Ex-kidnapping victims: Jayme Closs needs space, time to heal

Ex-kidnapping victims: Jayme Closs needs space, time to heal

FOX 9 also spoke with a teacher's aid who said she never really saw Patterson apply himself to school, but he consistently aced his tests. "So, we're looking for receipts, where the suspect may have been over the last 88 days".

Investigators are trying to determine how Jayme escaped from Patterson's home, Fitzgerald said.

The suspect made "great efforts to minimize his forensic footprint at the crime scene", Fitzgerald said, such as shaving his head to avoid leaving behind hair evidence.

According to a neighbor, Patterson's parents moved away but the two sons continued to use the home.

While the young man worked at the same meat processing plant as Jayme's parents almost three years ago, he did so for only one day and police said there is no evidence that there was any contact between them.

Thousands of volunteers and hundreds of law enforcement officers had been searching around the clock for her after her parents were found shot dead in their home, the front door open and the girl gone.

Still, Straub says Jayme's case gives several lessons. As a family we will get through all of the healing process Jayme has.

In a yearbook from Patterson's senior year, he said his post-school plans were to join the Marine Corps and his senior quote was, "Finally done with school".

Fitzgerald said there is no evidence Patterson knew Jayme or her family or had been in contact with her on social media.

"She is going to have to grieve the loss of her parents and also come to terms with the fact she was abducted, escaped and whatever (other) hell she went through", said Beers. The only link between them is that Jake worked for a single day at the Jennie-O turkey plant where Jayme's parents were employed for 27 years. When the dispatcher called back, a voicemail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs.

Knight said she went through a range of emotions when she got out: sadness, fear, shame, and wondering if she would ever trust anyone again. 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.

With Jayme, the nation knows her, her captor and will learn of any charges.

'I thought "Good for her, she escaped"', he recalled.

Less than 15 minutes after Closs' rescue, Patterson was taken into custody after police pulled him over, based on Closs' description of his vehicle.

Relying on what Mr Fitzgerald called "the will of a kid to survive", a dishevelled Closs escaped the house in the tiny town of Gordon where she had been held captive, about 100km north of her home in Barron.

"There's always hope for Rosie, I never give up", John Daniel said Friday.

She said they stole things and spent time in foster care.

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me, '" said another neighbor, Kristin Kasinskas. Prosecutors anticipate filing homicide and kidnapping charges against him on Monday.

Fitzgerald said it's not clear whether Patterson, who is unemployed, owns the home, or how he kept Jayme there. "It was great to know she was next to me all night", Jennifer Smith posted on Facebook on Saturday. So now, "she needs to feel.in control and experience her memories in a way that. doesn't retrigger" her trauma.

At Season's Cafe in Barron, that feeling is visible right below the daily special sign it reads, "A blessed day for Barron - Jayme found alive".
