Zach Adams Faces Holly Bobo's Family For First Time

DECATURVILE, Tenn. -- The man accused of kidnapping and killing Holly Bobo pleaded not guilty on Tuesday afternoon, and faced Holly's family and friends for the very first time since his arrest.

Zach Adams' three minute hearing was witnessed by Holly's very emotional family, friends and supporters.

"Everybody cares; there is nobody that's indifferent to this," Gail Jordan, a concerned resident tearfully said. "This is supposed to happen in big cities, not little towns like Parsons and Decaturville."

Adams appeared in shackles and was wearing a bullet proof vest during the hearing. Next to him stood his attorney Jennifer Lynn Thompson, who entered in a not guilty plea on his behalf.

"It's going to be a long hard emotional painful ride," Rickey Alexander, a family friend, said.

Judge Creed McGinley set a status hearing for April 9, which is just four days before the 3-year anniversary of Holly's disappearance.

Adams' attorney would not comment on the case, and is only serving as his temporary council.

According to the judge, his permanent council will be announced at his April 9 status hearing.
