A man suspected of kidnapping a Wisconsin teenager and killing her parents is expected to be formally charged Monday, and the charging documents could shed light on what investigators believe the young man knew about his victims, his motives and tactics.
But a closer look by The Post provides potential details about the living conditions Closs was forced to endure while in captivity since October, when alleged abductor Jake Patterson, 21, shot her parents and snatched her from her home some 80 miles away.
Neighbor Jeanne Nutter brought Closs to the Kasinskas' after she found the girl wandering in a daze on Thursday.
Chris Fitzgerald is the Barron County Sheriff and said Patterson had "specific intentions to take Jayme, but how he became aware of and chose her will be part of the criminal charges".
After murdering both her parents it is believed Mr Patterson then abducted Jayme and took her to his home about 120km away in Gordon.
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.
"She told me who she was and then that's when I said this child needs to be someplace safe and you need to get her there now", Nutter said. Did he take things with her?More news: Cargo plane crashes in Iran with 10 onboard
"In my mind, I said, 'oh, that can't be the same person, '" she said. "And we got to bring her home".
"The officer told us to get away from the windows and get downstairs", Kasinskas said.
The sheriff calls it "a very well-planned out attack".
Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron.
"This family has always had this fantastic strength, they've always been there for each other long before this happened", she said. Authorities say Patterson acted alone.
Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there. Nutter went to leave, only to return to the cabin to put on anti-slip cleats over her shoes.
Shortly before 1 a.m. that night, 911 dispatchers got a call during which they could hear yelling, but no one talked to the dispatcher. The call came in from Denise Closs' cell phone.More news: DNA pioneer James Watson loses honours over race remarks
Jayme told them Patterson wasn't going to be home until midnight, Kasinskas recalled. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves.
Police arrived to find the door kicked in, Jayme missing and her parents dead.
Minutes later, the police radio cackled: Patterson had been apprehended. Prosecutors are set to formally charge him with two counts of intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping before court begins.
Investigators say there's no evidence of any online interactions between him and Jayme.
The girl has been reunited with relatives, who shared pictures showing her smiling with her aunt and dog.
Her hair "was like a big dreadlock - like she'd been laying down", Kristin told The Post at her Wisconsin home.
