Poor Tennessee mother found dead, alongside her oldest daughter; their bodies were found in north Mississippi, behind the alleged kidnapper’s house. Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters had mysteriously disappeared on April 27 and police suspected Adam Mayes, a friend of Jo Ann’s husband, of kidnapping the family.
According to a police statement released on Monday, Jo Ann Bain and Adrienne Bain are confirmed dead now. The lifeless bodies of mother and 14-year-old Adrienne were discovered late last week, said the FBI by adding that the victims were positively identified. Investigators said bodies were found in the rural area close to Guntown, where the alleged kidnapper Adam Mayes had a house. The FBI strongly believe that the other two daughters of the poor dead woman are still with ‘extremely dangerous’ and ‘equipped’ Adam.
Alexandria and Kyliyah are respectively 12 and 8 years of age, and though the FBI stated the girls and alleged kidnapper are together; they did not give any reason why the agency thought so. During the new release, the FBI further conveyed that Adam Mayes is using two different names or aliases. Police report suggested that Mayes was one of Gary Bain’s (Jo Ann’s husband) longtime friends and was staying over at the family's house at the time of incident. He was there to help the family pack and load up a U-Haul as the family planned to driving across the country to Arizona.
However, when Gary woke up next morning, his wife and daughters were missing; along with Mayes.
Alarmed, Gary involved police when neither his wife could be reached on her cell nor the girls got off the school bus that day. Gary and family lived in Tennessee in the Whiteville area whereas last week, Mayes was last seen in Guntown, an area that is some 80 miles south of Whiteville. Adam is thus wanted by the FBI in connection with the disappearance of Jo and her young daughters, abducted from Tennessee and last seen in Mississippi.
Meanwhile, ever since the FBI talked to Mayes once after the incident, he allegedly fled; just before the detectives tried to contact him again, for further investigation.
