Woman believes Zach Adams tried to kidnap her before Holly Bobo


A Centerville woman who escaped a near abduction outside her home thinks the man charged with kidnapping and killing Holly Bobo tried to abduct her months before the nursing student's disappearance.

"It is really frustrating because I think if somebody would have listened to me back then maybe this would not have went so far," Sullivan said by phone.

Sullivan was leaving her home in January 2011 when she said a man, who she believes is Zachary Adams, grabbed her arm. She was carrying a lantern that fell.

"Whenever the glass hit the porch he took off running," she said.

Sullivan reported the incident to police and talked to the TBI about it at the time.

She also had a sketch made, but the sketch did not get much attention from the media at the time, according to Sullivan.

A few months later Bobo disappeared and Sullivan spoke out again about her experience because she thought they could be connected.

"I think about it every day because I have kids so thank God I am still here," she said. "I hate that because he didn't get me. He got Holly."

The TBI told News 2 it has not opened an official investigation to see if Sullivan's attempted abduction is linked to the Bobo abduction, but they have made inquiries.

Sullivan told News 2 she has been interviewed by the TBI.

Like many, Sullivan prayed Bobo would be found alive, now she is praying for her family.

"I am so sorry," she said. "My thoughts and prayers are with them 24/7."

She continued, "I couldn't imagine what they are going through."

Adams has pleaded not guilty to criminal homicide and especially aggravated kidnapping in connection with Bobo's abduction and murder.
