Thanks for the new thread, Salem.

I'm currently interested in the Carl Perkins Child Abuse Center. Does anyone know the employees?

Also, DLB is the neighbor who reported the scream, correct? As well as called KB?
TIA.

Do tell about DLB. The neighbor has never been identified in the press - or anywhere else I've seen. Not even which exact house the neighbor lives in.

Where did you get those initials?

Or did I miss an article or something?
 
Initials are my own- trying to keep within WS's TOS.

WREG (Memphis) the Kitsap Sun, and the UW library, a couple of smartphone apps- and property records. ;)

Conjecture- but can't see it being any other neighbor?

Of course, could be completely wrong. That seems to happen a lot as of late!

ETA: Wow, that was terrible wording on my part!

I was assigning initials to a neighbor of the Bobo's who may have heard a scream, and called KB.
 
To call KB at work..and also 911....that neighbor had to hear one heck of a scream. I am trying to think of what I would have to hear to get me to call. Of course, we live in town so we are always hearing things...traffic, kids playing, skateboards hitting the sidewalks, the train coming through, etc....
That neighbor must have been very alarmed.
 
So...was it DLB's son who called DLB from their home phone about the scream (landline)- and then DLB called KB? Or someone called DBL from a cell phone to report the scream?

Maybe DLB's son was hunting that morning, and closer to the Bobo's home than DLB? Confused as to who called whom on a landline vs a cell.
 
Has anyone worked up a complete profile of the perp in this case? If so, please share. I have been creating a profile, but it is a work in progress. I would really like to compare notes.

No complete profiles....only amateur guesses, mine included.
 
Still wondering if anyone knows if Holly's keys have been accounted for??
When and where were they found?

Why a search was not done immediately upon LE arriving?
Why there were no road blocks in place immediately after abduction?
Why does it seem LE is very protective of anyone involved in this case--as if they would be in danger from the perp....again it is like they know who is involved and no one wants to get THEM mad.IMO

Ya know, like every town has that one "crazy family" no one wants to mess with......cause they're the ones with that house that NO-One goes near for fear of being "farm feed". Maybe I have just watched too many of the wrong kind of movies, but it seems to me their is genuine fear involved in this one.
Only my opinion.

IMO most profiles are educated guesses. I was just wondering if anyone here on WS has done a complete workup (profile) on the perp, and if they would be willing to share it, so I could compare it to my own work in progress profile.

For instance: I believe the perp is 30-35 year old male. He is not married. Mother is deceased. May work for his family's business, etc.

JMO

Just wanted to bounce around some ideas.

Yes, in one of the earlier threads, some of us gave our ideas about the unsub. I said I thought it was a 19-28 year old male. I felt he had previous bumps with the law but nothing serious. He is a local who is a hunter. He feels superior and entitled. He has an abundance of "love" and protection from his family. He may have been rejected by Holly, or perceived her as being dismissive of him. He probably has a girlfriend. At one time, I thought he may have been helped by a friend...or perhaps two. But as more time passes, I think that is less likely. If it were so, I think one of them may have confided in someone outside the circle by now. I think Holly's family may have an idea who did this. I think the unsub's family may have an idea, as well.

I agree that he has ties to Parsons and is a hunter.
I agree that he feels entitled.

Also, I believe that he may have friends in LE, and they could play paintball together, or something like that.

I also belive that the date on which he abducted Holly is significant to him, i.e. whatever place he took her was available to him because others were away, out of town, etc.

Are you speaking hypothetically or do you have an idea who this person might be? Are you a local? Why would you think he plays paintball with members of LE?
 
I can imagine someone sort of like Leopold and Loeb who, after they killed their victim, participated in the police investigation. They planned to commit the perfect murder and wanted to watch in person how they could outsmart the police. Fortunately (or unfortunately for L and L) one of them dropped their glasses at the crime scene and they were caught.

Plus, I can't imagine Leopold or Loeb in full turkey-hunting camo. Just doesn't work.
 
What was everyone's reaction to the release of Holly's photo without makeup?

I'm somewhat confused as to what the purpose was. I did not see a significant change in her appearance except for her hair being up versus down. I understand the truck campaign and thought it was an excellent idea but why a photo of her without makeup for truckers? Why didn't they include the photo on her flyer? Thoughts?

No make up

I have been reading different message boards, a few that say they are from Parsons or a neighboring town. Some say they knew some of the people whose names are being tossed around as POIs. These are very small towns, tight-knit communities. What really bothers me is that even these residents don't seem to be able to put anything in perceptive other than bashing each other. Surely someone, more likely more than one person, knows who had a grudge or motive to take Holly. Why aren't they coming forward? What or who are they afraid of?? Retaliation...or are they being paid to keep quiet? There is a large reward that hasn't been claimed.
 
The longer it goes, the more inclined I am to think this was done by a non-local...some ex-con or transient passing through, saw Holly, followed her home, stayed in woods, waited for his opportunity and took it. The blood, however small, may mean he did enough to scare her into accompanying him. It does seem they should have been able to get through the locals by now.
