Jayme Closs Kidnapping Suspect Identified, Charged With Murder


"The subject planned his actions and took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public". According to the 911 call log, the dispatcher noted they "could hear a lot of yelling".

Fitzgerald says Closs was medically cleared, is out of the hospital and is being interviewed by law enforcement.

When authorities responded to the home, they found the front door kicked in and the couple had been shot to death.

CBS affiliate WCCO spoke with Jayme's aunt Sue, who says Jayme is now in the hospital; once she's released, she'll be brought back to Barron to be reunited with her family.

Closs vanished on October 15, 2018.

The police said they would reveal more details later today. What happened to Jayme that night, and how did the teenager end up in Gordon, some 66 miles north of her home?

Closs has been missing since October 15, when her parents were found murdered in their Barron, Wisconsin home. She was - she did state who she believed had her, and she did give us a little information about the person's vehicle. "I've been in the dumpster for three months", he said. This is what brought her home, all the posters and everything. She was rescued nine months later.

On Friday, Smart posted on her Instagram account that it was a "miracle" Jayme had been found alive. The exact details of the child's escape were not released.

- Authorities said Friday they have arrested 21-year-old Jake Patterson of Gordon, Wisconsin for the abduction of 13-year-old Jayme Closs and the murders of her parents. Following the murders, police failed to locate their teenage daughter, Jayme.

"Jayme is safe, and the family is requesting that you please respect their privacy at this extremely emotional time", he said.

"I was terrified, but I didn't want to show her that", Nutter told the AP.

Authorities said Jayme had been home when her parents were killed, that she was not suspect and that they believed she was in danger.

"For her to get away and to do this, it's not her character", said Sue Allard.

The two went elsewhere in the neighborhood, to the home of Peter and Kristin Kasinskas.

Fitzgerald said it appears Patterson targeted Jayme and killed her parents in order to abduct her.

Investigators continue to speak to Jayme, and are still learning more about her frightening ordeal, Fitzgerald said. "It was like I was seeing a ghost", Kasinskas told the Star-Tribune. "My jaw just went to the floor". We also don't believe at this time the suspect had any contact with the family.

Jayme Closs, the 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who has been missing for almost three months, has been found. Douglas County, where Jayme was found, is hundreds of miles northwest of Walworth County.

We will have a live report from Barron County during WEAU 13 News at 10 p.m.

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches to try to find Closs.

Some tips led officials to recruit 2,000 volunteers for a massive ground search on October 23.

"Jayme was taken against her will and escaped from a residence at which she was being held, and found help", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald. "And it was Jayme herself who gave us that break". Authorities do not know why Patterson allegedly targeted the Closs family and do not believe he had a prior connection with Jayme Closs or her parents, reported CNN.

He acknowledged that Jayme may not be the same person she was before she disappeared. When she opened it, her neighbor was standing next to a skinny girl with unkempt hair and oversized shoes.

She asked Closs if she knew where Gordon, Wisconsin was.
