Jake Patterson, suspect in Jayme Closs case, due in court

Smith is now acting as the 13-year-old's legal guardian and shared a touching post to the "Healing for Jayme Closs" Facebook page assuring that she and the family will do everything to support Closs's healing.

The interior of Jake Patterson's house, where Jayme Closs was held captive for 88 days. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household". "We realized he was in the neighborhood coming back for her".

USA teen Jayme Closs defied the odds and stunned the world after surviving an 88-day abduction by a man who is believed to have murdered her parents in her home in rural Wisconsin.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters on Friday that Patterson took measures to avoid leaving evidence at the Closs family's home, including shaving his head before breaking in.

Her hair "was like a big dreadlock - like she'd been laying down", Kristin told The Post at her Wisconsin home.

"It's unreal how everybody in the afternoon, about four hours, got her room ready for her", Allard told "GMA". He's says she's "doing exceptionally well for what she went through". "When they got back, it was all done".

Nutter told reporters she knew the young girl needed help and took her inside.

Jayme has been staying with an aunt in Barron since she escaped.


They made a short statement and then answered questions after meeting with Patterson. "What a great feeling to have her home".

Naiberg said the family recorded video of her parents' funeral for her with hopes that it might give her a bit of closure. But they were still concerned he might be after her.

Closs was wearing a zip-up hoodie, leggings and ill-fitting men's sneakers, the Kasinskas said.

Smith insists that Closs' family will rally around her as she heals. "And we got to bring her home". Jayme wasn't really talking on her own.

The teen had been missing for nearly three months when she was found on a deserted backroad in Gordon, Wisconsin, after being kidnapped by Jake Patterson, 21.

Little has been revealed about Jayme's ordeal since her abduction in mid-October, although more details could come Monday when Patterson is expected to be charged and make his first appearance in court.

"This is a tragic situation from every perspective", Glynn told "GMA".

Investigators believe the goal of the assailant was to kidnap Jayme, though Patterson has no apparent prior connection to the family. "I don't know much about them besides being warned about them being troublemakers". "Anyone who could do something like this deserves a max sentence". "He has lawyers, and I do not want to listen to them".
