NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) -- Two men from Henderson County have been arrested in connection to the Holly Bobo case, NewsChannel 5 confirmed on Tuesday.
Court documents obtained by NewsChannel 5 from Henderson County showed that on May 29, Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy was arrested and charged with Tampering with Evidence and Accessory After the Fact.
The affidavit said that Jeffrey Pearcy has a video on an electronic device, "that will prove to be beneficial in the prosecution of a current on-going investigation being conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation."
On Tuesday his attorney, Olin Baker, confirmed the arrests are connected to the kidnapping and murder investigation of nursing student Holly Bobo. He said the charges are related to the possible existence of a video which shows Holly after she was taken from her home in Decatur County three years ago.
"They’re saying there’s either a recording or audio or something on an electronic device that relates to the Holly Bobo case," Baker told NewsChannel 5 on Tuesday.
