NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) — Remains found in rural Decatur County are those of Holly Bobo, a 20-year-old nursing student who was last seen in April 2011, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations said Monday night.

Bobo’s brother told authorities in 2011 he saw a man in camouflage leading her away from their home in the small town of Darden in Decatur County.

It was in Decatur County that the remains were discovered Sunday.

Two men have been indicted in her murder.

Jason Wayne Autry, who is already in prison for an unrelated assault conviction, was indicted on especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder charges by a special grand jury.

Autry, 39, was a longtime friend of Zachary Adams, 29, who was indicted earlier on the same kidnapping and murder charges.

    Hillbilly criminals. The trial should be interesting – especially if the suspects start snitching on each other and the phone video materializes.

    Skip, do you have to condemn an entire segment of the rural population? Your comment is exactly the same as saying: “Nigger criminals”! , or “Urban Scum”: GROW UP, DUDE! BTW, your name, “Skip”, sounds like a “hillbilly” name, so stfu.
