Tensions high in Holly Bobo's hometown as locals await verdict


Just after 3:30 p.m. on the second day of deliberation in the murder trial accusing Zach Adams of Holly Bobo's murder, the jury reentered the courtroom to ask Judge Creed McGinley a question regarding the case.

Zachary Adams was found guilty of first degree murder for killing Holly Bobo.

Bobo was 20 when she vanished from her home in the rural West Tennessee town of Parsons in April 2011.

If this happens, sentencing will begin right away, and jurors will have to decide if Adams deserves the death penalty.

Adams did not testify in his own defense.

In his closing argument, Hagerman said it was Austin who walked with Bobo into the woods. Walker said he told Britt that investigators believed he had kidnapped and harmed Bobo, and disposed of her belongings.

Jurors returned to the private room where they are continuing deliberations in the high-profile trial for the man charged with kidnapping, raping, and killing nursing student Holly Bobo.

Bobo's disappearance from Parsons sparked a massive search and the case received national attention.

The names of all four men had surfaced early in the investigation, Hagerman said, but a former Tennessee Bureau of Investigation lead detective became convinced a sex offender was responsible for the killing and "didn't listen" to the clues that pointed to Adams as the killer.

Bobo's brother Clint testified that he saw an unidentified man wearing camouflage leading his sister into woods behind the family's home.
