DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. -- A close friend of the Bobo family said Tuesday was an emotional day for the family, after the TBI returned an indictment on a second man in connection with Holly's death and disappearance.

Family friends said the new developments leave Bobo supporters feeling confident and determined.

"It was good. We've known there were more involved and we want to get the rest of them also," Tammy Ramey said.

Pastor Don Franks, a Bobo family spokesperson, said he was with Holly's parents Tuesday when officials told them about a second indictment in their daughter's murder.

"Shared with them what had happened, indictment had been returned and it was another emotional moment similar to the one we'd gone through several weeks ago," Pastor Franks said.

Long time family friend Tammy Ramey said these new developments have shocked the community.

"We were in search mode for 3 years and then you're told she's dead and she's not coming back and we didn't know how to handle that," Ramey said.

The two men investigators said are responsible for Holly's death will appear in court at the Decatur County Courthouse on Wednesday.

Pastor Franks said the family hopes the new leads will bring them closer to answering their 3-year-old questions.

"The Bobo family is more determined than ever to find justice for their daughter Holly," Pastor Franks said.
