Another Man Indicted for Kidnapping, Murder of Holly Bobo

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. -- The TBI said Jason Wayne Autry, 39, has been indicted in the murder and kidnapping of nursing student Holly Bobo.

Autry, of Holladay, has been charged with one count of Especially Aggravated Kidnapping and one count of First Degree Felony Murder.

Autry, who has a lengthy criminal history, is currently being held in the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Davidson County on an unrelated Aggravated Assault conviction.

The TBI also said Adams and Autry were longtime friends.

"We have several sworn statements from witnesses that saw Holly Bobo in the presence of Zach Adams and Jason Autry after her disappearance," TBI Director Mark Gwyn said.

The TBI also said that the body of Holly has not been found, but they do have physical evidence being tested at this time. Agents say finding Bobo's body is a top priority.

"It's important for a lot of reasons, but especially for the Bobo family. We believe they deserve to know where their daughter's body is," Gwyn said.

The District Attorney General for the 24th Judicial District, Hansel McCadams, will prosecute the new charges. He will be arraigned Wednesday at 1 p.m. He will have no bond.

Zach Adams was also indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday afternoon on the charge of coercion of a witness.

The investigation remains active and ongoing, with the possibility of additional charges and arrests.

A reward for information leading to additional arrests remains in place. Anyone with information about the case should contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (824-3462).
