Mississippi officials are trying to determine what to do with the body of a man who abducted two young Tennessee girls after he killed their mother and oldest sister.

Police believe Adam Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain and her 14-year-old daughter, Adrienne Bain, on April 27 in their home in Whiteville, Tenn. Bain's two younger daughters were found and taken home after Mayes fatally shot himself when police tracked him down May 10 in Union County, Miss.

Mark Golding, the medical examiner for Union County, told WMC TV that Mayes' family won't accept the remains, which are currently located in the state crime lab in Jackson.

Mayes' wife and mother remain in jail in Hardeman County, Tenn., on charges related to the kidnapping and slayings.
