Well, it looks as if this guy has been arrested again. He and the supposed rape victim were in Pagosa Springs this last week and several witnesses spotted him dragging her through a parking lot by the hair. The police were called and he was arrested for domestic violence and probation violation. Back to jail again Travis!

It is horrible that she is still running around with this guy. Did she think he would be pleasant after she pressed charges against him? Did she forget all the horrible things she said about him? WTH is going on in her head? Are the police going to have to show up at her house on a daily or weekly basis because of her ongoing terrible judgement? If I was the father of her girls I would be terrified to have them with their mother, she is endangering them and making very poor decisions that put the kids in harm's way.
Goodness sake, think of the KIDS before you become another statistic!

You are insane. She doesn't have anything on her record. Just because her family is screwed up doesn't mean she is. He does have a record... have you looked at it.
Ridiculous!

I can tell you exactly why she was with him...family money, anything that looks good on the surface (to others) is her main concern. Im sure she used him and was done.
The "rape" occured AFTER they had been dating for quite some time. If he was in fact a shady fellow, she knew. And she CHOSE to stay with him.
YOu are all judging him by his past and family. If you knew her family name...I'm sure you would all have recolections of the stories in the papers and on the news. Not exactly a spotless history there. It might even make you concider that the source is less than trust-worthy.
Who knows what the story is on this one? I can say one thing: It's most likely NOT the one she told the police, the judge, or anyone else.

Did it ever occur to you that she didn't have a choice but to go back to him? No one knows what he said to her to make her go back. Maybe she was afraid of what would happen if she didn't.
So easy to judge when you actually have no idea what happened.

I usually like to read the posts after a legal case is presented so that I can possibly have an intelligent perspective and even a back-and-forth type of conversation about what is taking place locally. I am disappointed to see that most of the posts in this forum are only to bash either the victim or Mr. Holcomb, and now even their families. It is disturbing to see that the local media allows this type of crude attacks on either of these two. I am sure that they both have pasts and have made mistakes, but haven't we all. I was hoping to at least be able to converse with the community in a way that could actually bring about some insight and positivity to what appears to be a very tragic and upsetting event, probably on both their parts. I don't know who is at fault here. If she was after something and lied or if he really did those things and was able to pay or get off somehow. But in the end, many of the posts here really only show anger and ignorance on the part of the community. I am sure her friends are posting mean things about him and his friends are reciprocating. No disrespect to anyone's opinion here, but I do want to say that it is unfortunate that the community is lashing out at either of them in this way rather than realizing that these are two people who are obviously going through something very life changing... both of them! Perhaps we should all take a minute to examine ourselves and our wrong doings before we re-attack these two. They obviously both have issues and bringing up all of this dirty laundry really doesn't help anyone. I mean, does it make all of you to feel better about yourselves to write some of the horrible things you have written? I realize that it is not the popular thing to just let people live their lives - getting involved in the chaos and drama is much more exciting. But I really believe that all of this guessing and assuming does no good for anyone. Just my opinion.

So I must say I am so thankful for the internet these days. Im a single mother of one and have been through a lot in my life through an abusive relationship to married to a drug addict who I learned the hard way they are all full of lies. Anyways to make a story short I thought maybe I would have luck signing up and meeting a guy on a dating website rather than a bar or whatever these days. So I met Mr Travis Holcomb Im not going to lie his a handsome man and had a good story to tell that his taking over his dads business wants kids makes tons of money and is looking to buy a house for $600,000 but it was like he had nothing to show for all this "money" he was talking about. He lives in a camper and drives a beat up truck. He said he just moved here and just bought something cheap cuz he hates to rent. Well I only went on 2 dates with him and already for some reason had a bad vibe from him it was like when he was talking to me he seemed like he was on drugs all this "money" talk the way he carried himself just really reminded me of my ex who is a herrion addict. I dont know if his on drugs I dont know him very well at all just went on 2 dates with him. Anyways he would tell me weird strange things like lets have kids already right now delete our dating accounts online but it was soooo weird for some reason I had a bad vibe I wasn't safe I don't know how or why I sensed it maybe because of my past of what I been through I can read anyone or what. He then told me he was going to party and called me like 2 in the morning to pick him up and something told me do some research on this guy it just didn;t make sense if you have all this "money" why don't you call a taxi. So I did found this website and blocked my number from him asap and this website has saved me from being raped, abused, possibly even dead and possibly even my little girl who knows if he would of had done something to her. I'm for sure going to make sure to do a background check on any guy I ever date from day 1 this site saved me life!!!

This guy is a disgusting pig! He just attacked and almost killed another ex girlfriend in Chicago a few weeks ago! 1/2016! She had a restraining order against him, he broke into her apartment and beat her severally choked her. She suffered major injuries.Travis Holcomb has been arrested DOZENS of times for domestic violence and has a long history of violence against women... His family has big $ and he has a lawyer so he tries to get out of everything! Last week the judge didn't even know about all the other attacks on women , cbs2 news in Chicago / DNA info did a whole piece on him.. Now the judge has changed his bond to 3 million dollars. Also someone needs look into the disappearance of his mom back in 2014- she was never found.

Don't sound right. Goins's do not talk color. I do not know what color I am. They tell me I am an a handsome old white boy with long white hair but I would not know cause I do not see color. Beautiful women is god's greatest gift to man kind it did not bother god what color was what so it does not bother me either. Sounds like some kind of dumb chit written by Butter F or Dc who women of all colors avoid like the plague.

Wow, you have alot to say about me. It's interesting to read these things from so long ago, and here we are again with him doing it to another woman in chicago. No matter what you have to say about me, the fact is that travis is a monster. Maybe if people weren't put down and insulted by people like you, the ones who kept quiet woulf have helped put him away a long time ago. What insults can you throw at his latest victim? Ignorant.
