The mother of Adam Mayes, who allegedly killed a mother and sister and kidnapped the two younger sisters before shooting himself after police tracked him down, has been formally charged with aggravated kidnapping for her role in helping with her son’s plot.
Law enforcement officers provided an inside glimpse into the manhunt that ended with the self-inflicted death of Adam Mayes and the recovery of his young kidnap victims Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain.
The two-week manhunt for Adam Mayes, the 35-year-old man wanted for the killing of mother and daughter Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain and kidnapping of two younger daughters Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain, ended Thursday night when Mayes shot himself in the head rather than surrender to authorities.
While the manhunt for Adam Mayes, 35, and the two daughters of Jo Ann Bain — Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8 — continues, officials for the F.B.I. announced his addition to its Ten Most Wanted list. A look at Crime Library’s Top 25 Most Wanted Fugitives in America.
