I am not familiar with that case but notice both girls (Erika and Holly) drive Mustangs.

Has anyone ever looked into Holly belonging to any sort of car club or going to car shows, etc. That could be how someone could become acquainted or fixated with her.
 
People here may want to checkout the thread for Erika Megan Sharpton, as
the who took Erika's young life, might possible be connected to Holly's case

the person arrested for erika sharpton's murder had a wife who was in nursing school, which is how he came across erika. her murder and holly's abduction are in proximity and they're both nursing students. is it possible there is overlap in the nursing programs, such as internships, residencies, common crossover at local hospitals, etc where his wife may have met holly? at the very least we know she purchased a weapon for a convicted felon that was used in the murder of a nursing student.
 
Still wondering how an "outsider" would feel comfortable enough on Bobo property to walk Holly off of it in broad daylight.
 
I don't think its an "outsider" as in, say, someone from Sacramento that happened to show up at Holly's secluded house and cart her off. I feel its someone local, although probably someone not intimately familiar with Holly or her family.

I still feel that this person had to observe Holly to find out where she lived but did not know so much about her social life, etc. to come up with a better plan for an abduction. I feel this person know where she lived and went to school and figured that school would be too problematic. At school there would just be too many people around and a greater chance of getting caught or stopped. That would leave Holly's house as the target.

Anyone else, with any sort of familiarity with Holly could have figured out she went to XYZ at a certain day or time, and perhaps could have abducted her away from home. There have to be times when Holly went places by herself and could have been intercepted on a country road, out doing something alone, going for a walk, anything.

What I found most interesting is that what Erika's mom mentioned about (in my words) how well DJ planned what he did, and only after seeing Erika just one time!!!

I've always felt DJ could be the perp in Holly's case. The only thing that made me pause was DJ lured Megan and planned her murder by involving his wife. He convinced Megan she had a nursing job. She drove to the location and sadly, she was victimized by this monster.

The circumstances in Holly's case are quite different but then again we don't know enough to look at other possible theories.

Megan's mom has been very vocal about her daughter's case from the very start and pertitnent details were revealed. The Bobos not so much. If there are similarities such as Holly perhaps responding to an ad, etc. now is the time to put that information forward, imo
:twocents:

I do not believe Megan was DJ's first and only victim.

i'm going to look for msm that discusses the role (or lack) le thinks dj's wife had in megan's case. i find it hard to believe he would be able to lure megan out to the middle of nowhere having only met her once without help from someone who knew her better. if anyone has links, i'd appreciate them.

i'm bringing this up in this thread because we have a guy three hours away who murdered a nursing school student who knew his wife (also a nursing school student). i think it's at least worth looking at whether there were potential areas where the wife and hb could have crossed paths. just my 2 cents. i'm not advocating sleuthing the wife, just looking for media that might indicate whether this is a dead end.
 
Interesting.

I wonder if he were responsible for Hollys disappearance, why, with Sharpton he would leave her (burned) body and car in fairly obvious places and with enough evidence to trace the crime back to him?

From the above cited article this is how Jones (the killer) came into contact with the victim...

"Sharpton's mother had previously told NewsChannel 5 that Jones had ties to her daughter through his wife. She said her daughter and Naomi Jones carpooled from Tullahoma to nursing school in Murfreesboro."

maybe something went wrong with his plan. he obviously planned sharpton's death for a while so why in any case would it have turned into dumping a body on the side of a fairly traveled road and lighting it on fire? that seems like pretty much one of the worst ways to deal with that situation if you're trying not to get caught, especially when you went to fairly great lengths to plan the rest of it (fake job, convincing her to go to an interview, etc).

if he is involved with holly it could have been the same MO except in holly's case his plan worked and in megan sharpton's it did not. maybe megan fought back or he thought someone saw something or she somehow disrupted what he was planning.

i want to find more info on the carpool situation. did megan pick up his wife at their house and that's how he saw her? had they ever formally met? i'm very suspicious of the idea that this guy could convince megan that there is a nursing job available and that she should come for an interview etc etc with no outside help unless she knew him fairly well which doesn't seem to be the case from what i've read.

BBM - yes, I wonder why two different MO's. In that regard I do not think he is related to Holly's abduction. Yet, the amount of planning and the way he focused on Erika after seeing her just one time months before he acted to lure her to a place where he took her, does have me wondering.. and they aren't far apart distance wise, and both are involved in nursing..
 
I still wonder about the guy that accosted the lady in her drive way around the same time that Holly went missing. The suspect ran off when her husband came out side.

Good point - wonder if LE showed her photos of the who took Erika Megan Sharpton...

On second thought, the might have thought a different MO would make it seem like he didn't commit both crimes.

For the most part a MO is just that... how they operate. I can't see pulling off a seemingly clean get away with Holly, then going off and doing exactly the opposite thing leaving a body, car, DNA, etc. Just doesn't make sense. I really don't think the two cases are related myself aside from some general similarities (both victims were nursing students)
