Okla. Mom's Body Found; Husband, Mom-in-Law Treated as Suspects

Comstock/Thinkstock(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- The body of Jaymie Adams, the pregnant mother of three and alleged Craigslist hooker, has been found, and her husband’s lawyer told ABC News 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 a 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.

A search warrant for Justin and Jaymie Adams’ cellphone 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.

Missing Oklahoma Mom Met Clients for Sex, Husband Told Cops

Ryan McVay/Thinkstock(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- The husband of a mother missing since early December changed his story after reporting her disappearance, adding the detail that she was advertising as a massage therapist on Craigslist and meeting men for sex, according to a new police report.

Justin Adams initially told Oklahoma City, Okla., police his wife, Jaymie Adams, 26, went missing when she went to meet a friend at a local McDonald’s. He said the last time he heard from her was when she called to tell him she was in the parking lot. He found her empty van the next morning around 5 a.m. and reported her missing.

A search warrant for Justin and Jaymie Adams’ cellphone records filed this week revealed that Justin Adams came back the next day with a different story.

“On [Dec. 11, 2011] … Justin Adams walked into the OCPD Santa Fe Briefing Station and informed officers that he hadn’t been completely honest with officers in reference to his report on [Dec. 10],” the report reads.

Adams informed officers that his wife -- who has three kids and who a Facebook page said was two months pregnant --  advertised as a massage therapist on Craigslist, but was actually “engaging in sexual acts for cash.”

Adams told officers his wife was actually going to meet a client at a motel, and the last message he received from her said she was at McDonald’s, but the client didn’t show up.

The couple also participated in “swinging” with people they met on Craigslist, Adams told authorities.

Jaymie Adams took her cellphone and laptop with her when she left that night. According to the police report, “telephone records show that during the morning of 12/10/11, the telephones of both Justin and Jaymie were relaying telephone calls from the same telephone towers.”

Justin Adams also told authorities, according to the warrant, that a nearby restaurant owner told him he had seen Jaymie Adams paying for her meal at nearly 3 a.m. on Dec. 10.

Investigators interviewed the restaurant manager Justin Adams said he had spoken with, but the manager told police he didn’t remember seeing Jaymie Adams. Surveillance video from the restaurant also didn’t show her in the restaurant.

Several days after Adams admitted to initially lying to police, he agreed to take a polygraph test. He was found to be “deceptive” when answering the question, “Do you know your wife’s whereabouts?”

Sgt. Gary Knight with the Oklahoma City Police Department said there have been no new developments in the case, and both missing persons and homicide detectives are working to find Jaymie Adams.

“Anytime there’s a case like this, when someone’s been missing a long time and the circumstances are so suspicious, you don’t know if they’re going to turn up alive or dead,” Knight told ABC News, “so we have investigators from different departments, including homicide, involved in the investigation.”

Calls to Justin Adams’ attorney, Irven Box, were not returned.

Police have not named any suspects in the disappearance.
