Jayme Closs: authorities search for motive in 'tragic' kidnapping case

Jayme Closs 13 managed to escape a remote cabin where she had been held against her will after her parents were killed

"And so Jayme gets to set the pace of what we do, how we interact, when she wants to do, what she wants to do - and we'll make sure that that happens".

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.

Jayme was pictured smiling alongside her relieved aunt Jennifer Naiberg Smith, who gave permission for the image to be used after their emotional reunion.

Patterson is due in court on Monday where he'll be formally charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping, the official said.

The 13-year-old was missing when police arrived, leading to an intense manhunt that ended when she was found alive Thursday about 70 miles from her home. He worked for one day in 2016 at the same Jennie-O turkey plant in Barron as Jayme's parents.

Naiberg, Jayme's grandfather, said he spent a few hours with her on Friday.

"He was just really quiet whenever I'd see him in the hallways and stuff", said Hannah Kroeze, who went to the same school as Patterson.

Girl with Uncommon Situation Couldn't Hear Male Voices
According to the Daily Mail , she made the discovery after she woke up one morning and couldn't hear her boyfriend talking. It is hard to detect, as both patients and medical professionals are often unaware of the condition.


"Jayme is safe!" Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said.

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me, '" said another neighbor, Kristin Kasinskas.

Her alleged captor, 21-year-old Jake Patterson, was soon captured driving nearby.

As for the hero herself, Jayme is doing well, and her Aunt Jennifer posted photos on Saturday saying she is so happy to have her home.

Little is known about the 21-year-old man accused of kidnapping Wisconsin teenager Jayme Closs as the investigation is underway. She said his parents moved away but the suspect and his brothers continued to use the home.

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

There's no evidence Patterson knew the Closses or had previous contact with them, the sheriff said.

MCTS drivers have found nine lost or missing children in recent years, according to their website. Ivic has been in Milwaukee for 12 years - and an employee of MCTS for five years.


Patterson took such measures as shaving his head beforehand to avoid leaving evidence at the scene, the sheriff said. "She did not talk about why or how". "Believe me, so are we".

Fitzgerald said he was not yet aware of any plans for a community gathering to welcome Jayme home.

'We did get a tip on a sibling that has some criminal record.

Fitzgerald says authorities don't know of any social media connection between Patterson and the girl.

"It's never going to be easy, but with the correct support, the correct people to talk to and people there who love you, she's going to be able to survive and thrive", said Beers, who was raised by a foster family after her rescue because of abuse she had suffered within her own family before the kidnapping.

In November, the sheriff said he kept similar cases in the back of his mind as he worked to find Closs, including the abduction of Elizabeth Smart, who was 14 when she was taken from her Salt Lake City home in 2002.

It had been almost three months since she went missing from her home in Barron, where her parents were found dead.
