Remains determined to be Holly Bobo, family speaks

The human remains found in Holladay, Tennessee on Sunday have been determined to be the skull of Holly Bobo, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The skull was found by hunters digging for ginseng in the woods less than 10 miles from the home of Zachary Adams, who has been charged with Bobo’s murder. The remains were confirmed by dental records within one day of being sent to the Memphis bureau of TBI, agents said.

Bobo was reported missing from her Parsons, Tennessee home on April 13, 2011. Local law enforcement and TBI agents have been searching for Bobo periodically for three years, finally catching a break in the case in February when Adams was charged with especially aggravated murder.

In a conference held last night at the Decatur County Sheriff Department, newly elected sheriff and Bobo family friend, Keith Byrd gave more detail on the circumstances surrounding the skull found near the Adams property.

“Every road in that area was searched,” he said, adding that TBI agents had done fly-overs of the area while ground teams searched.

Bobo’s skulls was found under a pile of leaves roughly 1000 feet off the road.
