No. I never heard. Do you know if there is a Clenney behind them?
yes there is a clenny on the north side of myracle town road/arms creek road right at the intersection of box road. in essence this is 'behind' the bobo's, to the southwest, separated by woods then fields then woods again.

I'm not much into, "conspiracy" things, but I thought it was pretty weird that I was watching Dana Bobo get interviewed and his words were, "She had a PINK purse." But the picture of the one they supposedly found today was brown and leather. And it was pretty convenient that the purse was found just a few days after the 2 year mark of her disappearance. Idk. Just odd.

I'm guessing they lived somewhere in the neighborhood
if it was their dogs that allegedly came home with the
purse which I am highly skeptical of.
What I would be more inclined to believe is the pink purse is a
red herring. I think it was just another piece of staged evidence.
Possibly thrown out in a nearby ditch with some sort of scent on it to attract dogs. Then it was maybe found in a yard. JMO.
Why Now? do you think? Ive not heard of anyone under suspicion really. I dont know if TBI was even investigating heavy, now that it is 2 years later. Why put out a herring now if they were not suspects?

Thanks Zoey. That is exactly what I was told.

Erika - I had never heard rumor tying the Fox death to Holly's case. It was a mysterious fire, homicide due to arson resulting in death of Chief Fox. It might. Local rumor that I hear is completely in another direction - people suspect owner got rid of a cash drain; that's overwhelming suspicion target in that fire.
Since his name was brought up, Oak Hill (Myrtle's) used to be owned and operated by Larry Mitchell's uncle - his dad's brother. I think the family sold property and business back in 90s or earlier after they died, not sure. If Larry's son was meth-lab connected, then that might be a link to pursue toward the Oak Hill fire. Some of that family still resides very close, and the adjacent property to where the fire was surrounds the bar I think, unless it's sold off too. Please correct me if anyone knows more accurate info.
Do you suspect the fires in some way other than drug informant retaliation?
I'm highly suspicious that they are connected.... not directly connected to her abduction... but that the people run in the same circles...
I personally believe that a drug ring or worse is being broken up.. and they are retaliating amoung themselves... JMO...

As I said a couple posts back. Maybe the interest in the case
was waning? Maybe they have a warehouse filled with unsold Tees
and no market for them?
Also, even more importantly, I've been here off and on for a long
time. This is the most skeptical and critical of the Bobos I've seen this forum be in a long time.

If this is a smaller scale of the level of suspicion being cast on the Bobos then it is more important than ever to reignite a case
for an abductor that has been really, markedly absent in the case for quite some time.
IMHO.

I have been skeptical of the camo man story. But if indeed he or whoever the perp was, took Holly out to a wooded area where he murdered her, it probably was done in anger - especially if he thought he could get her to go along with what he wanted and she refused. Then after he buried her and got back to his vehicle, he saw her belongings and then decided to do something with them. He may have tried to bury the backpack in a shallow hole nearby, then drove around and scattered her other things. Just thinking out loud and pure speculation, but many things are feasible as to how and why the backpack was where it was.
digging and burying all this in what - 27 minutes?

Here is a link to a property viewer of Tenn...
.. put in Decatur County

You should be able to click on any property to see who owns it.

If Holly's body were to be found in those woods, I would probably be the most surprised person on this forum.

That was where my gut took me at first. I thought it is almost certainly diversionary.

Now that I'm digesting it - IMO:
The dogs lost Holly's scent at edge of yard. Perp could have wrapped her body there intruding on scent, or even covered with some confounding scent. Then taken her 1 mile and killed and buried her. This fits redneck mafia behavior profile - IMO. They are known for being big and threatening, not as criminal masterminds. Could be they never really cared much about the purse being found, just needed a little lead time to get away. And we still don't know for sure if it was buried, or just jammed up under a log or something and the dog drug it out. What we apparently know now is that the volunteer searchers were as reliable and valuable as local LE.

Erika, Holly's backpack was found this afternoon at 1530 by a neighbor dog that brought it into it's owner's yard. look at local tv station coverage, it's all over, and on fox national news. sorry, i don't have a link.

Once again though Dees, any scenario that has Holly carried away
involuntarily or unconscious is one that would require a "valet" to
tote her books, purse and lunchbox along. And then a gofer to go plant them later. I don't see why or how they would do this.

Perp must have been a really fast worker indeed. Within forty minutes or less after LE was informed Holly was missing, they rolled up to the house in a blaze, and soon many neighbors were out standing around with the commotion. Maybe everything was real quiet and no one around in the David Box Road area that morning as he was getting rid of the backpack.

G, are you thinking a Bobo baited with the backpack, tying into all thus preparatory chronology of events, in order to re-surge gradually dwindling and suspicious public sympathies and to elevate drooping financial support?
Who was it that said "find the pink purse and you find Holly?" was that Dana in a fundraiser plea? Or a poster from on here?

Ok - not being mean or hurtful, just curious:
Now that we are freely discussing that Holly was probably a more normal range young lady with some hormonal urges - What if she accompanied the perp into the woods for a willing sexual encounter? Else, what if it was in order to join the perp willingly, or semi-willingly, lured by promise of quick meth hit or some other quick wake-up before this big test that had her anxiety kicked in? If so, then away from property on her own feet or ATV, scream still if by Holly could have been from the CURRENT LOCATION OF INTEREST, since it is near Wise home also. It could have been ecstasy scream or rage or terror, someone already mentioned we couldn't assume it was from attack.
We've had a lot of skirting around the question of who flirted with Holly and who did she flirt with. Someone keeps mentioning the city worker, rough trade, dangerous and alluring to some young women, especially if he came with a strong hookup for some possible drug habit Holly may have developed.
