On April 13, 2011, Holly Bobo disappeared from her home on Swan Johnson Road between 7:40 AM and 8:00 AM.

There was a $25,000 reward offered from the community, an $85,000 reward offered from a government and private citizen reward fund, a $100,000 reward offered from a Memphis private citizen for a self-surrender and lastly a $250,000 reward offered for Holly’s safe return.
After receiving credible information which led to obtain search warrants for various locations last week, enough evidence and information was collected to prompt the District Attorney to solicit a special grand jury. On March 5th 2014, at 2:00 PM, a special Decatur County Grand Jury convened to hear case presentation from a TBI Special Agent. After the session, the grand jury returned indictments on Zachary Rye Adams, age 29 of Parsons, TN. He was charged with Felony First Degree Murder and Especially Aggravated Kidnapping. He is currently being held in the Chester County Jail with no bond for these charges. Adams was officially served this afternoon at the jail. The District Attorney General, Hansel McAdams will prosecute this case.
