Breaking: Alleged Tennessee family kidnapper dead, girls found safe
Fox News ^ | May 10, 2012 | Staff+AP

Posted on 05/10/2012 6:18:33 PM PDT by jazusamo

The man suspected of kidnapping four women in a Tennessee family and killing a mother and daughter was caught Thursday evening, police say.

Adam Mayes, 35, on America’s Most Wanted Fugitive List, was caught in Mississippi, Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards confirmed.

Police say the two daughters that Mayes allegedly abducted, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, were both found alive and safe.

Mayes and his wife, Teresa, are charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Jo Ann Bain, 31, and her daughter, Adrienne, 14. Their bodies were found buried outside the Mayes' home a week after they were reported missing by Jo Ann Bain's husband, Gary.

Apparently Mayes believed the two girls were his daughters so hopefully he didn’t molest them.

What could he possibly have hoped to accomplish by killing 2 people and kidnapping 2 more? These poor girls are now scarred for life. Pray for them.

(CNN) — Two federal law enforcement sources now say that Adam Mayes — accused of murder and kidnapping in a case involving a Tennessee mother and her three daughters — was alive after suffering an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound Thursday night in Union County, Mississippi. One of those sources had previously said that Mayes was dead. A different law enforcement source had also stated that Mayes was dead. The two surviving sisters “are suffering from the experience of being out in the woods and from being kidnapped. They are suffering from dehydration and exhaustion, but appear OK,” a federal law enforcement source at the scene told CNN.

Too bad God didn't save the others he killed. Maybe next time.

Amen to that, onyx.

They were searching for him in Mississippi and it looks like they caught up with him. The coward that he is he shot himself in the head.

Prayers up for the girls.

I just noticed that Sybeck's thread was pulled. Anybody know why?

It is very unfortunate, but this is by no means always an effective defense.

Yep - WLOX on the coast talked about it this morning. My sould cries with all the parents, and other predators killing children and otherwise doing horrible things. Almost makles me think the Libs are almost right - humans don't deserve to exist. Then, I remember God's plan for us and feel hope.

The game wardens confronted Mayes. A good client of mine was there at the end. Another client is very close to the family. The girls have a horrible memory for which to get through now. The whole sordid affair centered around the twisted evil mind of one man. Evil does exist.
