I'll ask again because I don't think I got a reply and hopefully someone will help out with information.
One of the locals in the article mentioned there are 2 other roads (excluding Swan Johnson Road) to the Bobo property. Where do those 2 other roads lead to? Do they lead to a highway? Is Swan Johnson Road the only road that leads to a highway from the Bobo property?
All it would of taken is one person to put it on Facebook that Holly was missing, or a text to several people, someone(s) at KB's school to text some of his/her friends about "KB just rushed out of school because CB said HB just went in the woods with a man in camo!", that person to FWD it to their friends & 1/2 the town knows in 5 minutes.
^Again, just saying that's how it could of happened. IMO only.
I was thinking the motive of revenge. I guess it could include grudge, but a motive of revenge for something could be a reason.
Does anyone remember what words were used to describe the blood? Did someone ever use the term "puddle?"
Something produced blood that was not a large amount. I would lean toward thinking that he probably punched her in the nose or cut her with a knife. But the arrow thing would be a possibility. I'm just thinking of all the things hunter types would do! I think whatever was done was probably done to produce compliance on Holly's part. He must have put her in fear of her life so she would go quietly!

My question: do you think that means that the blood WAS indeed found outside the garage on the gravel rather than inside on a concrete garage floor?
What exactly do you think "outside the door" means? Which door?
Holly was kidnapped on a Wednesday morning. My question is did those people not have jobs or school to go to? How does one just drop what they're doing at 8 am based on limited details go to someone's home? I could understand a neighbour in the immediate area or family, friends of Holly but there were apparently a 100 people there within minutes. I'm just trying to understand the timeline here. I think it's incredible that all these people knew within minutes. Also interesting to note there were all these other people but we don't know (it was never mentioned in any of the media reports or by family) that Drew was one of them. Also, noteworthy is Mr. Bobo arrived at 8:30. Much later than most of these other folks and he took it upon himself to secure the crime scene (according to the Jackson Sun report).
BTW, chances are the kidnapper could have been amongst them.
In my catch-up reading of the case facts, I came across a piece (I believe it was in the Examiner) that said Holly was in a one year nursing program (possibly to get a CNA degree.) She apparently only went to class on Wednesday and Thursday.
This leads me to believe that either the abductor got incredibly lucky, or he had researched enough that he knew her schedule, or he was close enough to Holly that he knew her schedule. Think about how many things had to happen for him to be in the right place at the right time. If Holly only went two days a week, what did she do on the other days?
If he planned to abduct her, he had to pick a time she would be alone. Dana, Karen, and , ideally, Clint, should not be home. Did the abductor think Clint was somewhere else? Would he have been so bold as to go right up to the house if he thought big brother could come out with a gun in defense of his sister? Was Clint usually out of the house in the morning by this time, too?
I feel like the abductor's "casual" attitude about getting Holly and get away at least suggests that he did not think anyone else was in the home. By Clint's accounts and a best guess estimate of the times, Clint observed Holly and this man outside for about 10 minutes. What abductor who is going to remove someone from the scene takes his time if he thinks anyone else is around?
If this theory is correct, then the abductor was likely not emotionally close enough to the Bobo family to know everything about their schedules. If he was watching the parents leave (and I think that there was about an hour's difference in Dana's departure time and Karen's), why did he not just go ahead and come for Holly as soon as her parents were both gone? He could have knocked on the door, made up an excuse for being there, and snatched her!
For some reason, he waited, apparently, several more minutes until Holly exited the house, and then he did not have much fear, if any, about spending some time talking to Holly before they disappeared into the woods some 10 minutes (roughly) later. He did not take Holly's vehicle as a means of getting out of there, and he marched a girl wearing only light clothing and flip flops off into dense brush in 40 degree temperatures, signifying to me that other transportation was waiting, or he didn't plan to keep her alive long enough for the temperature to matter to her.
JMHO, as always
It also brings to question what if the perp heard Clint or the dog barking? Is that why he walked into the woods with Holly as an escape route? If he didn't hear Clint or the dog, where would he have gone with her? Would he have taken her in her vehicle? In other words, was taking Holly into the woods as a result of panic or was it planned and he had his own "vehicle" somewhere on another road. I put " " for vehicle because he could have had a four wheeler and not necessarily a car.
If Clint wasn't home, he would have had a lot more time with his plan whatever that was.
I wonder if Holly is the type of girl who would say something if she saw someone on her property who wasn't supposed to be there. In other words, if she saw someone hunting on the Bobo property without permission would she yell out and say "hey, get off my property" or would she just go on and not pay any attention?
The neighbour heard a scream or screams coming from the Bobo home but yet he didn't go investigate and goes off to work. He told his mom about it who later was told by the secretary at Karen's school to go check the Bobo home. Mom wasn't alarmed enough either. She had to be told to go check.
But then within minutes of Karen finding out about Holly, perhaps a hundred people show up at the Bobo home.
What was it that alarmed all these other folks to rush over there but not the one who heard the initial scream (s)?
No one has answered my question on this, but I am betting from seeing the picture of the attached garage, that there was no door going directly from the house into it. I know that will be a controversial statement, but i cannot figure out where a door would be. The door in the kitchen that used to go to the other garage was on the opposite side of the room from this add-on garage. The best I can figure, you had to go out the kitchen door that went to the deck, and then turn left into the little breezeway to enter the garage. From the interior interviews posted in the media, you can see one door exiting out near where the pool sits, and then there is a small kitchen window to the left of the paned kitchen door. My bet is that you might be able to look out the kitchen window and see part of the garage-- the part where Holly and the camo man were seen crouching or sitting on the floor when Clint looked out. I doubt the perp heard Clint in the house, since the garage has its own walls of steel, and then there are the outer walls of the house. Unless Clint called out to Holly, which is not recorded as having happened, I really doubt the abductor ever knew he was there.
Clint could have even unknowingly been in danger had he revealed himself. It is likely the abductor had a weapon, and he might have used it on Clint to be able to take Holly without leaving a witness. It would seem that fate kept the Bobo's from losing both children that day, possibly! Based on the information we have, I don't think that Clint perceived any danger, and hence, there was no reason to interject himself into what he thought was a normal conversation between boyfriend and girlfriend.
Of course, this is all conjecture, and JMHO.

I agree with you that I don't think there is a door connecting the house to the garage. IIRC, Clint saw them through a window....which window, I'm not sure.
Just my opinion, of course.

Confused..and I am just starting to read more in depth on these threads...but, is what she was wearing described by her brother, obviously? If she was truly on her way to her car to leave for nursing/cna classes, she would be wearing nursing shoes. They are required. If this has already been addressed, I apologize. Just sounded strange and didn't fit..
