Attorneys for suspect in Holly Bobo case want indictments dismissed

Posted 5:50 pm, March 17, 2015, by Ashley Crockett, Updated at 05:51pm, March 17, 2015



The attorneys for a man accused in the Holly Bobo case have filed a motion to dismiss the indictments due to unnecessary delay.

Jason Autry is indicted on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree felony murder.

His attorneys argue Autry isn’t getting a trial in a timely manner, so the charges should be dropped

Posted 6:45 am, April 15, 2015, by George Brown

The motions ask for evidence in the case against Jason Autry, who who was indicted on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree felony murder, to be turned over by a Shelby County prosecutor or charges be dropped or the prosecutor be held in contempt of court.

A judge originally ordered evidence be turned over by last December.

Judges allows special DA in Holly Bobo murder case

WSMV-TV

DECATURVILLE — Brothers Zach and Dylan Adams, who are both charged in the case, were in the courtroom on Wednesday morning.

Zach Adams’ attorney argued that District Attorney Matt Stowe was not taken off the case for legitimate reasons.

Stowe recused his office from handling the case after a dispute with Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn about how the case was being handled.

Back in January, Shelby County District Attorney Jennifer Nichols was appointed as the special prosecutor to replace Stowe. Nichols had been assisting Stowe with the case prior to the dispute with the TBI.

Dylan Adams’ attorney argued in court Wednesday that it was unconstitutional for the court to appoint a special DA.

Ultimately, the judge disagreed after about an hour and a half of back-and-forth, choosing to keep Nichols on board.

The 8-count indictment charges all three men with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, and three counts of aggravated rape.

According to the indictments, counts one and three of first degree murder are associated with the kidnapping of Bobo , and count two of murder is associated with the premeditated murder of Bobo.

Wow!  It took a while, but I'm glad they finally have enough evidence to indict these three.

Published June 03, 2015FoxNews.com

Prosecutors said Wednesday that they will seek the death penalty for three men charged with murder in the 2011 disappearance and killing of a Tennessee nursing student if they are convicted at trial.

Special prosecutor Jennifer Nichols acknowledged in Decatur County court that notices to seek death had been filed.

"The murder was especially heinous, atrocious or cruel in that it involved torture or serious physical abuse beyond that necessary to produce death," the filings say.

Sentencing rescheduled in Mark Pearcy case
Maranda Faris, The Jackson Sun 10:58 p.m. CDT July 6, 2015

"....Pearcy, charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, was scheduled for sentencing in his federal court case Monday, but will have to reappear later this month due to a U.S. Supreme Court decision.

In June, the Supreme Court ruled any case with certain wording related to evading arrest in a federal case would have a shorter sentence. Pearcy's case could fall under this revision.....

....Pearcy is scheduled to appear for sentencing on July 23 at 10:30 a.m.

Pearcy's uncle, Joe Pearcy, was listed as a co-defendant in the case. Joe Pearcy was sentenced to two years of probation in March 2013.

Mark Pearcy was previously charged in Decatur County with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence in the 2011 kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo. Both Mark Pearcy and his half-brother Jeffrey Pearcy were charged in the Bobo case but those charges were dismissed last fall. ..."

Defense Attorneys Receive Full Access To Evidence In Holly Bobo Case (Video)

By Nick Beres.
July 13, 2015

CREATED 3:05 PM - UPDATED: 6:00 PM

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - All of the evidence in the Holly Bobo murder case is finally on the table. Defense attorneys now have full access to the criminal file completing a big step toward setting a trial date.

There is said to be an entire room at Tennessee Bureau of Investigation headquarters dedicated to evidence collected in the Bobo case over the past four years. The evidence is the heart of the capital cases now pending against three murder suspects.

For months now the attorneys for Zack Adams, his brother Dylan and Jason Autry have been waiting to see the evidence prosecutors say link their clients to the murder of Holly Bobo. In fact, Autry's former attorney Fletcher Long made quite a stink last year citing one missed delivery after another.

Wow! The state has done an excellent job with this case. At the start, I was concerned they were not forthcoming but I can see they had many fish to fry ... and they have done an excellent job working the case. I hope Zack Adams and Jason Autry are NOT allowed to plea bargain on this case. These are terrible people with no sense of remorse.

New Development In Holly Bobo Case Could Fast-Track Trial (Video)

By: Nick Beres

Posted: 7:17 PM, Oct 15, 2015
Updated: 31 mins ago


The evidence in the Holly Bobo case is so voluminous that the attorneys may need help to get through it all. A proposed plan would hire one person to review and organize it for all the defense teams.

A new development could help fast-track a trial for the three accused murderers and jumpstart prosecution of this high-profile case.

A key issue is the sheer amount of evidence in the case collected after the past four years.

"It's my understanding the state's evidence is extremely voluminous," said NewsChannel5 Legal Analyst, Nick Leonardo.

~Snipped~

It's been more than a year since the first arrest. They wait behind bars, but still have no trial date.

"If you have 30-thousand pages of documents to review it takes some time," said Leonardo.

There's more than just documents. There's photographs and forensic test results on everything from a skull prosecutors say belongs to Holly Bobo to hair fibers found in Zack Adams' home.

Leonardo said it is also death penalty case, which means even more lawyers are on board reviewing the case.

Bobo Murder Suspect Writes Letters With New Details About Case
Nick Beres
7:02 PM, Nov 16, 2015

"....NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Holly Bobo murder suspect, Jason Autry, has revealed details about the high profile case in letters he wrote from prison.

He has been charged with kidnapping and murdering Holly Bobo, and remains isolated at Riverbend Maximum security prison.

However, in a Newschannel 5 exclusive the accused killer broke his silence in a series of letters to reporter, Nick Beres.

In the latest surprise twist to the case, Autry talked about a potential new witness against him and for the first time he pointed the finger at co-defendent Zack Adams.

"I'm a drug addict and a thief. Are you a killer? No sir. By no means. I'm not a killer," said Autry in an interview one year ago from Riverbend prison.

"Did you kidnap and kill Holly Bobo? Were you part of that? By no means Nick, did I bother that girl," said Autry.

Since then, nothing; no word from him until Nick received a series of letters handwritten from his jail cell in recent months.

Since the interview, three people, Autry, Zach Adams and Adams' younger brother Dylan, have been accused of kidnapping and murdering 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo in 2011.

"They have changed from a regular murder case to a death penalty case," said Newschannel 5 legal analyst Nick Leonardo.

If convicted, Autry will be executed, and of that, he wrote, "The collateral damage this terror tactic is reaping is unreal. Such as innocent kids, grandkids, parents, friends, who support me...."

Jailhouse Informant Possible Key New Witness In Holly Bobo Murder Case
Nick Beres
11:00 PM, Feb 7, 2016

"....So what story did Adams tell?

Hendricks sent a letter -- unsolicited -- to NewsChannel 5 outlining the very graphic conversations.

He wrote that he "... spent months next to Zack Adams."

And that Adams told him "... the following disturbing information" about what happened to Holly Bobo:

Adams "... stated that about a few days before she died Holly was at his house with his brother Dylan and ..." Jason Autry.

"After this Zack and Jason planned to kidnap and rob Holly for money to get drugs. Zack said when Holly didn't have much money Jason got mad and started beating on Holly."

Judge: Ex-judge Gasaway can't represent wife


"...CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Former judge John Gasaway won't be allowed to represent his wife, who is charged with three counts of theft, because money she transferred into the personal bank account she shared with her husband could include funds she is accused of stealing.

Specially assigned Judge Paul G. Summers of Nashville heard arguments from special district attorneys assigned to the case, and John Gasaway, who resigned as a Circuit Court Judge in December.

Former Clarksville Attorney Carrie Gasaway was convicted of extortion in May 2015, along with her former law partner, Fletcher Long. She now faces three additional theft charges in Montgomery County...."


"....The Tennessee Supreme Court officially permanently disbarred Carrie Gasaway on Oct. 5 and Long on Sept. 15. Long is a familiar name for his clients involved in high-profile cases. He represented Brandon Vandenburg, one of four former Vanderbilt University football players accused of rape; the so-called Wooded Rapist, who was connected to as many as 13 victims; and one of the Memphis men accused of killing Holly Bobo, whose partial remains were found three years after she disappeared...."

Holly Bobo rape, murder trial presents legal challenges, attorneys say


".... Starting September 9, attorneys will select their 15 jurors to determine the fate of Adams, who has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, rape and murder charges.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, are seeking the death penalty for charges of premeditated murder and perpetration of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape.

The trial was originally expected to begin this month, but was postponed until September after one of Adams' attorneys requested more time to test a gun believed to be connected to the death of Bobo....."


"....The offer means prosecutors are relying on Autry's testimony to convict Zachary Rye Adams, according to legal experts, who describe the case as "challenging" given the number of players involved and a potential lack of physical evidence.

"That means they need him desperately to convict the other guy," said David Raybin, a prominent criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor who helped write Tennessee code. "If they got an eyeball witness there, it makes for a better case."

"The bottom line is this: They've told him [Autry] that 'We won't prosecute you if you tell the truth,'" said Raybin, who is not involved in the case.

"You’re incriminating yourself but you get immunity from prosecution," Raybin told Fox News. "And usually under Tennessee law, if you are granted immunity and not prosecuted, that means you walk." ...."

Trial in the murder of Holly Bobo finally begins as jury hears that meth-addict defendant bragged about raping and shooting the 20-year-old nurse before dumping her body in the woods

"... The first trial of one of Holly Bobo's accused killers has finally begun, six years after the young nurse went missing, with jurors hearing stomach-turning accusations of drugs, rape and murder.

Zachary Adams, 33, took the defendant's chair in a Savanna, Tennessee courtroom Tuesday as the trial began six years after Bobo, the cousin of country music star Whitney Duncan, first disappeared.

Prosecutor Paul Hagerman told the jury that Adams lived in a 'dark, dark world' of meth and morphine, and had abducted the nursing student from her rural home.

Hagerman said that Adams drugged, raped and shot Bobo before discarding her body and bragging about it to friends. ...."


"....The jury was selected Saturday. It is being sequestered.

Adams faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Adams' brother, John Dylan Adams, and another man, Jason Autry, also are charged with kidnapping, rape and murder in the case. ...."

'He said he would tie me up just like he did Holly Bobo': Ex-girlfriend of the meth addict 'who raped and murdered Tennessee nursing student' testifies at his trial as jurors are shown photos of bloodstains in a garage

".... Jurors in the Holly Bobo murder trial on Tuesday were shown photos of bloodstains taken at the scene of the crime and heard from the accused killer's ex-girlfriend, who testified that he had threatened to do to her what he had done to the slain nursing student.

On the second day of Zachary Adams' trial in Savannah, Tennessee, his former girlfriend, Rebecca Earp, who had dated the defendant for more than two years, recounted for the jury how he turned to methamphetamine and morphine after his grandmother passed away and said that their relationship was punctuated by frequent fights and threats of violence on the part of her quick-tempered boyfriend.

On the morning of April 3, 2011 - the day of Holly Bobo's disappearance - Earp said Adams kissed her on the head and left after telling her he was going to haul scrap metal, but she did not believe him... He later called her from his brother's phone, which she said was unusual. When he came home that afternoon, Earp said she observed what looked like fingernail scratches on his neck and arms.

While watching a TV news report about the missing 20-year-old Bobo, Earp said Adams and his friend laughed and said police would never be able to find her. ..."

Jason Autry

'He said 'I need you to help me bury this body'': 'Lookout' testifies about his meth addict friend killing and disposing of Holly Bobo's body


"... A man charged in the case of a slain Tennessee nursing student said Thursday that he helped his friend unload the injured woman's body from a truck and served as a lookout when the friend shot her near a river.

Jason Autry testified in the trial of Zachary Adams in Savannah, Tennessee.

Adams, 33, has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, raping and killing Holly Bobo, who was 20 when she disappeared from her home in Parsons on April 13, 2011.

Her remains were found 3 ½ years later in woods not far from her home in Decatur County, about 100 miles southwest of Nashville.

Adams faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.


Autry also is charged in connection with Bobo's rape, kidnapping and slaying.

He is on a list of witnesses who could get immunity in the case, and he told prosecutor Jennifer Nichols during questioning that he was testifying because he wanted leniency. ...."


"... Autry said Adams provided some graphic details when he told Autry that he, his brother John Dylan Adams and Autry's cousin Shayne Austin had raped Bobo. John Dylan Adams also is charged in the case.

His trial has not been set. Austin was found dead in an apparent suicide in Florida in February 2015...."


"....'He said 'I need you to help me bury this body,'' Autry said. 'He said, 'Train, that's Holly Bobo.''

Adams and Autry drove Adams' truck to the river and retrieved Bobo's body from the truck, he said.

He said they didn't have the necessary tools to dig a grave, so they decided to throw her into the river, at a spot under a bridge.

But Bobo made a sound and moved, indicating she was still alive. Adams retrieved a pistol from his truck, Autry said.

Autry said he told Adams to wait. Autry then walked around the area to make sure no one was around, he said. ...."

Zach Adams

Defense for 'meth addict' accused of murdering nursing student Holly Bobo blames sex offender dubbed 'Chester the Molester' for the killing

"...The highlight of the eighth day of Zachary Adams’ trial came when the defense called to the stand Terry Dicus, the former lead investigator in the Holy Bobo case for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, who told the jury that the prosecution has the wrong person.

Dicus explained that he had ruled out the Adams siblings and a third man named Jason Autry as suspects in the murder early on based on cellphone data, reported the station WKRN.

'I was wasting my time investigating these idiots,' Dicus said, referring to the trio of men.

Instead, Dicus focused on Terry Britt, whose lengthy criminal record stretching back to the 1970s included multiple convictions for sex crimes.

Britt, known locally by the moniker 'Chester the Molester,' lived not far from Holly Bobo’s home in Decatur County, and according to Dicus, his alibi was ‘garbage.'

When interviewed about his whereabouts on the day Bobo went missing, Britt claimed that he and his wife were doing work on their house, Dicus testified Tuesday. ...."

"...Dicus, who was pulled from the case in 2013, also said he collected blonde hair from Britt's home, and noted that his criminal history included targeting eight women who resembled the blonde nursing student.

The strand of hairs, however, did not return a DNA match to Bobo, and Britt was never charged in the woman's killing.

On Monday, Britt, who is currently serving time for an unrelated kidnapping and attempted rape, was called to the stand as a witnesses for the prosecution, saying he had thought investigators would name him a suspect in the Bobo case based on his past offenses, reported WZTV. ..."

".... The jury also heard on Monday from Shawn Cooper, who was being held at the Chester County Jail in March 2014 in an unrelated case when Zachary Adams was brought there after being charged in Bobo's killing.

Cooper was awaiting transfer to Obion County Jail when he says Adams told him he was involved in the 'Holly Bobo murder case.'

Cooper said Adams told him his brother was being held in Obion County Jail, and asked him to relay to John that he should stay quiet or he would 'put him in a hole beside her.'..."

"...Acquaintances and friends of Zachary Adams - as well as fellow jail inmates - have testified that Adams made comments about harming Bobo. ..."

Meth addict, 33, is found GUILTY of murdering nursing student Holly Bobo and dumping her body in the woods

"....On Friday, a jury convicted him of eight counts which included felony rape, felony murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

He now faces the death penalty. Jurors will return to court to begin deliberations for his sentencing on Saturday. ...."


"...'They ripped Holly's clothes off -- her blue jeans and her panties -- and one by one they lined up. They took turns,' prosecutor Jennifer Nichols said on Thursday.

Autry, who said he served as 'lookout' for the Adams brothers who as they disposed of Bobo's body, took the stand last week to tell how they rolled her body up in a rug.

He said he watched as Adams shot her in the head after she moved unexpectedly from inside the carpet. ...."

"... Her brother Clint told the court how he watched as she walked into the woods behind their home with a man dressed in camouflage.

He believed it was her boyfriend at the time and saw no reason to be alarmed but a neighbor who heard screams coming from the home suspected foul play.

She called Bobo's mother, who was at work at the time, to tell her her daughter had been abducted. ..."

Much more....
