Normal New Information Surfaces in the Kidnapping of Whitney Duncan’s Cousin, Holly Bobo

Post by raine1953 on Mon May 13, 2013 3:02 am

Just over two years after she was kidnapped from her home in Decatur County, Tenn., new information has come to light in the disappearance of country singer Whitney Duncan‘s cousin, Holly Bobo.

Bobo was last seen by her brother, Clint Bobo, walking into the woods behind their home with a man dressed in camouflage. Clint believed the man was her boyfriend and that they were having a breakup conversation, so he did not pursue them, not realizing it was a kidnapping until it was too late. He later fell under suspicion, but a new team of investigators his family have engaged says they have checked his story out and cleared him.

According to Nashville’s WSMV, the new team is led by Sheila Wysocki, who made national headlines by solving the cold case murder of her college friend. She now heads a non-profit organization called Without Warning, which has thrown its full resources into the Bobo case. The team has already uncovered startling new evidence and developed a disturbing theory about the crime. After studying a digital “map” left by tracing Bobo’s cell phone, they have concluded that the perpetrator almost had to be someone local who knew the back roads — and who eventually doubled back to almost where the abduction took place.

Duncan rose to fame from appearances on ‘Nashville Star’ and ‘Survivor.’ She stays active in the case via her Twitter account, where she frequently updates her followers on the latest developments in the case and urges her friends in country music to re-share the information as far and wide as possible.

Bobo’s family has not given up hope that she will still be found alive, spending virtually all of their available time handing out flyers, organizing searches and prayer vigils for the young woman.

There is an $85,000 reward for information leading to Bobo’s return. Anyone who might have information concerning Holly Bobo’s disappearance is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

Normal New Information Surfaces About Regarding Whitney Duncan's Kidnapped Cousin

Post by raine1953 on Tue May 14, 2013 12:47 am

Holly Bobo, the kidnapped cousin of Whitney Duncan, may have been kidnapped by her former boyfriend. Clint, Bobo's bro, says he saw the pair bickering before her disappearance; police initially interrogated Clint, now they're listening to him.

According to Nashville source WSMV, a crime solving organization, Without Warning, has taken a peek into the case, tracing the digital tail of Bobo's cell phone.

The group found that the perpetrator was likely a local of Decatur County, Tennessee, as s/he drove along the locale's back roads, eventually doubling back to the site of the abduction.

There is an $85,000 reward for information leading to Bobo's return. Information concerning Holly Bobo's disappearance may be directed to 1-800-TBI-FIND. Follow Duncan on Twitter for updates on the case.

Normal Holly Bobo's phone pings signal near home hours after abduction

Post by raine1953 on Tue May 14, 2013 12:53 am

PARSONS, TN (WSMV) -
In what could be the most startling piece of evidence yet in the mysterious disappearance of Holly Bobo comes proof that whoever grabbed the young nursing student - and her cell phone - went back to Bobo's home the very same day.

Bobo's abductor made a big mistake by leaving her cell phone turned on, so with the help of GPS tracking, the location of Bobo's phone can be plotted on a map that traces a path through Parsons that eventually heads back in the direction of the Bobo family home.

Keep in mind, Bobo was abducted at about 8 a.m., and the first law enforcement officer arrived at the Bobo home at 8:11 a.m.

Normal Holly Bobo: Her brother speaks out

Post by raine1953 on Tue May 14, 2013 12:56 am

PARSONS, TN (WSMV) -- The search for Holly Bobo has been as agonizing as it is puzzling. Two years have passed since the young nursing student vanished into the woods near her West Tennessee home without a trace.

Law enforcement and volunteers have devoted countless man-hours searching the woods and fields near Bobo's home, but a new team of investigators led by nationally known Brentwood mom Sheila Wysocki is uncovering new developments in the case.

Wysocki received national attention for obtaining a private investigator license and solving her college roommate's murder 20 years after the crime, and she now runs Without Warning: Fight Back with the goal of preventing assaults through self-defense and education.

With the blessing of the Bobo family, Wysocki brought together the full resources of her not-profit group and is working to help the Bobos find out, once and for all, what happened to Holly.

"The first time that I met Sheila, I just instantly liked her. We just clicked," said mother Karen Bobo. "I just feel like somehow, some way, Sheila and her team are going to help us."

Before the Without Warning team could get started, it had a very awkward assignment - it needed to be sure that Holly Bobo's brother, Clint Bobo, had nothing to do with the crime.

Clint Bobo is the only witness to his sister's abduction from her family's Parsons, TN, home in Decatur County on April 13, 2011.

He has been interrogated for more than 17 hours, strip searched, polygraphed and even hypnotized to find out exactly what he knows and remembers. He also turned over his hard drive and cell phone, yet some outsiders still think he had something to do with the crime.

Clint Bobo said he never felt hated until his sister was abducted. He had never been called a criminal, much less a killer, until his sister disappeared.

But ever since Holly Bobo went missing, Clint Bobo has received death threats and has been accused of planning or actually killing his sister Holly Bobo.

"They're warped. In my mind, they're warped," said Karen Bobo, about those who accuse her son of involvement.

Remarkably, it is Clint Bobo's role as an eyewitness that made him a suspect. Sound asleep that April day, Clint Bobo woke up to the sound of his dog barking then heard voices.

Normal Holly Bobo's family attacks free speech in campaign against TBI official

Post by raine1953 on Fri May 24, 2013 1:36 am

On May 22, 2013 The Tennessean shared a video of Karen Bobo and family -- loved ones of missing woman Holly Bobo. In the video Karen slams TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm over a tweet that she claims was in a "victorious" tone -- but it seemed to be anything but that. In a display that appears to be an attack on freedom of speech, the Bobos say that they feel like the focus is not on Holly when it should be. But aren't they only further taking away that focus by slamming the TBI? Shouldn't one of Karen's very rare media appearances be used to beg for more answers instead of attacking someone for tweeting about a news story?

Over the course of the Holly Bobo disappearance it's been extremely clear where the answers are truly located, so when the TBI revealed "Without Warning" to be the frauds that they were, it seems that they do have reason to feel at least slightly victorious. The TBI has been diligent in keeping on the search for Holly Bobo, but each time the Bobo family addresses the media their stories change. So if the Bobo have the freedom to continually change their stories, why cant members of the TBI have their own freedoms of speech? These latest updates are just messy, and symbolic of the entire case. Kristin Helm tweeted from her personal account and said nothing that contained sensitive information about the missing woman's case. Instead she simply took a photo of the newspaper on her table, and said it was a "great day," while the coffee was just brewing. To be speculative it seems as though her comment was more sarcastic than victorious, but in no way was her tweet offensive or insensitive to the search for Holly or the investigation.

Kristin Helm has since apologized and removed the tweet from her personal account, according to this post, but did she really need to do that? Are citizens of Tennessee not allowed to have "a great day" on Twitter without this family launching a slam campaign against them? When will the family get back on point and actually push for awareness in this woman's disappearance?

Normal Group exploited Holly Bobo case with dangerous lies

Post by raine1953 on Fri May 24, 2013 6:20 pm

May 18, 2013
On May 17, 2013 WREG News out of Decatur County, Tenn. dropped a bombshell update regarding search group Without Warning. It seems that the nonprofit organization Without Warning lied about their so called investigation into Holly Bobo's disappearance. This despicable act was confirmed by the TBI (Tenn. Bureau of Investigation), who has officially condemned the group founded and represented by Sheila Wysocki. What's worse is that this organization stands by what it did is as a confirmed publicity stunt to prove that they could any details surrounding this disappearance a "ratings winner."

It's been several weeks that people have believed Without Warning, and only this week did law enforcement dispute the claims. The amount of time taken to end the lies is definitely questionable, but all that matters is that the truth is known. Still, Holly is missing so none of this situation did anything to help.

As someone who has covered this case from the very first day, it's extremely disappointing to see someone like Sheila Wysocki take advantage of and exploit Holly in a way to draw publicity to her group. Furthermore her group's lies only added more fuel on the fire of scrutiny against Clint Bobo, who is already under enough public suspicion for changing his story so many times after reportedly watching his sister be abducted from their property. When Wysocki lied about cell phone ping tracking near the home, she only added more suspicion against the family. Her lies were downright dangerous.

This May 18, 2013 Tennessean report shares that internal emails belonging to the group were turned over to the TBI before the TBI condemned their actions. It's been determined that the group knowingly put out false information. SheilaWysocki reportedly said:

"You all have to realize that we have been able to make any story surrounding this case a ratings winner and online success which was the goal."


This despicable behavior only puts further negativity on a case that is already negative enough. Holly Bobo vanished over two years ago, and this current publicity stunt created false leads and wasted resources -- resources that are already spread thin.Will Without Warning's public image suffer for this? It's very likely. Their behavior affected the Holly Bobo investigation negatively, so it'd be only fitting. How many more people will this organization exploit for their own publicity?

Normal Search warrant being executed in Holly Bobo case

Post by Wrapitup on Fri Feb 28, 2014 1:03 pm

Jackson Sun 1:29 p.m. EST February 28, 2014

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is executing a search warrant in relation to the disappearance of Holly Bobo, according to Illana Tate, spokeswoman for the TBI.

Tate said she cannot give any further details and can only confirm that the TBI executed search warrants at various locations in connection with the case.

"To say we have a suspect in this case would be premature," she wrote in an email "We have been working leads on this case which led to the search warrant executions. There is no other information about this case that I can release."

Bobo was abducted at age 20 on the morning of April 13, 2011. Holly was last seen being led away from her home in Darden, in Decatur County, by a man dressed in camouflage.

Information about Holly Bobo's disappearance should be reported to 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463) or [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].

The thing about Search Warrants is that they are rarely issued without solid probable cause.

Sure hope the search comes up with some clues or resolution to what happened to Holly!

Normal BREAKING ~ Suspect, Zachary Adams, indicted for kidnapping, murder of Holly Bobo.

Post by Wrapitup on Wed Mar 05, 2014 6:52 pm

Posted: Mar 05, 2014 10:55 AM EST
Updated: Mar 05, 2014 7:11 PM EST
Reported by Carley Gordon
Reported by Kimberly Curth




Prosecutors could seek the death penalty against the man accused of kidnapping and murdering missing nursing student Holly Bobo.

Investigators returned Sunday to site of a renewed search for information in the 2011 disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo.

The effort was scaled back from the response first seen Friday, and incoming freezing rain and ice threatened to slow progress.

A small Bobcat excavator was seen being brought in on a trailer Sunday afternoon. It wasn't clear where on the property the equipment was used.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Federal Bureau of Investigation executed several search warrants Friday in connection with the case, but have said little else about what they are looking for.

TBI Director Mark Gwyn held a press conference Friday afternoon near the scene of one of the searches, the home of Zachary Adams. The property is on Adams Lane, just south of Interstate 40 in Decatur County – about 15 miles from Bobo's home.

Adams was arrested by Decatur County authorities Friday afternoon on unrelated aggravated assault charges.

"Early this morning, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation began executing search warrants in Decatur and surrounding counties," said Gwyn. "We're also conducting several interviews in Decatur and surrounding counties."

The TBI has blocked access to Adams Lane and several marked cars are in the front yard. A cadaver dog from the Shelby County Sheriff's Office has also been brought to the scene.

Saturday's search included a new focus on a pond and an abandoned home near the property.

Authorities brought at least two vehicles on flatbed tow trucks to the scene Friday, including a PT Cruiser that appeared to be riddled with bullet holes.

"This is a very important time in this investigation. We're not going to say or do anything at the point to interfere with this investigation," said Gwyn. "Hopefully we'll be able to return Holly home safely to her parents. That's our goal."

Agents were also seen from Air 4 sifting dirt, looking for clues in an area behind Adams' home.

Adams had been released Wednesday from the Benton County jail after posting bond on drug-related charges prior to his arrest Friday.

"It's no surprise. Drugs have been a big factor in his life. It's changed him. He's no longer the Zach that I grew up with," said Danielle Darnell, a friend of Bobo's who knows Zach Adams.

It's been nearly three years since Bobo disappeared from her family's home in Parsons, TN.

Bobo was last seen on the morning of April 13, 2011, when she was seen by her brother being led away from her Darden, TN, home.

The Bobos' family pastor said he has been in contact with Holly's family much of the day Friday. The Rev. Don Franks, pastor at Corinth Baptist Church, said the family is hopeful at the latest search.

"We still believe deep down in our hearts that she's alive. Developments in nearby states, these ladies that have been missing 10 years or whatever, brought renewed hope to the family and this community," Franks said. "I think I've said it before, we're country people, country folks, and we're just not going to give up on finding Holly."

The massive search began just one day before Bobo's friends and family planned to gather for a day of prayer. Hundreds visited the family church Saturday.

"I know the family needs our prayers, and we pray she'll be found and found alive," said Vicki Forrester, who lives across from the Adams Lane search scene.

Gwyn did not indicate what prompted the agency to ask for the search warrants.

"We've come a long way and it's taken a long time to get to the point we are now," said Gwyn. "Now's not the time to put anything in jeopardy."

"We believe there are people, individuals, in Decatur County that have information in the disappearance of Holly Bobo, and we're asking them to come forward," Gwyn said.

If you have information that could help investigators, call 1-800-TBI-FIND.

In a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn announced a Decatur County grand jury had issued a true bill and indicted Zachary Rye Adams, 29, for especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder.

"We've spent hundreds of hours on the case. Hundreds of searches conducted. It was expensive and exhausting," said Gwyn. "Please pray for the family as the investigation continues."

Bobo disappeared outside her Darden, TN, home on April 13, 2011, when Bobo's brother, Clint, saw her being led away from the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m.

District Attorney Hansel McCadams said the case could be evaluated as a possible death penalty case.

"We believe we can prove she was taken from her home without her consent," said McCadams. "We believe she was killed in that kidnapping."

The investigation appeared to pick up steam last Friday after agents from the TBI and FBI searched several locations in Decatur and surrounding counties, including the home and property of Adams in Holladay, TN, about 15 miles from the Bobo residence.

Authorities would not say whether Bobo's body had been found.

Adams was arrested on Friday on unrelated assault charges in which authorities said he held a gun to the head of Amber Bray and threatened to "gut" her.

Adams is currently being held without bond in nearby Chester County. He will be arraigned on the current charges on Tuesday.

Gwyn said the investigation into Bobo's murder was continuing.

"We are confident that, as the public understands, we're moving forward, that they will come forward with the information they have," said Gwyn. "We hope this will lead us to additional information."

Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt said the indictment could be the first step of closure for the family and community.

"Thanks to the volunteers and agencies that have helped with this search," said Wyatt. "This is the first step we have to finding closure."

Holly Bobo's family did not issue a statement after the indictment. The family's pastor said the family was "appreciative of all the support they've received and all that the investigators have done."

On Saturday the community held a 12-hour prayer vigil at the Bobo's church.

"It's taken three years to get to this point. We don't want to mess it up now," said Gwyn. "Obviously the family is devastated. Hopefully this is close to closure for the family."

Early on, I suspected her brother because he was so vague..GLAD I was wrong.

They Had to have found something compelling to indict Adams for first-degree murder.

Report: Holly Bobo's mom taught daughter's alleged killer

Authorities have not shed much light on how they connected Zachary Adams to the kidnapping and murder of long-missing Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo, but a new report suggests that the families may have crossed paths years ago.

According to CBS affiliate WTVF, Adams' mother claims that Bobo's mother, Karen, was her son's elementary school teacher.

The 29-year-old Adams was charged Wednesday with especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree felony murder. He is being held at the Chester County Jail without bond.

Adams was initially arrested on Feb. 28 on an unrelated assault charge as his home was searched in connection with the Bobo case. In the unrelated case he is accused of holding a gun to a woman's head at his home on Feb. 6 and threatening to "gut" her with a knife, reports WTVF.

The Decatur County Board of Education declined to comment on whether Karen Bobo ever had Adams as a student, but did confirm that Bobo taught in Decatur County, where Adams grew up.

According to a woman who answered the phone at Scotts Hill Elementary School in Scotts Hill, Tenn., Karen Bobo has been employed there for 27 years.

According to WTVF, Cindy Adams said her son Zachary and Holly Bobo, who was 20 years old when she disappeared, did not run in the same circles.

Following her son's arrest Friday in the unrelated case, Cindy Adams told Fox affiliate WZTV her son is "one of the sweetest people" but "got mixed up with drugs at an early age." She also told the station her other son, Dylan, has been behind bars since July and that authorities had questioned him in connection with the Bobo investigation following Zachary's arrest.

"I am not saying that either one of them is innocent, I am just saying that as their mother, I am going to believe my children until proven otherwise," she told the station.

Bobo disappeared from her home in Parsons, Tenn., about 110 miles southwest of Nashville, in April 2011. Her brother told police he saw a man in camoflauge leading her into the woods surrounding the family home.

Investigators would not comment on what led to the charges against Adams, but at least two vehicles were reportedly towed away from his property last week and a cadaver dog was brought in to aid in the search. Officials would not say whether Bobo's body has been located.

Adams' property in Decatur County is about 15 miles from Bobo's home.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn said Wednesday in announcing the charges against Zachary Adams that the investigation is ongoing and officials have not ruled out other arrests and indictments. Gwyn asked anyone with information in the case to come forward.

District Attorney General Hansel McCadams said the case against Adams is being evaluated as a death penalty-eligible case.

Normal History of drugs, violence: Suspect in murder of Holly Bobo has extensive record

Post by Wrapitup on Sat Mar 08, 2014 5:33 pm

Mar. 6, 2014
Written by
Jordan Buie

The man charged with the murder and kidnapping of Holly Bobo has a history of violence toward women, including a conviction for shooting his mother in the knee in 2004, according to court records.

His criminal records show a past marked by problems with anger and substance abuse.

The frequency of the violence increased as Zachary Rye Adams’ drug charges progressed from possession of marijuana to possessing, manufacturing and selling methamphetamine and cocaine, according to court records.

Adams, 29, was given several opportunities for reform, such as community corrections and drug rehab. But records show he violated the restrictions of the community corrections orders and it was during the time he was free he assaulted and terrified those who knew him, even those who knew him and loved him most. Most of the arrests were in Decatur County, where Adams and Bobo both lived.

Authorities said Adams could face the death penalty if convicted of the murder of Bobo, who was 20 years old when she was kidnapped from outside her home in Darden on April 13, 2011. A grand jury indicted Adams on Wednesday after investigators presented evidence which they believe shows Adams killed Bobo in the perpetration of the kidnapping. Authorities would not say if her body has been found, and no motive has been released. A Bobo family spokesman has said Holly was not friends with Adams.

Adams’ criminal records spans his entire adult life. An arrest affidavit filed at the Decatur County Courthouse said Adams was 19 years old when he “recklessly shot his mother, Cindy King, in the knee with a Glock 9mm pistol … on Feb. 7, 2004.”

Joseph King II, who was then Adams’ stepfather, and Cindy Lee King, his mother, sought an order of protection. The petition for the protection order said they had two other children, John Dylan Adams, then 15, and Justin Clifford King, then 18, and the family was afraid of Zachary Adams.

“We are in fear of our lives,” they said in the court documents. “He shot his mother point blank with a 9mm Glock. He is a danger to us and the community.”

Adams pleaded guilty to assault. He was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail, which was suspended except for six months, and he was allowed to serve that time in rehab.

Adams was ordered by Judge C. Creed McGinley to attend drug and alcohol treatment at JACOA (the Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency) in September 2004.

Credit was given for 88 days already served in jail, and up to six months’ credit was given for impatient treatment and/or long-term transitional living at JACOA.

Shortly after completing rehab, on June 16, 2005, Adams threatened to shoot his grandfather Dick Adams and grandmother Becky Adams with a shotgun, according to an arrest affidavit. The affidavit charged Adams with aggravated assault.

In May 2007, Adams was indicted on charges of theft over $10,000.

The indictment said that on Jan. 23, 2007, Adams stole a John Deere ATV, firearms with ammunition, a chainsaw, torches, shop rags, a power boat and a small utility trailer from Hearts Desire Lodge-Campground in Sugar Tree.

The indictment said Adams also stole a Honda 250, deer stand and bug zapper from Jeff Davis on Duck Farm Road, which is near Adams’ home on Adams Lane in north Decatur County.

Adams pleaded guilty to the theft charges on Aug. 15, 2007. He was sentenced to two years and nine months, with time to be served in a community corrections program after 90 days in the county jail.

On Sept. 17, 2007, Adams tested positive for methamphetamine and marijuana and failed to abide by curfew, according to court records.

On Aug. 15, 2009, Adams was booked again on a violation of community corrections. Would like to know WHY it took almost 2 years to book him for violating his conditions/probation.

On Nov. 4, 2009, McGinley ordered Adams be sentenced to three years in state prison. The judgment order said Adams was convicted on July 13, 2009, for simple possession of Schedule VI drugs in Franklin County.

Adams didn’t serve the full three-year sentence. Court records don’t indicate when he was released, but he was arrested again on April 4, 2011, just nine days before Holly Bobo was kidnapped.

By this time, all signs pointed toward Adams being a violent individual with an escalating drug problem. Documents released by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation show that Adams was arrested on April 4, 2011, in Natchez Trace State Park on charges including fabricating/tampering with evidence, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, and possession of cocaine and other drugs. The TBI report doesn’t indicate whether Adams was convicted of those charges.

In the months and years after Bobo was killed, Adams was charged with assaulting two other women.

According to an affidavit, on July 12, 2011, about three months after the disappearance of Bobo, Adams brutally abused a woman who had come to his grandfather’s house at 235 Adams Lane in Holladay.

The statement from the victim, Rebecca Earp, says that he assaulted her “by gripping my neck and pushing me to the floor and head butted me in the nose as I was going to his grand dads next door.”

Earp told police Adams threatened to shoot her, so she turned back around.

“That’s when he pushed me against the truck and got me on the ground and started hitting me again,” she said in the affidavit. “When he stopped I sat on the front steps. When I didn’t look at him he would squeeze my head till I would look at him in the eyes.”

The affidavit says Adams punched Earp across the porch and stated that he would find her when he got out of jail and “deal with her.” The affidavit also says Adams told Earp that he would shoot her just like he did his mother.

In that case, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to 120 days. He again received credit for time spent in rehab.

Prior to his indictment in the Holly Bobo investigation, Adams already was in custody, charged with the aggravated assault of another woman, Amber Bray. An affidavit says Bray told police Adams pointed a gun at her head and threatened to “gut” her with a knife on Feb. 6. He was arrested last Friday. That charge is still pending, with a court date scheduled for Monday, followed by Adams’ arraignment in the Bobo case on Tuesday.

I agree Wrap, this guy went skating free on time served over and over.
He stalked around in the woods and opportunistically stole things. My guess is that's how he stumbled upon Holly too. He saw her and snatched her up just like the material things he had taken in the past.
It's a frightening glimpse into what may have happened to Holly...

Normal Bobo suspect tried smuggling meth into jail

Post by Wrapitup on Fri Mar 14, 2014 12:48 pm

On the same day Zachary Adams pleaded not guilty for the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo, the head of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation was at the state Capitol potentially shedding some light on the case.

Senators convened for a judiciary committee hearing to look at several bills aimed at curbing meth use in Tennessee, and TBI Director Mark Gwyn shared some pains of the drug from the front lines of law enforcement.

"I've been battling this meth issue for a long time," Gwyn said.

Gwyn then mentioned a name that those like state Sen. John Stevens, R-Huntingdon, didn't expect to hear: Holly Bobo.

"That was surprising to me that that was brought up, but it's relevant," Stevens said.

It's relevant in this hearing because Gwyn said Bobo's case has to do with meth.

"I worked one of the first methamphetamine-related murders back into the 90s, where a guy kidnapped two young men, tortured them for seven days, killed both of them, threw them off into Center Hill Lake," Gwyn said. "Fast-forward to 2014, and I thought in my career that would be the only time I would ever see anything like that."

For the past three years, the TBI has put hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars into finding Bobo, the nursing student who disappeared from her Parsons, TN, home back in 2011.

But, last week, came a big break in the case.

"We made an arrest. Lo and behold, the person has several meth-related charges. And the night we arrested him, he was trying to get meth into the jail," Gwyn said.

That person is Adams, who was first taken to the Decatur County Jail. The TBI says Adams smuggled meth into jail when he was transferred to Chester County.

Adams' arrest history shows that for years he's been in and out of jail for drugs and violence.

"At what point do we not stop this?" Gwyn asked.

It's a cycle Gwyn wants to see end.

"At what point do we stop the murders? I don't want to inconvenience anybody. There is no family in this state that deserves to go through what that family went through for the past three years," Gwyn said.

Adams' appearance in Decatur County court was very short Tuesday afternoon. He entered a not guilty plea in Bobo's kidnapping and murder and is due back in court next month for a status hearing.

He needs to wipe that sh*t eating grin off his face!!

Normal Holly Bobo's alleged killer has 14-page rap sheet

Post by Wrapitup on Fri Mar 14, 2014 12:52 pm

Posted: Mar 13, 2014 11:12 PM EDT
Updated: March 14, 2014 12:26 AM CDT
Reported By Lori Mitchell, Reporter

PARSONS, Tenn. -
The man charged in the 2011 kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo is no stranger to the justice system with a criminal past that dates back years and a rap sheet that is 14 pages long.

As more details emerge, many are wondering why Zachary Adams wasn't in jail to begin with.

In 2011, a woman named Rebecca Earp said in court documents that Adams assaulted her.

Then, in 2004, he shot his own mother, forcing his stepfather to take out an order of protection, saying the family feared for their lives.

A year later, in 2005, Adams' grandparents told police he threatened to shoot them with a shotgun.

Just last month, Adams was arrested for holding a gun to a woman's head. He also pulled a knife on her and threatened to "gut her," according to documents. The case is pending.

Criminal defense attorney Jim Todd previously prosecuted criminal cases in Davidson County. He isn't involved in the Bobo case but told News 2 Adams wasn't in jail because "that's not the way the criminal justice system works in this country." Really?????

"What he has been charged with in the past, none of those charges carried mandatory prison sentences. They were probatable offenses and it looks as if they were reduced and he was offered treatment and rehabilitation programs," Todd explained.

Adams, 29, appeared before a judge in Decatur County Tuesday and entered a plea of not guilty for aggravated kidnapping and first degree murder. He is next scheduled to appear in court for a status hearing April 9.

In the meantime, he remains in the Chester County jail without bond.

The investigation into Bobo's murder is ongoing. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has not indicated her body has been found.

That smile makes me feel ill!
Is he smiling because he thinks he won't be in jail long?

and since when is shooting your mother a probatable crime? WTH?

People have been blaming crimes on their drug use for years. This isn't new. If anything it's an old excuse.

Holly Bobo Murder Suspect Indicted
Added by Jessica Johnson on March 21, 2014.

Zachary Adams has been indicted for the 2011 murder of Holly Bobo, a nursing student from Tennessee. He was indicted on Wednesday for the especially aggravated kidnapping of Holly Bobo and first degree murder charges. According to sources closest to Adams, and a bad record to match, Adams was considered a danger to others for quite some time.

Long before he laid a hand on Holly Bobo,no one, not even Zachary’s own family, felt safe in his presence. In fact, his parents had sought legal protection from him via a court order in the past. Their statements in the documentation described a volatile and dangerous personality. Among the complaints against him, listed as evidence was their fear of imminent danger with him around. They stated, “He shot his mother point-blank with a 9mm Glock. He is a danger to us, and the community, and our relatives.”

Adams also shot his mother in the knee a decade earlier in 2004, and then threatened to murder his grandparents a year later in 2005. As far as Adams’ was concerned, no one was immune from his violent tendencies. He had quite a track record for violence and instability. The paper trail that precedes him reveals his propensity of violence toward women. When comparing this and the evidence surrounding his involvement in the Holly Bobo case, the evidence was overwhelmingly clear and was later indicted.

Bobo, who was a 20-year-old nursing school student from Darden, Tennessee, disappeared on April 13, 2011. It was said that the last time she was seen, a man in camouflage print clothing was spotting leading her into the woods. Prosecutors in the case have noted strong evidence that Holly Bobo was murdered and that there is no chance she survived the encounter.

When Zachary Adams’ mother, Cindy Lee King, and her husband, Joseph King II petitioned the court to protect them and their other children from Adams, he actually plead ‘guilty’ to the events they alleged against him. At that point in time, he was sentenced to serve a year in jail, but he only spent six month’s worth incarcerated, The rest of the time was spent in a drug and alcohol rehab some 50 miles away.

Not only did he leave a trail of violence and mayhem in his wake, but he also had a record for theft and a reputation for stealing large items such as an ATV, a boat, hunting materials, weapons, ammunition, tools, a chainsaw, a utility trailer, and a motorcycle. All these he took from a campground located in Sugar Tree, Tennessee. He also spent some time in the state Penitentiary.

The morning of April 13, 2011 was typical and for the most part, uneventful. The morning began with Holly, up before sunrise, prepping for an exam. Her parents, Dana and Karen Bobo, each left to go their respective jobs; Dana to his construction job and Karen to the school where she was employed as a teacher. Dana later recounted remembering that he had left her some money on the counter to use that day.

Holly’s brother, Clint, was still sleeping. The neighbor reported having heard Holly’s screams at around 7:40 am. A dog barking loudly awakened Clint. Karen Bobo called home when the neighbor had called her, reporting having heard screams coming from the Bobo property. Mrs. Bobo told Clint to get the gun and search the outside property. When he did, he found his sister’s car still parked in the driveway with a puddle of blood beside it.

Law enforcement officers assessed the situation and still felt as though Holly had been abducted. Holly Bobo was added to missing persons registries, where she has frequented the hearts and minds of Tennesseans for three years. Now, with the indictment of Zachary Adams for her abduction and subsequent murder, the case is taking a new but definitive direction.

They still haven't said if her remains were found.

IDK, but they are sure keeping this close to the vest. Never heard of a murder indictment w/out LE stating remains have been found.

Normal TBI Files New Charge Against Suspect In Holly Bobo Murder

Post by Wrapitup on Wed Apr 02, 2014 12:50 am

Posted: Apr 01, 2014 4:25 PM EDT
Updated: Apr 01, 2014 10:14 PM EDT

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. – An additional charge has been filed against the man accused in the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo.

Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 29-year-old Zachary Adams was charged Tuesday with coercion of a witness in the case.

Adams was already indicted by a Decatur County grand jury in March with felony first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

Bobo, a 20-year-old nursing student at the time of her disappearance, was taken from her family's home in Decatur County in 2011.

The additional charge was filed after new information developed in the case. Officials did not provide the details of what led to the charge.

"We will not tolerate any kind of coercion in criminal cases, but in a case like this, which has attracted so much interest and requires so many resources, rest assured we will fight hard to protect the integrity of our work as we seek justice for the family and friends of Holly Bobo," TBI Director Mark Gwyn said in a release.

Anyone with information about Bobo's disappearance has again been urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).

Normal Suspect in Holly Bobo disappearance allegedly sent threatening message to brother.

Post by Wrapitup on Thu Apr 03, 2014 7:34 am

NASHVILLE AP) - A man charged with kidnapping and murdering nursing student Holly Bobo is now being accused of threatening his own brother if the brother didn't keep quiet.

WTVF-TV says they have obtained a police report saying that murder suspect Zachary Adams told a jail inmate to relay a message to his brother saying "if he don't shut his mouth he will be in the hole beside her."

Bobo's body was never found after the 20-year-old disappeared in 2011 outside her home near Parsons, Tenn. Last month Adams was charged with kidnapping and murder. Police have yet to give a motive.

This week authorities announced that Adams had been charged with one count of coercion of a witness.

Adams' attorney did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Holly Bobo Suspect Misses Court, Faces Witness Coercion Charge

The man accused of murdering Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo still has not retained an attorney, it was revealed Wednesday, even as he faces an additional charge related to threatening to kill his brother.

Zachary Rye Adams, 29, wasn’t required to appear in Decatur County court, prompting Circuit Judge C. Creed McGinley to announce he would force the suspect to attend future status hearings. An attorney represented Adams in court Wednesday, but the convicted felon hasn’t officially retained her, reported The Jackson Sun.

“Until Mr. Adams is present, I am limited in what I can do,” McGinley said.

The state has refused to begin discovery in the case until Adams retains a lawyer, according to NBC affiliate WSMV.

Adams pleaded not guilty last month for the kidnapping and first-degree murder of Bobo, who was 20 when she vanished from her home in western Tennessee on April 13, 2011.

Authorities have not revealed why they believe Adams is a suspect, and have not said whether they have recovered Bobo’s body.

Adams lived just 15 miles from the Bobo family home.

The case, meanwhile, took another strange turn last week, when a court affidavit revealed Adams was also being charged with witness coercion.

Adams had learned a fellow inmate at Chester County Jail was being transferred to a new jail where Adams’ younger brother is being held, the affidavit reportedly said. Adams then asked the inmate to pass a message to his brother: “He’s the one who started this [expletive] and if he don’t shut his mouth he will be in the hole beside her.”

Adams’ younger brother, John Dylan Adams, is serving time for a stolen firearms charge.

Zachary Adams must attend the next status hearing at 1 p.m. on April 30.

Authorities are expected to announce "new and significant developments" in the case of a missing Tennessee nursing student abducted from her family's home three years ago, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation confirmed to FoxNews.com.

Holly Bobo, a nursing student at the University of Tennessee at Martin, was last seen at her home in Parsons on April 13, 2011, by her older brother, who reported seeing her being taken into the woods by an unidentified man dressed in camouflage.

A small amount of blood was found in the family's carport, where Holly was believed taken from while on her way to school, police sources told FoxNews.com at the time of her disappearance. Despite extensive searches that included bloodhounds and high-resolution underwater imaging, authorities found no trace of the 20-year-old woman, who is presumed dead.

In late February, Zachary Rye Adams, 29, was charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping in the death of Bobo. He was arrested last week after police searched his home in an unrelated assault case.

"We believe we can prove that she was taken forcefully from her home without her consent," District Attorney General Hansel McAdams said at the time. He said he will consider pursing the death penalty if Adams is convicted. He has also been charged with coercion of a witness in the Bobo case.

Investigators would not get into details about why Adams was charged. His home, however, is about 15 miles from where Bobo lived in Parsons, a small town about 100 miles northeast of Memphis in Decatur County.

Adams has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail without bond.

A source close to the case told FoxNews.com on Tuesday that additional charges will be filed in the case.

Bobo's brother, Clint, reported to police that he saw a man in camouflage clothes leading his sister into the woods behind the family's home. He said he initially thought she was being taken into the woods by her boyfriend, but grew concerned when he saw the man's arm holding onto his sister. He called his mother, who then contacted 911.
A news conference is planned for 4 p.m. local time

Authorities in Tennessee have charged a second person in the case of a Tennessee nursing student abducted from her family's home three years ago.

Jason Wayne Autry was charged with aggravated kidnapping and felony murder by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, authorities announced Tuesday.

At the same time, Zachary Adams, who previously was charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping in the case, was additionally charged with coercion.

The charges against both Adams and Autry--who has a lengthy criminal history and is currently incarcerated at the Riverbend Maximum Security Facility-- were handed down after evidence was presented to a grand jury.

Autry was charged after sworn witness statements said he was seen with Adams and Bobo after the time of her abduction. Investigatorssaid they anticipate making more arrests in the coming weeks.

“We believe there are others who have information and may have been involved,” TBI Director Mark Gwyn said at a late afternoon press conference. “This sends a clear message that we will be knocking on their door.”

Bobo, a nursing student at the University of Tennessee at Martin, was last seen at her home in Parsons on April 13, 2011, by her older brother, who reported seeing her being taken into the woods by an unidentified man dressed in camouflage.

A small amount of blood was found in the family's carport, where Holly was believed taken from while on her way to school, police sources told FoxNews.com at the time of her disappearance. Despite extensive searches that included bloodhounds and high-resolution underwater imaging, authorities found no trace of the 20-year-old woman, who is presumed dead.

"We believe we can prove that she was taken forcefully from her home without her consent," District Attorney General Hansel McAdams said at the time. He said he will consider pursing the death penalty if Adams is convicted.

Investigators would not get into details about why Adams was charged. His home, however, is about 15 miles from where Bobo lived in Parsons, a small town about 100 miles northeast of Memphis in Decatur County.

He has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail without bond.

Bobo's brother, Clint, reported to police that he saw a man in camouflage clothes leading his sister into the woods behind the family's home.

Normal Third Suspect Shayne Austin, May Be Indicted Alongside Jason Wayne Autry and Zachary Adams

Post by NiteSpinR on Mon May 05, 2014 1:46 am

MURFREESBORO — A third person being investigated in connection to the Holly Bobo case has a criminal record in Murfreesboro, including a DUI and a charge of walking down a major street with a shotgun, according to police documents.

Shayne Austin, 29, identified as suspect by a prosecutor in an email, may be indicted alongside Jason Wayne Autry and Zachary Adams, who have both been charged with first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in the Bobo case.

Bobo, a nursing student, disappeared after she was seen being led away from her West Tennessee home by a man in Darden in April 2011.

Austin previously had been granted immunity in exchange for his cooperation in the investigation, but investigators told The Jackson Sun Austin was not completely truthful and forthcoming.

He was arrested twice in three months in Rutherford County, according to records from the Murfreesboro Police Department.

On Nov. 20, 2009, Austin was pulled over on Middle Tennessee Boulevard in front of the Murphy Center at Middle Tennessee State University, according to an arrest report. On video footage taken from a dashboard camera mounted in the patrol car, Austin can be seen stumbling and nearly toppling multiple times during a field sobriety test.

Austin was charged with the third DUI on his record and with violating state implied-consent laws, as he refused to submit to a blood test when he was booked, according to the arrest report.

On Jan. 4, 2010, a police officer saw Austin walking across a gas station parking lot wielding a shotgun, according to another arrest report.

The gas station, which was a Mapco at the time, was on Middle Tennessee Boulevard just down the road from where he was previously arrested. When the officer approached Austin, according to the report, Austin placed the Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun on the ground.

Austin was arrested for possessing a weapon with intent to go armed, according to the arrest report.

State law says that "it is an offense for any person to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, with the intent to go armed, any (prohibited) weapon" in public. Exceptions are made for people who carry a handgun with the appropriate permit.

Austin's criminal record in Decatur County includes 10 charges against him, all misdemeanors, according to The Jackson Sun.

Man Suing State To Keep Immunity Deal In Bobo Case
by Mark Bellinger
Posted: May 16, 2014 10:42 PM EDT
Updated: May 16, 2014 11:50 PM EDT

Shane Austin

Zach Adams


Jason Autry


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Another man named in connection with the Holly Bobo case has sued the State of Tennessee in order to protect his immunity.

So far, Zach Adams and Jason Autry have been charged with kidnapping and killing Bobo.

Court records have indicated that Shayne Austin may also be indicted in connection with the case. Prosecutors granted Austin immunity if he could help with the TBI investigation, which apparently included finding Bobos' body.

Newschannel 5 learned that a tip from Austin helped lead to a massive search of Adams' property back in February.

No body was found
, and Newschannel 5 Legal Analyst Nick Leonardo said if prosecutors have to rely on circumstantial evidence they may have a big problem with Austin.

"I believe that the state of Tennessee is going to try to use him with the jury to say believe Mister Austin the statements he's making about these co-defendants' involvement -- it's true, but in this particular case the state is going to be a little disingenuous because they themselves don't believe the voracity of Mister Austin's statements,” Leonardo said.

Through e-mails prosecutor told Austin's attorney he'd broken the immunity agreement by not being truthful, and they'll make a courtesy call when they indict Austin.

Now, Austin has sued the state in chancery court to keep them from breaking the agreement. Apparently, he felt he had been truthful.

Adams and Autry were scheduled to appear in court again in two weeks.

Zach Adams' grandfather told Newschannel 5 the TBI used backhoes to dig up and searched two wells on the Adams property.

Several sources close to the investigation told Newschannel 5 they did recover some physical evidence -- possibly bone fragments.

We do not know if those fragments came from Holly Bobo.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Of course the bone fragments are Holly's..no Way would any LE agency go to these lengths if they weren't..this case is and has been a deep mystery from the get-go..Many twist and turns. I personally think this is just the beginning.

Must-see video...

Normal Judge won't rule on immunity agreement in Holly Bobo case

Post by Wrapitup on Sat May 31, 2014 1:54 pm

Posted: May 27, 2014 11:42 AM EDT
Updated: May 27, 2014 03:38 PM

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. - The fight to keep an immunity agreement in connection with the April 2011 kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo will move from Decatur County Chancery Court to the Decatur County Circuit Court.

Decatur County Chancellor Carma McGee ruled that her court did not have the jurisdiction to decide a lawsuit filed by Shayne Austin against the State of Tennessee.

Austin, 29, was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for helping investigators locate the body of Bobo, in March.

Austin, his attorney Luke Evans, TBI assistant special agent in charge Russ Winkler and 24th Judicial District Assistant District Attorney General Beth Boswell signed the agreement March 6 of this year.

According to the agreement the state “agrees to grant him immunity for all charges arising out of the disposal, destruction, burial and/or concealment of Holly Bobo’s Deceased body, conditioned upon him assisting us in recovering the body of Holly Lynn Bobo.”

But, the TBI and prosecutors later said he had not been truthful, cooperative or forthcoming.

They informed his attorney, Luke Evans, the immunity agreement they all signed was null and void.

The assistant district attorney then told Evans via email that she would give him a courtesy call when she indicts Austin.

Evans then filed a lawsuit to prevent an indictment and to force the state to stand behind the agreement.

“They made their decision and made their bed, they should be forced to lay in it,” Evans said in court. “They bargained for benefit and Mr. Shane Kyle Austin bargained for benefit there was consideration given a written contract was formed.”

The state contended that the chancery court could not stop the prosecutorial process.

“The relief the plaintiff seeks is to stop the prosecution of a criminal case and this court under the case law that's been provided does not have the jurisdiction to do that,” Assistant Attorney General Scott Sutherland said.

Sutherland also said Evans wants to depose TBI agents for his lawsuit and that would risk the ongoing Bobo investigation.

Evans said allowing the immunity agreement to be nullified would trample on the constitutional rights of his client and cause a chilling effect for others who might help investigations.

“They say one thing then they do another,” he said in court. “It is more tyrannical of the state to coming here today and ask this court to ignore this [agreement].”

Chancellor McGee ordered the case transferred to circuit court because it is based on criminal procedures.

A date for the case to be heard in the circuit court has not been determined.

Outside court when asked about the judgment he said “no comment.” He also did not answer questions about Bobo’s whereabouts.

The crux of his immunity agreement was leading investigators to Bobo’s remains.

Evans said after the hearing that the lawsuit is not over and he will fight in circuit court. He also professed Austin’s innocence in connection with Bobo’s kidnapping and murder.

“I can tell you my client had no involvement in the disappearance or anything that happened with Holly Bobo,” he said. “You should be able to rely on the word given to you by the state of Tennessee and in this instance they're trying to go back on their word.”

The Bobo family was in court for the hearing. They did not want to speak on camera, though Karen Bobo said off-camera, “I don’t want anyone to forget about Holy and her rights,” she said. “Justice for Holly and ignore this circus side show that these attorneys are having.”

A future court date in circuit court to take up the immunity agreement lawsuit has not been set.

Austin has not been charged in connection with Bobo’s disappearance and murder. Her body has not been found.

Zachary Adams and Jason Autry have both been charged with first degree murder and aggravated kidnapping in connection with Bobo’s disappearance.

Autry is scheduled to be in court Wednesday at 1 p.m. to take up motions, including a request from his defense team to have face to face meetings.

Right now one of his attorney’s John Huberson told News 2 they can only video chat or talk to him through his cell door.

Holly Bobo's mother speaks out for 1st time since arrests

Posted: May 28, 2014 9:37 AM EDT
Updated: May 28, 2014 06:21 PM
Reported By Joseph Pleasant, Reporter - bio | email

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. - Holly Bobo’s mother spoke out for the first time following a motions hearing for one of the two men charged with kidnapping and murdering the nursing student in April 2011.

“I'm asking people, please not forget what this is all about and that this is justice for my daughter,” Karen Bobo said. “I don’t want people to be distracted by the sideshow the attorneys are putting on in court.”

The Bobo family has been present for every court hearing involving the case against Zachary Adams and Jason Autry.

Autry appeared in a Decatur County courtroom Wednesday.

During the short hearing, a motion requesting a gag order against Autry and his defense team was denied, though the judge told Autry that he has a right to remain silent and he encouraged him to do so.

Judge Creed McGinley said he has not issued a gag order before and the state would have to climb a steep mountain to convince him it was needed in this case.

A request by Autry’s attorneys asking if they could have face-to-face meetings with their client, who is in segregation at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville, was also denied despite the lawyers stating they could only speak to the 39-year-old through his cell door, making it difficult to communicate in a confidential manner.

“We meet with him through a thick glass which I have a difficulty hearing and I am not hard of hearing,” Defense Attorney Fletcher Long said.

Judge McGinley told the prosecution to work with TDOC to see if there are ways of improving that communication without allowing Autry face-to-face meetings.

Autry is charged alongside Zachary Adams with especially aggravated kidnapping and first degree felony murder in for Bobo’s disappearance.

A third person linked to Bobo’s disappearance, Shayne Austin, appeared in court Tuesday. He is not charged in the case and was initially granted immunity because he agreed to tell investigators where Bobo’s body was located.

Prosecutors said he did not keep up his end of the bargain and could be charged in the future.

He sued the state of Tennessee to prevent prosecutors from voiding the immunity agreement, but a Chancery Court Chancellor ruled she did not have jurisdiction and ordered the case transferred to circuit court Tuesday.

Karen Bobo said coming to all the hearings is tough for her and her family, but they would keep doing it for Holly.

“Our presence is for Holly, our voice is for Holly, and my daughter deserves that,” Bobo said. “We will be here all the way.”

Judge McGinley drew up a scheduling order that will require all discovery, motions and response to be completed by December.

Discovery for the case is estimated to be around 90,000 pages, according to Autry’s attorneys.

Outside of court as he was being loaded into a vehicle to return to Riverbend, Autry said he was “praying for the Bobo family.”

Autry’s co-defendant, Zachary Adams, is scheduled to be in court June 4, at 1 p.m. for a status hearing.

Holly Bobo disappeared from her west Tennessee home near Parsons on the morning of April 13, 2011.

Her body has not been found and the investigation is ongoing.

2 more men arrested in connection with Holly Bobo case

Nichole Manna, The Jackson (Tenn.) Sun 1:50 p.m. EDT June 11, 2014

JACKSON, Tenn. — Two more men have been arrested and charged as accessories in connection with the murder and kidnapping of a 20-year-old nursing student in West Tennessee, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.

Brothers Mark Pearcy and Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy, who were arrested May 29, have been charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact, said bureau spokesman Josh DeVine.

DeVine wouldn't comment further on the evidence or circumstances around the charges.

"Out of respect for the judicial process, we cannot speak to the particular possible pieces of evidence in this case," he said in an e-mail to The Jackson (Tenn.) Sun. "We continue our work to follow the leads wherever they might lead. We won't stop until we find a sense of justice and closure for the family and friends of Holly Bobo."

According to Jeffrey Pearcy's attorney, Olin Baker, the charges and claims against Jeffrey Pearcy are untrue.

According to the affidavit for Jeffrey Pearcy, investigators believe he has "shown a visual recording on an electronic device to an individual. According to the witness, this visual recording shows information that will prove to be beneficial in the prosecution of a current on-going investigation being conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation."

The affidavit doesn't mention whether the charges are in relation to the Bobo case.

Investigators believe that Jeffrey Pearcy has possession or has knowledge of where the video is, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit states that Jeffrey Pearcy is an "accessory after the fact due to his conduct concerning the concealment of evidence into the investigation."

Tampering with evidence is a class C felony and accessory after the fact is a class E felony.

Jeffrey Pearcy, 42, is currently being held in Henderson County without bond.

Mark Pearcy was transferred from Decatur County to Carroll County last week and also is being held without bond.

According to online records, Mark Pearcy, who is not represented by Baker, registered as a sex offender in 2000 for statutory rape.

Bobo was abducted the morning of April 13, 2011, from outside her home in Darden, Tenn. Her brother told investigators he saw a man wearing camouflage walking her into the woods.

Zachary Adams was indicted in March on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder.

A second man, Jason Wayne Autry, was indicted in April on first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping charges.

One brother was free on bond and the other remained in jail Wednesday after being charged in connection with the disappearance of Tennessee nursing student Holly Lynn Bobo.

Jeffrey Kurt Pearcy, 42, was released on $25,000 bond after he pleaded not guilty Wednesday to tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in the presumed death of Bobo, the cousin of country music star Whitney Duncan.

Pearcy's brother Mark Lynn Pearcy, 38, who is listed in Tennessee criminal records as a registered sex offender, remained in the Carroll County jail on the same charges.

Both brothers were arrested in late May but weren't arraigned until this week, when their possible connection to the high-profile case became public.

Two other men have been charged with murder and kidnapping in the actual disappearance of Bobo, a nursing student at the University of Tennessee-Martin who would now be 23. She was last seen by her brother outside the family's home in Darden in April 2011, and her body has never been found.

Investigators said in an affidavit that Jeffrey Pearcy showed a video to someone "that will prove to be beneficial in the prosecution of a current ongoing investigation being conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation."

Jeffrey Pearcy's attorney told NBC station WMC of Memphis that Pearcy has never seen a video of Bobo.

The TBI wouldn't reveal what's in the alleged video. In a short statement it emailed to several news organizations, it said, "We won't stop until we find a sense of justice and closure for the family and friends of Holly Bobo."
