HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. -- Two more men are accused of involvement in Holly Bobo's death.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Jeffrey Pearcy and his brother, Mark Pearcy, have seen and possibly distributed a video of Bobo, taken after she disappeared in April 2011.

Jeffrey Pearcy, appeared before a judge, Wednesday, where he pleaded not guilty to charges of tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact.

"He's not guilty. I'm just interested to see what their theory is or what evidence they think exists," Olin Baker, Pearcy's attorney, said.

Baker said his client has never seen or heard of the alleged video.

"I don't know, this mystical tape nobody's ever seen. My client hasn't seen it. There's no tape, never seen a tape," Baker said.

After court, Pearcy's family members were upset, insisting he is innocent. They said someone is "just mad at him."

"The Pearcy family is shocked. He's a person with no arrests, no priors," Baker said.

Jeffrey Pearcy's attorney said his client does not know Zach Adams or Jason Autry, the two men who have been indicted on counts of kidnapping and murdering Bobo.

Pearcy is now free on $25,000 bond. However, the judge ordered him to wear a GPS tracking device on his ankle.

Jeffrey Pearcy will be back in court in Henderson County on July 1 for a preliminary hearing.

Mark Pearcy, who appeared in Carroll County court on Monday faces the same charges in connection to the video. He is currently in the Carroll County Jail on $65,000 bond.
