Wisconsin kidnapping, killing suspect lived under the radar

Jayme Closs: Suspect named in kidnapping and murder case

Jake Patterson, 21, allegedly shot and killed Jayme's parents.

The incident unfolded at around 1 am local time on October 15, when police received an emergency call from Closs' home.

On Thursday, authorities announced Closs, 13, who disappeared in October, was found alive.

"Jayme is talking. She communicated with our team up there", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said on Friday.

Barron County district attorney Brian Right said he planned to file a criminal complaint against Mr Patterson next week. She told cops she met him three weeks earlier on an "online chat site".

Following his arrest, Patterson's family, including his mother and brother, "shut down their social media accounts", the Star Tribune reported.

Patterson is unemployed, although worked for one day at the Jennie-O Turkey Store in Barron, where the Closs' worked for 27 years.

The Patterson family moved to Gordon about 15 years ago and Jake and Erik were raised there and attended Minong High School, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

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

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

The grandfather of a northwest United States girl held captive for months says the family has no connection to the man suspected of kidnapping her and killing her parents. They did not find Jayme or a suspect or gun, they said at the time. He said she was largely silent and did not talk about how Patterson had kept her confined. When the dispatcher called back, a voicemail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs.

It shows her with Jennifer Smith, one of Closs' aunts, and the girl's dog Molly.

The search and tips had not yielded any clues before Jayme reappeared. "I think she was doing OK despite the circumstances", she said. Nutter said Jayme did not have a coat or gloves.

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

Nutter and Jayme went to the closest house, the home of Kristin and Peter Kasinskas.

"She said to us that, 'This person killed my parents and took me, '" Kasinskas said.

"I was elected to keep people safe and not having that unknown out there", Fitzgerald said on Fox & Friends. "I mean, it's sad when you hear a story that your child is deceased, I don't want to hear that".

"Call 911!" the dog walker told Kasinskas.

Jayme Closs was found alive by the suspect's neighbours on Thursday.

Jayme Closs' suspected kidnapper had no prior criminal record, however, detectives are now looking into his brother who was convicted of sexually assaulting a minor. He says Jayme told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents that she didn't know Patterson at all.

Jake Patterson is in custody on two charges of first degree intentional homicide in the deaths of Jayme's parents and one count of kidnapping.

Jayme's aunt, Sue Allard, told the Star Tribune: "It's the news we've been waiting on for three months".

Mr Fitzgerald noted police information was "limited" and Jayme was still being interviewed, but she had been medically cleared and released from hospital.

"She is doing great", Fitzgerald told CNN's "Anderson Cooper Full Circle".

"Jayme was the hero in the case".
