Kidnapped American teen found alive months after parents' murder

Kidnapped American teen found alive months after parents' murder”

Jake Thomas Patterson, of the Town of Gordon, Wis., who has been jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges in the October killing of a Wisconsin couple and abduction of their teen daughter, Jayme Closs.

The sheriff said Gordon, where Jayme was found, was not on authorities' radar. Jayme Closs turned up in Gordon, which is roughly 70 miles north of the girl's home.

Jake Patterson was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of kidnapping, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters at a news conference on Friday.

Fitzgerald said investigators believe the girl was "the only target".

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. Authorities are not looking for any additional suspects. She is being interviewed by law enforcement and is expected to be back in Baron County by Friday afternoon, according to the sheriff.

Jeanne Nutter was walking her dog on Thursday afternoon when Jayme approached her for help and revealed her identity.

A woman who helped a Wisconsin girl who'd been missing for three months following her parents' deaths says the girl told her she'd been held against her will.

ABC, CBS, CNN , Fox Broadcasting, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, MSNBC and NBC have all said they would air the rebuttal. Trump has offered concessions, agreeing to build the barrier with steel rather than concrete. "That's how we became America.

During the 20 minutes Jayme was in their home, Kasinskas and her husband, Peter, tried to make her feel more comfortable, they said.

"For 88 days I have said we would work tirelessly to bring Jayme Closs home".

The woman who was the first to encounter a missing Wisconsin girl who vanished after her parents were killed says the teen called out to her for help, said she was lost and grabbed onto her before telling her who she was. Jayme was quiet, her emotions "pretty flat", Peter Kasinskas said. "My jaw just went to the floor". "She seemed kind of in shock and kind of timid, but she did talk to us a little bit, and she came in and sat down in our living room and was able to have a conversation with us", Kristin Kasinskas told the TODAY Show.

Patterson lived just three doors down from Kasinskas, but Kasinskas said she didn't realize it until police identified him as the suspect. Kasinskas says she recognized the name but didn't know the person.

Jayme went missing on October 15, the day her parents, James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were found shot to death at the family's home near Barron, Wis., a town about 75 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told the AP that he had been praying for months for the call he received about his granddaughter being found alive.

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches in the effort to find Jayme.

Jayme told the woman said she had walked away from a cabin where she'd been held captive, a cabin not far from Nutter's home.

Jayme was reportedly wearing shoes too large for her feet, and refused offers of food or water.

Jayme's school district held a "Gathering of Hope" for their missing student at a local high school on 22 October, while a funeral for the Closs parents was held on 27 October. From what she told them, they believed she was there for most of her disappearance.

Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, told the Star Tribune that she could barely express her joy after learning the news Thursday night.

"Praise the Lord", Ms Allard said between sobs.

"I thought, 'Good for her she escaped, ' " he said. "I just can't wait".
