As several Charley Project viewers were so kind to share with me, charges have been filed in the disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo, who was abducted from her Darden, Tennessee home nearly three years ago. She was 20 years old. The abduction was witnessed by Holly’s brother, Clint, but he initially didn’t realize what he was seeing: he thought Holly was simply walking into the woods with her boyfriend. It turned out her boyfriend was miles away at the time.
This was a pretty famous case nationally, for a number of reasons: Holly’s cousin is a country music star, her abduction was witnessed, her family was very active and vocal in the search for her, and she is/was a beautiful young woman, blonde and all-American looking. There are lots of photos of her and the camera clearly loves her.
Holly’s accused killer is a neighbor, Zachary Rye Adams, who may face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder and kidnapping. He’s already in jail for an unrelated charge of aggravated assault. As far as I know, his name had not surfaced in the Bobo investigation until quite recently.
Investigators haven’t said whether they’ve recovered Holly’s remains, though I’m guessing not, otherwise why wouldn’t they say so?
Next time I update I will, of course, include the new developments. Maybe it will be today, maybe not. I’ve got a cold and am feeling pretty run-down today.
