Second Arrest Made in Holly Bobo Case

Apr 30, 2014


Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agents have  made a second arrest in connection to the disappearance and murder of Holly Bobo, a former University of Tennessee at Martin Nursing Student.  Bobo disappeared from her home near Decaturville, TN on the morning of April 13, 2011.

In recent weeks, TBI Special Agents developed enough evidence to prompt special grand jury indictments for Jason Wayne Autry, 39, of Holladay, Tennessee.  Zachary Rye Adams was arrested in March.

Authorities charged Autry with one count of Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and one count of First Degree Felony Murder, the same charges that Adams faces

Autry, is currently in the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Davidson County on an unrelated Aggravated Assault conviction. 

After  hundreds of searches, this case has been the most exhaustive and expensive in TBI history. The investigation remains active, with the possibility of additional charges and arrests.
