According to Nashville’s CBS-TV affiliate WTVF NewsChannel5, the cousin of country singer Whitney Duncan, was dragged from a carport, in what appeared to be a home invasion. It happened around 7:30 am, on Wednesday (April 13).
The victim’s brother witnessed a man dressed in camouflage, drag victim Holly Bobo from a carport to a wooded area near by.
Holly was preparing to leave from her home in Darden, Tennessee, for a nursing class at the University of Tennessee Martin.
Last night, Whitney made requests for prayers for Holly’s safety on her Facebook page and Twitter account. There are so many posts, that friends have requested that posts be limited and not about faults of the media and people involved.
Holly is 20 years old, 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt and light blue jeans.
* The look for Holly is still ongoing and other than her lunchbox, investigators are not releasing much information about evidence located in the woods. Reports of blood stains located in the carport are being tested and nobody has been eliminated as a suspect. A reward for Holly has reached $75,000.
Investigators have asked, if you see Holly or anything suspicious to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
** On September 8th, 2014, investigators confirmed that a Human skull located by two men near the last known home of Holly Bobo, was identified as her. The remains were found Decatur County town of Parsons, Tennessee.
Jason Autry has been arrested for Kidnapping and Murder.
Two Brothers; Mark Pearcy and Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy have been arrested for tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact.
All three arrestees have pled not guilty for the alleged crimes.
