FBI: Tenn. Fugitive Dead

Adam Mayes, the Tennessee fugitive charged with kidnapping two young girls and suspected of killing their mother and older sister killed himself Thursday as a SWAT team approached the location he was holding the two girls at, the FBI confirmed. The girls, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, were said to be safe in en route to a local emergency room, a Mississippi’s Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards told local media. Mayes was last seen two weeks ago and was said to have believed that the Bain girls were his daughters. The girl’s mother and sister were confirmed dead late last week, having been shot outside of Mayes’s home in Guntown, Miss.
