They went on a double date with Holly and Drew to go to the Coon Hunt on April 9 at the Decatur County Fairgrounds. They got there at 10 or 10:30.
She remembers something odd that occurred at the fairgrounds. They entered a building at the fairgrounds and were looking at the local vendors, looking at dog collars and dog leashes. She was people watching. She saw a man to her left wearing camouflage, standing still. He was tall and fat. She saw him on his cell phone looking down looking at her and Holly, scooting dirt with his foot and looking up on occasion at them, it happened 5 or 6 times, 10-20 feet away.
Candace felt uncomfortable and they left. She tugged on Justin's sleeve and said "let's go", she never mentioned it to anyone that day. A few days later, she learned that Holly was missing. Karen Bobo reached out to her days later.
Karen asked if she saw anything odd, she said she did. She then reported what she saw to police and assist a sketch artist. She begins to cry. They display the sketch on the screen to jury. She shows a photo of a person and is asked who it is and she says it's the person that she saw at the fairgrounds. She met again with law enforcement about the photograph of the man and was asked the height and weight of the person in the photo. She gave them the description. The photo is of Shayne Austin.
