UPDATE: The man charged with the kidnapping and murder of Holly Bobo is now accused of threatening his own brother.

Investigators say Zachary Adams told a jail inmate, "Tell my brother he is the one who started this and if he doesn't shut his mouth he will be in the hole beside her." 'Her' meaning Holly.

Adams has pleaded not guilty to Bobo's murder. She disappeared in April 2011 outsider her home in Parsons.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has charged Zachary Rye Adams with an additional criminal count in its ongoing investigation into the disappearance of Holly Bobo.

Through the course of this investigation in recent weeks, additional information was developed that led special agents to secure an arrest warrant today, charging Adams with a single count of Coercion of Witness. Previously, on March 5th, a special Decatur County Grand Jury returned indictments on the 29-year-old, charging him with Felony First Degree Murder and Especially Aggravated Kidnapping in connection to the disappearance and murder of Holly Bobo.

"We will not tolerate any kind of coercion in criminal cases," said TBI Director Mark Gywn. "But in a case like this, which has attracted so much interest and required so many resources, rest assured we will fight hard to protect the integrity of our work, as we seek justice for the family and friends of Holly Bobo."

On the morning of April 13, 2011, Bobo disappeared from her home on Swan Johnson Road in Decatur County. TBI, along with local and federal authorities, have spent several hundreds of manpower hours on this investigation, which remains active and ongoing. The TBI urges anyone with information about the Bobo case to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.

Adams was served with the warrant today and is still being held in the Chester County Jail without bond.
