JAYME CLOSS

As the details of Jayme Closs’ abduction and captivity continue to emerge, we just can’t even imagine…forced to spend three months held against her will in the cabin of a creepy, mentally disturbed stranger after having witnessed the deaths of her parents?? Hidden under a bed with no food, water, or access to a toilet for as long as 12 hours? Likely sexually assaulted? Awful. The good news is that 13-year old Closs escaped, is alive, and has reunited with family members (pictured w/aunt, above). The suspect, 21-year-old Jake Patterson — a man not on police’s radar, with no criminal record but allegedly with an obsession he’d developed for Closs after he spotted her boarding a school bus, confessed to the horrific crimes. Patterson is now in jail on a $5 million bail, charged with murder, kidnapping and armed burglary.  If convicted, he faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole. Next court date is February 6th.
