Two men have already been charged with the brutal kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo, but the third man that authorities are expected to arrest and charge has a lengthy rap sheet, with a DUI arrest caught on video before her disappearance.
Shayne Kyle Austin, 29, “was granted immunity in exchange for his cooperation, but officials voided the agreement because he was allegedly not entirely forthcoming with information,” with regards to the 20-year-old’s forcible removal from her home in April 2011 according to The Jackson Sun.
Austin has a lengthy rap sheet, with three DUI arrests and an arrest for possessing a weapon with intent to go armed The Tennessean reported.
Jason Wayne Autry, 39, and Zachary Adams, 29, have been charged with first degree murder and aggravated kidnapping. Witnesses told the grand jury that they saw Bobo alive in the presence of the two men after her kidnapping.
In the video of Austin’s Nov. 20, 2009 arrest, he is seen tripping and almost falling over repeatedly during his field sobriety test.
He was arrested again on Jan. 4, 2010 when a police officer saw him brandishing a shotgun as he walked across a gas station parking lot.
“When the officer approached Austin, according to the report, Austin placed the Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun on the ground,” the newspaper reported.
The Jackson Sun reports that Austin has 10 misdemeanor charges against him in Decatur County, Tennessee.
Autry has 26 felonies on his record and is serving a 15-years to life sentence for a different case.
He and Adams have pleaded not guilty in the death of Bobo.
