Body of kidnapper goes unclaimed in Mississippi

MEMPHIS — Mississippi officials are trying to determine what to do with the body of a man who abducted two young Tennessee girls after he killed their mother and oldest sister.

Police believe Adam Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain, and her 14-year-old daughter, Adrienne Bain, in their home in Whiteville, Tenn., on April 27. Bain’s two younger daughters were safely recovered after Mayes fatally shot himself when police tracked him down in Union County, Miss., on May 10.

Mark Golding, the medical examiner for Union County, told WMC-TV that Mayes’ family won’t accept the remains, which are currently located in the state crime lab in Jackson.

Mayes’ wife and mother remain in jail in Hardeman County, Tenn., on charges related to the kidnapping and murders.
