Mayes Sighting Being Checked
Law officers across the Mid-South are chasing leads in the manhunt for Adam Mayes.
McNairy County Sheriff Guy Buck told us he has been checking out reports of Mayes sightings in the town of Ramer.
So far, those leads have not produced an arrest.
Earlier today, the mother and the wife of Adam Mayes were charged in connection with the case.
Teresa Mayes is charged with four counts of Especially Aggravated Kidnapping.
Mary Mayes is charged with four counts of Conspiracy To Commit Especially Aggravated Kidnapping.
According to an affidavit, Teresa Mayes admitted to helping drive Jo Ann Bain and her daughters to Union County, MS and helping to “confine” the family.
Both women also said they saw Adam Mayes digging a hole on April 27, the same day the Bain family was last seen.
Yesterday, the FBI confirmed the bodies of Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter had been found in shallow graves at the Mayes home Friday.
Bond for Teresa Mayes is set at $500,000 and for Mary Mayes was set at $300,000.
