Man linked to Holly Bobo murder found dead

A man linked to the kidnapping and murder of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo has committed suicide.

An attorney for Shayne Austin says his client took his own life.

Austin had immunity from criminal charges in the case in exchange for his testimony but prosecutors revoked the deal.

Austin was never indicted in Bobo's death, but two other men are still facing changes.

Bobo's partial remains were found last year.
