Wisconsin kidnapping, killing suspect lived under the radar

She was found by a woman walking her dog on Thursday afternoon.

GORDON, United States: A 21-year-old man has been charged with murdering the parents of an American teen as part of a calculated plot to kidnap her, police said Friday, after 13-year-old Jayme Closs was found alive following three months in captivity.

She went on to say she and her family will make sure Jayme is safe forever, and thanked everyone for their support. "It will be a long road but we are family strong and we love this little girl so much!"

Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, told local media she could barely express her joy on hearing the news.

A 21-year-old man is suspected of killing her parents in October at their home in Barron, Wisconsin, then kidnapping the teen.

The terrified teenager was found by dog walker and social worker Jeanne Nutter, who said the girl begged for help and revealed her name.

Patterson was scheduled for an initial court appearance Monday.

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".

Police believe Patterson - said to have hidden the girl in the home he grew up in - killed the Wisconsin couple because he wanted to abduct their daughter.

Gordon, located in Douglas County, is about 60 miles north of the residence in Barron County at which Jayme's parents James and Denise were found dead on October 15.

"These funds are going to go towards the journey with the family as they help Jayme through whatever it may be...driving to take care of her, taking her to the clinic, medical costs or anything", said De Andriano.

Patterson was in the county jail Friday and is keeping quiet after talking on the day of his arrest.

"This is Jayme Closs!" the unnamed woman told Peter and Kristin Kasinskas, who live around 14km east of Gordon, Wisconsin.

Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg reiterated Saturday that the family had no connection with Patterson and didn't know him.

The sheriff said that he did not know if Jayme had been physically abused but that she was hospitalized overnight for observation and released. Nutter told ABC News that Jayme looked disheveled, cold, thin and wearing shoes too large for her feet. Investigators were still interviewing her, and she was "doing as well as circumstances allow", he said.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says Patterson extensively plotted the attack to the point where he shaved his head to avoid leaving forensic evidence behind.

Property records show that the cabin belonged to Patterson's father at the time of Jayme's disappearance.

Jake Thomas Patterson grew up in Gordon, a sprawling township of 645 people tucked into the snowy evergreen forests about 35 miles (55 kilometres) south of Lake Superior.

Sheriff Fitzgerald did say that he does not plan to hold any further press conferences on this case.

She said her reaction was "just disbelief - kind of shock that a kid we all knew could have done this".

The president of the Jennie-O Turkey store in Barron, where James and Denise Closs had worked for decades, said Patterson had been an employee there for a single day three years ago. "And to chase after that is, it's, I mean, she'll never go back to that".
