BLANCHARD, Okla.-The investigation into the death of an Oklahoma mother continues and now her mother-in-law is speaking out.

Last December, volunteers spent days searching for 25-year-old Jaymie Adams after she was reported missing by her husband, Justin Adams.

After weeks of searching, officers found the pregnant mother of three’s body near Lake Stanley Draper.

Investigators uncovered that Jaymie and her husband had solicited sex on Craigslist for money.

Earlier this year, police arrested Justin Adams for the murder of his wife and unborn child.

Justin’s mother is speaking out, saying her son is innocent and so is she.

Tina Clark said, “Violated, that’s actually how I feel.”

Clark is responding to the most recent search of her home involving the murder of her daughter-in-law.

Her son is charged with killing his pregnant wife and Clark says the whole investigation is taking a toll on her family.

She said, “I’m not eating, I’m not sleeping; everything that my parents have worked for is on the line. They wouldn’t have put up a dime if they thought Justin was guilty in any way.”

Friday, investigators searched her Blanchard home looking for any evidence that can prove her, along with her son’s, location on December 9, 2011 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Authorities say that is when they believe Jaymie was murdered.

The warrant Clark was served says agents can retrieve any communication documents or devices that might provide information to her location.

Those devices include computers, flash drives, recorders, emails, journals and cell phones.

 Clark said, “I had a son that showed where I was at who picked me up. I had a mom and dad telling I was physically in their house getting keys to a vehicle. I have a land-line proving that at 11:50 p.m. I was talking to my mother for an hour.”

She says she believes police are wasting time and money continuing to treat her like a suspect.

“We’re having this tax problem; we want to have taxes cut. I see a lot of tax dollars being wasted today, a whole lot.”

During the search, Clark says police confiscated five computers, two of which she says are not hers, a wireless router and an internet box.

Oklahoma City police officials were not able to respond to Clark’s concerns at the time of broadcast.

However, investigators had court documents and probable cause for the search.
