    The only one on trial here is Zach Adams. He is the only one being judged and sentenced today. Any sleuthing of peripheral family members and friends or information not brought out during trial will be removed. You may discuss information that was testified to but beyond that please be mindful of our terms of service.:

    Please thank this post to indicate that you have read it...

    The Bobo family has been through so much. They fought so hard for justice. It is heartbreaking to realize the depth of their pain. They displayed strength, courage, and dignity. I hope the verdict and sentence brings them the peace they deserve after all the years of agony. For Holly I hope the real truth was found.

    Websleuth friends, we came together here from all walks of life to honor a beautiful young woman whose life was cut short in a horrific manner. Going through an emotional trial like this one creates a unique bond. We delved deeply into every detail of the case in search of the truth. There were so many compassionate caring people posting on the case, working together, while details of the case in court unfolded. Thank you for being here.

    This was the case that made me join Websleuths. I can't believe that it's been six years before she finally received justice, and my heart goes out to her family all over again for having to go through the trial. I hope that this resolution brings them some healing and peace.

    I've seen a lot of discussion about the jury and reasonable doubt, and just wanted to point out that, as the judge mentioned, the jurors are the arbiters of fact. They decide who is credible and who is not. Once they believe a witness, that witness's testimony becomes a fact. Any inconsistencies we see here were obviously not seen as inconsistencies by the jurors. Also, there is a big difference between doubt and reasonable doubt. Even further, there is a difference between murder and felony murder, and how complicity theory relates to them both. I do not believe that Zach was the one who grabbed Holly and took her away from her home, but that did not need to occur for the guilty verdict. If he was guilty of any participation/assistance along the way, he is guilty. Hell, he could've used a weapon to make her move from one room of a home to another and that is enough for kidnapping in my state. I have no reasonable doubt that, at minimum, he participated with Shayne Austin in the commission of these crimes.

    I feel that they asked for that dry erase board to list the key witnesses and then decide if they believed them or not...clearly they believed enough of JA to convict...he must be celebrating wherever he is last night and today...he put on a very good show.

    I probably would've needed a dry erase board if I was them just to keep track of the elements of each charge. But yes, it's possible that they listed the witnesses. I personally don't think that JA's testimony was 100% necessary to convict on some of those charges, though. There were plenty of other witnesses, including the girlfriend, that supports some of the charges. I can't recall every moment of the case, but if IIRC only JA testified to the rape, so they must have believed him if they convicted ZA on those charges. I believe most of what JA testified to, but not all.

    I noticed when Zach came back in for the verdict he was not wearing makeup and the circles under his eyes were visible again. I wonder when he comes back today if he is back in the foundation makeup to cover his big dark circles under his eyes. To me that was a smart thing for his defense attorney to do.
