Grandfather: Rescued teen in ‘good spirits’
The grandfather of a 13-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl who authorities say escaped a man who killed her parents and held her captive for three months said Sunday she’s in “exceptionally good spirits.”
Jayme Closs on Thursday fled the cabin near the small town of Gordon where she said she had been imprisoned. She approached a woman walking a dog and asked for her help.
Police officers arrested 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson minutes later based on Jayme’s description of his vehicle. Authorities are holding Patterson on suspicion of kidnapping and homicide.
