DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. — On Tuesday, Zach Adams, the man facing charges in the disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo, was charged with coercion of a witness. According to the arrest warrant, Adams asked another Chester County inmate who was being transferred to the Obion County Jail to get a message to his brother, who is jailed there on federal firearm charges. The warrant states Adams asked the unnamed inmate to – “Tell my brother he is the one who started this (expletive) and if he don’t shut his mouth he will be in the hole beside her.” According to the TBI, the statement was heard by at least one other inmate. Adams is charged with first degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping in the April 2011 disappearance of Bobo in Decatur County. Bobo family pastor Don Franks told WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News he and Holly’s family are confident Adams is the person responsible for Holly’s disappearance and death. Franks said it was difficult to hear the alleged statement made by Adams, but it is one step closer to finding justice for Holly. “It’s a very difficult time especially when there is a new release come out or new information comes out,” Pastor Don Franks said. “It brings back a lot of memories [and] it triggers a lot of emotion. As events unfold, it just heightens the fact of the accuracy of what they are doing.” Close family friends said they are actively praying investigators are on the right path. Franks said the Bobos are still strong in their faith, and he asked the community continue their prayer for answers. “I just hope and pray that God continues to soften people’s hearts, he continues to lead the investigators’ eyes and their hands and feet wherever they go just so they can find something that will lead to where she is,” family friend Mallory Jones said. Loved ones said although heartbroken, Holly’s family remains strong in their faith. Holly’s mother Karen sent close friends a text quoting Bible verse Hebrews 13:6 The text message reads: “‘So that I may boldly say the Lord is my helper and I will not fear what man shall do unto me’ Hebrews 13:6. Thank you all for your continued support of our family and Holly. Please continue to pray for the investigators.” “I think they are stronger in their faith then they have ever been and they are more determined as all of us are in this community to see justice for Holly,” Franks said. Adams remains jailed in Chester County without bond. His next court appearance is Wednesday in Decaturville.
