CHICKASHA — Recently released court documents reveal the mother-in-law of a pregnant Blanchard woman found dead in January in south Oklahoma City tried to persuade a male companion to lie to investigators about the case.
Records filed in Grady County show Tina Clark urged a man identified as Charles Holt to change his story when he was interviewed by police following the disappearance of her daughter-in-law, Jaymie Adams.
Jaymie Adams was reported missing Dec. 10 by her husband, Justin Adams, who is Clark's son.
Justin Adams has since been arrested in his wife's killing and no additional arrests have been made.
Records also show other pieces of evidence relating to Tina Clark's involvement, however, Oklahoma City police say Clark is not a suspect.
Text messages from Holt implied that Clark had asked him “several” times to change his story about her whereabouts on the night before Jaymie Adams was reported missing.
“Today u told me too how to say it. I tell the truth ...,” one of the messages from Holt said. “I'm not your alibi ... I'm a person that stayed at your trailer the night this all evolved but as a alibi not.”
At one point, Holt also threatened to “(turn) in my old iPhone with all your texts to them (detectives),” which to police means there are more messages out there.
Records further show that Justin Adams called Clark about 3 a.m. the day he reported his wife missing. Police say cell tower data taken from Clark's mobile device indicates she left her residence in the early morning hours of Dec. 10 after the call from her son.
“The cellphone records and cell tower data apparently conflict with Tina Clark's statements to police,” Oklahoma City detective Roland Garrett wrote in an affidavit.
Further searches of Clark's cellphone and other electronic devices revealed that she was possibly using Craigslist to work as a prostitute. Police have said that both Justin Adams and Jaymie Adams were using the same website to solicit for sex, as well.
Documents show that Clark's cellphone contained photos of the woman “photographing herself nude in front of a mirror” and that several text messages sent to her were from individuals offering “money for sexual acts.”
Time of death
The latest documents also reveal an archeologist, who examined Jaymie Adams' remains and the location where her body was found, determined she'd been dead for 29 days.
According to the state medical examiner, the mother of four had been stabbed multiple times and her body was badly decomposed. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Her body was found by dirt bike riders in the 7200 block of S Douglas Boulevard, less than five miles south of where her minivan was abandoned at a McDonald's restaurant.
