Suspect Charged in Holly Bobo Kidnap Murder

Cops charge man, 28, believed responsible for the kidnapping and murder of missing nursing student HOLLY BOBO.

Zachary Adams is being held without bond for his involvement with the missing Tennessee woman and a Decatur County grand jury indicted him on two charges; aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder.

“As this investigation continues, we are still asking for the public’s help and support to help us continue to seek out justice regarding the disappearance of Holly Bobo,” director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Mark Gwyn, said.

“Obviously they’re devastated,” he added, speaking of Bobo’s family. “They’ve been devastated for three years. But hopefully this is the beginning of closure for the Bobo family and they deserve that.”

Bobo was last seen months prior to her 21st birthday April 13, 2011, walking into the woods behind her home with a man dressed in camouflage. Although Adams has been indicted, Gwyn declined to confirm whether or not human remains have been found by investigators.

The family never gave up searching for Bobo, with hundreds of volunteers searching for her and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and FBI brought in cadaver dogs and a small Bobcat excavator machine to scour the property. More than $450,000 in reward money was offered.

It’s is believed that prosecutors will seek the death penalty. The alleged killer will be formally arraigned on next week.
