A Mississippi man killed a
mother and her oldest daughter at their Whiteville home so that he and
his wife could kidnap the victim’s two younger daughters, according to
affidavits filed with murder charges in the case on Wednesday in
Hardeman County. A manhunt continued Wednesday for Adam Mayes and the missing girls.
Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain, 31, in a garage adjacent
to the Bain family’s home and also killed Adrienne Bain, 14, at the
house on April 27, the day the mother and three daughters were reported
missing, the court documents state. Mayes’ wife, Teresa Mayes, told
investigators she was present when her husband committed the murders and
she drove him, the bodies and the kidnapped girls to the couple’s home
in Union County, Miss.
Josie Tate, Adam Mayes’ mother-in-law, told
The Associated Press that Mayes thought he might be the father of the
two younger girls — Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8 — and it
caused trouble in the marriage to her daughter, Teresa, who’s jailed in the case.
“She was tired of him doting on those two little girls
that he claimed were his,” Tate said in an exclusive phone interview
with The Associated Press on Wednesday. In an earlier interview, her
daughter, Bobbi Booth, said Teresa Mayes suspected her husband was
having an affair with Jo Ann Bain.
Authorities declined to comment
on the motive or the cause of death at a news conference Wednesday in
Guntown, Miss., at which they announced Adam Christopher Mayes, 35, has
been added to the FBI’s list of 10 most wanted fugitives. The reward for
his arrest and the recovery of Alexandria and Kyliyah is now at $175,000.
His inclusion in the list came with a $100,000 federal
reward, and law enforcement agencies in Tennessee and Mississippi added $75,000.
The bodies of Jo Ann and Adrienne were found buried in a
shallow grave near Mayes’ home on Saturday, and he was charged Wednesday
with two counts of first-degree murder in Hardeman County, officials
said. A federal warrant was also issued for his arrest on charges of
unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
Aaron Ford, the special agent in charge at the FBI Memphis office, said 492 fugitives have been
on the top 10 list and that 465 of them have been apprehended or located.
He said 153 were caught as a direct result as a tip from the public.
“We are enlisting one of our most powerful weapons, you the public,” he
said. “We believe Adam Mayes could be anywhere in the United States, and
we are extremely concerned for the girls.”
Daniel McMullen, special agent in charge of the FBI for the state of Mississippi, said it
is believed that the other two younger girls are still with Mayes.
Court documents state that items belonging to the two girls were found
at a trailer Mayes had rented in another part of Union County.
“We must be cautious not to release any information that could put the
lives of these young girls in greater jeopardy,” he said. “We remain
hopeful that someone has information. Their safe return could very well
depend on information that is in the hands of someone in the public.”
He said Mayes is believed to be armed and dangerous and that he recently
cut his hair. McMullen also said it is believed Mayes may have also
changed the appearance of the girls.
Mayes was last seen in Mississippi on May 1. He also has ties to Arizona, Texas, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. He may be using the aliases of
Christopher Zachery Wylde or Paco Rodrigass. Mayes has brown hair and
blue eyes and is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds.
Alexandria has brown hair and hazel eyes and is 5 feet tall and 105 pounds.
Kyliyah has blond hair and brown eyes and is 4 feet tall and 57 pounds.
The TBI asks that anyone with information call the TBI at 1 (800) TBI-FIND.
Intense searching continued Wednesday in the surrounding woods and Guntown,
which is about 80 miles south of Whiteville.
In the area where the Mayes family lived numbered country roads wind on
for mile upon endless mile around forests of kudzu, double-wide mobile
homes and derelict autos.
Authorities said Wednesday that it is
likely Adam Mayes is somewhere in the area, but that he could also be
anywhere in the country.
Groups of law enforcement left their command post in Guntown on Wednesday
and searched the woods around nearby Highway 9.
Despite all the commotion around the countryside, the mobile home on Highway 9
North where Mayes and members of his family stayed was especially quiet.
Members of the media came by and knocked on the door, but no one answered.
Bombarded by press for the past week, several of Mayes’ neighbors have become frustrated,
saying they have no answers.
They described Adam Mayes as a neighbor who came and went and said that was
he is accused of doing to Jo Ann Bain and her daughters was as much a
shock to them as anyone.
One neighbor said she had young grandchildren the same age as the Bain girls, and that everyone is
worried about the thought that Mayes is still in the area.
Teresa Mayes, who remains in custody, also was charged Wednesday with two
counts of first-degree murder. She was arrested Monday and initially
arraigned Tuesday on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping.
Adam Mayes’ mother, Mary Mayes, 65, also is in custody on charges of
conspiracy to commit especially aggravated kidnapping. Mary Mayes is
accused of agreeing to the kidnapping but not participating in it. She
also lives at the mobile home near Guntown where the bodies were buried,
and she and Teresa Mayes, 31, told investigators they saw Adam Mayes
digging in the backyard on April 27.
Teresa Mayes’ attorney couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday.
Mary Mayes’ attorney, Terry Dycus, said his client maintains she is not
guilty. Dycus said it was too early to discuss what her defense would be.
“She agrees with the authorities (her son) is possibly
dangerous, but her main concern is that the children be returned
immediately and safely,” Dycus said.
A Hardeman County sheriff’s
deputy talked to Adam Mayes early in the investigation, and he admitted
he was the last person to see Jo Ann Bain and her daughters, according
to court documents. When investigators tried to contact him again, he
fled. Authorities have said Adam Mayes was staying with the Bain family
before their disappearance to help them pack for a planned move to Tucson, Ariz.
He was often at the Bain home. Since the manhunt
began for Mayes, people who knew him and the Bains have described him as
unusually close to the family and the girls. He was described as a
friend of Jo Ann’s husband, Gary Bain, and the children considered him an uncle.
A Facebook page, confirmed by law enforcement to be from
Adam Mayes using an alias, showed several photos of him and the Bain
girls. One picture depicts Mayes and two of the girls smiling, all
leaning next to one another cheek to cheek. That page has since been taken down.
Megan Ervin, 16, of Whiteville, said at a Tuesday
night vigil for the victims that she was a softball teammate of Adrienne
Bain last year. She said Mayes spent time at the ballpark in Bolivar,
often coming to see the Bain girls play.
“He was always here and everybody saw him,” Megan said. “He was around all these kids all the time.”
Ervin said she never spoke to Mayes.
“When I first saw him, I kind of had a bad vibe about him, so I just kind of
stayed away,” Ervin said. “But then I saw him here all the time and I
figured he’s no threat to us because he’s always here.
“Obviously, that wasn’t true.”
Mayes’ mother-in-law, who lives in Chatsworth, Ga., said she’s known him for
25 years but didn’t approve of him because his family never seemed to
stay in one place and he couldn’t hold down a job.
“Teresa’s father and I begged her: ‘Do not marry him, do not go off with him, do not live with him,” she said.
Tate described her daughter as a slow learner who spent her school life in
special education. Teresa Mayes was also incapable of having her own
children, she said.
She said she believed Mayes had threatened her daughter and perhaps his own mother.
“The feelings I have for Adam are as close to hate as I’ll ever come because
he’s destroyed not only the Bain family but he’s destroyed my family too,” Tate said.

AMBER Alerts explained

SHERMAN,TX -- Mississippi
authorities say a fugitive accused of killing a woman and her eldest
daughter, and kidnapping the woman's two other daughters is dead of a
self-inflicted gunshot wound.


Posted: 6:52 PM May 10, 2012

SHERMAN,TX -- Mississippi authorities say a fugitive accused of killing a woman and her eldest
daughter, and kidnapping the woman's two other daughters is dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Guntown's Police chief says, Adam Mayes, killed himself when a SWAT team tried to apprehend him.

The two girls he'd fled with are safe.

An Amber Alert had been issued
for the girls, saying they were in extreme danger, and it may have
helped authorities in the investigation.

"Basically an Amber Alert is an alert that is issued
for a child that is under 17 years of age or in most circumstances under
13 years of age. There has to be a unique set of circumstances to have
been met," Sergeant Bruce Dawsey, with the Sherman Police Department,
says.

One Texoma father says, it's his worst nightmare, his child going missing.

"Panic, fear, you know, did she wander off did
somebody take her? You just don't know what's going on at first,"
Patrick Guarino, says.

In order to be seen as an Amber case, the child must be in immediate danger and known to have been abducted.

Officials say don't wait, every second counts when a child is missing.

"Call 911, that's the first step," Dawsey, says.

They will take the case from there and determine
whether or not it's an abduction and if the case meets the Amber Alert
requirements.

"We've probably had more cases where we've found the
child asleep in a dog house in the back yard, underneath a pile of
towels that were just removed out of the dryer, under the bed, in a back
closet," Dawsey, says.

In order to keep your kids safe, experts advise to warn your children about the dangers.

Guarino, says, "Always know where your kids are, who
they're with, even if they're out in the front yard playing, keep your
eye on them know what they're doing at all times."

For somebody who "allegedly" loved these two little girls "as if they were his own" he sure has created an emotional quagmire that they may never recover from.
I pray that these young ladies will grow to accept his actions as that of a scheming, worthless sociopath. They may never trust again after all of this.

FBI: Girls witnessed Mayes suicide

http://www.cnn.com/2012/05/11/justice/tennessee-missing-children/index.html?hpt=hp_t1
(CNN)
-- The two young girls were on their stomachs. From where they lay,
they could see Adam Mayes, the man who took them from their home in Tennessee
two weeks prior and who now had them hiding in the Mississippi woods.

State officers approached.

Mayes was charged with the killings of the girls' mother and older sister.
The end of a days-long manhunt seemed within reach. The motive for the kidnappings might be explained.

But as the officers drew nearer, Mayes pulled out a gun and shot himself in the head. The girls watched.

New details revealed Friday by the FBI recounted the rescue of Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8.

When investigators came upon Mayes, "the girls were on their stomach face-down.
They were close enough to see what was going on when he killed himself," FBI spokesman Jason Pack said.

Afterward, the girls were tended to by two female agents who rode with them in an ambulance to a hospital.

"They were scared and relieved," Pack said. "They were hungry and thirsty.
They gave them water, and we drove them out right away."

A tip to the FBI led officers to the area.

The tip was not that someone had spotted Mayes, but that there was an old log cabin
behind a church that might be a good hiding place.

The area had been searched before by agents, but it was searched again.

There is no evidence that Mayes and the girls actually used the cabin,
but they were believed to have been in the area for a few days, Pack said.

"There was no shelter or anything. It looks like they were in the open woods," he said.
"They were dehydrated and dirty, like they were here for several days."




Officials released this security camera image of Adam Mayes in Guntown, Mississippi, on April 30.
Mayes, 35, was accused of abducting Alexandria and Kyliyah from their
Whiteville, Tennessee, home, in late April, and killing Jo Ann Bain and her eldest daughter, Adrienne, 14.

Officers with the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol and state Department of Fisheries,
Wildlife and Parks rescued Alexandria and Kyliyah, the FBI said.

Meanwhile, three additional arrests were made in connection with the case,
a law enforcement source told CNN. One person was arrested for making a false statement,
and two others for illegal possession of a firearm, the source said.

The identities of the individuals were not immediately known, but it included the
person who provided Mayes the gun he used to shoot himself, the source said.

Alexandria and Kyliyah were released overnight from Le Bonheur Children's Hospital
in Memphis, Tennessee, hospital spokeswoman Sara Burnett said.

"They were released in the middle of the night, somewhere between 2 and 5 a.m.," Burnett said.

Burnett did not know to whom the children were released.

The FBI on Wednesday put Mayes on its list of 10 most wanted fugitives.

Mayes and his wife, Teresa, had been charged with two counts of first-degree murder
and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.
He faced an additional count of making a false report, according to arrest affidavits filed in Tennessee.
Adam Mayes' mother-in-law told HLN's Nancy Grace on Thursday that he may have
believed he was the father of the two girls he was accused of abducting.

"He believes they are his children," Josie Tate told Grace.

Police said Teresa Mayes told them she was in the Bains' garage when Adam Mayes
killed Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain. According to the law enforcement source, the two were strangled.

Teresa Mayes' attorney, Shana Johnson, said Thursday that her client
last saw Mayes and the Bain girls in Mississippi on April 27.

The Mayes and Bain families are connected through Adam Mayes' sister Pamela,
who used to be married to Jo Ann's husband, Gary Bain, the lawyer said.

In affidavits, investigators said the Mayeses drove the bodies of Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain
to Union County in northern Mississippi, where they were discovered Saturday
in a shallow grave behind the house of Adam Mayes' mother in Guntown.

Bobbi Booth, Mayes' sister-in-law, told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday night that she's "overwhelmed right now."

"All I'm (thinking) about now is that the children are safe," Booth said.
"Thank you, God, for letting those children come home."

Booth described Adam Mayes as "aggressive, abusive, crazy obviously."
But Booth said she never had an inkling Mayes would be accused of kidnapping and murder.
"I never dreamed that he would do this," she said.

Yes, the POS did it right if front of them.

I'm so thankful he didn't murder them. They will be forever emotionally scarred. Now that they are free they will have to deal with the deaths of their mother and sister.

Heartbreaking. But thank God they are alive.

Missing girls home with father

GUNTOWN, MISS. — Hope was fading that two young
sisters abducted from their Tennessee home would be found alive two
weeks after they vanished: Their kidnapper had already killed their
mother and sister, and he was armed with a rifle, sawed-off shotgun and
pistol as officers closed in.
Adam Mayes
could have killed them days ago, could have left them in the woods as he
fled for another hideout, could have shot them in desperation as he was
surrounded by officers. Yet 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old
Kyliyah Bain went home to their father Friday alive, with no apparent
injuries other than being tired, scared and itchy from poison ivy.
Beverly
Goodman, the aunt of the slain mother, Jo Ann Bain, said she was
relieved the girls were home but still saddened by the killings of Bain
and Bain's 14-year-old daughter Adrienne.
"He's been
missing for so long. How do you hide out from 350 million people?"
Goodman said. "I thought they were going to find them dead the girls and
him so I am very, very relieved that those girls are home and they're
not dead, like I figured they were gonna be."
At one point,
Mayes had claimed to be the girls' father. That may be why he spared
them. It also may be that while he wanted to escape prosecution, he
didn't believe the girls were better off dead. And he was close to the
family, described as an uncle-like figure who smiled cheek-to-cheek with
the girls in Facebook photos.
"He
probably developed an attachment to them, and even the most vicious of
killers can separate the world into people they care about, people they
detest and people they don't care about," said James Alan Fox, a
criminologist at Northeastern University.
Authorities said
Mayes, 35, killed Jo Ann Bain and 14-year-old Adrienne on April 27 in
Whiteville, Tenn. Mayes' wife, Teresa Mayes, is charged with murder in
the killings. She told investigators she saw her husband kill the mother
and oldest girl, then drove him, the younger children and the bodies to
Mississippi, according to court documents. His mother, Mary Mayes, also
is charged in the kidnapping but maintains she is not guilty.

Dirty, dehydrated and starving, itching all over with poison ivy and
bug bites, 12-year-old Alexandra Bain and her 8-year-old sister Kyliyah
Bain lay face-down in a swath of northern Mississippi woods -- their
kidnapper by their side.
Thirteen days earlier,
authorities say the girls were abducted from their Whiteville,
Tennessee, home by Adam Mayes after he strangled their mother and
14-year-old sister.

And for the last three days, Alexandria and Kyliyah had nothing to eat or drink.

Their weary, young bodies
were prone, right along with Mayes, about dusk Thursday near a logging
road in an area populated with deer and an occasional hunter, but little
else.
Then a state officer --
one of scores of law enforcement agents who had been working round the
clock to find Mayes and the Bain sisters -- yelled, "Get your hands up."
One girl picked her head
up, soon followed by the other. Mayes himself then began to raise his
head, all the while holding a 9 mm pistol.

"I hollered 'Gun!' three
times to let my team know that there was a weapon involved," recalled
Master Sgt. Steve Crawford, head of the Mississippi Highway Patrol's
special operations unit.

"Then he raised to his knees, never brandished a gun toward any of us or the children, and at that time took his own life."

That single gunshot wound
to the head ended a manhunt that spanned several states and involved
about 24 law enforcement agencies, said FBI special agent in charge
Daniel McMullen. It also captivated the nation, rocketing Mayes from
obscurity to a spot on the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list practically
overnight.

And most of all, it tore apart a family -- leaving two young girls motherless, but alive.

It is "just a very, very
close-knit, loving family. And it's a family that didn't deserve this,"
Rick Foster told HLN's "Nancy Grace" show Thursday, hours after talking
to his relieved good friend Gary Bain, who had just learned his two
daughters were alive.

For all the new details
provided by federal and state officials at a press conference Friday in
Jackson, Mississippi, many questions remained. Chief among them -- and
one that may never be fully answered, with Mayes dead -- is why he did
what he did.

The two people who may
know best, Alexandria and Kyliyah, ideally can "shed some light"
whenever they "get to where they can speak, when they calm down," said
state Department of Public Safety Albert Santa Cruz.

But for now, authorities say they are just thankful that the girls are alive.

The sisters "didn't cry"
after Mayes shot himself "within inches" of them, seemingly relieved
the worst of their ordeal was over Thursday night, said Crawford. After
getting a drink of water, they were whisked off by ambulance with two
female agents, said FBI spokesman Jason Pack.

Then, some time between 2
and 5 a.m. Friday, they were released from Le Bonheur Children's
Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, hospital spokeswoman Sara Burnett said.

"A lot of prayers were
answered when we found these two young ladies to be safe," said Lt. Lee
Ellington, a state Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Parks officer
who was on site when Mayes committed suicide and the girls were rescued.

"At the end of the day, the two young ladies returned home to their father safely, as did all officers."

The saga began April 27,
when Jo Ann Bain's husband, Gary, called police to report that his wife
and three daughters were missing from their Tennessee home.

The Bain and Mayes
families are connected through Gary and his former wife, Pamela, who is
Adam Mayes' sister, explained Shana Johnson, a lawyer for Adam Mayes'
mother-in-law, Josie Tate.

Tate has said that Adam Mayes believed the two girls he allegedly abducted were his children.

But Brenda Foster firmly
denied to HLN that Jo Ann Bain, her close friend of 26 years who was
back in school pursuing a degree in elementary education, was ever
"intimate" with Mayes. Her husband, Rick Foster, explained how the Bains
had embraced and trusted Mayes -- with their daughters calling him
"uncle" and Gary giving him odd jobs and treating him like "a son."

Even then, authorities say, Mayes violently turned on the family.

Police said that his
wife, Teresa Mayes, told police she was in the Bains' garage when her
husband killed Jo Ann Bain and her eldest daughter, Adrienne Bain.
According to a law enforcement source, the two were strangled.

Johnson, Teresa Mayes' attorney, said Thursday that her client last saw Mayes and the Bain girls in Mississippi on April 27.

Along with her late
husband, Teresa Mayes was charged with two counts of first-degree murder
and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping. He had faced an
additional count of making a false report, according to arrest
affidavits filed in Tennessee.

"I don't want to believe
that. I want to believe that she was forced to do that in some way,"
Teresa's sister, Bobbi Booth, told CNN on Friday.

Tate calls her daughter Teresa "as much a victim of Adam Mayes as the Bain family."

"Teresa was scared of
Adam. If she didn't do just as Adam told her to do, she would suffer the
results," the mother told HLN on Friday.

In affidavits,
investigators said the Mayeses drove the bodies of Jo Ann and Adrienne
Bain to Union County in northern Mississippi, where they were discovered
Saturday in a shallow grave behind the house of Adam Mayes' mother in
Guntown.

It was then that an Amber Alert was issued, seeking the public's help in tracking down the girls and Adam Mayes.

The FBI initially noted
Mayes had connections to Arizona, Texas, Florida and the Carolinas.
Still, they said their main focus remained in Mississippi -- even after
the number of tips spiked, from all over the country, after Mayes'
inclusion on the FBI's "most wanted" list earlier this week.

"He had family there, he
had friends there, and that area was the last area where (Mayes) was
seen," said FBI special agent McMullen, noting a witness reported seeing
the suspect there on May 1. "So that's what kept us there; that's what
kept the pressure up on that area, and I think that was critical to this
ending."

By Thursday, the reward
for information leading to Mayes' arrest stood at $175,000. The tip that
ultimately led authorities to him and the girls was not that anyone
spotted them, but that an old log cabin behind a church in Alpine,
Mississippi, might be a good hiding place.

It is a "very good possibility" that tipster may take home that reward, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said.

Adam Mayes' mother, Mary Frances Mayes, also has been charged with conspiracy to commit especially aggravated kidnapping.

Three others have been
arrested in connection with the case, a law enforcement source told CNN
-- including one for making a false statement and two others for illegal
possession of a firearm. One of these is the person who provided Mayes
with the gun he used to shoot himself, the source said.

While there was some
closure Thursday night, officials have stressed that the investigation
is ongoing. And that means authorities may try to hold more people
accountable for what happened to the Bain family.

"That effort goes on, and additional arrests are possible," Bryant said.

The street to the Bain family home is
being guarded by sheriff's deputies in an effort to offer Alexandria and
Kyliyah Bain support and protection as they recover from a situation
that led to death of their mother, sister, and accused kidnapper.The two girls were missing for two weeks
after Adam Mayes allegedly kidnapped them, their mother, Jo Ann, and
sister, Adrienne, on April 27.

The situation ended Thursday night when Adam
Mayes shot himself in the head as Mississippi wildlife resource officers
approached him in the woods near Alpine, Mississippi.

The girls were taken to Le Bonheur Children's
Hospital to be treated for dehydration, exposure, and poison ivy. They
were released early Friday morning and are now recovering at home.

The Bain family spokesperson tells Action News 5 the girls are doing well and they got a good night's sleep.

The spokesperson described this two-week long situation as "a tragedy, a total nightmare tragedy."

In a news conference today, the Mississippi wildlife resource officers spoke about what happened when they found the girls.

"I began giving commands. Then the little
girl picked her head up, the other little girl picked her head up. Mr.
Mayes began to raise his head. He had a weapon in his hand and I
hollered 'Gun' three times to let my team know there was a weapon
involved," said Lieutenant Lee Ellington. "We ordered Mr. Mayes to drop
the weapon. Mr. Mayes raised up to his knees and brought the gun not to
us or the children and at that time he took his life."

CNN reported Friday morning that three more people are under arrest in the investigation of the kidnappings.

The identities of those people have not yet
been revealed. One person was charged with making false statements. The
other two are charged with illegal possession of a firearm.

"If we can determine that there was anyone
either in Tennessee or Mississippi who assisted Adam Mayes while he was
on the run we are going to try to make sure they are arrested and
prosecuted for their involvement," said Tennessee Bureau of
Investigation Director Mark Gwyn.

Investigators will not confirm whether the
Bain sisters are aware that their mother, Jo Ann, and older sister,
Adrienne, were murdered.

Their autopsy reports are sealed under a
court order by request of the FBI and the Hardeman County District
Attorney Mike Dunavant.

Dunavant said the reports are sealed due to
the pending homicide charges against Mayes' wife Teresa, who said she
witnessed her husband commit the murders and helped him hide the bodies.


District Attorney General Mike Dunavant tells
Action News 5 that even though their primary suspect is dead, they plan
to move forward with prosecution in the case.

"We still intend to move forward with the
evidence we have," Dunavant said over the phone. "In addition to anyone
else who is found to have participated in these homicides and this
kidnapping. We'll move forward with that evidence and we want to thank
and commend the good work of all of these agencies."

Dunavant said the girls will be key witnesses in the case.

"Our focus is that they receive specialized
care and treatment they need at this time," he told WMC-TV. "Later on,
they will be considered material witnesses in this case, they are
victims and will be treated with ultimate care, dignity and respect."

Adam Mayes' wife, Teresa, is charged with first degree murder and kidnapping for her role in the crimes.

Teresa's sister, Bobbi Booth, spoke with Action News 5 on the phone after Mayes died.

"It's frustrating that Adam took the simple way out," said Booth. She has not spoken to her sister since the arrest.

Booth said that her sister graduated with a
special education degree and was easily manipulated by Mayes. She agrees
that her sister should be punished for her role in the kidnapping, but
hopes the courts consider the entire scenario.

Mayes' mother, Mary Frances, is also charged in connection to the kidnapping.

The girls were found with Mayes just miles from the home where their mother and sister's bodies were found.

Officers say they checked the area around the
church previously, which leads them to believe Mayes had been on the
run since he and the family went missing two weeks ago.

Mayes was added to the FBI's Most Wanted list
Wednesday for the murder of Jo Ann Bain, and her 14-year-old daughter,
Adrienne. The website changed his status to deceased shortly after he
was captured.

Bain and her three daughters went missing on
April 27 from their Hardeman County home. On Saturday, May 5, an AMBER
Alert was issued for the three girls.

Three days after the family disappeared,
Mayes was captured on a Guntown, MS, store surveillance camera. That
was the last time Mayes was seen until his capture.

On May 5, police informed media they found
two bodies in the backyard of Mayes' Alpine home. The bodies were later
confirmed to be those of Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain.

Teresa Mayes was arrested and is charged with
two counts of 1st degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated
kidnapping.

His mother, Mary Frances, is charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated kidnapping.

In interviews with detectives, Teresa Mayes
revealed that her husband killed Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain as part of a
plan to kidnap the younger girls. She told investigators that she saw
Mayes kill Jo Ann in a garage near their home.

Rumors are circulating about why Mayes would kidnap the two young girls. The FBI has yet to release a motive for the crimes.

A fund has been set up to assist the Bain
family. Donations can be made at any of the seven Farmers and Merchants
Bank branches in Tennessee.

Gary Bain Makes Statement to Public as Wife and Daughter are Memorialized

Posted on: 4:15 pm, May 18, 2012, by Adam Hammond,
updated on: 06:05pm, May 18, 2012

(Somerville, TN) The murders and kidnapping of the Bain family in Whiteville are still devastating the community.

Today family and friends had a chance to say goodbye.

Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain were memorialized at a private funeral in Somerville Friday.

Meanwhile, Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain are still being interviewed by the FBI about what happened when they were kidnapped and held captive in the woods by Adam Mayes.

Gary Bain said he is destroyed by the senseless crimes and is grieving the death of his wife Jo Ann and daughter Adrienne.

But he says there is a silver lining in that dark cloud, because his youngest girls are now safe with him after Mayes kidnapped them from his home.

For the first time Gary Bain is speaking to the public through a family spokesperson.

“Mr. Bain wishes to thank all law enforcement, anyone who had anything to do with it. The TBI, FBI and all the sheriff’s departments,” said family spokesperson David Livingston.

“He certainly wants to thank the public at large because we feel like the public interest cause a great deal of help for everyone to recover these children,” said Livingston.

It was a tip from the public that helped authorities find Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain after they were kidnapped by Mayes.

“The girls are doing exceptionally well given the circumstances. Obviously anyone would know that they’re grieving. That’s a natural process and it runs its ups and downs,” said Livingston.

Adam Mayes was a close family friend and even spent the night with the Bain family the night before the murders.

Early the next morning, he and Gary Bain were supposed to go to Arizona together in light of their upcoming move.

“Not in a million years was there anything ever considered that this man had any kind of dark side like this,” said Mayes.

Mayes used to refer to the girls as his own.

“Do we really know what Adam Mayes though? That’s almost impossible, but when confronted he would admit they were not his children,” said Livingston.

Livingston says there is no way those children were his and Gary and Jo Ann Bain had a “strong marriage and she was not that type of lady.”

The Mississippi state crime lab is trying to figure out what to do with
the body of Adam Mayes, the man who allegedly murdered a mother and
daughter and kidnapped the woman's two other daughters before shooting
himself.

The lab has had Mayes' body since mid-May, and doesn't
know what to do with it. Mayes' family won't accept his body. If no
one takes the body after six months, it has to be returned to Union
County, where he died.

According to Mississippi state law, if
there are any living relatives, it is the family's responsibility to
take care of the body. But Mayes' wife and mother are behind bars in
connection to the two murders and kidnappings. Mayes' brother refuses
to accept the body.

Police believe Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain and
her daughter, Adrienne Bain, 14, in their home in Whiteville, Tenn., on
April 27, and then fled with Bain's two other daughters, Alexandra, 12,
and her sister Kyliyah, 8.

The two girls were rescued after a
nearly two-week ordeal. On May 10, Mississippi state highway troopers
spotted a small blonde child peeking over a ridge, police said, which
led to the girls' rescue.

Moments later, Mayes shot himself as he
knelt in the grass next to the children, in what his mother-in-law
called the "coward's way out."

Mayes is suspected of killing the
girls' sister and mother in order to kidnap the younger girls, whom he
thought were his children, relatives have said. The girls had been
living with Jo Ann and her husband, Gary Bain, and the family was
planning to move to Arizona at the end of the school year.

When Adam Mayes went on the run with the girls, he was put on the FBI's Top 10 Most Wanted List.

His
wife Teresa Mayes is charged with murder and especially aggravated
kidnapping for her role in assisting Mayes. She is being held in a
Tennessee jail.

During the investigation, police also arrested Mayes' mother, Mary Mayes, in connection with the murder and kidnapping.

The body of suspected killer Adam Mayes is now at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and it will be used for science.
The body was delivered to the university's body farm overnight.

Investigators say Adam Mayes killed Jo Ann
and Adrienne Bain as part of his plan to kidnap Alexandria and Kyliyah
Bain. He held them captive for two weeks.

Mayes shot and killed himself in the woods in Union County, Mississippi.

His family would not claim his body.

"It could've come back onto my county if no one would claim him," said Union County Coroner Mark Golding.

From her jail cell, Mayes' wife, Teresa, signed the paperwork to send the body to UT Knoxville's Forensic Anthropology Center.

While the body farm declined to comment, the former Shelby County medical examiner offered insight as to what could come next.

"From the forensic world, nothing is unworthy
of study," said O.C. Smith. "Nothing is off limits as far as what type
of body and what type of environment it can be studied in and they have a
tremendous amount of graduate students working on these issues."

Regardless of how it is used on the farm,
Mayes' body will provide scientists with a better understanding of death
and decomposition.

"You have to sit there, you have to look at
it and take it apart and watch it happen. That's why although this was a
very tragic incident, this is probably the best use for this person's
body to serve mankind," said Smith.

After taking away so much, Mayes will rot on the farm for science.

"He can go on for research and education and
maybe a bad thing, after a bad thing has happened maybe something good
can come of it," said Union County Coroner Mark Golding.

Golding says the body farm was full but it agreed to accept the body anyway.

FBI: Reward Paid In Mayes Case

Posted: Jul 30, 2012 1:03 PM CDT
Updated: Jul 30, 2012 1:03 PM CDT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The FBI said it paid reward money to more than one person who gave authorities information that helped them find a fugitive accused of killing a mother and her daughter and kidnapping the woman's two younger girls.

The FBI did not disclose Monday how many people received the reward money or how much was paid out for information that led authorities to find Adam Mayes in the woods of north Mississippi on May 10.

Mayes had been charged with killing Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter Adrienne in their Whiteville, Tennessee, home on April 27. Mayes was also charged with kidnapping Bain's two other daughters, 8-year-old Kyliyah and 12-year-old Alexandria and taking them to Guntown, Mississippi.

Mayes fatally shot himself when approached by officers. The girls were rescued safely.

ONLY ON 5: Mayes women open up about Bain murders, kidnappings

Posted: Nov 15, 2013 1:32 PM CST
Updated: Nov 19, 2013 4:19 AM CST
By Justin Hanson

NASHVILLE, TN -  (WMC-TV) - There are two sides to every story, and in a chilling story that gripped the Mid-South last year ... even more than that.

For the first time, Teresa and Mary Mayes, wife and mother of a man who murdered and kidnapped members of a Mid-South family, tell their side of a tragic story from prison.

Nineteen months ago a family friend kidnapped two Mid-South girls after he murdered their mother and sister. That family friend was Adam Mayes. The kidnapping of Alexandria and Kyliah Bain from their home in Whiteville led to a manhunt across Tennessee and Mississippi.

The Bain family was planning to move to Arizona, and Adam Mayes was determined to stop them. Part of his plan included recruiting his own mother and wife to help.

"How can you put two children in a car with their mother and sister dead in the back of it?" said Mary Mayes, Adam's mother. "I know it sounds funny to be afraid of your son, but I was afraid of him."

Teresa Mayes was Adam Mayes' wife.

"Living with Adam, yeah, it was like living in hell," said Teresa.

Action News 5's Justin Hanson sat down with both women inside the Tennessee Prison for Women in Nashville. He asked them to explain why they went along with such a heinous plan.

"We left the house, it was like April 25, early in the morning. He said, 'We're going to Whiteville, no questions asked. If you start asking questions, I'm going to kill you,' " explained Teresa.

Click here to see the uncut interview with Mary Mayes, click here to read the transcript.


Teresa Mayes says she did not know her husband planned to kill Jo Ann Bain and her daughter, Adrienne, but she did know he intended to kidnap two of Bain's daughters.

"He was like, 'We're gonna kidnap them before they get on the school bus because Gary and Jo Ann don't watch them get on the bus,'" Teresa recalled.

She went on to explain that she hid under a blanket in Mayes' truck for almost two days while he visited the Bain family. She says she was ordered to stay out of sight by her husband and that the family never knew she was on their property.

"I kinda wiggled a little bit and he comes to the Durago. He says, 'I told you to be still.' I said, 'My nose is bleeding. I've done got way too hot in this vehicle.' [He says], 'Oh, it's gonna be taken care of here in a little bit,'" said Teresa.

Teresa says between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on April 27, Adam came to the truck with 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah Bain.

He told Teresa to drive off the property and keep the sisters hidden. Teresa says she returned to the property with the girls less than two hours later.

"He tells me to come in the shop. I go in the shop and there's two tarps laying on the shop floor," said Teresa.

Inside the tarps were the bodies of Jo Ann and Adrienne.

"He tells me, 'You're gonna help me put these in the Durango.' I'm like, 'No, I'm not. I'm not touching nothing. I told you I don't want no involvement in none of this.' He was like, 'If you don't do it, I'm gonna kill you,' " she said.

Teresa says she did not know what was inside the tarps as Adam placed them in the seat in front of the two sisters. She says she along with the girls never saw the bodies.

"At that time, I didn't know what it was until we get to Mississippi and he confesses to me that was Jo Ann and Adrienne," said Teresa. "He was like, 'I killed Jo Ann' and he told me how he killed her. He said he hit her in the head with a board and then he strangled her. He was like I killed Adrienne and when he said Adrienne, I come unglued. I couldn't even hear how he did it. I didn't want to know how he did it."

Teresa says Adam got into Jo Ann's SUV and drove it to a nearby field, where Teresa picked him up and began the trip to Adam's parents Mary and Johnny Mayes' home in Alpine, Mississippi.

For two hours only a row of seats separated the Bain girls from their dead mother and sister.

"I'm sitting there the whole time going, 'Y'all can uncover. Get up in there in the seat ... Kyliyah was [scared] Alex wasn't. Kylie starts crying I want mamma, I want Adrienne," said Teresa.

Teresa said they arrived at Adam's parent's home in Guntown, Mississippi around 6 a.m. With the girls still hiding under blankets, Adam dug a grave in the backyard and buried Joann and Adrienne.

"I didn't know they were in there. I didn't know they were in the ground. I'd walked back and forth over that thing feeding our animals out there," said Mary Mayes.

Adam moved Alexandria and Kyliyah to a trailer near Pontotoc, Mississippi, about 35 miles from his parent's home.

Gary Bain immediately reported his family missing and Hardeman County Sheriff John Doolen questioned Adam Mayes on April 29. Mary Mayes says Adam was armed and ready to fight.

"He carried that 9 millimeter gun around, even when Doolen was down there questioning him and telling him he was the last person to see everybody, he had that 9 millimeter tucked in the back of his pants," said Mary.

Mary says Adam was violent, even as a child. She said he would hit her and his father, Johnny, and often lock them in the bathroom. That is why she says she kept quiet and did what she was told when Adam asked her to pick up the Bain sisters from his trailer 30 miles away.

"He came to the house and said, 'Go get them.' He put his old toolbox on his little red truck and he put a blanket in there and I couldn't figure out why but he says, 'You go get them. Don't stop nowhere between here and there and don't make no phone calls,'" Mary explained. "I went over there and knocked on the door and they came to the door. There wasn't no water, no electricity and I said, 'Adam says y'all know what to do,' and they say, ‘ Yes ma'am.' They got in the toolbox and let the lid down. And I didn't stop between where they were at. They said, 'Why didn't you take them to police?' I didn't now Johnny wasn't gonna be dead when I got to the house."

Mary said she then took the girls to meet Adam in a wooded area near a church.

"I pulled over, he says, 'Don't get out.' He tapped on the toolbox and Alex and Kyliyah jumped out and took off," said Mary.

Investigators issued a warrant for Adam's arrest on May 2, six days after the Bain girls disappeared.

On May 5, Mary Mayes led authorities to the spot where she had seen Adam digging the week before.

"Whenever the FBI said asked if he'd done anything unusual, I went out there and showed them where he had dug," said Mary.

Teresa said she warned authorities that Adam would not go down without a fight.

"Y'all don't know him like I do. He will come back and kill us. I guarantee you he's sitting in them woods now watching y'all," Mary said she told authorities.

It was in those woods where wildlife agents surrounded Adam Mayes and the Bain sisters on May 10. The manhunt ended when Mayes shot himself in the head.

"I had a girl there last night. She asked me, she said, 'Didn't your husband shoot himself?' She was like, 'I'm so sorry.' I'm like, 'Please don't, please don't be sorry.' I feel sorry that the girls lost their momma and one of their sisters," Teresa said through tears. "If I could go back and change everything that happened, would I? Yes."

Doctors at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital treated the Bain sisters for dehydration, cuts, bruises and poison ivy when they were found. They are now back in Whiteville with their father Gary.

Teresa Mayes pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping. Mary Mayes also pleaded guilty to two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.

"I know he did wrong, and I don't know what brought it on, but he's still my son and I can't ... people say how can you do that? I say you're not a mother are you?" said Mary Mayes.

Based on good behavior, Teresa Mayes could be eligible for parole after serving almost 30 of her 35 year sentence. Mary could be eligible after serving 11 and a half of her 13 and a half year sentence.
