LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Police in Little Rock say they know who’s responsible for killing a man back in 2007, but before an arrest can be made, they have to prove the case in court.

“No family should have to live through a situation like this,” says Rosie Bobo, the mother of Corey Bobo.

Corey hasn’t been seen in more than a decade.

“We knew something was wrong,” says Rosie.

The man went missing in November 2007, just 26 years old at the time, Rosie says she knew something was wrong when her son fell off the grid.

“He was a very loving, kind hearted young man. If he could help you, he would,” says Rosie.

Little Rock Police Department (LRPD) Cold Case Special Investigator Tommy Hudson says evidence suggests Corey was shot.

“We’re tracking everybody involved in this case,” says Hudson.

Hudson says evidence found inside an abandoned car in 2007 in St. Francis County makes him think Corey is dead and the veteran homicide detective says he knows who did it.

“What we would like them to know is we’re coming,” says Hudson.

While Hudson and LRPD are on the killer’s path, Hudson says he’s very close to being able to prove it in the court of law who’s responsible and prosecute the people who got rid of Corey’s body which has yet to be found.

“It’s bad enough you kill somebody, but it takes a lot to dispose of a dead person’s body,” says Hudson.

Rosie says an arrest in the case would mean she can finally have a funeral for her youngest son.

“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t reminisce of him being here,” says Rosie.

If you know anything about what happened to Corey or where his body might be, you are asked to call Hudson at (501) 404-3128.

It’s worth noting, this is the same set of investigators that discovered missing woman Ebby Steppach’s body earlier this year.
