Wisconsin girl, 13, didn't know man who abducted her, killed her parents

Jake Thomas Patterson killed Jayme Closs parents before kidnapping her

After the news that 13-year-old Jayme Closs was found safe in Wisconsin after missing for almost three months, there are many emotions being felt by the families of other missing persons.

Investigators in Wisconsin say they're trying to determine what led the man suspected of kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs to the girl. Patterson quit, saying he was moving from the area, according to the company.

They went to a nearby house and pounded on the door with Jeanne shouting 'This is Jayme Closs!

Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg said in a telephone interview on Saturday that no one in the family knew Patterson.

Jake Thomas Patterson was arrested on two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping, police said on Friday.

Officers arrested Patterson, 21, minutes later, based on Jayme's description of his vehicle.

The sheriff said that he did not know whether Closs had been physically abused.

She vanished on October 15 after her parents - James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, - were shot dead at their home in Barron County.

Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there.

Jayme Closs's aunt, Jennifer Naiberg Smith, posted an update on Jayme's condition Saturday morning, shared via the Healing For Jayme Closs Facebook page.

Authorities said they believed Closs was Patterson's "only target" and was taken against her will. But the sheriff said it did not appear Patterson interacted with the couple.

Often times in the wake of tragedy, bogus fundraisers pop-up on social media by scammers looking to take advantage of the situation.

They called for help.


Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents also worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron - the company's president said.

Authorities say that the Closs family did now know Jake Patterson.

Jennifer Smith, Jayme's aunt and now legal guardian, posted two photos of Jayme smiling after what she said was a good night's sleep in Smith's home.

James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons.

Detectives will keep talking to Jayme, but at her own pace, to get more details to help in their investigation.

Patterson took measures to avoid leaving evidence at the scene, including shaving his head beforehand, and a shotgun was recovered from the home where Jayme was believed held, Fitzgerald said. Like Closs, she was also found alive, but after nine months of captivity.

Residents who knew Patterson described him as quiet.

Patterson, who is unemployed with no criminal record, was scheduled for an initial court appearance on Monday when homicide and kidnapping charges are expected to be filed.

They sought refuse with husband and wife Kristin and Peter Kasinskas while the police turned up.

She was released from the hospital Friday and was reunited with her aunt in Barron, Wisconsin, and her dog, Molly. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

"They're probably experiencing a lot of feelings because although they're so overjoyed for the Closs family, there is still that, 'But I'm waiting for my loved one to come home, '" Straub said.

"She just yelled, 'Please help me!"
