Disney’s ABC News has announced details on the next episode of “20/20”, which is called “A Deadly Scream,” and reports on the Holly Bobo case after witness recants testimony.

In 2011, a witness last saw 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo walking into the Tennessee woods with an unknown man. Three years later, authorities found her remains miles from her home. After the largest and most expensive investigation in the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s (TBI) history, authorities ultimately charged Zach Adams, Dylan Adams and Jason Autry with the kidnapping and murder of Holly.

Although there was little physical evidence and no DNA linking any of the men to the crime, a jury convicted Zach at trial — based mainly on Jason’s testimony, in which he stated that he had been present when Zach shot and killed Holly. Dylan Adams and Jason Autry both eventually pleaded guilty to lesser charges. Earlier this year, Jason recanted his testimony, saying he made it all up, and while prosecutors stand by the conviction, lawyers for Zach are now asking a judge to grant him a new trial.

“20/20” features new reporting from “GMA3” co-anchor Eva Pilgrim and the never-before-seen video of Jason’s recantation. The special also includes an exclusive jailhouse interview with Zach, as well as interviews with original case investigators from the TBI, FBI and U.S. Marshall’s office; Zach’s mother; and forensic psychologist Katie Spirko, Psy.D., who is working with the Adams family to investigate his case.

ABC News’ “20/20” is the No. 1 award-winning primetime program anchored by David Muir and Deborah Roberts. A proven leader as a long-form newsmagazine for over 45 years, “20/20” features unforgettable, character-driven true-crime mysteries, exclusive newsmaker interviews, hard-hitting investigative reports and in-depth coverage of high-profile stories. Janice Johnston is the executive producer.

The two-hour “20/20” event will air on Friday, 31st May 2024, from 9 pm to 11 pm on ABC, and it will be available the following day on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+.   Previous episodes of “20/20” are also available to stream on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+.
