Authorities not commenting on possible new Holly Bobo evidence

LEXINGTON, Tenn. (WTVF) - Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation are not commenting on the possible existence of a video that could possible be connected to the kidnapping of nursing student Holly Bobo.

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 Monday, Officials would not say to which case that video was connected.

Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy was currently being held in Henderson County without bond.

NewsChannel 5 also obtained court documents from Decatur County, which suggested another man, Mark Lynn Pearcy, may have also appeared in that video.

Mark Pearcy was arrested on May 29 and also charged with Accessory After the Fact and Tampering with evidence. Those documents showed that, according to a witness, Mark Pearcy was identified as being in that video when it was recorded but officials will not comment on the content of the video.

Mark Pearcy was transferred from Decatur County to Carroll County last week, where he has been held without bond.
