(WMC-TV) – Additional details about the man suspected of kidnapping Jo Ann Bain and her three daughters are surfacing.

Police records show that Adam Mayes was investigated in 2010 for sexual abuse.

Mayes shot himself when he was found Thursday night after being on the run with Alexandria Bain, 12, and her sister Kyliyah, 8, for nearly two weeks.  The girls' mother, Jo Ann, and older sister, Adrienne, were found dead in the backyard of Mayes' home.

In the police report obtained by Action News 5, someone reported that Mayes was babysitting a 7-year-old girl when a family member walked in on them in the bathroom.  The report said Mayes and the young girl were naked and he was shaving her legs.

The person who called in the report also claimed that Mayes had a stash of child pornography in his bedroom.

Later, investigators went to Mayes' home to speak with him.  He was at work, but his wife, Teresa was home and gave them permission to walk through their home to gather information.

Teresa revealed that the 7-year-old girl and her family came to the Mayes' home a couple of times a month for weekend visits.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service was then asked to do a mail check on Mayes for 30 days.  They also sent a "reverse" in an attempt to see if he would subscribe to a child porn mailing.

Investigators reported they found no signs of child pornography being received by mail; therefore, the allegations were unfounded.

Mayes claimed his sister made the accusations because she was mad at him and his wife, Teresa, for kicking her out of their house a few months prior.

WMC-TV is not disclosing the name of the 7-year-old victim due to the sexual nature of the allegations.

Two incident reports from 2009 reveals details about the relationship Mayes had with his wife, Teresa. 

Officers were called to check on a domestic dispute at the couple's home in Jackson, MS.  Mayes told them that he and his wife got into an argument about his niece.  Teresa got mad, went outside, and got into their car.

A few months later, officers were called to the home again.  Mayes told them his wife said she was not happy living with him and mentioned that if she committed suicide, she might be happy.

During talks with Teresa, she said she made that comment out of anger and had no intention of hurting herself. 

It is mentioned in the documents that Teresa was a patient at a counseling center where she was being treated for depression.

Teresa is charged with two counts of first degree murder and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping in connection the murders of Jo Ann and Adrienne Bain, and the kidnapping of Alexandria and Kyliyah.
