A man who authorities had threatened to indict in the Holly Bobo case reportedly took his own life, the Jackson Sun reports. Shayne Austin, who had agreed to cooperate in the case in exchange for immunity, committed suicide according to his lawyer Luke Evans. Prosecutors revoked Austin’s immunity agreement three weeks after it was signed, saying he was not truthful with investigators. A challenge to that action was working its way through the court system. WBIR has the story.
