On Friday, May 4 authorities discovered two bodies at a Guntown residence of Adam Mayes. The bodies were later identified as Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter Adrienne. According to officers, Mayes killed Jo Ann and her eldest daughter in Hardeman County, Tennessee, before transporting their bodies to Guntown.

The two surviving girls were transported to a local medical center before being transferred to Le Bonheur.
