Gordon Residents Say Jayme Closs Kidnapping Suspect Kept To Himself

Jayme Closs has been missing since October

Jayme Closs has been missing since October

The grandfather of a northwestern Wisconsin girl whom authorities say was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead said Saturday that the family has no connection to the suspect and doesn't understand why he targeted her, deepening a mystery that has captivated the state for months.

Elizabeth Smart sent words of encouragement to Jayme Closs, just a day after authorities found the 13-year-old who was missing for almost three months.

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, is being held on two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping.

"At this time, nothing in this case shows the suspect knew anyone at the Closs home or at any time had contact with anyone in the Closs family", Fitzgerald said. "I'd probably faint because I would be so happy to see her", Tuders said. "[Jayme] don't know him from Adam". [But] he knew what he was doing.

Patterson's lawyers Charles Glynn and Richard Jones said in a statement they consider the situation "very tragic" and that they are relying on the court system to treat their client fairly.

Patterson, who had no previous criminal record in Wisconsin, is accused of carefully planning his attack - specifically targeting the young teen for reasons that remained unclear.

Investigators are trying to determine how Jayme escaped from Patterson's home, Fitzgerald said.

Patterson grew up in Gordon, a sprawling township of 645 people tucked into the snowy evergreen forests about 35 miles (55 kilometers) south of Lake Superior. It's wild country; roadside signs admonish motorists to share the pavement with ATVs.

Patterson was in the county jail Friday and is keeping quiet after talking on the day of his arrest. Authorities did not offer any details about the conditions of her captivity or how she had managed to escape.

The president of the Jennie-O Turkey store in Barron, where James and Denise Closs had worked for decades, said Patterson had been an employee for a single day three years ago.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, citing neighbours, reported that Patterson had been raised in Gordon. She said she and her husband once caught them siphoning gas.

"It was like I was seeing a ghost", Mr Kasinskas told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Her grandfather Robert Naiberg said he had been praying for months for the call he received on Thursday.

Jeanne Nutter says Jayme is the hero in this story.

Another aunt, Sue Naiberg Allard, posted that Jayme got "the most awaited hug ever".

Kasinskas said. Police were called - but before they arrived, Jayme told them that she'd been held in the Gordon area, near Kasinskas' home, by someone who killed her parents on the night she disappeared.

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

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

Jayme told the woman she had escaped from a cabin where she was being held, not far from Ms Nutter's home.

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

He added: 'She did not talk about why or how.

An alert stated that she was taken from her home by "unknown individual (s), likely with a gun".

The Closs' door had been shot open; Patterson had shaved his head so as not to leave hair behind, Fitzgerald said.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says Patterson's goal was to kidnap Jayme but that the family didn't know him.

Both the woman and the neighbor recognized the teen immediately on Thursday due to the enormous public campaign following her disappearance, Fitzgerald said. "And then that's when I said 'This child needs to be someplace safe and you need to get her there, '" Nutter told reporters. "Either digitally or physically, or that he knew them".
