In the case of Holly Bobo, in which the 20-year-old nursing student went missing and was murdered three years ago, Zachary Adams – the suspect in the case – pleaded not guilty on Tuesday, according to a Yahoo! News report on Tuesday.
Reportedly, many questions have not been answered by authorities in the case, even though they made headlines with the recent arrest of Adams. For example, the connection between Holly Bobo and the suspect is not known. Additionally, it is not clear as to how Bobo died, and her body has never been found for evidence in the case. Overall, the authorities who arrested Adams aren’t revealing much in the way of evidence it is assumed they must have acquired to make the arrest. Stating that the case is “ongoing” is about all that authorities will say about the investigation at this point.
While being in Decatur County courtroom for less than five minutes on Tuesday, Attorney Jennifer Lynn Thompson entered the not guilty plea for Adams while he was present. Bobo’s relatives and friends were also at the hearing.
Prosecutors are considering a death penalty request if they get a conviction in this case in which Bobo disappeared on April 13, 2011, outside of her home near Parsons – some 120 miles northeast of Memphis. Bobo’s brother said they saw a man in a leading her into the woods. That’s the last time she was seen.
Adams, the only suspect in the case, has previously been charged in several West Tennessee jurisdictions, including assault.
