Man suspected in Holly Bobo case speaks out about video

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Investigators believe there could be a video that shows what happened to Holly Bobo, and one man who supposedly knows something about it is now speaking out.

Jeffrey Pearcy is one of the latest men accused in the Bobo case.

"I have no video. I have not seen a video, never even heard of the video until I was questioned about it the day of my arrest," Pearcy said.

Pearcy said he's never met Holly Bobo or any of her family members. And he said he doesn't know the two men charged with her kidnapping and murder, Zach Adams and Jason Autry.

"As far as me being around anyone that would even be affiliated with anything like that, I wouldn't want to hang around people like that. I work, and I come home and I raise kids," Pearcy said.

Yet, Pearcy and his half-brother, Mark Pearcy, now stand accused of hiding some sort of video that could help investigators solve Bobo's murder case.

"I don't know if they're grasping at straws," Jeffrey Pearcy said. "This is the closest thing to a modern-day witch hunt that I've ever seen."

Jeffrey Pearcy now has to wear an ankle monitoring system after going to jail. He also lost his job as a master jeweler.

"They made life a living hell for me," he said.

And he says he's struggling to raise his six kids.

"It's going to cost me the next 25 years of my life that I was planning college, a car. It's taken me from that to where I don't know if I can buy them food next week," he said. "It's not just something you can get back by them saying, 'I'm sorry.' They have destroyed by life."

Jeffrey Pearcy says he wants people to know he's an innocent man.

"I have been up front and honest about everything. I have willingly given them everything. Take it, I mean, it's there," he said.

He also has a message for the Bobo family.

"My heart goes out to the Bobo family. It could have very well been one of my kids. For someone to give them false hope, and that's exactly what's been done to them," he said. "But for the justice system to just haul someone in and destroy their whole life, I mean, there's no sense in that at all."
