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.
Investigators said the body showed signs of possible trauma and that it had been there more than a day, but offered little else about the condition of the victim's remains.
Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said there have been no arrests in the case and no suspects.
Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman with the state medical examiner's office, said the Blanchard woman's cause of death is still pending.
Additional details released
Court documents made available Tuesday also show investigators interviewed Josh Adams, the brother of Justin Adams.
Josh Adams told police he took Clarke to Oklahoma City the night before Jaymie Adams, 25, was reported missing so she could pick up a car from her parents.
He said his mother returned to her trailer after picking up the 1980 Chevrolet Chevette.
Clarke told police Justin Adams showed up at her trailer just a couple of hours before he filed a missing persons report, asking to borrow her car to go look for his wife.
She told police she drove her son around in the pre-dawn hours of Dec. 10 in search of Jaymie Adams, finally locating her van at the McDonald's restaurant near SE 29 and S Douglas Boulevard.
Josh Adams was interviewed by police Jan. 5, two days before Jaymie Adams' body was found near Lake Stanley Draper.
