Investigation

Robert Arthur Wiles lived in an apartment on the time of his disappearance. It was located on east Charles Street. A neighbor stated Wiles normally kept the apartment neat and orderly. However, when authorities searched it after his apparent abduction, it was in disarray. Papers were strewn on the stairs and the cushions pulled off the couch. Ransom kidnappings are rare in the United states. This holds true particularly concerning ones involving adult males. Police looked into the possibility that Wiles staged his own abduction. But they found there is no evidence to support this theory.

A Suspect

In December 2009, police announced they’d arrested Stobert Lindell “Toby” Holt Jr.. Holt faced charges for first-degree murder, kidnapping and extortion. He also made charges for writing threats to kill or do bodily harm in Wiles’s case. Holt formerly worked as an operation manager for the Lakeland office of National Flight Services. And he was the last person to see Wiles before his disappearance. Authorities later determined the alibi he gave was false and he also lied when he said he didn’t have any guns in his car. The evening of Wiles’s disappearance, according to credit card records, Holt purchased plastic sheeting and two rolls of duct tape. Those items could be used to conceal a body.
