Aimed at posters who want to come here out of the blue and argue established facts of the case,
THUS FAR. There will be more we do not know.
We'll discuss that then.
We need a remedial course for posters who are still on 2+2=5 aspects of this case.
You either understand what I mean by that, or you won't.

That person is Adams, who was first taken to the Decatur County Jail. The TBI says Adams smuggled meth into jail when he was transferred to Chester County.

The sheer magnitude of the thought process that went into this post proves that Wolfscratch and Jer29 are two completely different posters!

By the way, great post Wolfie! Informative and thought provoking!

I do not have a link to this "CNN article."

Even as gossip, however, it would tie into the earlier gossipy speculation on Topix that the guy on the carport was her cousin JA (DISTANT cousin to us Tennesseans, IMO), and if she saw him out there in hunting uniform with a turkey carcass, she would not have hidden inside her house.

Except, if I were Holly, I would have wondered why is a distant cousin turkey-hunting in my back yard or woods?(And we Tennesseans usually consider our distant cousins to be creepy, for some reason. lol)

P.S. I think another A was parked back there, waiting for him to bring her to the vehicle, don't y'all?

You know what Flower is saying about hoping there was also perps DNA along with Holly's would make sense in a way because they did take a sample of JD's DNA and they would need a warrant for that and what would they have to test it against? Other posters have mentioned this before.
The problem comes in as to how they could have the perps DNA for 3 yrs. prior to an arrest and at the same time have ZA in and out of jail. Don't felons have to give a DNA sample?
not without a warrant

I am not "dictating" anything.
I am stating common sense.
Feel free to discuss all the gossip you want and idle speculation.
It won't matter until there is actual statements made by LE, the defendant or the family, in addition to what we have now.

Is she one of those cousins we Tennesseans would prefer to think of as DISTANT-----creepy or questionable? lol

And my little laugh is not about this cruel, heinous crime, but at our own human foolishness in how we think about family and esp. COUSINS.

There is no doubt in my mind that if ZA had been around just 30 years ago at the age he is now, and involved in all the criminal behavior that he has been in, that he would have been thrown in the Decatur Co. jail and the key tossed away until they could quickly convict him, then put him a Federal prison for life.....and that would have been before he even murdered anyone.
Today, that county, like many others in the U.S., is overwhelmed with criminals just like him. There are many 'mafia-like' groups involving these low level scum everywhere now. Still no excuse of course, but jails are overcrowded and it takes forever to get a court trial lined up. Forget the "speedy trial' for citizens that was touted so long ago in this country... simply, there is no longer such a thing as a speedy trial. It is frightening, but there are many "Z.A.'s" throughout our nation who have their own revolving door in our county and city jails. The only time they are finally locked up safely is when there is enough evidence to possibly convict them of a homicide, then authorities are forced to lock them up safely from the public. But until they commit a murder that can be proven, they walk our streets. And, many already are killers but they are shrewd enough to avoid getting arrested, and sometimes for years, if ever.
Yeah, it doesn't hurt if you have a judge or two in your pocket either! Those days are long gone for Zach! The Ronco pocket judge isn't going to be able to slice and dice this one! 1200 viewers watching and it just can't handle that kind of volume!

Actually, the way JA was described on here in relationship to the Bobo's, he really is no blood relation. Connected a couple of generations ago through marriage only.

The cabin 16 incident was right after she went missing, wasn't it? Looks like they wouldn't have kept looking for her for 3 years if they had that information all along. Something just doesn't sound right. Grape jelly? I'm no forensic expert, but I don't think brains on a wall would look much like grape jelly, do you?
If you have ever field dressed an animal , say a deer for instance, the coagulated blood around the bullet wound looks like grape jelly.

As someone who has a limited experience with the law and crime scenes, I will tell you what I know....

If and when ZA, or anyone else who might eventually be arrested and tried for this crime, their Meth use,(or any other addiction) may be used in court, but not as a 'reason' for what they did.

Diminished capacity is what the term would be. Diminished Capacity is NOT a DEFENSE at trial. It is a 'mitigating factor'. A mitigating factor would be used during the sentencing phase. Diminished Capacity could very well be used to diminish a sentence such as the death penalty. It could mean that even with a conviction, ZA may not receive the death sentence, but life with/without the possibility of parole.

Also, for those who feel that ZA had the 'audacity' to plea 'not guilty: In the State of Tennessee, one cannot plea guilty to a death penalty case. They are required to have a trial.

I hope this clears it up a bit for you.

"Testimony at trial indicated that the defendant was using two grams
of “crank” a day in addition to a quarter gram of cocaine as well as substantial
amounts of other drugs to “mellow” the highs and to allow him to sleep.
10
In support of his insanity defense, the defendant offered the testimony
of Dr. Donna Segar, a physician who is board certified in toxicology, and Dr.
William D. Kenner, a psychiatrist at the St. Louis Psychoanalytic Institute. Dr. Segar
testified that regular, long term use of substantial amounts of methamphetamine
and cocaine would completely change one’s personality.9 Thought processes
become delusional and paranoid. A person under the influence of “crank” or “ice”
often speaks very rapidly and literally spits out the words through clenched teeth.
Such a person demonstrates increasingly hostile and aggressive behavior and his
judgment would be substantially impaired. She testified that two grams of
methamphetamine per day is a high dosage and that a person who used that
amount would experience hallucinations. A common hallucination, according to Dr.
Segar, is the belief that insects or bugs are crawling under the skin. Dr. Segar did
not examine the defendant but testified from her knowledge and experience.
Dr. Kenner spent several hours on two different days examining the
defendant. He extensively interviewed family members and one co-defendant. Of
significance were the facts that two members of the defendant’s family suffered
from depression and committed suicide, that the defendant’s marriage had been
troubled, and that a work injury to the defendant’s back had caused considerable
pain. Despite his injury, the defendant had continued to work long hours on the job
and at home on the family farm. Within a few months, a cousin committed suicide
and his parents divorced. After his separation from his wife, his drug use grew to
unmanageable proportions, and in October of 1994, he was fired from his job. Dr.
Kenner testified that the defendant changed from a likeable, fun-loving person who
grew angry but never held a grudge into one who was increasingly cocky and
aggressive. He became jumpy and twitchy and was unable to sleep for more than
a few minutes at a time without medication. He experienced tactile hallucinations
and would sometimes dig at himself with a knife. Dr. Kenner described a person
11
seriously addicted to methamphetamine as being very paranoid and frightened but
“spoiling for a fight.” Methamphetamine produces an increase of territorial
aggression and cocaine decreases inhibitions and impairs judgment. The doctor
concluded that at the time of the murders the defendant was suffering from an
amphetamine-induced paranoid psychosis that would have a significant impact on
his ability to conform his behavior and to self-examine his thinking and actions."
Sounds like an "insane" plea basis

I hope this clears it up a bit for you.
And you forgot to state that generally a plea deal comes about because of a bargain struck between two parties as in "we will give to you if you in turn give us something we need". Even if the case begins with asking for the death penalty, that does not mean it will stay on the table in the end.

In the Appellate Court's Ruling, which I didn't post, it said that willing drug use is not a Defense for committing a Crime.

So, if the Accused was trying to set up a Defense by having Meth smuggled in, it won't work!

Also, in the Link of the Appellate Courts decision, it recounts the Defendant's own description of thinking he was "going to die" while he was in jail and withdrawing from the Meth and Cocaine.

It's really a very interesting Read, particularly for those of us who never have , and don't use, drugs. One just has to wade through the Legal-eze and it's 20-something pages long, but well worth reading it to understand Holly's Case and why the TBI Head cited these two Cases, as well as understanding why the Drug use is such an important part of Holly's Case.

In my opinion, it answers a lot of questions that have been speculated about on this thread.

Does anyone know how long a meth high lasts? I'm sure there are variables but I'm wondering about how long it would take before you would need to take it again to maintain your high. TIA

BTW Wolfscratch, Thank You for originally finding, and posting, that Link to that particular Case. I think it's extremely informative, and pertinent, to Holly's Case, if People would only read it.

Well done!
