TBI files new charge against suspect in Holly Bobo murder

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) – An additional charge has been filed against the man accuse in the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo.

Officials with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 29-year-old Zachary Adams was charged Tuesday with coercion of a witness in the case.

Adams was already indicted by a Decatur County grand jury in March with felony first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping. Bobo, a 20-year-old nursing student at the time of her disappearance, was taken from her family's home in Decatur County in 2011.

The additional charge was filed after new information developed in the case. Officials did not provide the details of what led to the charge.

"We will not tolerate any kind of coercion in criminal cases, but in a case like this, which has attracted so much interest an requires so many resources, rest assured we will fight hard to protect the integrity of our work as we seek justice for the family and friends of Holly Bobo," TBI Director Mark Gwyn said in a release.

Anyone with information about Bobo's disappearance has again been urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463).
