Suspect in Wisconsin killings, kidnapping due in court

Accused Jayme Closs kidnapper shaved his head so he would not leave hair behind at her home authorities say Jake Patterson is being held on charges of kidnapping and two counts of murder

Churchgoers in a small northwestern Wisconsin town say their prayers were answered by the safe return of a 13-year-old girl almost three months after authorities say she was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

An intruder blasted open the door of James and Denise Closs' home near Barron with a shotgun October 15, gunned the couple down and made off with Jayme.

That led to an intense search that ended on Thursday when she was found alive 70 miles from her home.

The adults knew Closs's accused captor also is believed to have killed the girl's parents - so they weren't about to take any chances, they said.

Jayme was found Thursday outside the rural community of Gordon, where Patterson was holding her against her will in his home, authorities said.

There's no evidence Patterson knew the Closses or had previous contact with them, the sheriff said. He is alleged to have broken into her home in Barron, Wisconsin, before murdering her parents and abducting her.

"She hadn't taken a bath for weeks if at all", added Peter.

Closs was wearing a zip-up hoodie, leggings and ill-fitting men's sneakers, the Kasinskas said.

Jayme was hospitalized, and later released and reunited with her relatives and dog, Molly, in Barron.

Investigators believe the goal of the assailant was to kidnap Jayme, though Patterson has no apparent prior connection to the family.

Jake Patterson had, as it turns out, worked at the same turkey processing plant, but only for a single day three years ago.

Although Jayme had disappeared, investigators said they initially "keyed in" on the parents because the daughter was an innocent child who they didn't believe could be targeted.

Jeanne Nutter, who has a cabin in the Gordon area, was walking her dog on an isolated road around 4 p.m. when she saw Jayme out in the cold around dusk.

Naiberg said the family recorded video of her parents' funeral for her with hopes that it might give her a bit of closure. Nutter said Jayme did not have a coat or gloves.

Her aunt said Jayme slept well.

"I'm lost, and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Nutter recalled Jayme saying before she brought the girl to the Kasinskas' home. The FBI offered a cash reward for information on her whereabouts, and authorities urged hunters in the area to be on the lookout for clues.

Wearing an oversized shirt and shoes that were too big for her, she described a girl who seemed like she'd grabbed at whatever she could to make her escape, trying to survive as she ran through the icy wilderness.

When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.
