Kidnapped Girls Saw Fugitive Adam Mayes’ Suicide

Shoshanna Utchenik

Details continue to roll in about the kidnapping-murder-suicide of Adam Mayes, who had just been placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List.

Mayes in April had abducted a mother and her three daughters. The mother, Jo Ann Bain and the eldest daughter were found dead.

The FBI says that the two surviving daughters saw their kidnapper shoot himself as authorities approached, according to CNN.

FBI spokesperson Jason Pack said the 8 and 12 year-old sisters were found with their captor out in the open.

“There was no shelter or anything.” Pack told CNN. “They were dehydrated and dirty, like they were here for several days…They gave them water and we drove them out right away.”

The girls were released back to their grateful father from Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, Friday.

There are several players in this case, including Mayes’ wife Teresa, who family characterizes as another fearful victim of Mayes’ abuse. Teresa Mayes was charged along with Adam Mayes on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.

Suspected Killer Fills Last Vacancy on FBI’s Most Wanted List

By Allan Lengel

After a great deal of deliberation, the FBI has filled the final vacancy in its Ten Most Wanted fugitive list, the agency announced Wednesday,

Adam Christopher Mayes, wanted in connection with the kidnapping last month of a mother, Jo Ann Bain, 31, and her three daughters in Tennessee, has been added to the list, replacing Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger, who was captured last year in California along with his girlfriend.

Authorities said bodies of two of the kidnap victims — the mother and the oldest daughter Adrienne, 14, —  were found last week buried behind a mobile home where the Mayes family lived in Guntown, Miss.

The two other daughter, 8 and 12, are still missing.

“We believe Mayes could be anywhere in the United States, and we are extremely concerned for the safety of the girls,” said Aaron Ford, special agent in charge of the FBI Memphis office. “Anyone who has any information about this case, of if you’ve seen Mayes or the girls, please contact your nearest FBI office or the local police immediately.”
