Jayme Closs rescuer: "The stars were aligned"

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

Investigators believe Patterson broke into James and Denise Closs' home near Barron on October 15, gunned the couple down and abducted 13-year-old Jayme Closs.

Police have praised the bravery of Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who was held captive for 88 days, saying it was her "will" that broke the case.

As Jayme Closs starts her road to recovery following her kidnapping, investigators are trying to piece together what happened during the almost three months she was in captivity. "I think all of our prayers is what brought her home", said Geri Schoenecker, another church member. Did he take things with her? It appeared Patterson hid her from his friends and other people, the sheriff said without elaborating.

Kasinskas said she and her husband put their two children in the basement with the dogs, "and told them to watch the TV until we said it was OK to come back upstairs".

Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald, leading the investigation, has said he wants to know why Jayme was targeted, in an attack he has described as being calculated. They claim Patterson shaved his head to avoid being recognised or associated with the crime.

Jake Patterson had, as it turns out, worked at the same turkey processing plant, but only for a single day three years ago. Her family insists they don't know the man. Authorities say Patterson acted alone. It's unclear how Patterson became aware of Jayme, and authorities have found no evidence of any interactions between them. "She did not go into detail about how she got out of the house or anything like that".

Kasinkas called 911, and eventually Nutter spoke to the dispatcher. When the dispatcher called back, a voicemail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs, 46. "I tingle because I have been praying for her since it happened, I don't know the family personally but it's just wonderful", said member, Larry Leff.

"My neighbor and I ... legitimately thought someone was coming for her", Kasinskas said.

The two women hovered around Jayme as they waited for the police to arrive.

Ownership of a remote cabin where a Wisconsin teenager was apparently held during a almost 3-month disappearance passed to a credit union soon after the girl's abduction.

That background was essential when Closs approached her on the street, told her who she was, and that she needed help.

Nutter and Jayme went to the closest house, the home of Kristin and Peter Kasinskas, and they called 911.

An empty box of female adult diapers found on the premises of Jake Patterson's property. He was being held in Barron County's jail on preliminary charges of intentional homicide and kidnapping, and will have an initial court appearance Monday.

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

Jayme was hospitalized, and later released and reunited with her relatives and dog, Molly, in Barron.

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

"Now it's about getting him the harshest sentence possible", Jayme's aunt Kelly Engelhart said.
