of Holly. Janet I can not answer why Clint has not come public but he could very well be distraught to come out in the public. Clint other sister has not come in the public light. Maybe there is a safety issue. Just speaking for myself if it was one of my children I would NOT want anyone of my other children in the public light..   

HER SISTER? She dosent have a sister. Where did u see that posted?

I seen a picture that was posted somewhere where it was a picture of Holly and a blond hair girl that had it was her sister.
When I have time I will look for it. I am only going by what the picture had said.

The "Investigative Spokespersons" have never once divulged Clint's statement.  Your relying on interpretations, and not even a live feed where one can see context.

Lastly, I am not speculating.  I completely respect that one can discount my opinion based on the fact I am not going to divulge sources.

I think it has gotten so commonplace to see the family of the one abducted exploited on television shows for the purpose of ratings and revenue that it looks unusual when a family actually does what LE suggests they do.

I do not think Holly's parents nor her brother nor any other real or non-existent family member had a thing to do with her disappearance. I also do not believe Holly herself was involved in her own abduction.

I do think they have been wisely advised to lay low and let LE deal with the situation. I personally think LE realizes that keeping the media interaction with the family at a minimum will better defuse the volatile situation.

Whatever the outcome, this precious family has been forever changed. Evil has pentrated their safe haven and their world has been forever altered.

I absolutely cannot even imagine that this family had any hand in what has befallen them. I also think as posters we are quite careful never to point fingers at others but it seems to me that it is becoming too commonplace to deny the victim's family this courtesy. It is hard for me to understand why it is acceptable to question the integrity of Holly's brother when nothing but parapharasing is out there to dissect. My word...haven't all of us at one time or another had someone change the wording of something we said? 

As for a Southern definition of dragging someone...it's a way we express getting someone to do something they are not too interested in doing...as in "I had to drag him to church on Sunday." What has become a focal word could mean no more than a cultural expression. For instance, if you're from the South, you'd understand that if I asked you if you wanted a coke, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you replied that you'd like a Dr. Pepper or Pepsi. Not too many years ago I would have asked if you wanted a cold drink...until my Northern uncle told me if I asked for one up North, they'd point me to a water fountain.

We have many differences.  Why, most of you consider macaroni and cheese as a meal or at least a pasta dish.  Around here, it's treated as a vegetable...as in a side dish along with the peas and such. Not many years ago I was at a Northern restaurant inquiring about the peas they had listed on their daily meat and three. The waitress looked at me as though I had sprouted another head and answered "green."  That type hadn't even crossed my mind because I was wondering if they were blackeyed or crowder or such.  Plus, green peas around here are called English peas.

It's not a matter of right or wrong. It's simply a matter of meaning and I do believe it's yet another case of misunderstanding our definition of words.  That doesn't bother me that someone doesn't understand but it does sting when there is no attempt made to understand. It's regional and it's dialect and it's semantics.  Let's not tarnish someone's reputation over word choice.

What needs to be taken into account is that this area is deeply wooded & hunting is a huge way of life, it has been turkey season with people up at the crack of dawn.  I would bet that if he felt a crime was being committed he would have went thru a wall of fire to get to his sister, it would be extremely rare for a guy in general, maybe not specific to southern boys not to.  To Clint, if he at a glance figured it was her boyfriend & it was hunting season it easily could have not alarmed him in the least.  They all go hunting together at times.  The area isnt one where you would anticipate a premeditated or even random crime to occur, its just not.  Look, my idea of hunting is looking for a sale of my favorite designers but after living down south for a few years I've come accustomed to a ton of people walking around in camo attire & talking about what else...hunting, well not always but often.  IMHO, he has absolutely nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about but yes he will go thru an enormous amount of anguish, being accused of harming his sister is going to make it even more unbearable.  My heart aches for the Bobo family & Drew along with his as well.

I'm not going to waste any more time expressing this any more adamant than I have already based on what I know & from what Blink has indicated she has knowledge of from reliable inside sources...Clint nor Drew are responsible for what happened to Holly.   Everyone is entitled to their opinions so don't take that the wrong way, but Ill leave it at that for when the truth becomes known to everyone.   I know it is difficult not to have answers, I dont have them all either & in some cases I have no inside knowledge along with you, its tough & painful to watch the weeks go by.   Maybe its the pain pills kicking in but all I'm left with is just wanting to extend a hug to everyone & say, hang in there.

Tenn. police search for Holly Bobo continues

(CBS/WREG/AP) PARSONS, Tenn. - Police reportedly spent Sunday continuing to follow leads in the search for Holly Bobo, the missing 20-year-old nursing student.

John Mehr, special agent with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, told the Jackson Sun that investigators continue to look further into the case.

While police initially believed an abductor dragged Bobo away as she left home for school nearly three weeks ago, investigators now suspect it was a community member in camouflage who led Bobo into the woods near her home. ::snipping2::

I am in touch with several insiders to this case, and that would include family.

Clint and Drew are absolutely never going to be POI in this case, and while I appreciate folks thinking outside of the box, and it is important to evaluate all angles, so is evaluating where the evidence leads even if it conflicts with an early theory.

Again respectfully, wouldn't one have to actually speak publicly twice to determine if in fact any statements changed?

Anything else would be subjective opinions based on someone else's interpretation
I cannot imagine what this family is going through and the speculation regarding Clint and Drew must be adding to the hell they're already experiencing.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 27TH - THERE WAS SOME MISCOMMUNICATION

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

I'm with you on this.  I live in N. rural FL and the Bobo situation of that morning would absolutely be normal but what I was intending to describe was what her bro must be feeling.  I'll bet he feels like he is the reason his sis is in trouble.  I think I was also wondering about the real happenings of that morning and was he closer to that crime and maybe threatenend or really just did see her walking away in the distance.  I'm just nosey and would have been too inquisitive to not ask where she was going.  I'm also in the medical field and my mind goes instantly to "I wonder if that person needs help"?

I totally understand what you are saying.  Im going to attempt to be a tad humorous with no intention of being offensive to the situation or men in general BUT....how many nosey men do we each know personally?   It is not a common mechanism men possess & more often can be heard ribbing women for being just that, nosey.

I think it has gotten so commonplace to see the family of the one abducted exploited on television shows for the purpose of ratings and revenue that it looks unusual when a family actually does what LE suggests they do.

I do not think Holly's parents nor her brother nor any other real or non-existent family member had a thing to do with her disappearance. I also do not believe Holly herself was involved in her own abduction.

I do think they have been wisely advised to lay low and let LE deal with the situation. I personally think LE realizes that keeping the media interaction with the family at a minimum will better defuse the volatile situation.

Whatever the outcome, this precious family has been forever changed. Evil has pentrated their safe haven and their world has been forever altered.

I absolutely cannot even imagine that this family had any hand in what has befallen them. I also think as posters we are quite careful never to point fingers at others but it seems to me that it is becoming too commonplace to deny the victim's family this courtesy. It is hard for me to understand why it is acceptable to question the integrity of Holly's brother when nothing but parapharasing is out there to dissect. My word...haven't all of us at one time or another had someone change the wording of something we said? 

As for a Southern definition of dragging someone...it's a way we express getting someone to do something they are not too interested in doing...as in "I had to drag him to church on Sunday." What has become a focal word could mean no more than a cultural expression. For instance, if you're from the South, you'd understand that if I asked you if you wanted a coke, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you replied that you'd like a Dr. Pepper or Pepsi. Not too many years ago I would have asked if you wanted a cold drink...until my Northern uncle told me if I asked for one up North, they'd point me to a water fountain.

We have many differences.  Why, most of you consider macaroni and cheese as a meal or at least a pasta dish.  Around here, it's treated as a vegetable...as in a side dish along with the peas and such. Not many years ago I was at a Northern restaurant inquiring about the peas they had listed on their daily meat and three. The waitress looked at me as though I had sprouted another head and answered "green."  That type hadn't even crossed my mind because I was wondering if they were blackeyed or crowder or such.  Plus, green peas around here are called English peas.

It's not a matter of right or wrong. It's simply a matter of meaning and I do believe it's yet another case of misunderstanding our definition of words.  That doesn't bother me that someone doesn't understand but it does sting when there is no attempt made to understand. It's regional and it's dialect and it's semantics.  Let's not tarnish someone's reputation over word choice.     





TOY - TY

I so relate to your Southern definitions - semantics are "everything" when people from all over the country are trying to discern what every word means.

I have lived my entire life in the South and Toy's definitions are spot on!  How many times have I heard "I had to drag him to Church"!  ha

Clint is a young man - "drag" could very well be part of his vernacular in everyday life.  Seeing someone holding on someone's arm while walking away could very well come out as "dragging away" in his area of the country.

Now...we've not heard Clint speak.
We've heard "others" interpret Clint's words.
The interpretations have come out as seemingly different stories.
We are left to our own interpretations of the interpretations by others.
The word dragged: do we take it as a literal meaning?

drag/drag/
Verb: Pull (someone or something) along forcefully, roughly, or with difficulty.
Noun: The action of pulling something forcefully or with difficulty: "the drag of the current".  More »
Dictionary.com - Answers.com - Merriam-Webster - The Free Dictionary

Or do we interpret that Holly was led away by the arm? 

We cannot interpret "others" intrepretations.

If we do, we're incorrect because it's just another intrepretation.

We have to see and hear Clint, himself, talk to make the correct intrepretation.  And, most likely, would have to question him to get an accurate understanding of what he really means.


Now...again...while I have uptmost respect for SM posters who have "more knowledge" than the rest of us and who are on the scene and have much greater understanding of the happenings - the truth is that when you report to us it is your "interpretations of what you've seen and heard", as you cannot tell us more or can't disclose more, etc.

I read with interest every word of what you have to say and can't wait for the next post.

Posters are left to intrepret people's interpretations who have knowledge they can't post; just like posters are left to intrepret the interpretations of others about what Clint has said.

In addition, need to factor in the semantics used in the South and what the actual meanings may be that are made by a young man who has probably never had any experience with anything like this in his life and wouldn't know that he must "think" before he speaks because every word will be sliced and diced with the precision of using a scapel.

In other words, we all have our thoughts based on what we encounter about this case - all the different opinions are what makes this forum work, by promoting new thoughts and sleuthing and questioning.

It's okay whether we take the "interpretations" of others as to what Clint said as truth or more reason to question.

It's okay whether we take the "interpretations" of others as to what they say they know but can't tell us as to being the truth or more reason to question.

All of our questions and thoughts are okay - until the day we learn the truth - proof positive.

It's all good.

My 2 cents....

It appears the word "attempted" is being used because it is unclear to the public what has transpired but I cannot speak for the blog author.

Still...I do think that secrecy fuels rumors. 

When an investigation appears to be open and upfront - folks follow eagerly and honestly try to find out where the victim is.

The instant it's apparent that things are being held back or there's some secrecy veiling and investigation, then the "speculations" start; i.e., what's really going on, wonder what they're hiding, do they have a suspect in mind, etc.

When LE has things that should be kept close to the vest to protect the investigation - I think we all understand.

If there are miscommunications and it's not harmful to the case to clear them up...then they should be cleared up and not sloughed off as not having the exact wording with you.  Obviously, it's harmful to the case to "miscommunicate" to being with and then act with dismissal when the public is asking for the truth.  Miscommunicate out of the gate (irresponsible) and to fluff off questions about miscommunication (irresponsible) = Two wrongs don't make a right.

Totally agree with you Toy.  Being from the rural South, I can identify with all you have written.  Sure, I'd like to know ALL they know, but I also want Holly to be found. 

I feel they know or have some idea of who - but will have to be very careful less that person is tipped off.  I got a feeling the "Good Ole Boy" club could be in full force, and TBI is not only dealing with finding evidence concerning Holly, but also they are well aware of how things work and are tip-toeing around it in order to gather what they need for an arrest.

Hobby Bobo is my focus.  At least I do attempt to back up what I perceive as unclarified inconsistences/miscommunications in the reporting by TBI regarding the happenings encompassing the alleged abduction.

There was only one alleged witness.  TBI investigators were not present.  The changing stories could have only come from one source.

Until the changing stories which were reported by TBI spokespersons are officially clarified ... I have my doubts that an abduction ever happened.

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.

TBI SPOKESPERSON: APRIL 27TH - THERE WAS SOME MISCOMMUNICATION

Holly Bobo Abduction: 2-week-wrap-up; rumors dispelled; next steps
April 27th, 2011 12:32 pm ET


<snipped>

“Dragged” or “led” into the woods

There has been some confusion regarding how the case was initially reported.

Initially law enforcement stated Holly was last seen being “dragged” into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage clothing.

They later changed the wording to Holly was “led” into the woods.

This spurred online attacks against Holly’s brother, Clint Bobo, who was the last person to see her as she was being led into the woods.

Some questioned whether Clint changed his story, if media misreported, or if there was a miscommunication from law enforcement.

Asked where the confusion came, Helm said, “I don't have Clint's statements in front of me to be able to tell you exactly what he said.

“I can tell you that there was some miscommunication,” Helm said.

Does anyone know - has it been made public by TBI - that Clint was not involved in his sister's disappearance

Personally, I don't think he is guilty of anything - but that's my opinion.

In my neck of the woods, "Holly being dragged into the woods" is different than "Holly being drug across the driveway".  Being dragged somewhere can mean "reluctantly going".  Being "drug across the driveway" would likely mean literally drug across the driveway.

Two days following Kristen Helm's official media release (above) ... a media release that implied a violent abduction of Holly Bobo ... an entirely different account emerges by another spokesperson for the investigation.

Could it be that the original account "drug across the carport" created questions as to Clint's lack of response to a violation against his sister?  Could it be that the original account "drug across the carport" did not explain the time difference between the a neighbor contacting 911 upon hearing a scream and Clint's call to 911.

TBI SPOKESPERSON:  SHE WALKED INTO THE WOODS; NOT FORCEFULLY DRAGGED

Holly Bobo ‘In Fear of Her Life’
April 16, 2011


Holly Bobo, 20, was confronted Wednesday by a man in hunting camouflage who forced her to go with him into the woods, said John Mehr, spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

“What we believe, and I’ll tell you he actually had an arm holding her and so we feel that she knew that she was in fear of her life so she was complying with his commands,” he told a news conference.

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 Pasrons, Tenn. home.

Bobo’s 25-year-old brother Clint watched from inside the home, but did not believe she was being abducted until later. He saw the stranger from behind and believed it was his sister’s boyfriend.

Her brother, said Mehr, “had reasons to believe [the man] was not an attacker,” and did not call 911 until he saw blood outside.

This is just Janet's thing. She does it often (posting reports and making comments, etc). I don't think she's trying to be rude or anything. Janet's been on this board for a long time, and her focus is always to find the answer to help bring a loved one home and/or bring to justice those who caused harm. She's just refreshing our memories and making her points clear. That's all. :)

Janet-

not to be rude but is it really nescessary to continue copying and pasting the same media articles that were mis worded?  clint is not a poi, and was not involved in his sister's disapperance.  i don't see what continuing to post this does to further discuss the case other than possibly adding extra undo pain to the family?

Sunshine

Hobby Bobo is my focus.  At least I do attempt to back up what I perceive as unclarified inconsistences/miscommunications in the reporting by TBI regarding the happenings encompassing the alleged abduction.

There was only one alleged witness.  TBI investigators were not present.  The changing stories could have only come from one source.

Until the changing stories which were reported by TBI spokespersons are officially clarified ... I have my doubts that an abduction ever happened.

I agree and forget and like to keep reminded of what was said..and when.

I believe she was dragged and screaming. I also believe Clint is in fear of his life. Maybe more happened than we know. Something very bad is happening we don't know about is my feeling that has do do with revenge, drugs maybe. Maybe Clint is being blackmailed. Maybe evidence was planted to frame someone.
does anyone know if the Attorney General called in TBI? If not its prob tied in with drugs is my thought re how TBI got involved so fast.

Puzzler-

There has been no official "clearing" of anyone in this case, and frankly, LE does that publicly almost never anymore.

One of the biggest reasons is that criminal defense attorneys LOVE to use as their defense, and also to get criminal evidence thrown out, is the "You never did anything but investigate my client from the beginning and did not focus on other possible suspects."

I agree with some that it does appear on the surface that LE has been shutting out the public, and scaled back.

I personally believe it is because they have suspect(s) and as a result some idea where to search.

If they did not, and were not launching a dialogue with the public to progress leads, I will be the first person on the horn to them.

Again, this is in the prepatory prosecutorial phase, imo.

Missing Tennessee student's family asks public to search their property
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS   
First Posted: May 03, 2011 - 1:40 pm
Last Updated: May 03, 2011 - 1:40 pm
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The family of missing nursing student Holly Bobo is pleading with people to search their property in an effort to find the woman who is believed to have been abducted outside her Tennessee home by a man dressed in camouflage.

The family released the plea in a statement sent to the media on Tuesday, nearly three weeks after Holly Bobo's April 13 disappearance.

Investigators have said they believe the student was abducted by someone familiar with the rural area outside her home near Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

Post by: Kimmy53 on May 03, 2011, 02:46:31 PM
It is my thought that they have had an idea about who this may be from the beginning.  Clint saw the person and thought it was the boyfriend.  Do we know Clint saw this person from behind?  From the side?  I feel like Clint has been able to give details about this person and the TBI / LE are purposely having him lie low.

I know especially if you grow up with someone, or are around someone alot, you notice how they walk, their gait, manorisms etc.   I wonder if this could be the case? 

I'd love to hear results from the blood.  I am okay with not knowing if it means the perp gets caught.

Just some thoughts.....

Ive said all along that there is strategic reasoning behind the silence...not purposefully keeping info from the public although it appears that way.  Some of us are familiar with different circumstances in certain cases as well as different approaches LE take given what is before them, if I felt there was any "shoddy" or "irresponsible" police work being done in this case, knowing me I'd state that opinion, FWIW.

But this wasnt some casual thing that happend... You tell what u see its a visual thing.
clint probably called 911 said i saw some guy dragg my sister into the woods
after LE came and he told them the same thing maybe they said well why didnt you call when u saw it.

But why would Clint say  he thought it was her bf if she was dragged in to the woods
makes no sense.

Yes, you did LOL but no one in the public knows for certain what Clint's exact words were or if he said something meaning it in a common way known to the region, firsthand.  LE does but that doesnt necessarily mean that that they deem it vital to correct it beyond what they have stated already, albeit difficult to wait for answers.

Ok but .....LOL    I think LE can only say what was told to them by the witness.
if ya notice they  all just repeat the same thing over and over every time they are asked about it it never changes!  Then low and behold one day it CHANGES lol
and it was a huge change   Dragged and Led are two diff things completely. and it threw this case into rumor purgatory. LOL

If the changing stories of Clint Bobo does not imply "probable cause" ... I can only assume when you consider today's outreach ... Holly's parents would not have objected?

I am shocked that in the process of elimination ... it is obvious that investigators have embraced Clint's words as gospel ... the words of the only witness to the alleged abduction of Holly Bobo.

I dont necessarily think Clint had a role in Holly's disappearance, but there are some circumstances that I find curious.

* I would not have thought of conflicting versions re: led/dragged....because I have pictured a man on her arm, forcefully leading....that seems to cover "led" and "dragged" IMO. 

*YET...it seems LE has made a big deal to change the characterization of this, more than once......home invasion, abduction, ...and also emphasizing and clarifying the "led/dragged".....and specifically mentioning "community member".....seems to be an awful lot of semantic reposturing

*Since Clint said he thought it was her BF, that also reinforced a guy on her arm, forcefully leading.  ( a stranger might would not be touching her, if it was a harmless situation)

* What is concerning, is that he thought it was her BF...someone I would expect him to be familiar with, and would expect him to recognize his gait, walk, posture, body shape....even if it was from behind, and the perp was all in camo.  I know my friends, even from behind and far away....weird that he could get this wrong...or was he?

* How many BF's and ex BF's did holly have?  Was there an ex? 2 exes?  Did one have a violent history or have a restraining order on him ?

* Why have we not seen any pics of Clint?  I get that the family wants to keep a low profile (further evidence to me that they already know who the perp is)....but it is still uncharacteristic to have the family almost hidden from the public, Clint in particular.

I am sure that LE knows who the perp is......I just hope they get the evidence they need, sooner than later.

IMO - Janet very skillfully collects important points of information - she has done this over many years and covering many different threads on Scared Monkeys.

We often look to Janet to provide us with supporting information...especially, as time passes (i.e., Natalee Holloway's thread). 

Personally, I'm thankful to Janet for doing this - it's a big job and she's been very reliable and steadfast. 

As we're only human, and prone to forget over time or get our words mixed up with a flurry of information, it's good to re-read over and over what "actually has been produced" to the public. 

Thank you, Janet.

PARSONS, Tenn. — The family of a missing nursing student who police believe was abducted by a man dressed in camouflage is pleading with people to search their property in an effort to find her.

The family released the plea in a statement sent to the media Tuesday, nearly three weeks after Holly Bobo's April 13 disappearance.

"Please continue to pray for Holly's safe return," the statement said. "Keep your eyes and ears open, and search your own property."

If the changing stories of Clint Bobo does not imply "probable cause" ... I can only assume when you consider today's outreach ... Holly's parents would not have objected?

I am shocked that in the process of elimination ... it is obvious that investigators have embraced Clint's words as gospel ... the words of the only witness to the alleged abduction of Holly Bobo.

Janet





Now this is just my person opinion and thoughts on this. But i think they will find
Holly right there Probably where she screamed.... I think they should get back closer to home I honestly dont think he took her far!

This is just Janet's thing. She does it often (posting reports and making comments, etc). I don't think she's trying to be rude or anything. Janet's been on this board for a long time, and her focus is always to find the answer to help bring a loved one home and/or bring to justice those who caused harm. She's just refreshing our memories and making her points clear. That's all. :)

Janet-

why are you assuming that the Bobo home and property was not searched thoroughly and immediately?


Yes Capp is right.  The mobile Forensics unit was parked along the driveway and road for days so they could field test from there.

k9 evidence, 3 different bloodhounds, lost Holly's sent near a clearing where they recovered tire tracks, and additional evidence not released to the public was recovered.

Their is a deputy stationed there 24/7 at the moment, and I can tell you as an absolute fact that the areas that are being searched are a priority based on intelligence, not hope or whim.

This family is of very meager means in comparison to many folks in this community, they are at the complete mercy of the TBI and Sheriff Wyatt right now waiting to come and tell them that their daughter has been located, and imo, not alive.

In the alternative, they are waiting to be told what monster (s) they have lived near all their lives has harmed their child.

I am in no way being disrespectful to other's opinions, but this is the reality of the situation.

I emailed Kristen Helm regarding Karen and Dana's request for assistance from community members to search their property.  I received an immediate reply.

Although not specific ... the implication was that the Bobo property was searched by "the Violent Crimes Response Team" on the morning of Holly's disappearance as well as evidence was collected and processed.  That's it.

Helm's response to my query was appreciated but ... I am skeptical.  The Bobo's property is huge.

my 2 cents...I do not think that brother Clint had anything to do with Holly's disappearance but I do think that everyone, especially the last known person who saw Holly needs to be looked at just like every other person in a missing person's case...then everyone can be cleared and there won't be any suspicion jmo....We do and say this in other missing person's thread, why not this one? just curious....

I agree with Stayhomemommy, Cookie and Puzzler, Janet always searches for the truth and I appreciate her reminders.

I will say however that if Capp and Blink say the home was searched then it was.  It wouldn't make sense for the home NOT to be searched and I'm 100% certain it was even though there hasn't been reporting on it.  I know when I looked at the info on the Bobo home on Trulia I was surprised at what a small home it was.

So when Holly's Mom got the call about Holly's cell phone TBI  or some form of LE was there?

Is it practical to assume that the family's individual phones are tapped ? 

Is it probable that the call was made from Holly's own phone?

Puzzler-

There has been no official "clearing" of anyone in this case, and frankly, LE does that publicly almost never anymore.

One of the biggest reasons is that criminal defense attorneys LOVE to use as their defense, and also to get criminal evidence thrown out, is the "You never did anything but investigate my client from the beginning and did not focus on other possible suspects."

I agree with some that it does appear on the surface that LE has been shutting out the public, and scaled back.

I personally believe it is because they have suspect(s) and as a result some idea where to search.

If they did not, and were not launching a dialogue with the public to progress leads, I will be the first person on the horn to them.

Again, this is in the prepatory prosecutorial phase, imo.

Blink - TY

Here's hoping that you're correct that LE has a suspect; I hope they're honing in on him.

does anyone know if the Attorney General called in TBI? If not its prob tied in with drugs is my thought re how TBI got involved so fast.

Since we've heard that Clint was in the house and heard Holly scream and looked outside and saw her being led to the "woods", I would love to know if LE asked Clint why he didn't go outside or open a window and yell after Holly (maybe scare away a perp).

I know people react differently, and even though I keep saying Clint is young...he's not that young - 25 - so I would like to know the reason why he didn't think too much about the scream - only after he saw blood outside.

Also, I asked this before with no response (so maybe no one recalls), but I seem to remember reading that the brother saw "flecks" of blood.  Doe's anyone else remember the word "flecks" being used?  TIA

Missing Tennessee student's family asks public to search their property
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS   
First Posted: May 03, 2011 - 1:40 pm
Last Updated: May 03, 2011 - 1:40 pm
 

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The family of missing nursing student Holly Bobo is pleading with people to search their property in an effort to find the woman who is believed to have been abducted outside her Tennessee home by a man dressed in camouflage.

The family released the plea in a statement sent to the media on Tuesday, nearly three weeks after Holly Bobo's April 13 disappearance.

Investigators have said they believe the student was abducted by someone familiar with the rural area outside her home near Parsons, about 100 miles northeast of Memphis.

I do believe that I interpreted the plea of the Bobo's all wrong.  It was my understanding that Karen and Dana wrtr requesting assistance to search the Bobo property.  The request for community member to search their own respective properties makes sense.

Puzzler..I do remember "flecks" of blood..

Cookie - TY

Well, I've wondered about that a lot. 

Flecks, as I would interpret it would mean "flecks of dried blood". 

But how would the blood have dried enough by the time Clint went outside to have become "flecks"?

Is this another semantic "thing"?

Not drops of blood or blood spatter or smeared blood - but "flecks" of blood?

I remember  the flecks as well, but unfortunately I don't remember where I read it. 

By the word flecks - do you take that as small droplets?  Dried "flakes"? It was obviously enough to test....

Janet-

why are you assuming that the Bobo home and property was not searched thoroughly and immediately?

Today's outreach by Holly's parents ... an outreach requesting members of the community to assist in a search of their property ... was the foundation of my doubts whether an official search ever happened.

Anyways ... the email response I received from Kristen Helm a short time ago "indicates" that a search of the Bobo property took place on the morning when Holly went missing.

Janet

Janet, I admire you checking out your own information.  Upthread I confirmed what Ms. Helms also seemed to tell you.

However, I just want to point out that at no time did the BOBO's ask others to search THEIR Property.

The simply asked residents to search their OWN homesteads.  That is common practice at this point in a mp investigation.

I am also sure that they know that some may have not allowed permission to have their properties searched, and they probably would like to let them know they are aware, in a casual way.

It's a prudent practice to ask the community to search their properties in rural areas.  I believe the Polly Klass case was cracked when someone found tights or some articles of clothing on her property that did not belong there.

A's Fever

I do believe that I interpreted the plea of the Bobo's all wrong.  It was my understanding that Karen and Dana wrtr requesting assistance to search the Bobo property.  The request for community member to search their own respective properties makes sense.

Thanks!  I am embrarrassed.

Janet



That is what I tried to explain in this post to you Janet:


Quote from: Tamikosmom on May 03, 2011, 01:32:05 PM
I cannot comprehend why the Bobo property was not a focus of the official search effort from the getgo.

Janet


Janet, the article doesnt say that the request was made for the Bobo property to be searched, the family is requesting the community to search THEIR OWN PROPERTIES.   In other words, private property & where searches cannot search & LE can only search with probable cause.


Nothing to be embarrassed about at all.

Also, just so you know I've already over the course of this case shared what I could with everyone but will not share what I feel would be inappropriate.   I'm not stating that I have ALL knowledge but I am privy to some but am using discretion.    Bottom line, we all want this SOB caught & brought to justice.

I have no problem with you posting the photo of Clint.  Even though I don't think he is responsible for Holly missing he was the last person to see her.  It will help too if we are looking through photos of Holly with people if we know who is who.

By suspects, do you mean that LE has discussed or just random people that everyone calls into question that may have nothing whatsoever to do with what happened to Holly?   Its a balancing act & one that should have certain considerations.

One of the things that has seemed unsettling to me, is that Clint *thought* the person with Holly was her BF.

Im still not really clear whether Drew was a current BF or ex, or if there was another ex who Holly had a restraining order against.....but anyways....

It seems that even from behind, and in camo, that Clint would *know* the BF's mannerisms, walk, body size, etc.  It has been odd to me that he would make a wrong ID on someone he knows.

Now that I see that Drew has a brother, roughly the same size.....it makes me wonder if they walk/move/look alike from behind.

Not meaning to cast suspicions on anyone, however, until the perp is caught, it's wise to consider everyone

Actually, no its not.   There is no reason whatsoever to now call into question Drew's brother.   All I can do is state it one more time, Clint, Drew and now Derek will NOT be POI's or suspects in this case.

I disagree....of course LE would be wise to consider all "community members", expecially those that knew Holly and fit the description of her BF (they have already said it would likely be someone that knew her family schedule, and the BF was identified...perhaps wrongly)

You may know that they have ruled him out, and that is fantastic......but that doesnt change that he is someone that would have/should have been checked out.

And since I dont know you, quite honestly, you can keep repeating yourself and it really doesnt change my thoughts that this is someone that should have been considered.

Marina, this isnt about me or anyone on this forum, but it is about two families suffering right now because Holly is missing, feared worse.  You may not "know" me but I've tried to provide information I have without compromising the case.   For those that choose to ignore it, they are welcome to but I hate to see innocent people being implicated with no merit.

Well...that Clint thought it was a boyfriend - narrows the potentials greatly - the perp is not a woman of any age nor it is an older man or young boy...so it would be a white male (older teen to middleage) - I'm thinking that even "middleage" could be crossed off the list.

One of the things that has seemed unsettling to me, is that Clint *thought* the person with Holly was her BF.

Im still not really clear whether Drew was a current BF or ex, or if there was another ex who Holly had a restraining order against.....but anyways....

It seems that even from behind, and in camo, that Clint would *know* the BF's mannerisms, walk, body size, etc.  It has been odd to me that he would make a wrong ID on someone he knows.

Actually, no its not.   There is no reason whatsoever to now call into question Drew's brother.   All I can do is state it one more time, Clint, Drew and now Derek will NOT be POI's or suspects in this case.

I disagree....of course LE would be wise to consider all "community members", expecially those that knew Holly and fit the description of her BF (they have already said it would likely be someone that knew her family schedule, and the BF was identified...perhaps wrongly)

You may know that they have ruled him out, and that is fantastic......but that doesnt change that he is someone that would have/should have been checked out.

And since I dont know you, quite honestly, you can keep repeating yourself and it really doesnt change my thoughts that this is someone that should have been considered.

Marina, this isnt about me or anyone on this forum, but it is about two families suffering right now because Holly is missing, feared worse.  You may not "know" me but I've tried to provide information I have without compromising the case.   For those that choose to ignore it, they are welcome to but I hate to see innocent people being implicated with no merit.

I am not implicating anyone.  I am looking at a case objectively, that thus far, has had no suspect arrested.  I am merely commenting on who I think should have been looked at......

You stated that, "all you can do is state"...and you can keep stating if you want....but as an objective bystander, Im still stating what I think is obvious. 

This isnt personal, but perhaps you are taking it as such.

Sorry about posting before writing any words...h ::MonkeyWink::

Capp - if I'm intrepretating you correctly - you're inferring that you have been informed by some "official LE" that Clint, Dred and Derek will NOT be POI's (not a legal term) or suspects in this case. 

Am I interpretating you correctly?

I think that since no one has been officially ruled out, everyone close to this case needs to be looked at...jmo..doesn't mean that I think any of these folks are guilty of anything, but one never knows right? weirder things have happened in cases..

did the abductor have a hat on? otherwise are we certain that it was NOT a female? a jealous woman for some reason?

I am in touch with several insiders to this case, and that would include family.

Clint and Drew are absolutely never going to be POI in this case, and while I appreciate folks thinking outside of the box, and it is important to evaluate all angles, so is evaluating where the evidence leads even if it conflicts with an early theory.

Again respectfully, wouldn't one have to actually speak publicly twice to determine if in fact any statements changed?

Anything else would be subjective opinions based on someone else's interpretation

Puzzler

Both Blink and Capp have taken a firm position that implies Drew and Clint are not involved in wrongdoing encompassing the disappearance of Holly and ... the implication is that they are in the know.

I have documented (over and over again) that Clint's changing stories revealed by TBI investigators causes me to speculate that the abduction of Holly never happened.  In other words ... the possibility of Drew's involvement is a non-issue.

However ... for now ... I am giving Blink and Capp the benefit of the doubt that inside information they claim to possess directs suspicion away from Holly's brother and boyfriend.

I suppose the lack of national media attention in this case is the idea that it was someone from within the community, or perhaps simply the lack of any outgoing info from LE. I am at a loss, because as others have mentioned, usually parents are pleading on TV. So, I really do think there's something up with that. What, I don't know. Is LE is letting them in on info? Maybe LE told them not to go on TV for whatever reason? Perhaps they're hiding something (I doubt this, but it's still a possibility.) Anyway, the list of possibilities is long. I just hope this case breaks soon. <sigh>
