Holly Bobo Missing And Endangered: Are Suspects Naming Themselves- Odd Dodd?

Darden, TN–


On the eve of the 4 week anniversary of missing Darden, TN nursing student, Holly Bobo, new investigative details are being learned about the case. Two unofficial persons of interest have taken their case “public” in a way.

While blinkoncrime.com was aware of this information, a decision was made to withhold it in the interests of the cases “active” status previously.

That was, until today, when one of the known person’s of interests in Holly’s disappearance, outed himself publicly.

Jonathan Dodd, son of Bradley Grafton Dodd, and Dena Logan Dodd, chose the Parsons topix forum to “defend” himself against what he termed “death threats”.

Blink, Editor In Chief of www.blinkoncrime.com, was able to confirm the poster on the topix forum was indeed, Jon Dodd.

Speaking exclusively to www.blinkoncrime on the condition of anonymity, an extended family member of the Dodd family, sheds more light on Master Dodd’s claims.

“.. Yes, that is definitely him. I have no idea how he can say he does not know the Bobo family, he went to Scotts Hill with Holly for a short time. Karen Bobo, Holly’s Mom, worked for Grafton Dodd, his grandfather, when he was the principle of the Parson’s junior High when it was still there, Brad and Grafton are on the school board, there is no way that is true what is said.


Jon Dodd High School List From His myspace


When he is saying something was stolen from the property, he is talking about the ATV you wrote about before, when I saw that, I knew you were aware of him.   Sandy  called the sheriffs department before she knew that Holly was missing to report that their ATV was stolen. Sandy is also the cheer leading coach at Riverside High, since forever, and she got into some minor trouble a few years back because she got caught rigging the tryouts. Nothing major, but everyone knew about it. Dena, his Mom, was a teacher at Riverside shortly after he got transferred, which is weird again.

Everyone in this family has been covering for Jon since he was a kid. I could not believe when he stabbed Brad with a scissors when he was about 8 1/2, there was a big cover up. Last year Dena moved to Gwinnett County because the grands let him get away with anything. He has a baby with Shelby Sellers and nobody really even knew about that until after.

Jon went to the great-grandparents for a while in Arab, Ala in 2006 after the girl was killed in the car accident that got his ass beat up when he said she deserved it, and again, nobody said a word. Brad and Dena started up that Boy Scouts thing for him and (redacted by blink).

What is he talking about? What does donate DNA mean? O that is totally him, I can tell by the “I get paid to hunt” or whatever. Speaking of hunting, the abandoned cabin that volunteers found, when Grafton was told, was when he refused permission for any other searches and they got a warrant. Grafton and Sandy were seen removing a mattress from that part of the property, the one they found in the place where the outhouses were used recently. (redacted) saw him in WalMart, he looked at her and said he did not do it, I swear. Really scary.

He (Jon) did not donate DNA, it was taken from him in the parking lot of Tuckers Diner, he did not have a choice. The LE came there and showed some papers. Grafton’s was taken too, but I don’t know were, I heard it was at the area of the Pugh property, by that Shayne Austin’s parents house.

Another doozie…”

The X Factor

A former boyfriend of Holly Bobo’s, Blake Barnett, is also doing nothing to avoid being scrutinized. It is clear from his facebook postings that he is aware of his “celebrity”, and that folks following this case, are reading.

While it does not make him a bad guy, we have confirmed that he has had a background of  alleged violence, in a former relationship with Holly Bobo.

He was the first name utttered by Holly Bobo’s parents, Dana and Karen, when they learned of her abduction.

That said, there is no known evidence linking Mr. Barnett to Holly’s disappearance.

Barnett is no stranger to violence, unfortunately, Blake, his brother and sister lost their parents Timothy and Janice in a brutal murder in 1993.

John Robinson, with actus reus assistance from his wife Kimberly, murdered both of the Barnett’s because they were after him for bounced checks.

Amelia, Blake’s little sister, was left in her crib for 48 hours before police found her while looking for the Barnett’s.  She survived.

There have been no official suspects or persons of interest named in the disappearance of Holly Bobo in 4 weeks.

There has not been a LE update to her case since May 2.

The search effort for Holly Bobo continues.

    They will. Really amazing what a detox will do to a person coming down from meth, and really glad. God Bless Holly and her family.

    We are going to know what we really wish we didn’t, I am afraid.

    Hi Blink

    Now that two people have been arrested and charged. Do you think this is the start of this group of friends turning on each other.

    Definitely. There are a few informants involved.

  7. MandyVZ says:

    The press conference raised so many questions. Sworn statements from people who SAW Holly in the company of these men AFTER her disappearance? Who saw her and why did they not report it then? If they DID report it, why wasn’t it acted on?

  8. Jane says:

    RE#6 So I heard on news a second person, Jason Autry has been charged in Holly’s murder. Has anyone ever heard his name mentioned in this case? My prayers for the Bobos. I just can’t imagine…

    Yes, it was mentioned here by me. It is my belief there will be further arrests. I can’t say if they will be in direct relation to her abduction and murder but definitely wrt the parallel investigation going on here I have been alluding to since the beginning.


  9. jeff says:

    Hi Blink

    Do you think there is going to be a lot of people charged in this case the further it goes on. Seems a lot of people might of lied the first go around of questioning.

    I don’t know what your definition is of a lot- so I will simply say yes, as I have said from the beginning this is a multi-person effort.

    I will be publishing an update tomorrow.

  10. Cindy says:

    Isn’t there a group of men known as the “A” team that Zach Adams and Jason Autry were part of? Or is this just local talk?

    They were well known in the community for their drug use, violence and criminal records.

    Thank you so much for your post! That was another name (JWA) that’s been tossed around since Holly went missing.

    I’m not sure I want to know the truth…just that she’s resting in the arms of the Lord. I feel so much pain for her family.

    May His rod and staff comfort Holly’s family and friends.


    You and me both FriendLY. She is definitely with the Lord.
    There are days where I fight the lesson. Sometimes on purpose.

    This is going to be that case, again.


  13. Hummingbird says:

    I can’t wait for your update tomorrow dear Blink rock On!!

    Editing may push to Monday, lol

  14. thuffhill says:

    Do you beleive she was kept alive for hours or days after her kidnapping? Also, could the witnesses that saw her alive AFTER her kidnapping be charged with a crime?

    I am going to address this in my update of her case. I am not sure if I will be publishing today or Monday- but sadly, yes, I do.

  15. Ode says:

    Blink…I am glad to wait but am on pins and needles to connect a few dots here. I have kept up reading about Holly and I am sooooo sorry for what Holly’s family has had to go through and hear. The born again “yuuupp” inmate, second charged piece of…looked so big and I could not help but mentally put a picture of Holly against him and it was horrible. I have read some pretty disturbing accounts of what Holly may have gone through. I pray for Holly’s family..It is just so disturbing.


  16. Cindy says:

    May Peace be with Holly, what an awful thought that she may have been held alive for hours/days….but for what purpose? What’s the motive in her kidnapping?

    Just makes me sick what’s happened.

  17. Ragdoll says:

    We can be patient friendLY. Family first, taking care of you…always priority, or this can’t be possible.

    Holly knows, we know, I pray her family knows, that you’ve been their #1 advocate for her justice. The update will come out when it’s ready. You know all about timing, beyond your control ;) I KNOW the good Lord has hand in your life and what you do.

    God bless your heart, lassie~ I keep you in my prayers <3

    I know Holly is at rest. She's knows a peace our minds can't comprehend.

    I read the book a few years ago, but y'all need to see Heaven Is For Real. It will bring you comfort and peace that can only come for the Spirit.

    Thank you friendy! You validated my very thoughts.

    I have NO doubt in my mind that there was no honor or reverence for God, when he pledged his innocence. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    You are right on the money…he wasn’t thinking of God. He wasn’t thinking of Holly. He was saving his sorry @$$, and if swearing to his Almighty Father makes him credible, so be it.

    Holly may have suffered, but it’s done. God brought her rest and HE WAS WITH HER EVERY STEP, at her right side. He never forsaken her. He promises us He never would, nor leave us. Holly was NEVER alone, praise the Lord.

    May His promises bring her family comfort xo

    There is no greater gift FriendLY.

    That said, there are cases that test the limits of my faith. Whether I studied them or worked on them myself- I could recite them instantly.

    I am thankful for God’s guidance and that he was with Holly when she needed him. What hardens my heart, and that is likely a poor descriptor in my profession, is that he could not intervene. I am not asking for explanation or comfort in any way. I will pray for that.

    These freaks are barbarians that should have been stopped years ago- I do not understand the leniency of these sentences. Shoot your own Mother in the knee and get 6 months?

    If I were on a committee deciding the new state motto for Tennessee it would be “The Plea Bargain State.”

    How these meth pukes and their ilk were even out of custody to harm Holly is something that I cannot fathom- and needs to be addressed.

    It is not just the act- it is the access they never should have had

  19. M Leach says:

    Is Jon Dodd involved/

  20. Ragdoll says:

    I understand friendLY. Remember, our faith will be tried and tested, especially when it comes to the unexplainable. The good Lord is so OK with you being real with him…even being angry. He gets it.

    We must remember that God gave us another gift….choice. These monsters made a heinous (understatement) choice. My wisdom, learning from my own anger within my heart and towards God (for many things throughout my life), lead me to lean not on my own understanding (proverbs 3:5), and that there are some things at certain times in our lives our hearts will simply not comprehend. All I know is that God is all knowing, and constant. His love never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow…and that brings me great comfort.

    Give it to Him and let Him help you work through it. Forgiveness is about bringing peace within your spirit and you deserve His peace.

    I pray this has helped you a little.

    Someone put it to me like this not all that long ago: I’d rather be insane, institutionalize and have Jesus, then just be insane and institutionalized. Whatever I go through, I’m grateful He walks beside me. I don’t know how people w/o faith do it. I just don’t.

    Be mad, but be made with Him at your side <3 <3 <3

    Posted with love~~~

    It is not just the act- it is the access they never should have had

    I wanted to address this to bring clarity to the truth…

    There is a spiritual warfare and it’s on so many levels, it’s easy to become desensitized to it. Obviously, it’s global. We see it on tv. It’s also in our everyday lives. When there’s tension in our home, I know who’s exasperating the situation. It’s as simple as saying, as Jesus did, ‘Satan, stand behind me, you’re nothing but stumbling block’.

    These men obviously do not respect the authority of our Maker. It makes it easier for the enemy to steal, kill and destroy, by using them to commit murder against a child of God; Holly.

    FriendLY, doing what you do, may I suggest you google spiritual warfare? It will lend insight to why bad things happen to good people. I always believe that knowledge is power.

    All glory be to God xo xo xo

    Hi Blink,
    You mentioned an update. Have you posted it yet? I just don’t want to miss it.

    Nope, still working at it as there are some developments over the last few days. I will post the link here when I do if you set your RSS feed.

  24. Ragdoll says:

    Apollies if this has been brought up already….


    Zachary Adams brother (I believe his name is Dylan) is in jail….related to Holly Bobo’s murder? Judging by the threat he made, he (Dylan) knows where Holly is buried, TOO…and ‘hole’ comes up again.

    Keep going back to Natalie Bobo and what she knows.

  25. Ragdoll says:

    John Dylan Adams’ mugshot:


    ….and according this, witnesses saw suspect with Holly Bobo AFTER her abduction. If they saw her, she saw them? Why didn’t she scream for help??????

    -According to the Jackson Sun, prosecutors plan to indict Shayne Kyle Austin, who had previously been granted immunity in exchange for his cooperation.


  26. Rose says:

    @ragdoll. good to see you. I was in a hotel with TV the last week (ours is in an attic I don’t frequent), and whether it was Law & Order or other shows, I was shocked at the content in terms of desensitizing my 20 yo to evil as an expectable part of life. It’s compares to how strange either salt or sugar taste upon palate reintroduction after years of dietary elimination.

    What interests me is the brazenness of picking up Holly at home. At that time.
    If mother or brother left at the same time as Holly did, or were observant & came out,
    what would this crew have done? I don’t see the arrested individuals as detailed planner/plotters.
    Why there; why that time of day?

  27. Rose says:

    So what lead the “meth pukes” to focus on Holly and
    show up at HER home?!

    Right, exactly. Getting there, lol.

  28. kel says:

    Read here daily for years but rarely post. Anxiously awaiting your update on Holly and hope you still intend to do a retrospect posting on Caylee Anthony case. You said someday you would. There were some clues never publically expounded on that you said you would discuss some day…. Thank you Blink for all your work!

  29. Jane says:

    Hurrry!!!! Also, I was curious if you think these “meth pukes” will possibly be tied to other missing persons in area. Oh my…this is just so sad and frightening.

  30. Rose says:

    What local residents’ meth labs have been identified?

    Excellent question, I think the overview when I publish will give a fair climate on that.

    Till then- get comfy to google on the floor (still lol erose).
    It is an absolute epidemic. I will admit stats and probs are not my strongsuit, but one could literally predict how many methheads they could potentially encounter in a day here. With the exception of Holly, this sweet girl.

    Eastern TN:



  31. Rose says:

    wAs this about meth thirst, or rape, or both?

    Efforts to sustain liberty in the face of same.

    I admire your thoroughness Ms B

    Thanks JeffD. I think we are all going to be a little angrier till this is over. For me, there is nothing that upsets me more than when I see on paper that something like this was preventable.


  33. Cindy says:

    “Preventable” as in saying those involved should have been incarcerated on other charges before this occurred.

    One thing that bothers me is that Holly was very young, only “20″, and these guys a a bit older in age. So that makes me think she was a target. For what, why? Could there possibly me any truth to old rumors that she was taken to be sold for $? Sounds a little crazy, I know, but “meths” are not known for rationality.

    Great to see you too, lovely friendy. Yours is a great question…and honestly, one I never even considered. They were staking the Bobo’s home to learn their routine or talked to someone who knew their routine? Perhaps they lack common sense or judgement as opposed to being brazen? I mean…downright stupid. Sharp as a sack of wet mice. It seems they react with no plans. IDK. Blathering here.

    I’m a sensitive spirit, Rose. So is my son. I don’t want to become desensitized by the trash. I don’t want to buy into it. I’d rather turn off the tv and pick up a good book, or have a good game (who am I kidding…..but it’s family time)…Go Fish.

    You are right…ignoring evil isn’t the answer. Knowledge, to me, is always power. I’m fortunate that we have good communication. My better half and I, ask him questions while watching movies, tv, internet…. (what he thinks about what a character did or said…was it a good thing; did it help someone or hurt them..etc). We don’t shield him. I’m by no means the perfect mom…but he knows he can come to us, ask any question, and we’ll give him an honest answer. Rather have him hear it from us, then some other kid’s version, kwim? And Lord have mercy, he’s asked some doozies. He goes to middle school gr. 5 -9. He hears A LOT. My fave….what is tea bagging? True story.

    Evil is prominent, and so is prayer in our home <3

    Better quit while I'm….before B banished me from BOC. Heehehheheee.

  35. Ragdoll says:

    Hope the link helped, friendLY. I do understand how you feel and can’t take that away from you xo

    xoxoxo FriendLY. To be honest, I am working so hard I don’t have the luxury to think on it, which is necessary at times as you know.


  36. jeff says:

    Hi Blink

    Do you think the Bobo family can seek legal action against the county for letting these criminals run around free. Reading the amount of offenses these guys have against them is absurd. Second do you think these guys might be responsible for any other missing person cases in that area or around that area

    I think the Bobo family may have legal remedy in a few areas, but it is too soon to tell what those avenues may be, imo. They will need a great deal of the facts of the investigation, which will be proprietary until they are released really, unless the Bobo’s attempt to subpoena them via discovery in a tort they file. I have no doubt they will seek civil remedy, however. Let me go on record to say that the criminal informant/defendant status for use in criminal investigations is a broken down failure and needs oversight- from my purview in this case.

  37. Rollermonkey says:

    Anything suggesting Holly was actually a target? Could she have walked out that morning and witnessed something she was not suppose to see? The group of evil pigs mentioned (so far) had a history of theft from neighbor’s property…

    I have reason to believe she was the intended target, yes.

    For some reason your answer makes everything feel even worse… if that makes sense at all. It is horrifying no matter what.

    I know, I am not going to make anyone feel better about this case, I wish I could. One of the hardest to stomach for me personally.

  39. Ragdoll says:

    Possible third arrest, upcoming:



    Same name that was thrown around with Zach Adams and Jason Autry’s name when Holly initially went missing.

    http://tinyurl.com/kbceqgv (previous mugshot of Shane Kyle Austin)

    Dylan Adams, Zach’s brother may face a possible arrest, imo (according to accusations made by his brother, Zach, that he’s the one who put Holly in the hole).

    A very different kind of A-team… All rejects of the low life lifestyle.

    Ragdoll, I can not find a link that Dylan put Holly in a hole. I think Zach threatened his brother to put him in the same hole Holly was in because IMO Dylan was the first one to roll over on his brother. I may be wrong.

    Blink, Do u have a new estimation date for the update? Not trying to rush you, just anxious.

  42. [...] the search of 29 year old Zachary Rye Adam’s residence in conjunction with the abduction of Holly Lynn Bobo.  Bobo, a 20 year old nursing student, was abducted from her Darden, TN home nearly 3 years [...]
