The skull was found 15 miles away from the home of Zachary Adams on Adams Lane in Holladay, Tennessee. Other reports say the skull was found only 6 miles away from Adam’s home. Zachary Adams has been charged with the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo. 39 year old Jason Wayne Autry was also indicted on aggravated kidnapping & first degree murder charges in case of missing Holly Bobo … Prosecutors Plan to Indict Shayne Kyle Austin The skull was discovered on private property just off County Corner Road in Decatur County by two farmers who were looking for the herb ginseng. Accounting to accounts, the skull was sitting on top of some brush in a heavily wooded area. The skull was sent to the TBI crime lab in Memphis for DNA testing.
The remains have not yet been positively ID’s … there are currently two people missing in Decatur County. Holly Bobo went missing in the morning of April 13, 2011 at her family’s home in Darden, TN.
The Decatur County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Sunday that a human skull was found in the woods not far from the home of Zachary Adams, one of the two men charged in the death of Holly Bobo.
The remains, which were found about 15 miles from Adams’ property on Adams Lane in Holladay, Tennessee, have yet to be linked to the missing nursing student.
Sheriff Keith Byrd told News 2 they received the call in their 911 center just after 10:30 a.m. Sunday and he notified the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
The skull was discovered on private property just off County Corner Road by two farmers from Benton County who were out searching for the herb ginseng.
Authorities said one of the farmers was so startled by the discovery he thought he was going to have a heart attack.
“It was partially buried in leaves, but you could see enough of it to tell that it was indeed a human skull,” Sheriff Byrd said. “There wasn’t anything there but bone.”
He told News 2 Monday there is a very faint log road that leads into the area where the remains were found.
“[The road] has grown up and it would be hard to get a vehicle down there,” Sheriff Byrd explained. “Of course with an ATV, you could.”
The skull was sent to the TBI crime lab in Memphis for testing.
Decatur County Sheriff Keith Byrd said Monday that testing could quickly exclude the remains from belonging to missing nursing student Holly Bobo. He added they could easily belong to a hitchhiker from the nearby interstate.
The remains were found Sunday in a remote area just off I-40 in the small community of Holladay. Officials said two hunters out digging for the herb ginseng discovered the human skull lying on top of the ground.
The TBI, along with the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department, were called out to search a half-acre wide crime scene.
Henderson County, Tenn. Judge Rules Enough Evidence to Continue the Case Against Jeff Pearcy in 2011 Disapperance of Holly Bobo in Darden, TN … Witness Claims to Have Seen Holly Bobo on Video After She Went Missing
Oh Dear God if True …
A Henderson County, Tennessee judge ruled today that there was enough evidence and probably cause to go forward and continue the case against Jeff Pearcy in the disappearance of Holly Bobo. Pearcy is charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence . During today’s hearing, the state called witness Sandra King who testified she saw a video, about 30 and 45 seconds in length, featuring a woman crying with her hands tied-up and crying. Sandra King said the woman had blond hair and looked like Holly Bobo. King indicated Pearcy’s half-brother Mark shot the alleged video. King is believed to have lived with Jeff Pearcy for about two months from March to May 2014. To make matters worse, Sandra Kind stated, “He [Jeff] told me Mark [Pearcy] had video showing Zach Adams having sex with Bobo.” Holly Bobo has been missing since 7:30 am Wednesday morning, April 13, 2011 at her home on Swan Johnson Road in Darden, TN when she was kidnapped from her home in Decatur County, Tennessee.
Witness Sandra King testifying in Court
Holly Bobo was seen on video after she disappeared, according to a witness during a court proceeding Tuesday.
Jeff Pearcy was in court when a Henderson County judge ruled there is enough evidence to continue the case against Pearcy who is charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence .
Sandra King, who once lived with Pearcy, testified she saw a video of a tied up woman crying, “I seen [sic] a woman tied up. She was crying… she was blonde. Yes, it looked like Holly Bobo. I did not want to see more.”
King also testified Jeff told her Mark had a video of Zach Adams having sex with Holly Bobo according to WTVF-TV.
Missing: Holly Bobo
Zach Adams is charged with felony first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in the disappearance of Holly Bobo, though a body has never been found. Mark Pearcy has been held in Carroll County without bond.
Suspect Jeff Pearcy
King testified that Zachary Adams, who has been charged with murder and kidnapping in connection with Bobo’s disappearance, was also in the video.
“I knew what he was fixing to do; I did not want to see,” King said.
Jeffrey Pearcy and his brother, Mark Pearcy, are charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact in Bobo’s murder.
King testified that Jeffrey Pearcy showed her the video that Mark Pearcy took of Adams having sex with Bobo. She said Bobo was tied up and crying.
So far, nobody else has seen the video, including investigators, so they set Jeffrey Pearcy up with a phone call.
“I said to him, ‘You know that video of Holly, if it would have been you in that video, I would have watched it,’ and he said, ‘Yes I know,’” King said.
Jeffrey Pearcy said he couldn’t hear what King was saying over the phone and believes this was all a mistake. He said this is a sex tape with Mark Pearcy and his ex-wife, who also happens to be named Holly.
