NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Did Holly Bobo's killer leave a clue on Facebook?

NewsChannel 5 Investigates has uncovered what could be explosive new evidence.

That evidence comes from accused killer Zachary Adams' own Facebook page -- and the timing could be especially critical.

Through a source, we were able to obtain access to Zach Adams' Facebook page -- and there we discovered a post apparently made within minutes of Holly's disappearance.

Bobo disappeared from her Decatur County home on April 13, 2011. Her brother told investigators he last saw his sister being pulled into the woods by a man dressed in camouflage.

That was about 7:30 in the morning.

Which makes the post on accused killer Zachary Adams' Facebook page so troubling.

His words: "You never was you stupid whore."

Even more disturbing, the date and time of the post: April 13th, 7:39 a.m.

That's within minutes of Holly Bobo's disappearance.

Was it a reference to the 20-year-old nursing student?

Adams' friends on Facebook asked whom he was talking about, but he never responded.

His on-and-off girlfriend at the time replied, "I'm sure it's me."

Still, one of the leads that investigators have followed in the Bobo case was that the killer might be someone who had sought Holly's attention and had been rejected.

In addition, while the community spent almost three years searching for Holly, Adams posted this picture back in December, showing himself dressed in camouflage.

His caption: "Who am I looking for?"

A friend replied, "Holly Bobo?"

The now-accused killer never responded.

Now, with investigators saying Zachary Adams is Holly's killer, he could end up being confronted in court with his own disturbing words.

It's likely that investigators will be looking at Adams' Facebook page, if they haven't already. They'll also want to make sure that the date and time showing up on Facebook are correct, and they'll want to find out where Adams was when he made that post.

As to why Adams would post something like that on Facebook if he really is the killer, neighbors told NewsChannel 5 that Adams had a serious drug problem -- mainly, involving meth.

So it's likely whatever he was thinking, he wasn't thinking clearly.
