Jayme Closs kidnapping: Police investigate mystery motive behind suspect's abduction of teen

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, was arrested on Thursday for "targeting" and kidnapping 13-year-old girl Jayme and horrifically shooting dead her mom and dad in their Barron, Wisconsin home on October 15.

As Jayme Closs starts her long road toward recovery following her kidnapping ordeal, investigators are working to piece together what happened during the almost three months she was in captivity.

Jeff Closs, Jayme's uncle, said that the teen's return was shocking.

Police said that Patterson had no contact with Jayme or her family before the murders but the primary motive was the abduction of the teenager.

Patterson faces two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for the killing of Closs' parents and one count of kidnapping, Fitzgerald said Friday.

Patterson took measures to avoid leaving evidence at the scene, including shaving his head beforehand, and a shotgun was recovered from the home where Jayme was believed held, Fitzgerald said.

Investigators say 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson shot James and Denise Closs to death in their home near Barron on October 15 and took their daughter, 13-year old Jayme Closs.

Police believe Patterson - said to have hidden the girl in the home he grew up in - killed the Wisconsin couple because he wanted to abduct their daughter.

Elizabeth Smart posted on Instagram after Closs was found calling her courageous, strong and a powerful survivor.

She said she and her husband once caught them siphoning gas. But the sheriff said it did not appear Patterson interacted with the couple during his brief time there. Did he take things with her?

Jayme provided a description of Patterson's vehicle. Police say he was out on the streets looking for Jayme after she escaped.

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. "She said she did not know him".

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said investigators are trying to figure out what happened to Jayme during her captivity and why she was seized.

Kidnapping victim Jayme Closs spent her first night in her new home next to her aunt, according to a Facebook post Saturday.

Police always said they believed Jayme was still alive.

Closs was missing for almost three months when she approached a stranger in the small, isolated town of Gordon and pleaded for help.

"I'm lost and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Jayme told Nutter, the woman told the station. Charles Glynn and Richard Jones said in a statement that they await Patterson's initial court appearance and the filing of charges against him on Monday.

Nutter took Jayme to the closest house, the home of Kristin and Peter Kasinkas, and they called 911. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

Mr Fitzgerald noted police information was "limited" and Jayme was still being interviewed, but she had been medically cleared and released from hospital. "And to chase after that is, it's, I mean, she'll never go back to that".

"Jayme had a pretty good night sleep it was great to know she was next to me all night what a great feeling to have her home", Smith said.
