Holly Bobo: 2nd Suspect Arrested


Second suspect charged in disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo

Authorities in Tennessee have charged a second person in the case of a Tennessee nursing student abducted from her family's home three years ago.
Jason Wayne Autry was charged with aggravated kidnapping and felony murder by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, authorities announced Tuesday.
At the same time, Zachary Adams, who previously was charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping in the case, was additionally charged with coercion.
The charges against both Adams and Autry--who has a lengthy criminal history and is currently incarcerated at the Riverbend Maximum Security Facility-- were handed down after evidence was presented to a grand jury.
Autry was charged after sworn witness statements said he was seen with Adams and Bobo after the time of her abduction. Investigatorssaid they anticipate making more arrests in the coming weeks.
“We believe there are others who have information and may have been involved,” TBI Director Mark Gwyn said at a late afternoon press conference. “This sends a clear message that we will be knocking on their door.”
Bobo, a nursing student at the University of Tennessee at Martin, was last seen at her home in Parsons on April 13, 2011, by her older brother, who reported seeing her being taken into the woods by an unidentified man dressed in camouflage.
A small amount of blood was found in the family's carport, where Holly was believed taken from while on her way to school, police sources told FoxNews.com at the time of her disappearance. Despite extensive searches that included bloodhounds and high-resolution underwater imaging, authorities found no trace of the 20-year-old woman, who is presumed dead.
In late February, Adams, 29, was charged with murder and aggravated kidnapping in the case.
"We believe we can prove that she was taken forcefully from her home without her consent," District Attorney General Hansel McAdams said at the time. He said he will consider pursing the death penalty if Adams is convicted. 
Investigators would not get into details about why Adams was charged. His home, however, is about 15 miles from where Bobo lived in Parsons, a small town about 100 miles northeast of Memphis in Decatur County.
He has pleaded not guilty and remains in jail without bond.
Bobo's brother, Clint, reported to police that he saw a man in camouflage clothes leading his sister into the woods behind the family's home. He said he initially thought she was being taken into the woods by her boyfriend, but grew concerned when he saw the man's arm holding onto his sister. He called his mother, who then contacted 911.

Witnesses that saw them with Holly after the abduction? Where have they been all this time? Why are they talking now?

The suspect's brother is evidently talking...

The witnesses are not going to appear on TV and be ripped to shreds like the mindless "experts" the media engages to bully, stalk, and harass-even threatening life and limb-to force the conclusion they need for their book.

Just look back on what was said, by whom, and the intended purpose.

Action speaks louder than words.

Anon at 8:26 am.....I agree with GeekRad. The witnesses should have gone to LE. (The first 48 hours are crucial.)

Why is appearing on TV a concern in your comment? Odd.

Perhaps I missed something in the article, but I don't see where it says these are new witnesses. It is quite possible that the general public has been unaware of all of the details that the police possesses. Perhaps they have had these witnesses all along, but only just recently with the first guys arrest has further proof been laid down to really give credit to those witnesses. We do well to remember, what we read is not always the whole picture.

Third Man to be Charged. Shayne Kyle Austin had signed an immunity agreement, but according to his lawyer the agreement may be null and void for untruthfulness.

Anon, what are you talking about? Just look back on what was said by whom and the intended purpose? What action speaks louder than words? I must have missed something. I am not following you.

And yes, to clarify, I was asking why the witnesses just now came forawrd to tell LE. I am wondering what may have cahnged to cause them to do so now.

It pains me to imagine what Holly went through at the hands of these methed out freaks.

It is hard to wrap my mind around even a single person being so evil.

It is impossible for me to understand how a group of at least 4 people could ALL be without human compassion, and participate in the murder of this beautiful young woman.

Hi Geekrad,

Check out the article about the impending 3rd arrest. It sounds to me like the brother in prison rolled. He gave up his brother, and the names of the others involved. Then one of the people he named struck an immunity deal for providing sworn testimony. He gave the testimony, which allowed the grand jury to indict Adam and the other guy, but now his immunity is in question and his attorney anticipates him being arrested for his involvment. (Immunity deal is based on absolute honesty, if they can prove he lied about anything, or his level of involvement, it is void.)

At least that's what I gather, based on all that has happened with the case in the past few weeks.

GeekRad said...

Good point mj and when you read the news articles coming out there are more arrests coming, more witnesses and indications that LE has been talking to witnesses for a long time. Looks like we will be haering more soon.

GeekRad said...

Hi Jen Ow, just saw your post. Yes, looks like more to come and it has been in the works for a while. Thanks!

These were some bold intruders. They came right up to Holly Bobo's home and attacked her in her own garage. I wonder if her brother feels fortunate to be alive. If they had known there was a witness, I am sure they would have eliminated him also.

GeekRad, I have always appreciated your comments and grounded understanding that we as internet readers do not see the behind the scenes action and there is much, yet to be known...

GeekRad said...

Thanks m j . I appreciate your comments too.

Are you going to do an analysis on Autrys Comments on the News 5/19/14 he will be on tomorrow too. The Part where he said "I did not Bother that girl" its not like he's accused of pushing her down on the playground. I would love to read what you think of his interview.
