Family of Holly Bobo releases first statement since indictment

Posted: Updated:

The family of Holly Bobo has released their first statement since a suspect was arrested in connection to her murder.

Late Thursday night, the family's statement was posted on the "Bring Holly Bobo Home" Facebook page:

"In the recent days, it feels like everything has come against our hope and it seems that all our trust was shattered. We still have hope because of who our hope is in. Holly had that same hope and faith, because of Jesus Christ we will see her again. Jesus will provide us the strength and grace to see us through."

On Friday, the page posted a statement from Holly's boyfriend, Drew Scott:

"There are no words to describe my gratitude to our Lord and Savior and all of you, especially for all the prayers and for all you have done for our precious Holly. All the time of searching, handing out fliers, and most of all for your prayers and not giving up. I know our sweet girl is in heaven and has seen the outpouring of love this community and the world has shown her. May God bless each and every one of you, especially Hollys family and friends during this tragic time. Rest In Peace our sweet angel, I will love you forever."

In a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn announced a specially called Decatur County grand jury had issued a true bill and indicted 29-year-old Zachary Rye Adams on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder.

Bobo was 20 years old when she disappeared outside her Darden, TN, home on April 13, 2011, as Bobo's brother, Clint, saw her being led away from the home between 7:30 and 8 a.m.

The investigation appeared to pick up steam last Friday after agents from the TBI and FBI searched several locations in Decatur and surrounding counties, including the home and property of Adams in Holladay, TN, about 15 miles from the Bobo residence.

Adams was arrested last Friday on unrelated assault charges in which authorities said he held a gun to the head of a woman and threatened to "gut" her.

Adams is currently being held without bond in nearby Chester County. He will be arraigned on the current charges on Tuesday.
