OKLAHOMA CITY -- Homicide detectives seized two vehicles during the investigation into the death of missing Blanchard mother, Jaymie Adams. Police impounded the cars of Jaymie Adams' husband, Justin Adams, and his mother, Tina Clarke.
Sunday, Justin met with his attorney Irven Box. According to Box, Justin told him while police seized his van and his mother's car, they were told by police they are suspects in Jaymie Adams' death. However, detectives aren't confirming that.
"He was in tears most of the time when I talked to him," said Box. "He's trying to deal with what's going on."
Twenty-five-year-old Jaymie Adams' body was found by a biker near a dirt bike trail at Lake Stanley Draper on Saturday. Police have said the case is being treated as a homicide.
The young mother was last seen by her husband on December 9. Justin first told police his wife was going to meet a friend at a McDonald's in Midwest City. Her locked van was found in the restaurant's parking lot the next day and later seized by police. Box says it's unclear why it has been impounded again.
"Did they think maybe somebody took the body out in recent days and other things could be found in the van," said Box. "They had it three days, what did they not find in three days that they now can find?"
According to court papers, Jaymie Adams' husband later changed his story and told police instead of a friend, his wife went to meet someone she met on Craigslist for sex. However, police have not confirmed if that is what actually happened.
"One of the important factors is going to be the cell phones, calls, text messaging, his computer and her computer," said Box. "I know the police are looking into those things, if there were any other persons communicating with her."
The body of Jaymie Adams was sent to the State Medical Examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
