A second man has just been charged with murder in the disappearance of 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo. Holly was last seen April 13, 2011, after her brother told police he saw a man in camouflage leading her away from their home in Darden, Tennessee.
Last month, authorities announced that they were charging 29-year-old Zachary Adams with kidnapping and murder, even though Holly has not yet been found. You can read about that development HERE.
Authorities said yesterday that 39-year-old Jason Wayne Autry, a friend of Adams, has also now been charged with kidnapping and murder. Autry is already in prison for an unrelated assault conviction.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn held a news conference yesterday afternoon and told reporters that several witnesses led to Autry’s charges and that more suspects can expect police to be on their doorsteps soon. Gwyn said investigators believe there are more people with information and possible involvement and that more announcements should be expected in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Adams appeared in court yesterday for an additional count of coercion of a witness. While in court, it was revealed that Adams’ brother told investigators that he saw Holly alive in Adams’ home after she disappeared. He is expected to testify against Adams at trial.
Holly’s body still has not been found.
