Brothers Mark Pearcy and Jeffrey Pearcy have been arrested in the ongoing Holly Bobo investigation, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday.

The Pearcy brothers are charged with Tampering with Evidence and Accessory After the Fact, said Josh DeVine, TBI Public Information Officer.

"However, out of respect for the judicial process, we cannot speak to the particular possible pieces of evidence in this case," DeVine said in a statement to FOX13 News, "We continue our work to follow the leads wherever they might lead. We won’t stop until we find a sense of justice and closure for the family and friends of Holly Bobo."

Olin Baker, Jeffrey Pearcy's attorney, told FOX13 News his client was questioned about a video connected with the case.

"TBI has obtained a warrant basically on a bunch of hearsay," said Baker, "There was nothing really substantial in the warrant and brought Mr. (Jeffrey) Pearcy in and attempted to question him about the existence of some video evidence that Mr. Pearcy maintains doesn't exist,  he's never seen, doesn't know anything about."

Two other suspects are in custody in the Bobo case: Zachary Adams and Jason Autry are both charged with aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder in the 2011 disappearance of Bobo.

Don Franks, the Bobo family spokesperson, said following the latest arrests, "There's a new normal in their life and they're trying to go on day-by-day by the grace of God but I'm sure as these developments come out it's a very difficult thing. We're thankful law enforcement is still working very diligently getting on the case."
