Remember the stories about them being close one of those nights to catching them at a cabin? Have to wonder if there was truth to that now.

Said long ago eventually someone involved or with knowledge would one day realize they were next. Or could be next. At some point you look in the mirror and realize they're going to make me vanish too when they get all messed up and paranoid or someone starts a rumor. Your choice is wait for them to come for you or go to authorities with what you know. It looks like that is what's happening.

There are pieces that seem not to fit but I feel confident the TBI has been on the ball all along. The reaction of Karen makes more sense now based on some of these previous incidents coming to light and the reputations of those involved.

As far as people talking about grandparents. Everyone wants the best for their kids and grand kids and will do everything to protect them. But at some point if people are of the high character to which they're given credit they need to do the right thing which is to persuade a younger person to face the consequences of his actions and free himself and his family of that burden. I will reserve judgement of that family member until after we see how this plays out.

So sorry for the Bobo family and the community having to go through this. Breaks my heart.

Once your soul is truly saved and your life devoted to your God, it is easy to tell the truth and ask for forgiveness. In fact, some call it being under conviction.
Agree so true

QUOTE who="Anonymous" Just an FYI: I have a close friend in the TBI. They have devoted untold resources and money into this case. There has never been a time when they have not had someone working on this case.
They have repeatedly had volleys thrown at them for not doing enough. However, they have not gotten a lot of cooperation, especially from the family.
If you want to build a case against the persons responsible for this heinous crime, you have to do it the right way to make sure it sticks.
When everything comes to light, I hope everyone remembers to praise law enforcement as much as some have condemned them.
They have families too and many have sacrificed a lot to try to bring justice to this case.....QUOTE
Anonymous, It only makes sense, the TBI wanted this case solved as soon as possible....imo
I do praise them for all their hardwork. Everyones hard work and prayers. Guess some are just so impatient that we all want this to come to an end and Holly will come home.

There were a lot of people who "knew" and a lot of people who were telling the FBI/TBI that they "knew" because of (this reason or that). You had the fact that they would get high/drunk and boast about it, or the fact that there were locals who had received text messages asking if they could provide an alibi (not for Zack but for his friend)… and you had Zack's girlfriend (who was terrified of him) telling her close friends that she knew he did it and had an idea where Holly was buried. How on earth this wasn't enough reason to get a search warrant before now is beyond me. I don't claim to know the inner workings of the criminal justice system but I do feel that when you have that many people close to him saying "he did it" it would be enough probable cause to at least get the dogs out on his property. What gives??? I have mixed feelings about this because, on one hand I feel vindicated knowing that I (we) were on the right track. On the other hand… I feel angry that nobody would listen to me and EVERYONE ELSE who was saying "LOOK INTO THESE GUYS!!!!" Ultimately, all I want and have EVER wanted was for Holly to get justice and for her family to have closure. GOD BLESS THE BOBO FAMILY!!!
All the heresay in the world is not sufficient for an indictment, let alone a conviction. IMHO, they needed a first-person account, not guesstamony before they could move in a meaningful way. Better t owait than get a dismissal, failure t oindict or mistrial.

Don't take this the wrong way, hate to be a cynic, they all find God when they get CAUGHT! If the exception, I hope you are right.:)

Obviously, ZA was armed with some kind of weapon when police came for him at his girl friend's house. Here is a question for everyone_____ do authorities KNOW for sure that the gang they have been arresting are directly connected to Holly, or, are they among the scum that have their own revolving door with the various county jails? Are they being arrested to see which one "stick's" or other words, which one might squeal information? Or, do they know for a fact that they all are involved? If they are, then we are talking about a huge local drug ring, Local scum bag druggies sell narcotics to their friends; when they don't pay them or incur debt, they go after them, even if they at one time were buddies. Local pushers have to pay THEIR debts to those in surrounding bigger cities, etc. It is a deadly type of mafia; many murders now in the U.S. are the result of these organizations.
Ponderings! Hi there. Hope you are well. I'd like to give my two cents on this. I think that if they were going to do the "arrest them all and see if it sticks" game… they would have done that a long time ago. As much as the TBI/FBI has pissed me off in this case… the one thing I think we can all agree on is that they have been very careful to do or say anything that might give us any hope that they are close or have suspects. If they are being this vocal and open about what they are doing… I think it's safe to assume that they are really on to something. This who "smoke and mirrors" theory that some have is (IMO) the dumbest thing I've heard. This is it. I feel it in my bones and have never felt so sure of anything in my life. That doesn't necessarily mean it will be concluded tomorrow or even next week… but it is certainly the beginning of the end for these smacks!!!! Praise God and God bless the Bobo family!

No need for him to worry about being labeled a snitch at this point; they are probably all going to be "snitching" on one another......QUOTE

For people wondering, they would only set the bail that high for ZA if he was a flight risk. They obviously think he is one since his bail is a million bucks.

What a man's man this Zach character seems to be. Million dollar bond, possible connection to Bobo case and what does he do ... calls out for his grandpappy. How said. Parsons will be a much better community once it rids itself of these methhead losers and those who enable them time and time again.
I agree, but more will just pop up. Way too many children today are being raised in broken homes by druggies and abusers. I was so saddened last night (and frightened) to read the posts and attitude of the niece of VD who was murdered, including her friends posts. Some appeared to not even know who their father was, or at least not for a long time, and it is obvious they were raised form "pillar to post", No wonder they were vulnerable and turned to drugs. These young adults (and some not so young) are legion now in our society. ZA himself had a mother...a PROFESSIONAL TEACHER,,,who is an addict. No doubt his grandparents were too easy on him, and probably were with his mother too. But it really shouldn't have been their responsibility to raise him OR his brother. Grandma is now deceased, and grandpappy is probably worn out..and maybe a little frightened at times too of his own grandchildren.

Anyone ever thought that za told his girlfriend and that he held a gun to her head or knife to her and said if she told he would "gut her". And that made her go to the authorities while he was in jail in Benton county?

I agree ... It seems that they all "find God" or "find Jesus" or "find religion" and the most ironic thing is ... God, Jesus, religion ... They weren't the ones that were ever lost. In order to see that, they needed to look in the mirror. It's a shame that it takes these people getting their butts in a major sling before they realize, "Hey, maybe I should change my ways!" How about living right to begin with and you never have to worry about getting lost or finding your way. Now that's a novel idea, huh?
