Four Neighbors of Adam Mayes Arrested in Connection With the Kidnapping of Alexandria Bain & Kyliyah Bain and Murder of Jo Ann Bain & daughter Adrienne Bain
More arrests …
There have been more arrests in the bizarre kidnapping and murder case that ended in suspect Adam Mayes killed himself when authorities and SWAT closed in on his location in the Mississippi woods. Thankfully, Alexandria Bain and Kyliyah Bain were found safe and unharmed.
Four of Adam Mayes’ neighbors have been arrested in connection with the abduction and murder case of mother Jo Ann Bain and her daughters, Alexandria Bain, Kyliyah Bain and Adrienne Bain. Adam Mayes abducted Jo Ann Bain and her daughters April 27, 2012, the last time that they were reportedly seen. It is hard to imagine that any one would have helped this sicko in his abduction and murderous acts before, during or after; however, obviously that was the case.
Tennesse Bureau of Investigation/Handout
Police did not say how the four additional people arrested – including a husband and wife and the adult son of the husband – were linked to the Mayes case. The couple were arrested for possessing a weapon and the son had been wanted previously by Mississippi authorities.
In what can be described as a bizarre attempt to remedy a relationship gone wrong when Mayes learned that the Bain’s were moving back to Arizona. According to court affidavits, Mayes intended to kidnap the two youngest daughters, Alexandria Bain and Kyliyah Bain, and kill the mother, Jo Ann Bain, and her oldest daughter Adrienne. Sadly, that is exactly how it happened.
As it turns out Adam Mayes had been investigated previously for sexual abuse.Previously Mayes was babysitting a 7 year old girl when the parents walked in the bathroom and found Mayes and the seven year old naked as he was shaving her legs. Um … ICK!!! More ICK … it was also reported that a stash of child pornography was found in his bedroom. Of course, nothing was done.
In the police report, obtained by NBC station WMC-TV of Memphis, Tenn., someone reported that Mayes was babysitting a 7-year-old girl when a family member walked in on them in the bathroom. The report said that Mayes and the young girl were naked and that he was shaving her legs.
The complainant also said Mayes had a stash of child pornography in his bedroom. A U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigation found no evidence that Mayes had received child pornography in the mail, and the allegation was ultimately declared unfounded, WMC reported.
Why would any one have allowed their little girls to be any where around this perv after such an incident?

Two Tennessee girls missing since their mother and sister were murdered were rescued today in Mississippi, where their suspected abductor apparently shot himself to death, an FBI official said.

Suspect Adam Mayes Added to FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List … Charged with Murder of Jo Ann Bain & Adrienne Bain … 12 year old Alexandria Bain & 8 Year Old Kyliyah Bain Still Missing
Charges escalate from “especially aggravated kidnapping” to “first degree murder” …
Suspect Adam Christopher Mayes, wanted in the disappearance and kidnapping of 12 year old Alexandria Bain and her 8 year old Kyliyah Bain has been added to the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitive List. The FBI has also added $100,000 to the reward fund offered for a break in the case. Adam Hayes has also just been charged with two counts of first degree murder in the death of Tennessee mom Jo Ann Bain and her 14 year old daughter Adrienne Bain. Adam’s wife, Teresa Mayes has also been charged with two counts of first degree murder. Previously, Teresa Mayes had been charged with especially aggravated kidnapping.
In an affidavit, Teresa Mayes said she was there when Adam Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain in a garage next to their home and that Adam Mayes also killed 14-year-old Adrienne Bain at that location.
Teresa Mayes also said her husband planned to kidnap Alexandria and Kyliyah.
Adam Mayes’ mother Mary is charged with four counts of Conspiracy To Commit Especially Aggravated Kidnapping.
The FBI added the suspect, Adam Mayes, to its list of 10 most wanted fugitives and added $100,000 to the reward fund offered for a break in the case. Mayes has been charged with killing Jo Ann Bain and her eldest daughter, Adrienne, in late April, but authorities believe he is still holding Bain’s younger daughters, 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah.
“From an investigative standpoint, we keenly and firmly believe that Adam Mayes is out here somewhere with these two young children,” said Mark Gwyn, director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. “And it’s going to be up to the public to help us if we’re to bring these children back home and place him in custody where he needs to be.”
As stated at Blink on Crime, “Adam Mayes believes Alexandria and Kyliyah are HIS DAUGHTERS and they were set to move to Arizona.” This can explain why only the mother and eldest daughter were killed and the two youngest are still believed to be alive as per the FBI.
Mayes’ mother-in-law told The Associated Press that Mayes thought he might be the girls’ father and it caused trouble in the marriage to her daughter, who’s jailed in the case.

“I’ve known Adam for at least 25 years, and he’s always been weird and unusual … but I never dreamed he would do something like this,” she said.
She described him as aggressive and not trustworthy. He beat and threatened to kill her sister, said Booth, who pleaded with him to “do the right thing.”

The FBI has confirmed what many of us had suspected once the bodies of two individuals were found at the residence of suspected kidnapper Adam Mayes. Authorities have confirmed that the bodies discovered behind a home in Union County Mississippi were that of missing 31 year old mother Jo Ann Bain and her oldest daughter, 14 year old Adrienne Bain. This would make some sense if the suspect Mayes is a child predator, killing off the older hostages. The FBI did not say the cause of murder.
The bodies of a Tennessee mother and her oldest daughter were found behind an alleged kidnapper’s house in north Mississippi, the FBI said Monday, and authorities believe the woman’s two other daughters are still with the man accused in their abduction.
Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters disappeared April 27 as the family was packing to move to Arizona. The bodies of Bain and her 14-year-old daughter, Adrienne Bain, were found behind Adam Mayes’ house near Guntown, a rural area police have been searching.
The bodies were discovered late last week and positively identified. The FBI did not say how the two died.
The FBI said it believed the other daughters — 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah — were still with Mayes. The agency did not say in a news release why it thought that, and FBI spokesman Joel Siskovic said no further details were available on the bodies or the search for Mayes and the girls.

Jo Ann is married to Gary Bain, they are not seperated. They have been married for about 11 years and Kyliyah is their child. Adrienna and Alexandria are Jo Ann’s daughters from a previous marriage to Mark Johnson. Then there is so-called family friend and POI, Adam Christopher Mayes.
Deputies revealed that Bain’s husband was the adoptive father of two of the girls and biological father to one. The entire family was planning a move to Arizona last weekend; exactly when Jo Ann, Adrienne, Alexandria, and Kyliyah disappeared.
“One of the children has asthma and they say it’s better for the child out there as far as the atmosphere and lack of humidity,” added Sheriff Doolen.
