Shayne Austin, Man Tied to Holly Bobo Murder Case, Found Dead

By    |   Monday, 23 Feb 2015 08:05 PM

A man connected to the kidnapping and murder of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo has been found dead.

Shayne Austin, who wasn’t indicted in the case, apparently committed suicide, according to his attorney, WSMV-TV reported.

"Obviously a tragic loss for the Austin family and they are beside themselves with grief," Austin’s attorney Luke Evans said, according to the station. "It's unfortunate the government came in and made allegations without basis. People had to live with those allegations ... under the cloud of those allegations."

Bobo, 20, disappeared in April 2011 and her remains were found in September 2014. Zach Adams and Jason Autry are charged with first-degree murder and aggravated kidnapping.

Austin had been offered immunity for his testimony in the case, but prosecutors allegedly revoked the agreement, saying Austin was not being truthful and was not fully cooperating, the station reported. Austin then filed a civil suit against the state.

“This case had been very stressful,” Evans said, according to WKRN-TV.
