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.
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.”

Grand Jury Indicts Four School Employees (Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey, Elementary School Principal Lynnett Gorman, Wrestling Coach Seth Fluharty & Assistant Football Coach Matt Belardine) in 2012 Rape of a 16 Year Old Girl in Steubenville, OH
Stunning indictment of four Steubenville, Ohio school employees in 2012 rape case …
The grand jury that was investigating the 2012 rape of a 16 year old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four school employees, including the Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey, Elementary School principal Lynnett Gorman, wrestling coach Seth Fluharty and volunteer assistant football coach Matt Belardine. In March 2013, two Steubenville High School football players, Ma’lik Richmond and Trenton Mays, were convicted of the rape of a 16 year old girl.
At a press conference today, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said it was time to make adults responsible as well. He stated, “This began as the rape of a 16 year old girl, a horrible crime of violence. But it also represents blurred, stretched, and distorted boundaries of right and wrong.” DeWine went on to say, “While this started out being about the kids, it is also just as much about the parents, about the grown-ups, about the adults. How do you hold kids accountable if you don’t hold the adults accountable?” Great question and one that needs to be answered!
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announces the indictments at presser … “While this started out being about the kids, It is also just as much about the parents.”
A grand jury investigating the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four school employees, including the school superintendent, who faces felony charges, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Monday.
Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey faces three felony counts: one charge of tampering with evidence and two counts of obstructing justice. He also is charged with making a false statement and obstructing official business, both misdemeanors, DeWine said.
Also indicted was elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman and wrestling coach Seth Fluharty, both of whom are charged with misdemeanor failure to report child abuse. Volunteer assistant Steubenville football coach Matt Belardine was charged with four misdemeanors: allowing underage drinking, obstructing official business, making a false statement and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
RH Reality Check has an incitement piece regarding the rape and the atmosphere surrounding the heinous crime asks the all important question, ‘Could New Steubenville Indictments Send a Message to Communities About Dealing With Rape?’

UNSPEAKABLE ACTS TO SAY THE LEAST …
A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted 14 year old Philip Chism on charges of murder, aggravated rape and armed robbery in the heinous and horrific death of his algebra teacher, Colleen Ritzer. According to prosecutors, under the aggravated rape and armed robbery indictments, Chism was charged as a youthful offender, but they will move to join those charges with the murder case in Superior Court.

On October 22, 2013, Phillip Chism followed Ritzer in to the the girl’s bathroom of the high school with a box cutter he brought to school and killed her. Chism punched and raped Ritzer before ultimately killing her, then robbed her of her credit cared and iPhone, then discareded her body outside the school. Sick, just sick!
Citing Massachusetts law, prosecutors said they would ask that Chism be tried in an adult court.
“The indictments … detail horrific and unspeakable acts,” said District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.
The armed robbery indictment alleges that Chism, armed with a box cutter, robbed Ritzer of credit cards, an iPhone and her underwear. The aggravated rape indictment alleges that he sexually assaulted her with an object.
Under the aggravated rape and armed robbery indictments, Chism was charged as a youthful offender, but prosecutors said they will move to join those charges with the murder case in Superior Court.
Fire up “sparky” for this one, any one capable of this should not be allowed to walk among us, or anyone.
17 Years Later after the Death of 6 Year Old JonBenet Ramsey, Murder Indictment to be Unsealed Over Family’s Objection
The unsolved death of 6 year old JonBenet Ramseyback in the news …
17 years later after the death of 6 year old JonBenet Ramsey, the murder indictment is to be unsealed. The murder indictment of her parents, John and Patricia Ramsey Ramsey, was kept secret all these years and never prosecuted. The Ramsey family has objected to the release of the indictment; however, Senior District Judge J. Robert Lowenbach said he was “sympathetic” to the Ramsey family’s position but was only allowed under law to release the indictment. JonBenet Ramsey was found dead beaten and strangled in the basement of her parent’s Colorado home on Dec. 26, 1996. Patricia Paugh Ramsey died of ovarian cancer in 2006.
Seventeen years after the nation was riveted by the unsolved murder of 6-year-old beauty-pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey, an indictment of her parents — which was kept secret and never prosecuted — will be released Friday.
It’s unclear what light the 18 pages of grand jury documents will shed on the mystery that spawned books, TV movies and countless theories about who killed the little girl found dead in the basement of her Colorado home on Dec. 26, 1996.
Scott Robinson, a prominent Denver defense lawyer who has followed the case for years, said the court papers probably include a statement of supporting facts that would “give us a sense of of what the grand jury was thinking when they saw the evidence available at that time.”
It will be interesting to see what is in these court documents, more to come …
Ex-New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez Indicted on First Degree Murder and Weapons Charges in Death of 27 Year Old Odin Lloyd (VIDEO)
Former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez was indicted today for the first degree murder of Odin Lloyd and weapons charges in a North Attleboro court house. Hernandez is expected to be arraigned on the charges in the coming weeks. Following today’s hearing, Hernandez defense attorney Michael Fee said that “there has been an incredible rush to judgment in this case” and said that he questioned whether prosecutors had enough evidence to prove that Hernandez shot and killed Odin Lloyd.
Afterward, Michael Fee, one of his attorneys, asserted that “there has been an incredible rush to judgment in this case” and said that he questioned whether prosecutors had enough evidence to prove that Hernandez shot and killed Lloyd, 27.
“On the evidence that we’re aware of today, we don’t believe it’s possible for the commonwealth to meet its burden,” Fee said outside the squad red brick courthouse.
Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was indicted Thursday on first-degree murder and weapons charges in the death of a friend whose bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park about a mile from the ex-player’s home.
The six-count grand jury indictment charges Hernandez with killing 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend.
Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June, and he is being held without bail.
He had a brief court appearance in Attleboro on Thursday afternoon. Afterward, his attorney Michael Fee said the defense was pleased to be on a path to a jury trial and was looking forward to testing the prosecution’s evidence.
If this indictment is not bad enough, Hernandez is also the subject of two other ongoing investigations, one into a double murder in Boston in 2012 and one in Florida in which a man has alleged that he was shot by the former player in February.
Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Indicted with Using Weapons of Mass Destruction and Killing Four People
A federal grand jury has indicted Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev. The 30 count indictment charged Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with using weapons of mass destruction and killing four people. The indictment claims that that Tsarnaev had been inspired by Al Qaeda publications and that he left a confession in the boat where he was captured in a Watertown, MA back yard. The indictment also indicates that Dzhokhar confessed to the killings. Remember, the police found that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wrote “F*** America” & “Praise Allah” on the side panel of the boat when he was caught. Seventeen of the charges carry the possibility of the death penalty, while the others carry a maximum of life in prison.
A federal grand jury today handed up a sweeping indictment of Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, charging him with using weapons of mass destruction and killing four people.
The 30-count indictment alleges that Tsarnaev had been inspired by Al Qaeda publications and left a confession in the boat where he was captured in a Watertown back yard.
In it, he said, “I don’t like killing innocent people” and noted that “it is forbidden” in Islam to do so, but he justified his actions as a response to US military action in Muslim countries, according to the indictment.
“The U.S. Government is killing our innocent civilians. …. I can’t stand to see such evil go unpunished. … We Muslims are one body, you hurt one, you hurt us all,” Tsarnaev allegedly wrote. “Stop killing our innocent people and we will stop.”
The indictment alleges that sometime before the bombings, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, downloaded different pieces of extremist Islamic propaganda from the Internet, including one that directed Muslims not to give their allegiances to governments that invade Muslim lands and another by Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki is the American citizen who became a senior operative in Al Qaeda’s branch in Yemen and was killed in a 2011 drone strike.
From The Daily Caller: The Islamic organization that includes Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mosque has ties to the al-Qaeda operative that reportedly inspired Tsarnaev to carry out the Boston Marathon terrorist attack.
Ariel Castro Accused of Kidnapping Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus & Michelle Knight Indicted on 329 Charges Including Murder, Kidnapping and Rape
THE FACE OF EVIL …
Ariel Castro, the man accused of kidnapping and holding Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight for a decade has been indicted on 329 charges, including murder, kidnapping and rape. The indictment returned by a Cuyahoga County grand jury was a who’s who of sick and twisted depravity of crimes perpetrated upon the three woman he kidnapped, sexually abuses and held captive for a decade in his Ohio home. The list included 2 counts of aggravated murder, 139 counts of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping, 7 counts of gross sexual imposition, 3 counts of felonious assault and 1 count of possession of criminal tools.
A Cuyahoga County grand jury returned the indictment Friday against Ariel Castro, a former school bus driver fired last fall.
The grand jury charged Castro with two counts of aggravated murder related to one act, saying he purposely caused the unlawful termination of one of the women’s pregnancies. Castro also was indicted on 139 counts of rape, 177 counts of kidnapping, seven counts of gross sexual imposition, three counts of felonious assault and one count of possession of criminal tools.
Cuyahoga County prosecutor Tim McGinty said the indictment covers only the period from August 2002, when the first of the women disappeared, to February 2007.
The indictment refers to the women as Jane Doe 1, Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3 and gives a glimpse into the circumstances of their captivity.
The aggravated murder counts stem from the unlawful termination of Jane Doe 1′s pregnancy in late 2006 or early 2007, the indictment says.
Ariel Castro was arrested May 6, 2013 after Amanda Berry was able to scape from Casto’s ‘House of Horrors’ by breaking through a door at the home, yelled to neighbors for help. She was able to borrow a cell phone from and tell the 911 operator, “Help me. I’m Amanda Berry. I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for 10 years, and I’m, I’m here, I’m free now.”
Ex-Schools Chief Beverly L. Hall in Atlanta, GA Indicted in Testing Scandal … Charged with Racketeering, Theft, Influencing Witnesses, Conspiracy & Making False Statements.
OBAMA WHITE HOUSE PRAISED INDICTED FORMER ATLANTA SCHOOL ADMINISTARTOR WHO CHEATED HER WAY TO FAME … CRIMINAL, SIMPLY CRIMINAL.
Dr. Beverly L. Hall, A former district school superintendent whose test scores brought her fame in 2009 as the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year. Barack Obama’s Secretary of Education Arne Duncan even hosted her at the White House. However, it appears to have been all a fabricated lie. Water seeks it’s own level, doesn’t it? Dr. Beverly L. Hall was indictedin a test cheating scandal and charged with racketeering, theft, influencing witnesses, conspiracy and making false statements. Prosecutors have recommended a $7.5 million bond for Dr. Hall and she could face up to 45 years in prison. Sadly, this is how these public school educators thought they were helping students, by cheating. As stated at NRO, the Atlanta schools chief spearheaded a vast criminal conspiracy among administrators and teachers to cheat on standardized tests to artificially boost the scores of their pupils. How could anyone thin k this was beneficial? Well. it would not be for the students, but it would be for those administrators and teachers that were rewarded on merit pay for test scores. Beverly L. Hall ”earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.” However, the school lost $750,000 in state and federal aid that could have been used to help the students who were failing and reading at substandard levels. Instead, the cheating skewed the results.
Dr. Hall, who retired in 2011, was charged with racketeering, theft, influencing witnesses, conspiracy and making false statements. Prosecutors recommended a $7.5 million bond for her; she could face up to 45 years in prison.
During the decade she led the district of 52,000 children, many of them poor and African-American, Atlanta students often outperformed wealthier suburban districts on state tests.
Those test scores brought her fame — in 2009, the American Association of School Administrators named her superintendent of the year and Arne Duncan, the secretary of education, hosted her at the White House.
And fortune — she earned more than $500,000 in performance bonuses while superintendent.
On Friday, prosecutors essentially said it really was too good to be true. Dr. Hall and the 34 teachers, principals and administrators “conspired to either cheat, conceal cheating or retaliate against whistle-blowers in an effort to bolster C.R.C.T. scores for the benefit of financial rewards associated with high test scores,” the indictment said, referring to the state’s Criterion-Referenced Competency Test.
Reached late Friday, Richard Deane, Dr. Hall’s lawyer, said they were digesting the indictment and making arrangements for bond. “We’re pretty busy,” he said.
This is just another case of if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Once again we have public school educators and administrators screwing over America’s youth. What message does this send, the only way you can succeed is to cheat? It is bad enough that much of our public school education system can be deemed a crime against children, but this brings it to new levels.
