Zach Adams

Holly Bobo disappeared on April 13, 2011 from her family home in Darden, Tennessee. She was last seen alive by her brother shortly before 8 a.m. walking into the woods outside her home with a man wearing camouflage. In September 2014, her remains were found in northern Decatur County, Tennessee and her death was ruled a homicide. Since then Zachary and John Dylan Adams and a friend of Zach's, Jason Autry were charged with her murder. In 2018 John Dylan Adams pleaded guilty to charges of facilitation of first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping. Autry chose to make a plea bargain with prosecutors wherein he would testify against Zach Adams in exchange for a significantly reduced sentence. In 2017, Jason Autry testified at the trial of Zach Adams and a jury found Zach Adams guilty on all charges, including first-degree murder, especially-aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape. In 2020 Jason Autry pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit murder and facilitation of especially aggravated kidnapping. Jason Autry has now recanted his testimony he gave against Zach Adams, claiming he had repeated his day and 'added Holly to it' in an attempt to get out of prison. In January 2024 Zach Adams filed a petition that his conviction be overturned on the basis of this new evidence.
