According to the Union County Sheriff’s Department, the search for kidnapper Adam Mayes, 35, came to an end on Highway 183 in Alpine, MS.

As officers closed in on Mayes and his two remaining captives, the kidnapper turned his gun on himself.  He was found with one self inflicted gunshot wound to his head.  He was taken to Baptist Hospital in Alpine, were he reportedly died from his wounds.

Mayes’ captives, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kylilah Bain, 8, were taken to the hospital to be checked out.

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

Mayes’ wife, Teresa, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.  Adam Mayes’ mother, Mary Frances Mayes, has been charged with four counts of conspiracy to commit especially aggravated kidnapping.  The two women were arrested Monday morning.

Mayes faced two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping.

    I’m glad the 2 girls were found alive. What would possess you to commit such a crime? Cowards sometimes kill themselves to avoid punishment or to die hos own way.

  2. So glad that knuckle dragging oxygen thief killed himself. I wouldn’t want our tax dollars feeding him or paying his medical expenses for the rest of his stinking life! So thankful those children are alive. God bless them!

    The whole crime spree makes absolutely no sense. Mayes did no harm to the Bain girls, thank you God for bringing them home safe! My prayers goes out to the Bains and Mayes families and friends. RIP Jo Ann and Adrienne.

    This is the saddest thing ever! Those poor little girls are going to have to live with this nightmare for the rest of their lives. I can’t imagine the pain of losing a mother/sister that way.
