The three men accused of Holly Bobo's brutal kidnapping, rape and murder are set to go to trial five years after she went missing. Click through RadarOnline.com's gallery to see the shocking crime scene and get the details on the Tennessee men being prosecuted for the killing.
Bobo was just 21 when she was violently kidnapped from her home in rural Tennessee by a man in a camouflage uniform on April 13, 2011. Her brother said he heard her arguing with a man in the garage and watched her walk away with the man whom he assumed was her boyfriend. Blood was found in the garage, but there were no other traces of her found for years.
A manhunt ensued across the state for the young blonde nursing student, but the case seemed cold for years. However, her remains were found in wooded area nearly 20 miles from her home in 2014. The man who found her in the area known for hunting was reportedly "disturbed" by what he found.
Dylan Adams has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, first-degree murder, and rape in Bobo's death. He allegedly admitted to police that he raped Bobo and was originally charged with disposing of evidence, but those charges were dropped. A relative claimed that Dylan had the "mind of a child," and was not capable of committing the murder.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations claimed that they had sworn statements from witnesses who told them Jason Autry and Dylan Adams were seen with Bobo, who was alive at the time, after the kidnapping. Autry gave an interview in 2014, and said, "I want to let them know they have an innocent man right here. I'm a drug addict and thief, but I'm not a killer."
Zachary Adams was the first person to be charged in Bobo's murder in 2014, before her remains were found. An affidavit from the TBI revealed that Zachary gave a message to another inmate in jail to pass to his brother. The warrant said the message was, "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," The Jackson Sun reported.
News Channel 5 Nashville reporter Chris Conte shared a photo of the courtroom where Autry and the Adams brothers will likely stand trial in April 2017.
Conte also shared a photo on his Twitter account of Autry leaving court on November 15, 2016. Stay with RadarOnline.com for updates to the story.
