(Decatur County, TN) The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will hold a news conference this afternoon to announce, “new and significant developments” in the Holly Bobo.

This morning, Zach Adams, who is charged with felony first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in the Bobo case, was in court.

Aggravated assault charges against Adams, in a separate case, were dropped when the victim refused to testify.

We are told there is a special grand jury meeting this afternoon related to the Holly Bobo case.

Adams entered a not guilty plea to the Bobo charges.

Our Katie Rufener (@KRufener_WREG3) will be at the courthouse and at the news conference which we plan to stream live on wreg.com.

Adams is being held in the Chester County jail without bond.

It’s been three years since Holly Bobo disappeared.

It was April 13, 2011, when her brother told authorities he saw Bobo following a man in hunting clothes into the woods near the family home in Darden.

Police and family searched but were unable to find her.

Investigators have not revealed what evidence they have against the suspect, or if they have found a body.

Adams have a violent past and some say they are not surprised he was arrested.

        these comments are so predictable. next, someone is going to comment and tell starup and 122811 why does it always have to be about race? as if EVERY other comment board about black crime isn’t laced with racist comments. i usually don’t even waste my energy commenting. but hey, it’s a slow day here.

    Woudn’t the brother be the prime suspect in the case considering he was the last to see her? Just saying…typically that is what would happen. Seems odd.

  • Aha!

    Hey, Dixie. The TBI and probably the FBI ruled him out a long time ago. Do you know how rare it is for fratricide to occur?

    when the arrest was made of the suspect, there was an older man that quote” if you know what i know ” who was he and has he been quesitoned? what does he know regarding this case? what is he hiding? who is he protecting.
