A ‘Glorious Day’ in Jayme Closs’ Hometown, Suspect Jake Thomas Patterson Named: The Rundown


Jayme Closs is alive, and new details are emerging. The 13-year-old Wisconsin girl, who went missing in October from her Barron home, where her parents were found shot dead, turned up about 60 miles away near Gordon Thursday after fleeing her captor. In what Barron Area School District Superintendent Diane Tremblay called “a glorious day,” Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald led a Friday morning press conference aired live on, revealing that Jayme was now in the “comforting embrace of law enforcement” and that a suspect has been named: 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson. Details:

  • Arrest: Fitzgerald said Jayme had been Patterson’s target and was taken “against her will” on Oct. 15. After she escaped from her abductor, she gave police a description of the suspect’s vehicle, and he was pulled over shortly after. Patterson has been charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of Jayme’s parents, as well as one count of kidnapping.
  • Recuperating: Fitzgerald adds that Jayme was examined at a local hospital and was doing “good,” and that she was being prepped for “reunification” with family. She’s expected to be back in Barron sometime Friday.
