New Information Surfaces in the Kidnapping of Whitney Duncan’s Cousin, Holly Bobo
Just over two years after she was kidnapped from her home in Decatur County, Tenn., new information has come to light in the disappearance of country singer Whitney Duncan‘s cousin, Holly Bobo.
Bobo was last seen by her brother, Clint Bobo, walking into the woods behind their home with a man dressed in camouflage. Clint believed the man was her boyfriend and that they were having a breakup conversation, so he did not pursue them, not realizing it was a kidnapping until it was too late. He later fell under suspicion, but a new team of investigators his family have engaged says they have checked his story out and cleared him.
According to Nashville’s WSMV, the new team is led by Sheila Wysocki, who made national headlines by solving the cold case murder of her college friend. She now heads a non-profit organization called Without Warning, which has thrown its full resources into the Bobo case. The team has already uncovered startling new evidence and developed a disturbing theory about the crime. After studying a digital “map” left by tracing Bobo’s cell phone, they have concluded that the perpetrator almost had to be someone local who knew the back roads — and who eventually doubled back to almost where the abduction took place.
Duncan rose to fame from appearances on ‘Nashville Star’ and ‘Survivor.’ She stays active in the case via her Twitter account, where she frequently updates her followers on the latest developments in the case and urges her friends in country music to re-share the information as far and wide as possible.
Bobo’s family has not given up hope that she will still be found alive, spending virtually all of their available time handing out flyers, organizing searches and prayer vigils for the young woman.
There is an $85,000 reward for information leading to Bobo’s return. Anyone who might have information concerning Holly Bobo’s disappearance is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.
