DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. -- The family of Holly Bobo released a statement Tuesday afternoon.

Attorney Steve Farese read a statement written by family members where they said they are glad to know Holly is at peace and that those "responsible have lost their souls."

Bobo’s remains were found in Decatur County Sunday by two men.

A Nashville-based forensic team is at the site today.

The 20-year-old nursing student was last seen April 13, 2011, by her brother, who told authorities he saw Bobo following a man in hunting clothes into the woods near the family home in Darden.

Zachary Adams faces kidnapping and felony murder charges for Bobo’s death.

Jason Autry is also charged with first-degree felony murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

Decatur County Sheriff Keith Byrd said more arrests are coming.

"They can run, but they can't hide," he said.

Byrd said new information will "drastically change how the district attorney pursues the case."

    I thought Farese was a criminal defense guy. He’s the Bobo family attorney? In any case I’m glad at least now the family knows, and has some type of closure. What a sad thing to endure for all this time.

    This is so sad. She was in the prime of her life and very beautiful. I just hope that when all involved are found guilty they get to sit in ole sparky.

    Since this case broke, I’ve wondered why she was following that guy into the woods the day she went missing, as her brother said he saw???

    Prayers to the Bobo family. I’m so sorry you lost your daughter. Unfortunately we cannot stop evil from existing, but we can prosecute them and put them in jail for the rest of their natural born lives. God will punish them when their time in this world is over.

    I agree with BD Cordova, what what was or wasn’t her brother thinking, looking at his sister follow a man into the wood, STRANGE!
