Adam Mayes, 35, on America’s Most Wanted Fugitive List, was caught in Mississippi, Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards confirmed.

Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall says a SWAT team located Mayes in New Albany, Miss., with the help of a tip. When they moved in to apprehend him, he shot himself.

A law enforcement source initially told Fox News that Mayes died after the shooting, but Edwards says he’s still alive — in critical condition — from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

  3. TJ says:

    Sooo grateful those two girls survived.

  4. T. Ruth says:

    Thank you Jesus. Continued prayers for these two beautiful young girls.

  5. mag603 says:

    OMG….Glad the girls are safe; but cannot imagine the horrors they have experience the past several days. At least they have one another.

  6. SouthernMom says:

    Finally a day to rejoice!!! Thank you so much Blink for your continuous fight for victims everyday!

    Agreed Patricia…praying with you now, as many prayers are needed for these girls who’ve lost their mother and big sister, and experienced evil in a way no one should ever have to face.

    Highest regards to all the blinkettes and blinksters as well.

  7. Rose says:

    if he was homicidal, he’d be suicidal,
    but I hoped he’d not kill the girls.
    Blink & wpg appealed
    to his better side back in the thread.

  9. A Texas Grandfather says:

    Just got home from band practice. Thank GOD the girls are safe.

    What a wonderful report. Thanks to all who prayed for the girls and families.

  10. sandyeggo says:

    So happy the girls were spared.

    On another note, this article indicates that the Brains were divorced, referring to Jo Ann as Gary’s ex-wife. Is that correct, Blink?


  11. sandyeggo says:

    Bains not brains…damn auto correct!

  12. daydreamer says:

    So they are saying Mayes is alive but critical? Well even if he makes it he won’t be in any shape to hurt anyone else.Thank God the girls are alive.

  13. Malty says:

    This is almost the first case I ever was watching that turned out OK
    Thanks be to God
    It is hard that he thought he was their Dad
    But maybe it kept them alive

  14. NY Liz says:

    So happy to hear the girls are safe. I was terrified that Adam would have a ‘Josh Powell’ moment and kill the girls with him because of the thought ‘If I can’t have them, no one will’. Thank God I was wrong.

  15. twinkletoes says:

    Thank God the children are alive. Let the healing begin…

  16. twinkletoes says:

    I feared the same, but I think Josh Powell was a very unique and special breed of evil. Thank God.

    Maybe had Mayes had more time, he would have harmed the children, so I don’t want to attribute more ethics to him than are realistic considering the context. The heros here are the LE that tracked him and stormed him quickly before he had time to think about taking the girls with him.

  17. Cindy says:

    Continue to pray for these two little girls as they will need all we can give to get through the tragedy of losing their mother and sister.

  18. Carol says:

    Thank you! I pray these little girls will be okay with they have been through.

    He’s a coward!!

  19. amanda says:

    In this case I am elated to be wrong about my suspicions of the two girl’s safety. I pray for them and their family as they began the grieving process for Jodi and Adrienne Bain.

  20. toni says:

    They have now arrested 3 more people, one of which gave him the gune. They have not identified them yet, but I am wondering if one of them is his dad. We have not heard anything about his dad except that he lived with his mom and dad.

  21. Bam from Ms says:

    Blink….. what’s your opinion of the dad? Do you think he’s innocent in all of this??


    I believe LE has done enough diligence that they would not release the girls to him if they could not clear him from any involvement whatsoever.

    So until anyone tells me differently, I am going on that premise.

    I do believe there is much investigating that needs to be done yet, overall.


  22. Bam from Ms says:

    ^^^^^^^ **the father of the abducted**

  23. R.L. Haley says:

    Im so happy they found them!,I prayed (and I dont really pray) and I woke to the news , so happy but I also know they now have work ahead of them,because of what that evil man has done.

  24. Marine Mama says:

    Blink, Do you know what happened to The Hinky Meter’s web page??

    I do not, but you are at least post/email 100.


  25. SouthernMom says:

    Gotta say I had one of my busiest weeks ever and it was really stressful. Today was no different with work, kids, extended family duties, but I had a happiness in my spirit throughout the day that can be attributed to the outcome of this case. So grateful for these darlings to be alive.

  26. CBickel says:

    Was the older daughter from another marrage or are all three kids from this marrage? It doesn’t matter really as Mayes was a friend of the family since before the girls were born. I can’t figure out how you can kill anybody, much less 2 people that you’ve known for years and been close to. I bet the 14 yr old was terrified and that thought haunts me at night now when I try to sleep. I would imagine the mother faught back as well as the 14 yr old. Did they make enough noise that the younger girls knew something was going on or were they oblivious to the whole grusome act….spared of that would be a blessing.

  27. NY Liz says:

    So it appears that neither Gary nor Adam Mayes was the biological father of Adrienne or Alexandria (older sisters). Mark Johnson is reported to be the biological father and he signed over his custodial rights to Gary. Now Mark wants his rights back…Link is below –


    This is shaping up to be one crazy news day fo schizz.


  28. Jane says:

    RE #27 After what these two young girls have been through and survived together, I think it would be heartless to separate them.

  29. twinkletoes says:

    I agree, Jane. They need each other. They are bonded for life. Does anyone know how they are faring? Keeping these youngsters in my prayers.

  30. twinkletoes says:

    Apparently, no one from AB’s family wants to claim his body. Well, that’s telling. Of course, his mother and wife are still in jail, I assume. I hope.
