Why is the Holly Bobo abduction getting so little coverage?


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.

What is needed is national investigative shows that cover abductions, murders, kidnappings, and other major crimes to devote a segment on Holly – daily if possible, to help solve the case and bring Holly back home to her family. The whole show does not need to be dedicated to Holly´s abduction – sometimes just a time slice to keep the case active in our minds.

The good thing is that there are such shows in existence and they both are on CNN Headline News and they broadcast in prime time – so what is the problem here?

Why is this case not being covered on these programs over and over until Holly is found?

The names of these two shows are the Nancy Grace show and Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell. Both of these shows focus on major crimes. Both have been helpful in solving major cases. People frequently call into both shows with questions, concerns, and suggestions as to what law enforcement might do to solve cases.

A few months ago a young girl went missing in the south eastern part of our country and after her face and the face of her abductor were shown repeatedly on the Nancy Grace show, the pair was observed in a store in California, of all places, and a clerk called it in and the young girl was safely returned to her family and the abductor was arrested.

Sounds like a fairy tale doesn´t it, but the reality of it is that keeping a crime active in the media sometimes helps solve cases.

On Thursday, April 21st, Deborah Norville was guest hosting the Nancy Grace show and that was when I first found out about Holly´s abduction. I was moved by the specifics – a beautiful young vibrant college age girl – abducted from her own driveway while she was getting ready to get in her car to drive to classes. It was reported that her brother witnessed the event from a window overlooking the driveway. At the time, he did not realize that it was an abduction but when he did realize something appeared wrong, he called authorities and search efforts began.

Deborah Norville dedicated the entire show to Holly. There were law enforcement and other crime specialists that gave their opinions on various aspects of the abduction. Aerial views of the Holly´s house and the surrounding dense woods were shown repeatedly during the show. With all the coverage it seemed like a speedy resolution would happen and Holly would be safely returned.

Unfortunately, the case has not been solved and that is the last coverage we have seen on the Nancy Grace show. Why? Why has the Nancy Grace show decided to not dedicate not even another minute to keeping this case in the minds of the viewing public? Why has she decided to not even put up a screen with a photo of Holly and details about what numbers to call if you have any information? There are volunteers manning tip lines waiting for that one call that will crack this case and for that call to be made requires shows like “Nancy Grace” and “Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell” keeping the public aware that Holly is still missing and may still be alive.

Nancy and Jane both draw on the sensational, they thrive on asking very probing, if not embarrassing questions to guests, victims and family members of victims in their effort to both help solve cases as well as boost their ratings.

For the past week the Nancy Grace show has covered other abductions and missing individuals under suspicious circumstances – but surely, she could have dedicated even one minute to the specifics surrounding Holly´s abduction.

There are several reasons I believe Nancy and Jane are not dedicating any time to this case.

1. From what I understand, the Bobo family has either been directed to NOT to talk to anyone in the media or is choosing to not talk to the media. Both Nancy and Jane thrive on asking very pointed questions of family and friends of victims as well as to persons of interest or potential suspects. With no one to talk to or even to badger, these two ladies are consciously choosing to not keep this case alive. They are choosing to NOT show important information such as a tip line or a list of specifics surrounding a case to focus more on the sensationalism they are both noted for.

2. Also, TBI is not revealing any evidence or information that might keep this case alive. Anything and everything that has been found is being kept from public scrutiny, supposedly in an effort to help track down the kidnapper(s). I find this ridiculous. Surely, something could be released that would not compromise the investigation. TBI and other agencies involved in this case have an inherent responsibility to keep the public in the loop on this case. Even if bits and pieces are spoon fed to the public, they keep the public involved and the case itself “alive”. People care and want to be involved – just watching an update on television makes people feel they are part of the investigation – and with that they might spread the word to friends and that dialogue could lead to a speedy resolution in the case or even a breakthrough. People want to be involved.

From what I understand, blood samples were found in the yard. If some of the blood or all of the blood samples belong to Holly, that could be released without compromising the case. Also, releasing the recorded 9-11 call would help as well. Too many people are focusing on issues regarding Holly´s brother and releasing the call or even releasing timeline information would appease all who are starving for some information regarding the case.

In my estimation, TBI is doing an injustice to Holly and her family by not keeping the public involved.

So, what is one to do now? I have an answer. I suggest that every Tennessean or better yet, everyone reading this blog, who cares about this case either call the Headline News Network and tell them that they want more coverage on the Holly Bobo abduction. If you are not so inclined to make calls like that, then get on the Internet and log on to CNN´s Headline News Network´s website and leave a written message asking that they be more proactive on both Nancy´s and Jane´s shows. These shows have 800 numbers – use them. If you cannot find a 800 number, then instead of getting your next Starbucks coffee, use that money to make a toll call. If it leads to Holl’s return, that is money well spent.

Jane Velez-Mitchell claims that there is a war against women and she is their flag bearer – she is the one who says she is there to help bring an awareness to everyone regarding what each person can do to stop all this violence. Well, Jane, this is your chance to put your words to work. Cover this story. If Nancy will not cover it, then you MUST. If neither of you will cover it, then why are you on the air making the big bucks and don’t care enough to keep this story alive. Jane, you have not covered this story at all. WHY?

Unfortunately, neither of these women, Nancy or Jane, will provide more coverage to this story unless YOU, yes YOU, do something to make them cover this story.

Everyone who has gotten this far in this blog must care about Holly and her abduction – and now is the time for you to show just how much you care. Here is the link to CNN´s Headline News Website. Click on it, go there, navigate to both shows and leave your concerns.

http://www.cnn.com/HLN/

Click on Nancy´s image on the top of the page to get to Nancy´s Blog and Facebook links. Go to either and follow the instructions to leave a message, text, twitter, tweet, or whatever – Just Do It – Holly´s life and resolution to this crime may depend on it.

If you want to write Jane, scroll down below the photos on the top of the Headline News website and you will see a photo of Jane a little down the page. Click on her photo and you will be taken to her page. On the right side is a link to tweet her or to even email the show.

I have done my part, I have left an extensive note with the Nancy Grace show and I have also blogged about Holly on my own blogsite.

I do not know Holly. I have never seen her at the bank or at a donut shop, nor have I taken a class with her – but I care and I am sure all of you do as well. Some of you know her personally or even know her family.

Now is the time for you to do more. Turn off your TV for a minute or stop reading your book and do what you have the power to do. Get Nancy and Jane talking about Holly.

The resolution to Holly´s disappearance and hopefully bringing her home alive might depend on it.

I plead to the goodness in each and every one of you to do something to get this case on the television on a regular basis until it is resolved.

You have the power to effect change – now is the time for you to demand that Holly gets the coverage she deserves.

  1. Yes when this story first broke on CNN it was on the news for about a week and not another word so what is the story — I do not get it and as stated Jane Valez Mitchell is usually good at reporting cases like this so why not this one ???/

    • Hi Sally; Thanks for visiting and commenting. I was initially confused and thought that because Holly is white, a blonde, and so lovely, Jane and Nancy would get their hooks around sthis story and cover it daily until Holly was found. Unfortunately, for Holly, her family immediately clammed up, as well as the shefiff and the FBI and the TBI – as a result, there was not enough salacious detail to keep Nancy and Jane speculating about whether the family was involved or if other bombshells would surface – because the case itself was somewhat of a “dud” newswise, the two shows and HLN itself dropped coverage. I tried to keep blogging about it and I joined a few sites to help keep the case alive. Every so often Nancy or Jane did a segment but Nancy and Jane need National Enquirer kind of gossip to keep their followers interested and that is sad. Thanks for commenting and feel free to sign up for email notifications of new blogs. Again, thanks…. Kevin

  2. Who was the last person to see Holly before Wed morning. Who actually heard her voice before that day. Did something happen or did she get hurt in the middle of the night and nobody know about it until she was missing? Can Drew Scott give any info on what was going on with Holly and her family?

  3. Nobody ever tells whom saw Holly last – not counting Clint. Did her mom see her that morning or assume she was still sleeping in her room. Did her dad actually see her that morning before leaving for work or just assume she was in her room asleep. Could the bad deed have taken place in the middle of the night and she was actually removed the next morning or hid the next morning. Since Clint says all this story and he’s so innocent is he out talking to people, asking questions, searching for Holly? Has anybody even searched the Bobo property? As close as Holly and Drew Scott were it looks like he could shed some light on this story or what goes on in Holly’s life. When did he actually hear her voice last? (not text)?

  4. sue, do you live in parsons?

    • to theresa;

      no i do not live in parsons or anywhere near there .

  5. I HAVE 2 THEORIES ABOUT THIS CASE:

    MY THEORY # 1: ANOTHER THEORY OF WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED TO HOLLY BOBO IS THAT SHE MIGHT BE A VICTIM OF AN ABDUCTION OF AN ORGANIZED PROFESSIONAL SEX-SLAVERY RING, THAT ABDUCTS BEAUTIFUL GIRLS IN USA, BRAINWASHES THEM (TO ERASE THEIR MEMORIES), TURNS THEM INTO SEX-SLAVES, AND SELLS THEM TO CORPORATE OLIGARCHIC RICH OF THE USA AND OTHER COUNTRIES

    MY THEORY # 2: AND ANOTHER THEORY COULD BE THAT HOLLY BOBO HAS BEEN A VICTIM OF THE SON OF AN ULTRA-RIGHT WINGER CORPORATE WEALTHY ELITE OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY OF TENNESSEE (REPUBLICANS ARE VERY EVIL BY THE WAY)

    .

    • Obviously, there are as many possibilities as there are stars in the sky. Theory #1 might be a stretch because I doubt that a person in camos would probably not have a relationship with a professional sex-slavery ring – but stranger things have happened. Theory #2 sounds more plausible – I must admit though that I have never heard of the Rep Party of Tennessee. Thanks for writing and your interest in Hollys abduction.

  6. i recommended those sites, but i don’t agree with charging a fee for finding a loved one.. i want that stated for the record. any cases i worked on i never took money for finding a missing person. annette martin is the best i know though.

  7. on annette martins website it says she isn’t working on cases until june, she will work on this case if he is requested too. i spoke with her via my email and have confirmation of that.

  8. there are no town meetings here in parsons regarding this issue. the only thing i read lately in the paper is carrying a gun, the gun laws may be overlooked under the circumstances; they listed various sites for self protection from abductors, the first and foremost DON’T GO WITH ANYONE, RUN, SCREAM, most likely the potential abductor won’t use a firearm since he/she wouldn’t want to draw attention to themselves. on acreage like we live on, no one would hear me yell and i would have anywhere to run but my house or woods which are isolated. i also read an unidentified woman did call 911, as well as Holly’s brother. no further volunteer searches that i know of were requested. Holly’s parental did make a public statement asking residents to check their own property. i’m too afraid to wander our 30 acres, albeit armed. my boyfriend and i would welcome people to help us search our property. we have tried to search some of the acreage, but most is densely wooded thicket. i feel guilty, i won’t go alone and i don’t know anyone to ask to come with me, nor would i know if i trust anyone for obvious reasons.

    regarding the psychics i know, the paranormal psychologist i know personally from the San Francisco area is LLoyd Auerbach, who has appeared on numerous History Channel shows with his team. The websites for one of his renowned psychics is Psychic Detective, http://www.annette-martin.com and http://www.closure4u.com. i have worked very closely with these psychics, since i studied it since i was a teenager, as i am a psychic. in this town, i feel as if i i’d be judged saying i’m a psychic and i am afraid. being a psychic doesn’t make you immune to fear. i feel my counterparts would better serve giving non conventional potential clues to investigators, if they are open to the other realm of detective work, than i would be.

    i had a man, in november, come up to our land and shove his foot in my door asking me if i owned a red pick up truck… he drove a green older truck, i don’t know the model, with a chrome like stripe down the side of it. he wouldn’t leave, he opened my storm door to my house, i looked up since i had a rifle i couldn’t reach and then i realized oh, my god, i’m here alone so i talked the guy reiterating i didn’t own a red pick up truck. finally, he left, since then i have a gun within reach. i don’t know if i should call the police and let them know that happened to me. we did report the incident to the local police since i was so scared at that time. i do live pretty close to holly. i was traumatized for about a week after that then it faded to a memory.

    life goes on, i hope holly’s will and that she is found safe and alive.

SOMETIMES IT TAKES A LITTLE LONGER THAN EXPECTED, LET;S NOT GIVE UP ON HOLLY…. OR ALLTHE OTHER MISSING PEOPLE;; ….

    • Hi again;

      If the TBI does not have any solid leads, what would hurt if they listened to a medium, be it a psychic or a messenger? It might steer them in a direction that might help. Sort of like if you are blindfolded at a party and someone turns you in the direction of the donkey and you pin the tail. Maybe that is a crazy analogy but something like that might work.

      I do wish, however, that all the finger pointing would stop – some people are spending so much energy saying that Clint is absolutely involved – also, some people are saying things like Holly was a special girl – I think people should speak of her in the current tense – as though they have already buried her – that is disappointing to me and I am sure the family is hurt by that.

      Well, gotta run….

      Thanks again for writing.

  10. HELLO AGAIN KEVIN;

    I AM JUST AS CONFUSED AS YOU ARE AS TO WHY THEY ARE NOT FOCUSING MORE ON THIS STORY ALSO. THOSE ARE SOME OF MY FAVORITE PROGRAMS I WATCH WHEN I CAN..

    & LAW INFORCEMENT FOR NOW…

    • Hi again Sue; You have a lot of insights into Holly’s abduction – too bad there could not be a town meeting where concerned citizens could vent, offer ideas, suggestions, and be able to sign up for small groups to search extended areas beyond where they have covered already.

      I wish you the best. By the way, I believe that psychics can help solve cases. I do not know much about messengers but what you wrote seems like they also might help.

      I surely am not a psychic but my gut feeling is that Holly is alive and doing everything possible to stay that way.

      Why doesnt someone contact the mayor or city council and demand a town meeting to help everyone to deal with all their concerns? Just a thought.

      Take care. By the way, security cams are the way to go – also external lights that respond to motion.

      Kevin

  11. its interesting that i just look at Google maps, i followed the Morgan Harrington case, although it not the same, was in VA, its not that far way from this state, the killer could be moving around because of his job, u should check out this case, as they are very close to each other in more ways than one

  12. i live in parsons & we all want to help & tried to help. the media is silent here, everyone is talking about how frustrated the community is with having no information or coverage on this issue any longer. its scary for this community because we don’t know if this is targeted at her or could be a serial scenario. the beautiful, large land we live on is now an ominous woods to me as i drive up our long driveway to our home, fearful a man might jump out of our woods before i leave for work or when i come home. life here has changed. i also hear psychic were wanted by work of mouth throughout the community. i know several renowned psychics willing to work on the case, but i don’t have anyone to email their information to. the psychics i know worked on cases that were aired on history channel and have assisted with clues that have helped dectectives to solve many cases. i don’t feel calling the tbi tip line is the place for unconventional methods of detective work. i agree with all of you, i don’t understand why there aren’t searches any longer and why this isn’t front and foremost on national tv or even local tv anymore.

    • Thanks again for writing…. I can truly feel your fear and your concerns in your words. I would not be comfortable living in Parsons right now.

      One question, are the local police having town meetings to assure residents that they are doing things to keep citizens safe and have they said anything about this not being viewed as the action of a serial kidnapper or killer? Is this case being talked about by people when they are out and about shopping of running errands like going to the bank or the local convenience store?

      Have you considered being heard by someone on a national level? I believe you have a lot to say and that you would be listened to. I believe a national show like 60 minutes or Dateline or some other show would be interested in talking to you about your concerns, your fears, and the Holly Bobo case itself and why nothing is being revealed to concerned citizens like you.

      I think there should be national coverage but I am shocked to hear that the local coverage has died down as well. Wow.

      If you ever want to drop me a line, I believe there is a way through my blog. So if you ever feel you want to write something, yet, not have it detailed in the blog itself, feel free to do so.

      Take care and I wish you well.

      Kevin

    • DEAR KEVIN;

      THANK YOU FOR CARING THOUGHTS ON THIS CASE I TOO FIRST SAW THIS STORY WITH DEBBRA NORVILLE & IT REALLY HIT CLOSE TO HOME AS I LOST A FAMILY MEMBER A YEAR AGO SO I AM VERY PATIENATE ABOUT THESE CASES.
      I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOUR SAYING,, I HAVE TO FIND OUT BY LOGGING ON TO THE WEB SITE TO FIND ALL THE UPDATES.. I FEEL FOR THIS POOR GIRL.
      THERE ARE SO MANY STORIES FLYING AROUND I’M NOT SURE WHAT TO BELIEVE ANYMORE. I GUESS ONE QUESTION WOULD BE WHY WAS THE BROTHER STILL HOME AT THIS TIME I’M NOT SURE IF HE IS STILL IN SCHOOL OR NOT, SECOND THE REASON HE PROBABLY CALLED THE BOYFRIENDS PHONE OR EX BOFRIEND STILL CONFUSSED ABOUT THAT ONE, IS THAT’S WHO HE THOUGHT SHE WAS WITH BUT YET THERE IS NO VEHICLE ANYWHERE TO BE FOUND ,, I’M NOT READY TO SHIFT BLAME TO THE BROTHER, HIS ONLY FAULT WOULD BE HE SHOULD HAVE RAN OUT AFTER HER TO SEE WHERE HE WAS TAKING HER THEN CALL THE POLICE.. AS THEY SAY IT’S ALWAYS THE LAST ONE THAT SEES THE VICTIM IS USUALLY THE SUSPECT. NOT SURE IN THIS CASE, THERE;S ALOT OF SEX OFFENDERS OUT THERE THAT PRAY ON WOMEN LIKE HER, IT’S 3 WEEKS TODAY & STILL NOTHING I FOLLOW THIS EVERYDAY,
      I HAVE MY OWN OPINION ON WHAT HAPPEN, & WHOM THEY SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR I KNOW THIS IS DIFFICULT FOR LAW-IN FORCEMENT BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO CHECK ALL THE LEADS OUT ,, BUT MY ISSUE IS. I HAVE SOMEONE VERY CLOSE TO ME WHO HELPED FIND MY FAMILY MEMBER I DID ALOT OF RESEARACH TILL I FOUND HER & THANK GOD SHE WAS THERE FOR US.UNFORTUNATELY LAW-IN FORCEMENT AREN’T CRAZY ABOUT USING PSYCHICS BUT SHE IS NOT ONE SHE IS A MESSENGER.. WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS STORY SHE IS THE FIRST ONE I CALLED TO HELP OUT WELL LOW & BEHOLD I REACHED OUT TO SEVERAL PEOPLE ON THIS BEGGED THEM TO CALL HER & HERE WE STILL SIT WITH NO HOLLY.. WHY DO PEOPLE NOT LISTEN TO US WHEN YOU PERSONALLY HAD THIS HAPPEN TO YOU, & YOU RECOMMEND THIS PERSON TAKE IT & RUN,, BECAUSE SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE IS DOING SHE HAS HELPED MANY MANY FAMILIES.. & FROM THAT AREA.. ALSO IT GETS TO BE VERY FRUSTRATING AFTER AWHILE BECAUSE NOONE IS LISTENING,,
      I PRAY TO GOD FOR HOLLY;S SAKE SHE COMES BACK BUT AS THEY SAY THE LONGER YOU ARE GONE & TAKEN TO THAT SECOND PLACE THE ENDING IS NOT GOOD… THERE TRULY ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CAN HELP THIS FAMILY, & I HOPE TO HELL THE TBI COME UP WITH SOMETHING SOON,,, & I UNDERSTAND WHY THEY KEEP CERTAIN THINGS TO THEMSELVES DUE TO JEPORDIZING THE CASE OR THE PERSON OF INTEREST I GET THAT THEY CAN’T RELEASE ALL THAT RIGHT AWAY & THE PUBLIC GET IMPATIENT, THEY SAY THEY FOUND SOMETHING ELSE , WELL WE CAN MAKE TONS OF GUESSES WHAT IT COULD BE & I’M SURE THEY HAVE GOTTEN HER CELL PHONE RECORDS ALREADY, COULD THIS BE A PIECE OF JEWELRY, CLOTHING , SHOE
      NOTE, WHO KNOWS, THE MOST IMPORTANATA THING IS THEY NEED TO BRING HER HOME I KNOW WHAT THIS FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH IT’S HELL,,

      PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL;;

      • Hi Sue; Thanks for writing. This is sure a mess, isnt it? Right now, all the issues about the family need to take a back seat and the focus, like you said, has to be on Holly. After she is returned – hopefully alive – then things can be sorted out and the abductor(s) can be prosecuted.

        It would be nice if the TBI spoon fed people in the area. I have no doubt they have a crumb or two that would not jeapordize the case that would help ease some of the questions – especially those questions surrounding Clint, the 911 calls, his calls to the boyfriend, mom, and finally 911.

        Keep in mind that Clint is a young man and when you are under pressure to act and make immediate life and death decisions, you sometimes stumble because those courses of actions cannot be taught – everything you do is “on the fly” so to speak – no one does life and death things in a perfect sequence. We can all sit in our Laz-E-Boys and calmly say that we would have called 911 first and we would have run after Holly – but that talk is based on thinking about it and not acting in seconds versus minutes or even the next day. Could he have made a better decison or two – yes, he could have, but you can believe that the next time he is in a critical situation he might react differently.

        Bottom line is that Holly might still be alive and be in the custody of her abductor and that is the important factor here. From what I have read about Holly is that she is a very loving and caring individual and probably would not do anything that would cause harm to herself – so she could be doing everything possible to keep calm and focus on the day she will be found and reunited with her loving family.

        Another thing – some people are critical of the mother for not crying – all people react differently in emergencies – there are times I cry at the drop of a hat, like in a movie and other times under extreme stress you could not squeeze a tear out of me. So, give the mother a break. Focus on Holly and show respect for the family.

  13. I think one of the reasons Nancy and Jane haven’t had more coverage on this is exactly because of TBI not revealing evidence or information–which is very maddening. Blood testing needs to be revealed–animal or Holly”s? What could that possibly compromise by releasing it? Also, 911 call–why has it not been released? I agree with your article 100%. I also think the family is involved, however, and this may be why TBI is so quiet.

    • I have had my suspicions as well. Everything you said I have said on various blogs. The TBI should be able to say if all of, or part of, the blood spatter belongs to Holly. If some of the blood belongs to a family member, then all bets are off. The specifics about the 911 call could easily be released – time of call, what was said by whomever made the call – it is rumored that the brother called 911 but that has not been confirmed either. Also, the brother supposedly called his mother first. If so, why? If there is an emergency, call 911, THEN call relatives. I truly believe Nancy is not covering the case because she tries to be more of a prosecutor versus an investigative reporter and because she cannot prosecute anyone in this case – especially with the family lawyering up and the TBI telling them to clam up, Nancy has her hands tied behind her back – and unless she can pick on someone or berate someone, Nancy does not cover a case – even though it is a given that Holly is missing. I hope and pray that this is not a “Balloon Boy” like situation – that would be a tragedy in itself and if so, some people should go to jail for a long, long time.

      • Kevin – I could not agree with you more ! Nancy Grace is often rude and unless her guests agree with her, she has no use for them. One thing about this case that has bothered me from the very start is this: the media initially reported that upon going outside, spotting the blood on the driveway and finding his sister was missing, Clint Bobo called the BOYFRIEND’S cell to find out what was going on, and asked where Holly was. Why did he call the boyfriend and not his sister Holly ? Wouldn’t you first call your sibling to find out where they were ? Why did he call the boyfriend first, unless he knew his sister was incapable of answering her phone ! As I said, I had read this when Holly first was missing and if it’s true, it is compelling.

        • Nancy, thanks for your comments. I have no doubt what you are saying about Clint calling Holly’s brother is what you heard – I just never heard it and I thank you for the info. I heard that when he found the blood spatter, there was some kind of delay and then he called his mother and then he called the police. In either case, that means he called her boyfriend, then called his mom and then called the police. That further delayed the start of any search.The TBI could clear this all up by releasing phone records and that would not hurt the hunt for Holly at all. If the family is truly not involved it would shift the focus to a culprit and people in the area would shift focus away from the family. I wonder if some people are not getting involved because they think Clint or the boyfriend or another family member is involved. As a minimum, the timeline from when the brother first saw Holly with the man in the camo’s and when all these calls were made SHOULD be released. They are in almost all other cases. I have heard recordings on many crime shows of 911 calls – if not the actual voices, there are text screens of what was said in the calls were not clear enough for rebroadcast. Come on TBI, get people involved and clear those who are no longer persons of interest or suspects.
