Among the items found in Bobo’s car were a piece of her artwork and a postcard from a friend, as seen above. In writing the series on Bobo’s disappearance, Columbia County Sheriff Mike Loe granted us access to the evidence compiled over the last 33 years and currently stored in the evidence room at the Columbia County Detention Center. We spent several hours digging through the evidence and Loe’s case files, and Loe was kind and generous enough to spend much of that time explaining those items to us.
Granted, we cannot release all information we discovered during the course of our research. For example, we elected not to identify witnesses, which is why you’ll see names have been blacked out in some statements we’ve posted. We felt no need to identify those individuals in the event that they may someday have to testify about what they observed all those years ago.
