PARSONS, Tenn. -

There are still more questions than answers in the Holly Bobo case, and it's likely to stay that way for quite some time.

With the TBI and other organizations remaining tight-lipped about the ongoing investigation, News 2 reached out to a former homicide investigator.

Clint Vogel is a former Metro Nashville cop. He spent 36 years behind a badge with a bulk of it looking into murders.

Vogel's resume as an investigator includes 21 years working hundreds of murders, including high-profile cases such as the Janet March case and the investigation into serial murderer Paul Dennis Reid.

While Vogel says he does not have any intimate details about the case, there are some things that he just knows by his experience.

"Perhaps in the last 48 hours they have uncovered or discovered physical evidence, and it could provide DNA that says ‘Yeah, this evidence we found on Mr. Adams' property, this definitely belonged to her,'" he said.

A lot of people following the case wonder how they could charge Adams if they do not have a body, something that the TBI has not confirmed.  Vogel says it could mean someone is telling the TBI something about Adams that they previously didn't know.

"Perhaps he had an accomplice and that accomplice is now jammed up," Vogel said. "Maybe he bragged to someone like a cellmate or other inmates."

He continued, "He might have had a girlfriend or close acquaintance that he bragged to. They're starting to build a rather strong circumstantial case. You don't need a body to make the case."

Vogel said he would not be shocked if there are more suspects revealed as the case moves forward.

Adams is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday although its unlikely investigative facts will be revealed.

The court appearance will likely be more procedural, with the judge asking if he can afford an attorney and if he understands the charges against him.

    (CNN) - When many people sneeze, it's instinctive for others to respond by offering a "bless you" in the person's direction. That gesture got a Tennessee student kicked out of class this week after violating a classroom rule. When high school senior Kendra Turner said, “bless you,” to a classmate who sneezed, she said that her teacher told that kind of comment was for church.
