Carport Involved in a Murder Investigation

Most of the time we write about the ability to use metal shelters, carports, and garages for a wide variety of uses. Workshops, guest houses, tiny homes, small businesses, etc. all find a welcome home in a metal shelter. Steel structures are the future. However, we never anticipate whenever carports make national news.

Recently blood was found in a carport that matched the DNA of a Nursing student from Tennessee. Her name was Holly BoBo, and the investigation started many years ago when she went missing in 2011. The main suspect was Zachary Adam’s. During Adams’ trial he plead not guilty to “kidnapping, raping, and killing Holly Bobo.”

The Republic, which is a local newspaper in Indiana reported that “Her remains were found 3 1/2 years latter in woods not far from her home in Decatur County, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) southwest of Nashville.” It’s an extremely unfortunate event, but somehow years later the evidence within the carport and Bobo’s brother was able to move the case forward before it became entirely cold. “Bob’s brother testified Monday that he saw his sister and a man in the carport before they walked together into woods next to the family’s home.”

A dirty knife in the rain lies on the pavement with light reflecting in the puddles.

While Justice Be Served in the Country Music Capital?

Adam’s faces the death penalty if convicted, and the FBI hopes to use this evidence to push forward in the case. In the United States, it may not often seem like it but every suspect is still innocent until proven guilty. If Adam’s isn’t the murderer, the case will continue and hopefully the family will receive some closure in time.

Although it wasn’t our carport, we’re glad that a carport was capable of protecting evidence for so long. If it wasn’t proof enough of the ability of a carport to protect your property, any small amount of rain would’ve washed away the blood and possibly condemned the murder to a cold case for all time.

Our thoughts and compassion go out to the family, and we hope that her murderer is taken to justice as soon as possible. It’s terrible that this world exists in such a manner that these people will prey upon the weak. Unfortunately though, it’s the reality that we live in.
