Jayme Closs’ aunt shares how teen spent her first day home

Jake Thomas Patterson is accused of kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and killing her parents during a home invasion

The grandfather of a 13-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl says she's in "exceptionally good spirits" after being found almost three months after authorities say she was kidnapped during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

The suspect, Jake Thomas Patterson, a 21-year-old Gordon resident, was arrested shortly after Jayme was discovered last Thursday.

But Closs' family are focussed exclusively on her wellbeing as they help her settle back into life, though the heartbreak of her parents' deaths still weighs heavy on them all. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves.

Records show that defendant Jake Thomas Patterson's father transferred the title of the cabin near Gordon to Superior Choice Credit Union on October 23, eight days after the October 15 attack at the Closs family's home near Barron, which is about 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Gordon.

According to a Facebook page that was originally set up when Jayme disappeared but is now titled Healing for Jayme Closs says that if you would like to write any letters or well wishes to Jayme or her family, you can send it to Light the Way Home for Jayme Closs at PO box 539 in Rice Lake, WI 54868.

"I'm lost, and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Nutter recalled Jayme saying before she brought the girl to the Kasinskas' home.

"We believe Jayme was the target, and he was getting rid of possible barriers to taking her", Fitzgerald said. "Thank you is all I can say because I think God got sick of us nagging him so he answered our prayers", Trowbridge added.

Jake Patterson, 21, has been charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping over the incident. Authorities have said Patterson's goal the night he broke into the Closs' home was to kidnap Jayme, but it's unclear how Patterson became aware of her, especially since he lived an hour away. She is now Jayme's legal guardian. The call came in from Denise Closs' cell phone. She managed to escape on Thursday with the help from a woman walking her dog.

Robert was there to greet Jayme when she returned home.

Her church family wants to make sure she knows she has support in the coming days, weeks, months and even years ahead. "I don't know much about them besides being warned about them being troublemakers".

Police arrived to find the door kicked in, Jayme missing and her parents dead.

His first court appearance is set for Monday at 3:30 p.m.

When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.

"She looked thin", Nutter said. "What a great feeling to have her home".
