    If I were the Bobo family I would be sitting in the Governor and Attorney General's office tomorrow morning getting some action and answers before any real harm is done.

    From the link above

    In conjunction with the resolution of these issues, District Attorney General Matthew Stowe has submitted a request to the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference for the appointment of a pro tem to proceed with the prosecution of the three defendants charged in the Holly Bobo case.

    I'm afraid that this case is in trouble. Stowe seemed to be the most pro-active person involved. Since he came on, Holly's remains were found and suspects arrested and pursued. I'm worried that things are going to stall in the progress of justice for Holly.

    Just had a thought. How long to bring the new prosecutor up to speed? Hopefully, it's already one Stowe chose for his team.

    gah, I don't like not knowing what's going on when a DA talks about shady deals in local and federal arenas, TBI quits a district & now Stowe is stepping down/back. hmmm

    1 suspect (Dylan) was arrested since he took over the DA's office. All of the other suspects were arrested prior to him becoming DA. The only people that deserve any credit for finding Holly's remains are the ginseng hunters.

    I think Dylan is an important one though. And yes, it was probably just coincidence that Holly was found when she was...but oh what a wonderful coincidence. I really admire someone who grabs the bull by the horns! Stowe seems aggressive and I think this case needs that. Of course, I haven't cared for TBI from the start so maybe my feelings are tainted by the early days...when the search was called off at Easter and the case fell by the wayside, my heart sank. And TBI gave us nothing. Ever.

    Can you please explain how the TBI screwed up the investigation? I asked this earlier today but nobody gave a response. Thanks in advance.

    This case seems like a hot mess right now. I hope things can get back on track. But with so much public infighting btweeen the DA and the TBI...who knows?

    It is challenging to explain in a simple post but I will try to take it on. First, the case took 3 years for even one arrest to be made. TBI had to know the names involved in this murder, since locals have been talking about these very suspects since the first days of Holly's disappearance. All of these men are career criminals. How ZA was even out of jail to commit this crime against Holly is a mystery to me.

    TBI also refused to clear any person of the crime, including Holly's own grieving family. This was a big flaw since it cost the family much added pain due to rampant suspicion of Holly's brother. If Holly's disappearance hadn't ruined his life, then the ensuing questioning of his guilt did the job.

    TBI never released ANY info about the 911 calls. We believe there were 3 calls made by different individuals but we have never heard them. They refused to give a helpful timeline in the case. They refused to tell the public any information about the days leading up to Holly's abduction. They would not tell about any of the items they had located in the early days. Heck, it took me over a year to figure out which part of the woods Holly was taken to by the suspect.

    TBI did not communicate with Holly's family...the family had very little idea what was happening in the investigation.
    There are many other complaints against the TBI. The cases they handle always seem to go awry and their public relations department is severely lacking.

    I believe to burn the TBI's integrity publicly would not only put this case in question but also others from the past too. I am afraid Stowe is putting distance from himself and what he fears may be coming inevitably. Something in the Holly Bobo case seems to have made his hair stand up.

    Whatever it is, it's interesting for sure. Just searching via google for any corruption in TN is alarming. Top to bottom. Sadly.

    I've lived elsewhere and in AZ, not surprised, but extremely disappointed.

    TBI resumes role investigating Holly Bobo case

    December 18th, 2014
    ...

    "Obviously the DA's independently elected and the TBI is an agency of ours that we feel like has been real effective, and they should continue to do that," Haslam said.

    "The right thing is always to make certain that the TBI is providing service everywhere they can to local law enforcement as well as (to) prosecutorial authority," he said.

    no we aren't but we aren't going to help you anymore and we have power, especially press wise.

    Thanks for this breakdown! While all of the things you mentioned are troubling, they make the TBI out to have poor public relations more so than them being poor investigators. You mentioned their PR dept. is lacking, and I couldn't agree more with that. However, none of the things you mentioned would jeopardize a case IMO.

    There are plenty of cases where the guilty party is known and walks free for years because of a lack evidence. TBI's nondisclosure on just about everything in the case leads me to believe there's plenty we don't know yet. They might have a perfectly reasonable explanation for waiting for so long before making arrests. Holding off on the arrests might even end up being for the better because the remains are now found and they may have game changing evidence to use at trial now.
