Zach Adams' Mother Reveals Connection Among Holly Bobo Suspects -- Mikayla Lewis

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

Holly Bobo,  a 20-year-old, nursing student was  last seen on  April 13th, 2011.

Her brother, Clint Bobo  told investigators he last saw his sister alive with a man in camouflage, in the woods near their Decatur County home.

Holly's former nursing teacher said earlier this week at  the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's press conference, "It's been suspected since day one, that there was probably more than one person involved amongst our community."

The TBI conducted several searches of Zachary Adams property, which  led to enough evidence to charge Adams  in March with especially aggravated kidnapping, and first degree murder,

Now , Jason Autry faces the same charges.  

 Holly's former nursing teacher says, "It's good to finally have some names put to that beyond the rumors. "

With Autry's name still just a rumor in March, Cindy Adams, Zachary's mother told Fox 17 news that  Autry sometimes  stayed at her son's house.

Cindy Adams, in March 2014 said, "He was a friend and he was in and out of Zachary's house a lot. From what I asked people, he supposedly was living there when Holly disappeared."

Right now, Autry is serving time at Riverbend maximum security prison on unrelated charges.

On February 5th this year, the Parson's local newspaper  The News Leader Our Town,   put Autry's face  front and center .

The article says that the 39-year-old ,"found God..."

Autry told the paper:  "My life became addiction and crime. It's not cool. It's the devil. If  [God] He can save me, he can save anyone."

Tammy Ramey , a Bobo family friend said, "if he really found the Lord maybe he will do what's right."

A third person may soon be indicted in the case.

Shayne Austin is suing the state for trying to take back an immunity agreement which reportedly involved him helping investigators  find Bobo's body.

Cindy Adams, in March 2014 said, "Shayne Austin is a childhood friend of Zachary. He's been friends with both Zachary and Dylan since they were kids, went to church together, hung out together."

The TBI is not  saying how  Austin is connected with  the case, but confirms Autry and Adams were the last to be seen with Holly Bobo alive , according to sworn witness statements.

Ramey said, "Why? Holly was a good girl; going to school she had her whole life ahead of her."

The TBI is still investigating other suspects. Anyone with any information regarding Holly Bobo's murder is asked to contact 1-800-TBI-FIND.
