Court records reveal that the husband of a missing pregnant mother initially lied to investigators about his wife's disappearance in Oklahoma in an attempt to hide that she allegedly met sex-for-money clients through Craigslist.
Jaymie Adams, 25, a mother of three children, disappeared Dec. 10 in Oklahoma City. Police have ruled the case a homicide investigation, though no suspects have been identified.
The husband, Justin Adams, 25, initially told police that his wife disappeared after going to meet a "friend" at a McDonald's, and he denied knowing who his wife was meeting.
But a search warrant says he later admitted that Jaymie Adams "had been meeting with strangers all over (the metro) since October," KFOR-TV reports. She advertised on Craigslist as a "massage therapist" and often engaged in sexual acts with clients for cash, he said, revealing that his wife had gone to meet a "client" at a motel in Norman on the day she disappeared, the Daily Mail reports.
Police found her van at a McDonald's in Oklahoma City.
"There's nothing unreasonable about him not disclosing that she was out prostituting herself," Irven Box, Justin Adams' attorney, told KFOR-TV. "He didn't want police to know that, so he was deceptive to start with."
Police suggest that Jaymie Adams, who reportedly is two months pregnant, could be dead.
"Homicide will get involved in cases like this, because of the length of time she's been missing," Oklahoma City Police Capt. Dexter Nelson told the Daily Mail. "There's that, and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the disappearance."
Justin and Jaymie Adams have been married since February and have a four-month-old baby together. Justin Adams was reportedly interrogated by police after Jaymie's disappearance but was never charged.
