SAVANNAH, Tenn. - As the third day of the Holly Bobo trial got underway in Hardin County, jurors were shown evidence like personal items that were found with her remains, including her skull which showed signs of a single gunshot.
The medical examiner said the trajectory of the bullet was downward from the back, right side of the head to the front, left side, fracturing her left cheek bone where it exited her skull.
He added, based on the evidence, it appeared Holly was shot in the back of the head, likely from someone above her. He said it's probable she was shot with a .32 caliber gun.
The medical examiner said the shot would have been fatal, and he believed it could be the cause of death; however, when asked by the defense if the shot could have happened after Holly had died, he said it could.
Prosecutor: Would this be a fatal wound?
Doctor: yes it would be #hollybobo
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation agent Laura Hodge showed the jury several items that were located when Bobo’s skull was found. These items included a purse, a smaller purse, her wallet with the license still inside, multiple teeth, and rib bones.
