Yeah it sounds ominous. As far as the river search I know they had dive teams and were using some kind of technology to map the bottom that would indicate a body. I also remember reading that it was also dependent on the person interpreting the scan. FWIW

The randomness of the items being scattered is what is throwing me off. There is no reason a perp would spread evidence- why not hide it? It's almost like someone wanted it to be found...

That's why I had to ask the question on her running away. But I take everyone's feedback on that it's not something she would have done.

I realize that hunting and camoflage clothing is a big part of life in TN (as I have read here), but, it amazes me at the number of males who continue to wear the same clothing as the perpetrator of Holly's abduction, while searching for her!

No disrespect meant, it's great that they are out searching, but, maybe if there is a male who would normally "always" wear camo, who was out searching for Holly without his usual camo on, then maybe it would provide a clue, kwim?

Look at the guys (and gals) wearing camo in this pic! It actually tells us alot about the deep rooted hunting nature of the community, really.

motive?

revenge?
a debt?
a hazing/initiation?
a pregnancy?

... can be a motive.

hoping not the case here, but ... as there is some discussion about young people and drama ...

It's not just the river, either. There are bodies of water everywhere around her house.

The evidence spreading if probably to keep LE from going in one direction after the abductor. That way they have no idea which way this person took her. Plus, we don't really know what evidence they have that is really Holly's except for the lunchbox.

At some point we were told to wear thick pants because of the briars and whatnot. As you can see, this translated to all of us as hunting pants.

What do you think he meant by that ruling out that she didn't just run away.

Well if I've learned one thing it is that camo isn't worn across the nation as it is here in the south, lol. My husband doesn't even hunt anymore and we have all kinds of camo pants, shirts, hats, gloves, netting, ...I don't think he has any camo duct tape now that I think about it. I'm sitting here with a pink John Deere camo blanket across my lap, lol. In the south, Camo is as common as blue jeans. And you know you're a Bubba if you bring your newborn baby boy home in camo---seriously, some people do!

I took it to mean they know who did it even though it appears that they do not and that they have much more evidence than what has been released.

Speculating, fwiw....

IF the abductor killed Holly right away, then I think all of her items would have still been with her, most likely buried to keep all evidence hidden. The fact that several items have been strewn suggests that the abductor is intentionally toying with LE....and perhaps has kept Holly alive, almost taking a "catch me if you can" kind of tactic.

LOL! I would see people asking did the brother not think it was odd that she was walking away with someone into the woods with camo on? And I'm siting there thinking no I would have wondered why he didn't have on camo if he was in the woods. Not funny I know but people really don't realize just how common it is.

Just a thought, maybe the blood was the abductor's. They were able to make a DNA match as he has a record. But, they don't know "where" he is. Just looks like if that were the case they wouldn't be searching so much along roadsides as they would be checking abandoned houses, cabins, and the woods.

It's a great point, and one which is very important, I think.

He had camo on because he had been or was planning on being, in the woods.

But then again, I guess it is probably common to wear the camo in town etc. also, or would it be? Is wearing camo restricted to being in the woods, or is it worn everywhere?

Right. If someone is missing I have not heard about it. FWIW

Could it mean that it appeared at first as if only 1 man abducted Holly and now LE thinks there is more than 1 abductor?

Oh it's everywhere. Grocery store, bank, wherever you need to go in town, not unusual at all to have on camo.

Possibly. They think a second person is planting the evidence?

I do hope, beyond hope, that LE is checking places like this out, they are just using the searchers to look for evidence that may be related to Holly. It would be perfect if they do have a DNA match, searchers can help to build a case because of all they are doing to help.
