Granddad: Wisconsin girl has no link to suspected kidnapper

Missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs was reunited with her family after being held captive by the man who allegedly murdered her parents

Closs turned up almost three months after she was snatched by a man who fatally shot her parents so he could kidnap their daughter, according to law enforcement authorities.

Little is known about the 21-year-old man accused of kidnapping Wisconsin teenager Jayme Closs as the investigation is underway.

Investigators believe Jayme was at the home when her parents were killed, and that Patterson abducted her from there, Fitzgerald said.

Jake Thomas Patterson was arrested on two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping, police said on Friday.

Jayme Closs was found alive by the suspect's neighbours on Thursday.

The sheriff said he didn't know whether Jayme had been physically abused.

The grandfather of a USA girl who was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead says the family has no connection to the suspect and doesn't understand why he targeted her, deepening a mystery that has captivated the nation.

Despite Erik Patterson's criminal record, few across the township seem to have heard of his family.

The first published photo of Jayme on Friday shows her smiling with her dog, Molly, and her aunt. Police are still investigating and say 'she is doing as well as circumstances allow'.

Elizabeth Smart says she has followed the case since Closs disappeared in October. Did he take things with her?

When they arrived, Kasinskas fed Jayme while they waited around half an hour for the police to arrive, Kasinskas told MPR. "So, we're looking for receipts, where the suspect may have been over the last 88 days".

The note found in his home reads in part, "the Davis police are hitting me with ultrasonic waves meant to keep dogs from barking". After reloading a second time, the gunman approached a fire rescue squad, prompting a firefighter to run.

It is a hard situation, I can't put myself in his shoes. "But I believe that it doesn't matter who he picks". He's going to be playing for either team. "I think that's his best position".

Patterson had worked for less than two days at a turkey processing plant where Closs' parents worked, but the sheriff said he did not have any contact with them. "I think she was doing OK despite the circumstances", she said.

According to Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec, Gordon police pinpointed and arrested Mr Patterson 11 minutes later thanks to a description of his vehicle that Jayme provided.

"He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know (her parents) Denise or Jim", Naiberg said. "We can't be more proud of Jayme".

It appears Patterson went to the Closs home with the intention of taking Jayme, Fitzgerald said.

At a press conference yesterday Barron County Sheriff Fitzgerald said the teen told the Kasinskas 'he killed my parents and took me'.

For months, thousands of people joined search parties as investigators received thousands of tips.

Heather Simmers of Murfreesboro, Tennessee is also leaning on hope to find her missing son, Devin Bond, 18. The FBI offered a cash reward for information on her whereabouts, and authorities urged hunters in the area to be on the lookout for clues.

"I'm lost and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Jayme told Nutter. Charges are expected against Patterson on Monday, when he is expected to make his initial appearance in court. That woman brought Jayme to the home of neighbors Peter and Kristin Kasinskas.

"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". "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

Jeanne said her golden retriever Henry wanted to go out on a walk and for that, she gives thanks to her goofy dog, she told USA Today.
