According to an announcement made by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation on Monday evening, the partial remains of a woman’s body including a human skull found were indeed missing nursing student Holly Bobo. The remains were found by two Benton County men on Sunday morning in the woods near a logging road adjacent to County Corner Road in northern Decatur County.
Ms Bobo Disappeared from her home in April 2011 when she was just 20 years of age. A report filed by her brother to the police indicated that he saw a man dressed in camouflage leading her away into the woods.
Two suspects Zachary Adams and Jason Autry, who had been charged with Ms. Bobo’s kidnapping and murder, had pleaded not guilty.
Ms. Bobos remains were found near property owned by the family of Zachary Adams.
The Bobo family, present at the TBI news conference thanked the locals for their support during the saga. They also thanked the authorities for being diligent in their pursuit of justice through a report read by the family’s attorney Steve Farese.
The statement went ahead to explain that the family will never understand the motives of those who were responsible for Holly’s kidnapping and murder, but they will continue to pray that someone will have the courage to shed more light on what happened and hope that those responsible will face trial.
