Murder and kidnapping charges were filed Wednesday in the disappearance of Parsons, Tenn., nursing student Holly Bobo, marking the first major break in the case since she vanished nearly three years ago.

A Decatur County grand jury returned an indictment against Zachary Adams, 27, whose property was searched by law enforcement Friday in connection with Bobo’s disappearance.

The announcement was made during a news conference Wednesday held jointly by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office, and the 24th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office.

When TBI Director Mark Gwyn read the charges against Adams — especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder — there were audible gasps and a few screams from the audience.

UPDATE I: West Tennessee DA will consider whether to pursue death penalty in Holly Bobo case.

It was simply heart-breaking watching today’s press conference when TBI Director Mark Gwyn referenced that the Decatur County grand jury returned an indictment against Zachary Adams of first degree murder. You could hear several audible gasps of grief and crying. Just simply crushing. The DA’s office will review the case to consider whether it is a death penalty case. One has to wonder whether Adams will accept a deal for life in prison if he provides where Holly Bobo’s body is located.

A West Tennessee prosecutor said his office will consider whether to pursue the death penalty against a 29-year-old man indicted on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree felony murder in the case of Holly Bobo.

A grand jury indicted Zachary Rye Adams on Wednesday. He remains in jail on a $1 million bond on an unrelated charge.

Our thought and prayers are with the family and friends of Holly Bobo. God Bless.

UPDATE II: Country music star Whitney Duncan, cousin of kidnapped and murdered Holly Bobo, tweeted after the devastating news from the TBI press conference.

Duncan tweeted shortly after the charges were announced. “Words can’t describe the heartbreak,” she wrote. “Thank u for the prayers.”
