The body of Jaymie Adams, the pregnant mother of three and alleged Craigslist hooker, has been found, and her husband’s lawyer told ABCNews.com that her husband and mother-in-law were being treated as suspects.
Adams, 25, had been missing since Dec. 10, when, her husband Justin Adams claimed in a court affidavit, she left to meet a client for sex.
Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow, of the Oklahoma City Police Department, said a man called police Saturday afternoon to report a dead body in a wooded area where people ride dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles.
Police confirmed it was Adams’ body, but were waiting for a medical examiner to report on possible cause of death, Wardlow said.
Police believe it was a homicide but have no “named suspects,” Wardlow said, adding, “as always, we ask the public to call with any tips.”
Police impounded two vehicles Saturday, one belonging to Justin Adams, the other belonging to his mother, Tina Clark, Wardlow said. Police have asked for a warrant to search the vehicles, but Wardlow said she didn’t know when it might be granted.
Irven Box, Justin Adams’ attorney, said his client, though not named as such, was a suspect.
“He was grilled by police several weeks ago,” Box said. When Justin Adams and his mother asked to retrieve personal items from their vehicles as they were being impounded, police answered, “‘No, you’re a suspect,’” Box told ABCNews.com.
A search warrant for Justin and Jaymie Adams’ cell phone records filed last week revealed Justin Adams initially told police his wife disappeared after going to meet a friend at a McDonald’s, but a day later he told police his wife went to meet a sex client. Box said this wasn’t incriminating since he was at first trying to protect his wife by not revealing her prostitution.
“If he’d really done it, you’d think he would have [initially] told the police, ‘Hey, she was probably taken by some John,” Box said.
