Kidnapped American teen found alive months after parents´ murder

Fitzgerald says investigators have recovered more than one gun, including a shotgun consistent with the type of gun used to kill Jayme's parents, James and Denise Closs.

Jayme disappeared from her home near Barron after someone blasted their way in and shot her parents, James and Denise Closs, on October 15.

The 21-year-old is being held on two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, over the murder of Jayme's parents.

Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told the AP on Friday that he'd been praying for months for the call he received Thursday about his granddaughter being found alive.

She said she did not know where she was or anything about Gordon, and Peter Kasinkas said she was quiet and her emotions were "pretty flat".

Two public defenders representing the suspect in the Jayme Closs case say they are "relying on the integrity of our judicial system to ensure that everyone's rights are protected and respected". (But) he knew what he was doing. "It was great to know she was next to me all night". Jayme had not been seen since her parents were murdered there on October 15.

Jayme's aunt, Jennifer Smith, posted the photos on Facebook.

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

After the killings, Jayme was taken to a remote property near the small town of Gordon and is in the process of telling police how she managed to escape.

Smart called Closs fearless, strong, and a powerful survivor - but also says there is a long road ahead.

Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, told the Star Tribune newspaper that she could barely express her joy after learning the news Thursday night.

Kristin Kasinskas told CNN that Jayme told them that she had been held captive not far away.

Sheriff Fitzgerald said investigators were trying to figure out what happened to Jayme during her captivity and why she was seized, and gave no details on how she escaped except to say Patterson was not home at the time.

That led to an intense search that ended Thursday when the she was found alive - and Patterson was arrested - about 70 miles from her home. Jayme, officials said, had escaped from a home while Patterson was out.

Fitzgerald says authorities don't know of any social media connection between Patterson and the girl. We believe he acted alone.

Jayme was reportedly wearing shoes too large for her feet, and refused offers of food or water. No one pressed her to talk, he said, adding that Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and doctors advised them to let her speak when she's ready.

Patterson has no criminal history in Wisconsin but his brother has had multiple run-ins with the law, including convictions for marijuana possession, bail jumping and sexual assault, online court records show.

Patterson was the authorities´ only suspect, described as unemployed and a long-time resident of rural Gordon.

"I need help", Jayme said in a soft voice, according to Nutter.

Despite Erik Patterson's criminal record, few across the township seem to have heard of his family. "And to chase after that is, it's, I mean, she'll never go back to that".

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches in the effort to find Jayme. 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.
