(Madison County, TN) A man being held after TBI investigators executed search warrants in the Holly Bobo case has been moved. Zachary Adams has been transferred to from Decatur County to the Chester County Jail. Sources say the transfer is due to overcrowding at the facility in Decatur County. Adams is the owner of property searched Friday in connection to the Holly Bobo case has been arrested. Adams is charged with aggravated assault but it’s not clear why the charges were filed. The search warrants were executed at property off Highway 69 in Decatur County Friday. Investigators wouldn’t say what they were looking for, but at least two vehicles were towed away and a cadaver dog from the Shelby County Sheriff’s office was brought in to help with the search. Saturday, investigators searched a well using underwater cameras. Holly Bobo was 20 years old when she mysteriously disappeared from her home in Parsons, Tenn., in April 2011.
Holly’s brother Clint said he saw her led into the woods by a man wearing camouflage. He said it was too far to clearly identify who was with his sister. There have been many tips in the case, but nothing that has led to significant evidence. According to the TBI, “To say we have a suspect in this case would be premature. We have been working leads on this case which led to the search warrant executions.” A woman who has known Adams for years said the TBI has been on his property before. She said Adams and some of his friends had a run-in with Holly about a week before she was abducted and she believes he knows what happened to her. “Holly was on stage singing and walking around the coon hunt, and they basically followed, stalked her a little bit,” said Danielle Darnell. Adams was booked in the Decatur County Jail at around 3 p.m. Friday and later transferred to another facility. The Decatur County Sheriff’s Office won’t say what the assault charges are about and TBI won’t confirm anything. Investigators said they also executed search warrants in surrounding counties and their investigation could last days. Anyone with tips is asked to call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigators at 1-800-TBI-FIND. The family is also asking people share tips directly with them. Holly’s parents were unavailable for comment Friday. Her cousin, country singer and Survivor contestant Whitney Duncan, tells WREG she’s hoping and praying this leads to answers and Holly’s safe return.
