Initially people were attracted to her plight because, in my estimation, Holly is cute as a button – wholesome, someone who looks like a typical high school or college cheerleader – blonde haired, blue-eyed, fair complected – for lack of better words, Holly is the all-American girl next door. Most people who are reading this who have a son probably wish that he would come home and said “Mom, Dad, this is my girlfriend, Holly.”
The second reason for the interest in Holly has to do with the facts surrounding her disappearance – or moreso, the absence of facts regarding her disappearance.
So, we know the initial attraction to her disappearance, but what is keeping America’s interest in Holly’s abduction? That is even simpler to answer.
In a nutshell, initial facts are normally released within the first 24 hours of any abduction / kidnapping / or missing person under questionable circumstances. In Holly’s case, these facts were never released.
Supposedly, all information regarding Holly’s disappearance is considered so critical to the case that Law Enforcement (LE) at all levels are refusing to share any pertinent timeline facts with the media or the public. To me, that is utterly absurd.
This whole case falls in one of two categories – a conspiracy or a cover-up.
Why do I say this? Over the years, I have followed dozens and dozens of abduction cases on numerous crime and investigative journalist television shows and Holly’s case, and only Holly’s case, is wrapped in a shroud of secrecy.
To put it in Seinfeld terms – all the information has been locked in The Vault – never to be revealed. It is almost as though the specifics regarding the initial timeline has been locked in a time capsule and buried 100 foot into the ground in front of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s (TBI) headquarters at 901 R.S. Gass Boulevard, Nashville, TN 37216, with clear instructions to not open the capsule until June 1, 2051. Why? More importantly, what are they hiding and who are they protecting?
Normally, only cases like the JFK assassination deserve a shroud of secrecy like this. Presidential diaries are also sealed and locked up in the National Archives – never to be opened during that President’s lifetime. Again, why in this case?
I know that some individuals reading this might think that the statements being made in this blog are ridiculous and that was my intention, because I am trying to show how ridiculous the TBI looks by not revealing even the most minute piece of information.
What is of primary importance here is that Holly’s disappearance is not ridiculous – and it is because of that fact that I am asking everyone to take the poll below.
There are numerous rumors out there that can be resolved or even stopped on a dime if the TBI would release some basic timeline facts.
If your head is spinning so far, here is a link to a Topix Parsons, Tennessee community blog that has close to 7,000 posts – probably a hundred of which are mine.
In that thread alone there are probably hundreds of rumors, speculations, possibilities, accusations, references to people in the area that posters consider to be persons of interest (POI’s) and even names of others who posters say LE should consider as suspects.
Here is the link: http://www.topix.com/forum/city/linden-tn/TT4DGDTQ5K4I76JRM/p323 – read it at your leisure.

Now, back to the timeline.
I can understand why the TBI would want to keep the actual content of each call made to LE. Someone calling might have given LE names of individuals that they felt might have been involved with Holly’s abduction. There also might be information that was given in the calls about the abductor such as that he had a limp or that he was carrying a shotgun.
But, c’mon, it would not hurt to release the basic facts regarding the calls, such as:
What time was the first call received, where was it made from and to what LE organization? Was the first call made from a landline in the Bobo household or even from a cell phone of someone residing in the Bobo household to the local sheriff or even the TBI? Was a call made from a neighbor? If so, when. Again, no recordings need to be released, just that it came in, when it was made and to whom?
What would releasing this accomplish? The release of the most basic information would eliminate probably 20 – 30 percent of the rumors.
By doing just that, the chatter on the Topix Parsons blog would then focus on more meaningful discussions and not the constant rehashing of dozens of rumors that are attributed to everyone’s lack of specific detail – detail that is known only by LE.
By not releasing the basic elements of the timeline – it puts the family in question – i.e. by not releasing timeline information, it indirectly puts Clint and or his parents in the forefront as suspects. It hints that someone in the Bobo household might have lied to the press or to LE and eventually someone in the Bobo household will confess to complicity in Holly’s abduction.
So, here is the poll. I would like everyone reading this to take this one question poll, the purpose of which is to evaluate each person’s thoughts and opinions as to whether LE should release the absolute basic timeline information that would help everyone in Parsons and the surrounding area understand what was called in that morning and how and when LE responded.
If enough individuals respond to the poll, I intend on contacting the media – local and national in an effort for them to treat the Poll as a news item itself, so they will keep Holly’s abduction in the news.
By the way, please let a friend know about the poll itself. Voting matters – no mater how a person votes – each vote shows that people still care about Holly!
