2 more arrests made in Holly Bobo case

Posted:
DECATURVILLE (WATE) - Authorities have made two additional arrests in the ongoing investigation regarding nursing student Holly Bobo.

Holly Bobo disappeared from her West Tennessee home, near Parsons, on the morning of April 13, 2011.

Jeffery and Mark Pearcy are each charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact.

A warrant obtained by our sister station WKRN in Nashville states that Jeffery Pearcy "had shown a visual recording on an electronic device to an individual." 

That recording "has information that will prove to be beneficial in the prosecution of a current on-going investigation" by the TBI.

Investigators have not said exactly what the visual recording entails or how they originally learned about the recording.

Two other men, Zachary Adams and Jason Autry, remain jailed for first degree murder and aggravated kidnapping.

Shayne Austin, who was initially granted immunity in exchange for his cooperation in the investigation, has not been arrested in connection with the case at this time.

Holly Bobo's body has not been found.
