Killer/Kidnapper Shoots Himself As Cops Close In

"GUNTOWN, MS — A manhunt for a fugitive accused of a double-slaying and kidnapping two children ended Thursday after the suspect apparently shot himself and died. The girls he fled with were found safe, police said.

"FBI agents and Mississippi state troopers prepare to search for kidnapping-slaying suspect Adam Mayes on Wednesday in Guntown, Miss.

"Adam Mayes, 35, was killed Thursday evening after a SWAT team acted on a tip and found him and the girls near New Albany, Miss. When they went to arrest him, he shot himself in the head, said Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall.

"The girls, Alexandra Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, were taken to a hospital for observation, Hall said.

"Mayes had been charged with first-degree murder in the April 27 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.

"Mayes' wife, Teresa, also is charged with first-degree murder in the deaths. She told investigators he killed Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain at their Whiteville, Tenn., home so he could abduct the two young sisters, according to court documents."

  1. Quite a difficult story to run, since it spans two months and two states. I'm counting it as one for Tennessee, since that's where the murders happened.
