Suspect in U.S. murder and kidnapping dead, two girls alive
Emily Le CozALPINE COMMUNITY, Mississippi (Reuters) - The most-wanted fugitive in America shot himself dead on Thursday, but the two girls he was suspected of kidnapping were found alive, ending a drama that began with the killing of the girls' mother and older sister.
Adam Mayes, 35, shot himself in the head after Mississippi state game wardens came across him and the girls hiding in the woods, said Union County Sheriff Jimmy Edwards, who arrived on the scene while Mayes was still alive but fatally wounded.
"The girls are safe. He is deceased," FBI Special Agent Joel Siskovic said.
