PARSONS, TN (WSMV) -- The search for Holly Bobo has been as agonizing as it is puzzling. Two years have passed since the young nursing student vanished into the woods near her West Tennessee home without a trace.
Law enforcement and volunteers have devoted countless man-hours searching the woods and fields near Bobo's home, but a new team of investigators led by nationally known Brentwood mom Sheila Wysocki is uncovering new developments in the case.
Wysocki received national attention for obtaining a private investigator license and solving her college roommate's murder 20 years after the crime, and she now runs Without Warning: Fight Back with the goal of preventing assaults through self-defense and education.
With the blessing of the Bobo family, Wysocki brought together the full resources of her not-profit group and is working to help the Bobos find out, once and for all, what happened to Holly.
"The first time that I met Sheila, I just instantly liked her. We just clicked," said mother Karen Bobo. "I just feel like somehow, some way, Sheila and her team are going to help us."
Before the Without Warning team could get started, it had a very awkward assignment - it needed to be sure that Holly Bobo's brother, Clint Bobo, had nothing to do with the crime.
Clint Bobo is the only witness to his sister's abduction from her family's Parsons, TN, home in Decatur County on April 13, 2011.
He has been interrogated for more than 17 hours, strip searched, polygraphed and even hypnotized to find out exactly what he knows and remembers. He also turned over his hard drive and cell phone, yet some outsiders still think he had something to do with the crime.
Clint Bobo said he never felt hated until his sister was abducted. He had never been called a criminal, much less a killer, until his sister disappeared.
But ever since Holly Bobo went missing, Clint Bobo has received death threats and has been accused of planning or actually killing his sister Holly Bobo.
"They're warped. In my mind, they're warped," said Karen Bobo, about those who accuse her son of involvement.
Remarkably, it is Clint Bobo's role as an eyewitness that made him a suspect. Sound asleep that April day, Clint Bobo woke up to the sound of his dog barking then heard voices.
