Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- A man who was once Zachary Adams' stepfather speaks with FOX 17 News and sheds light on what it was like to live with the man indicted for the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo.

"The Bobo family, I am just sick and tore up about it, I've got them in my prayers all the time, "said Adams' former stepfather, who wants to keep his identity concealed. A former firefighter, the man  married  Cindy Adams, Zach Adams' mother in 2000.

"It was some of the happiest days of my life when we first got married but he just destroyed our whole lives,"said Adam's former stepfather.

According to the TBI, Zach started getting busted for drugs like meth in 2002. He also started assaulting people.

"Mostly it was girls and women, he didn't mess with men much,"said the ex-step dad.

Adams' former stepfather tells FOX 17 about how he was at the home when he says a teenage Zach shot his mother. The stepfather says Zach and his former wife were arguing and as he went to the back bedroom, he heard a gunshot. He says he did not find out until later that Zach had shot his mother and that she said she sat on the gun because she didn't want her son to go to jail.

"She hollered out 'I've been shot!' So when I get back in the living room, blood is going everywhere. I really didn't have time to think, other than to stop the bleeding."

The former firefighter  says he was forced to take out a protection of order against the teen who allegedly terrorized the whole family. He says Adams started coming back within the year, and the step dad started sleeping with a meat cleaver underneath his side of the bed.
