The first person to take the stand was Debbie Dorris, a house cleaner, who backed up Jason Autry's account that he showed up to see Victor Dinsmore to trade the alleged murder weapon for morphine.

Mike Frizzell, a TBI technical services agent, also took the stand and explained cell phone data that was analyzed for the case – focusing in on numbers belonging to Holly Bobo, Jason Autry and Zach Adams.

Frizzell said Zach Adams and Autry's phones pinged off of the same tower near I-40 bridge, where Autry said Bobo was shot at 10 a.m. on April 13, 2011.

The final testimony of the day came from Candace Wood, a friend of Holly's who went on a double date with she and Drew Scott. There, Wood said she saw a man "scooting dirt on the ground and looking up at me and Holly." 

On Friday, for the first time jurors saw the murder weapon that prosecutors said Zach Adams used to kill Holly Bobo.

Autry allegedly traded the gun to Dinsmore, who ironically gave the weapon to his wife to protect herself after what happened to Holly.

Dinsmore took the stand during the fifth day of testimony in the murder trial.

A shocking admission by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation also came out during testimony – that they “dropped the ball” during the search for Holly.

TBI Agent Brent Booth told jurors that Zach Adams was initially a suspect after Holly was kidnapped, but no one ever went to check his alibi.

“Did we make mistakes in this one? One I'll take with me the rest of my life,” he said. "But I got the right person.”
