@ It's believable,
Oh yes, I most certainly would have had NO qualms at all, about holding up signs at the recent anniversary carnival asking them to release the 911 calls,(if there really are any), asking them
why did they never correct the media about Drew's photo instead of Clint's and why the heck they never got a SAR team or PI as soon as the TBI dropped formal searches after 11 days.
Then, I would in turn ask the TBI, why they stopped formal searches in the case. And was it
because of planted evidence in this case.
I’m sure you would have been right there with those signs. And if I will believe that one, I surely will believe anything else you post. Is that the way it should go? And is that why you have felt a need to change your posting name as frequently as you have and have even admitted to changing it after being called out on it several times.

Thanks for a view into your window of life. Sorry that the games you play on the different sites has been all you've had in your life. Now I can better understand why some do not understand the meaning of love. By the way, I liked your Sunday Morning summon today to CVT6702, but I must say I can't understand how your summon and your evilness toward the Bobo family can possibly go hand-in-hand unless you are carrying the devil on your shoulder for the most part. Maybe you should think about it. Apparently there is good in you, but there is also evidence of much evilness present at the same time.
I am sorry you perceive me as 'evil'- I am a sinner like everyone, but I do strive to walk in the Light and not in darkness. I do believe I understand the meaning of love; I have been very lucky to have come from a solid, practicing Christian home and have tried to do likewise with my children. I have been blessed while growing up with loving aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, and other extended family members. It wasn't until I was grown and got some age on me that I realized so much, how many people have not grown up as lucky. However, the reality check for everyone is that not all humans are as they sometimes appear. The reason I brought up the word 'armchair detective' is because that is one of the purposes of Topix; and that is for people to be able to express their concerns concerning unsolved crimes. And if a TRUE detective went only by what friends and relatives told them, and listened to their advice to 'leave certain people alone' because they "just know" they are innocent, they would be out of a job and career.

SOMEBODY has to have a wide perspective and unslanted look at all family members when one of them goes missing. Although hopefully it won't apply to the Bobo family, in a large number of crimes in the U.S. when a child or family member goes missing, either a close relative is responsible or they know more than they will tell LE because they have some secrets to hide. These are the statistical facts - whether we like it or not.

It is interesting that you and some others who come on here are so protective of the Bobo's; I can understand it if you are a relative or close friend, because that would be understandable. But if you are not, just don't be automatically blinded by how they appear and what others have said they are. When crimes are solved soon after they have been committed it is true that families are usually spared too much scrutinizing by the public. But since this has been going on so long, unfortunately frustrations with the public keep mounting... and you know very well there are many who have doubts and many questions that some of us on here have raised - we certainly are not alone.

As for my moniker, it is what it is. Yes, I believe in the power of prayer. That's that. But who are YOU to judge anything about ME? At least I'm registered, and not hiding. I'm registered so if someone has a beef with me and wants to discuss it, they may through private messages so that it doesn't 'dirty up' the board. I'm also registered so everyone knows I'm on the up and up. What about you? Not so much. Thank you, have a nice day!
Just expressing my opinion, no more, no less. And my stated opinions toward you are not near as bad as your game of theories being stated against the Bobo family daily. How does registering one’s assumed moniker (as yours) expose who you really are? Truth is, I can be found almost as quickly and easily as someone can find your true identity while we both are attempting to protect our true identity with assumed names. IMO, what I do here is NOT called “dirty up” anything around here since nothing gets posted except “dirty words” against the Bobo family. You should understand where I am coming from.

If I have a beef with someone here, I will always see that it gets handled right here and not off this thread. I refuse to be here as anyone’s buddy. As I see it, some of you have too thin of skin to be posting on this thread. You like dishing it out against this vulnerable family, the Bobos, but you can’t take some of the same back in your own face. Anyone with such an attitude is rather puzzling to me, especially after that person slings around the words of praying or prayers constantly. How does one’s heart (faith) justify any such performance? Don't even attempt to answer that because you could never make me understand.

A couple of posters here, and I have come to the conclusion that
LE became aware of something amiss in this case early on. We believe they didn't buy the story and worked off the assumption that Holly was gone no telling how long before they were called so a roadblock at that point was moot.
I suspect that the cops have reason to believe that Karen may have had contact with Holly and folded up their tent and left.
About who spoke to who or was texting who, it is my theory that Holly left her cellphone at home and Karen had it all along.
I believe she had it in her purse she left along with her OWN cellphone at the school. It's the only way I can make sense of her actions and "phone tag". She was using both phones to text.
Therefore, I suspect that the fainting routine was an act. I think she was worried, I think she was nervous, but not about an abduction. I did not buy into the first presser. They did not plea for her release...they ask for Holly to try to get to A phone.
Showing they knew she didn't have her cellphone.
JMO, OMO.
Guess someone should have told Karen that LE was going to get info from Holly’s best friends so she should have made sure Holly would not have any contact with any friend or Drew before she was allegedly to be abducted. Now that is a wild tale if I ever heard of one. Sounds like three as told by “Guess Who” left their brains stored in the pickled vinagar jar to me. Maybe the next theory will work out better.

Please, all, do not tire of me asking questions of you....
But I could agree that something happened to Holly the night before her disappearance except that she spoke to several people by phone the morning of the 13th. She spoke to her mom, Drew and another school friend. How can we explain this if she indeed was gone from home that morning?
Its hard for me to imagine someone like Holly voluntarily leaving home for days on end and worrying her family....not to mention the weeks and months that have followed.
I felt that perhaps someone that Clint knew, and perhaps was entangled with, took Holly that morning. Could have been related to drugs or some other illegal activity? Even so, how then would Karen fall out on the phone when she heard that someone in camo was walking into the woods with Holly? Its like she KNEW that something was wrong before any one else would even think that. Why was Karen hysterical when Clint told her he thought Holly was walking into the woods with Drew...even if she knew it wasn't Drew? That makes no sense whatsoever.
I want to believe Clint, Karen and everyone in the family. But it just doesn't add up.
You brought up a good point concerning the theory that Holly left the night before. I have problems with it, because as you mentioned, there are others who said they also talked to her the following morning, not just family members. I do realize that she could have been somewhere besides where they thought she was, simply because she was talking most of the time on her cell, I assume. But that would imply that if she was somewhere else, they were not aware of it I don't believe, and that would indicate she had left on her own volition.

But then we have other problems, such as her blood and her scream, if indeed it was hers. And if it was, I really do not think she would have gone to the trouble to stage all the few facts and evidence that we do have, although I assume "Guess Who" does. But these thoughts are among the reasons this missing person case is so complex.

I am not a relative, not considered a friend. Hope that clears that up. Yes, you can keep making excuses, one after another but right is right and wrong is wrong. You, nor anyone else that post here, knows enough to be able to discuss the criminal investigation of this case. So, none of us have sufficient info to be able to point a finger toward anyone's direction, whether family or non-family. With your description of your own upbringing, and now your own family, God help us all if this is anything for all our future families. That is, the likes of your teachings in families yet to come. Do you have no moral?

I have had two very obvious, very recognizable poster names, and no others. I changed it as a friendly joke, and because people always assumed I was a man, as Gambler.

Exactly. There appears to be a lack of communication both ways. Did the Bobo's and the elusive Drew lawyer up early on in the investigation ... maybe about the time that there was suspicion within the investigation pertaining to Clint.

Holly Bobo Family Opens Up On OpenLine

Updated: Aug 09, 2011 8:16 PM PDT
On Tuesday night, Karen Bobo along with her husband, Dana, and son, Clint, agreed to take calls from NewsChannel 5 viewers during the hour-long, live broadcast of "OpenLine" on cable channel NewsChannel 5+.
Karen Bobo admitted she has had a hard time understanding the TBI's initial suspicion of Clint Bobo, Holly's brother. Clint Bobo was the first to be interrogated that fateful morning, since he was the last to see her alive.

Here is something else I was thinking about awhile ago. I came across this article:
http://www.wkrn.com/story/21110743/holly-bobo...

Dana and Karen mention calling Holly's phone still and leaving messages. Now I know at some point the box becomes full and a robotic voice will advise you of this.

I have never personally called anyone's cellphone and had anything other than a robotic male or female voice (depending on the carrier), tell me,
no one is available to take your call if it isn't answered either. So how are they hearing Holly's voice? Also, that led me to wondering how cellphones taken as evidence are handled in general.
Are the numbers transferred to a TBI answering service that records who calls and if any messages are left? Do they keep phones charged and periodically check them?

That did not seem feasible as they may have hundreds if not thousands of cellphones in the lockup.
You have the option to set up a personal message or not. Also, the voicemails all go through the service provider's servers and are temporarily stored there. This way, the phone doesn't have to be charged in order to receive voice mails, texts, etc. As long as the account is active (paid) this could happen indefinitely. So the phone could be setting uncharged in an evidence bag somewhere and the voicemails can still be obtained remotely with a PIN number via the server. Mailbox can also be emptied the same way.
