The Mississippi man suspected of killing a Tennessee mother and daughter was caught Thursday evening and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, authorities say, while the other two young daughters he is suspected of kidnapping were found alive and safe.
Adam Mayes, 35, on who was added to the FBI's Most Wanted Fugitive List Wednesday, was caught in Mississippi after police received a tip.
Guntown Police Chief Michael Hall says a SWAT team located Mayes in New Albany, Miss., and when they moved in to apprehend him, he shot himself.
Edwards said Mayes was still alive -- in critical condition -- after police took him into custody. He later died from wounds, the FBI confirmed.
Police say the two daughters that Mayes allegedly abducted, Alexandria Bain, 12, and Kyliyah Bain, 8, were found alive and safe. Both girls were being taken to a hospital for observation. It was not immediately clear if they were with Mayes when he was found.
Mayes and his wife, Teresa, are charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of Jo Ann Bain, 31, and her daughter, Adrienne, 14. Their bodies were found buried outside the Mayes' home a week after they were reported missing by Jo Ann Bain's husband, Gary.
Teresa Mayes told investigators that after she saw her husband kill the two in the garage at the Bain home, she drove him, the younger girls and the bodies to Mississippi, according to affidavits filed in court. She faces six felony counts in the case: two first-degree murder charges and four especially aggravated kidnapping charges.
