Jayme Closs Spent First Night Home Next To Me, Says Aunt

Jayme Closs: Suspect named in kidnapping and murder case

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

Katie Beers' joy quickly turned to deep concern when she learned 13-year-old Jayme Closs had been found alive in rural Wisconsin almost three months after police say a man shot and killed her parents and then abducted the girl from their home.

Jayme Closs had been missing for almost three months when she approached a stranger in a small Wisconsin town and pleaded for help.

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, has been charged with murdering the parents of Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs in order to kidnap the 13-year-old-AFP " Jayme was taken against her will and escaped from the residence in which she was being held and found help", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters. He was jailed on suspicion of kidnapping and homicide.

Fitzgerald said Friday that authorities do not know how Patterson became aware of Closs, as he reportedly never had contact with her family. They said there is nothing to indicate that he knew or had contact with the family before the incident, and said they do not know how he came to fixate on Jayme.

"I'm lost and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Jayme told Nutter.

Taken at knifepoint from her Salt Lake City bedroom in 2002, Smart said that during her captivity, she felt like "life had been stolen from me, all the dreams and aspirations had been stolen".

Mrs Kasinskas told the Press she had not seen him on their street or in town since high school, describing him as "a quiet kid".

In a yearbook from Patterson's senior year, he said his post-school plans were to join the Marine Corps and his senior quote was, "Finally done with school".

While authorities are still trying to determine the motive behind the kidnapping, more details about Patterson have emerged.

The cabin is in Eau Claire Acres, a development about 10 miles outside the tiny town of Gordon, nestled in the dense evergreen forests of northwestern Wisconsin that are popular with vacationers in the summer and snowmobilers and ATV riders in the winter. It's wild country; roadside signs admonish motorists to share the pavement with ATVs. Prosecutors anticipate filing homicide and kidnapping charges against him on Monday.

The two women urged the media and well-wishers to give Jayme and her relatives privacy as they reconnect with each other, and Smart said she hoped Jayme's story would serve as a reminder to the public.

Patterson's parents divorced in 2008, according to online court records.

Neighbor Daphne Ronning told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Patterson's parents moved to Gordon about 15 years ago. Police are still investigating and say 'she is doing as well as circumstances allow'. Another neighbor, Patricia Osborne, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the brothers often got into trouble.

Officers say they don't think their paths crossed. Englehardt couldn't stay standing when she learned Jayme was finally found.

The news that Jayme was safe brought joy and relief to her hometown of Barron, population 3,300 and about 60 miles from where she was found.

Another aunt, Sue Naiberg Allard, posted that Jayme got "the most awaited hug ever" when she returned home. She spoke with WTVF about how the news of someone else's daughter coming home feels while her daughter is still missing.

"It has been unreal for the community, we've went from extreme fear for both Jayme and her family and for everyone in the community to now just elation".

Smart called Closs fearless, strong, and a powerful survivor - but also says there is a long road ahead.

On Thursday, Closs was able to escape from a cabin before flagging down a person walking a dog in Gordon and asking for help, authorities said.

Nutter took her to the nearby home of Peter and Kristin Kasinskas.

He added: 'She did not talk about why or how. After almost 90 days of being held against her will, Jayme Closs is finally home. Fitzgerald hasn't said whether Jayme was sexually assaulted but said Saturday that investigators believe Jake Patterson acted alone.

"I don't understand it yet myself", Fitzgerald said. "Believe me, so are we".

"He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know Denise or Jim", Naiberg said.
