CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Daniel McMullen, FBI agent in charge of the manhunt for Adam Mayes and the two missing girls.
Adam Mayes - accused of murder and kidnapping in a case involving a Tennessee mother and her three daughters - has died, FBI spokesman Joel Siskovic said late Thursday. The two sisters he allegedly kidnapped were found alive, law enforcement sources said.
There had been conflicting reports about whether Mayes was dead or alive after he reportedly shot himself in Union County, Mississippi.
Daniel McMullen, FBI special agent in charge in Jackson, Mississippi, said that officers with the Mississippi Highway Safety Patrol and state Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Parks rescued Alexandria and Kyliyah Bain, "alive and unharmed."
"Preliminary reports indicate that Mr. Mayes shot himself in the head and was later pronounced dead," McMullen told reporters.
