After the jury was let out of the courtroom, Bobo’s mother Karen hugged prosecutor Jennifer Nichols and Bobo’s father Dana hugged Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn.

Adams, who pleaded not guilty, is the first of three men to go to trial in the kidnapping, rape and killing of Bobo. Also charged are Jason Autry and John Dylan Adams. Autry was offered immunity to testify.

Bobo, who was reported missing on April 13, 2011, lived with her family in Decatur County, Tenn. and was a nursing student at the University of Tennessee at Martin. She was last seen by her brother, Clint Bobo, in the early hours of the morning.

He reported seeing his sister around 7:30 a.m. being led into the woods by a man, who he told investigators he initially assumed was Holly’s boyfriend. But after finding blood outside, Clint said he called 911.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) began a massive search for Bobo. It would eventually become the costliest and most exhaustive missing persons search in the state’s history.

On Sept. 7, 2014, two men in the woods came across the skeletal remains of what would be later identified as the nursing student. Her body was discovered about 400 yards into the woods in northern Decatur County, approximately 20 miles away from her parents’ home.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn issued a statement after the verdict saying he hoped it would bring closure to the family.

“Since the start of this investigation, our priority has been to pursue justice for the family and friends of Holly Bobo,” Gwyn said. “Today, though we are gratified by the jury’s verdict, our thoughts remain with them.

 “We pursued this case as we do all others: to the best of our abilities,” he said. “I am proud of the dedicated work of our Agents and Forensic Scientists, and thank the prosecution team for their tireless efforts in this case. We hope today’s verdict brings a small sense of closure to those who loved Holly Bobo and stand prepared to assist prosecutors in the trials of the additional defendants in this case.”
