Investigators checked a 1980 Chevrolet Chevette and a van they have twice impounded in case they were used by those involved in the death of Jaymie Adams, court documents show.

Search warrants were filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County “based on the evidence at the scene and statements made by witnesses.”

The 2004 Chrysler Town & Country van belonged to the victim and was found in the early morning hours of Dec. 10, the day she was reported missing by her husband, Justin Adams.

The Chevette belonged to Justin Adams' mother, Tina Clarke.

Neither vehicle was searched until after Jan. 8, when both were impounded by Oklahoma City police.

Investigators were seeking objects “capable of producing blunt force trauma injuries” when they searched the vehicles earlier in the month, the warrants reveal.

The search warrants show investigators also were seeking biological evidence, fingerprints, shoe prints and “blood-stained articles” when they looked through the vehicles.

The van was impounded Dec. 12 from the McDonald's restaurant where it was found abandoned two days earlier. It was subsequently returned to Justin Adams.

It was impounded again the day after Jaymie Adams' body was found, with police recovering it from the Adams property in Blanchard the second time.

The woman's decomposing body was found Jan. 7 in a wooded area near the 7200 block of S Douglas Boulevard by a group of dirt bike riders, police said.
