The charging document says that when Mr Patterson eventually stormed the family home by the front door, Jayme and her mother, Denise Closs, took refuge in the bathroom. "Jayme is the hero in this case".

The complaint also says Patterson shaved his face and head and showered prior to the attack.

"She is doing great", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told "Anderson Cooper Full Circle".

Jake Thomas Patterson has been jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges after allegedly killing a Wisconsin couple and abducting their teen daughter, Jayme Closs.

"Jayme was the hero in the case". "We can't be more proud of Jayme". Jayme was placed with Smith after leaving the hospital Friday.

Authorities say they are still puzzled as to why the suspect allegedly went to Barron to kidnap Jayme from the family home, where her parents were found dead, killed with a shotgun. I'll never, ever forget her screaming, "Sue! Sue!" "That's the million-dollar question, is why". That led to an intense search that ended Thursday when she was found alive - and Patterson was arrested - about 70 miles from her home. "I didn't want to sleep that night because I wanted to make sure when I woke up she was still home", Tremblay said. "She kept saying, 'I'm Jayme, I'm Jayme'". They heard a gunshot and knew Patterson had killed her father. "And we got to bring her home". The woman took Jayme to a nearby house where neighbors called 911.

Patterson is set to make his first court appearance Monday after he was captured Thursday and booked on murder and kidnapping charges.

Patterson, who was arrested January 10 after Closs escaped from a remote Gordon home where she was being held, is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the October 15 deaths of Jayme's parents. Patterson broke down the bathroom door, told her to hang up and taped Jayme's mouth shut. It is about a one-hour, 50-minute drive from Minneapolis, and is about 50 minutes from Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

"In my mind, I said, 'oh, that can't be the same person, '" she said.

When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.

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.

He may have worked at another business in Barron but that hasn't been confirmed, the sheriff said. Her grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told The Associated Press that Jayme told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents she doesn't know Patterson at all.

The two women hovered around Jayme as they waited for the police to arrive.

He's scheduled to appear in court at 3:30 p.m.

Nutter knew of the girl's disappearance, which was reported nationally, and intensely so in the state.

"As a family we will get through all of the healing process Jayme has", Smith wrote. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves. "We gotta let her call the shots right now".

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 - the company's president said. Per the complaint, he said he saw Jayme get on the bus and "he knew that was the girl he was going to take".

A criminal complaint says a Wisconsin man hid 13-year-old Jayme Closs under a bed for hours at a time and warned her that "bad things could happen to her" if anyone found her there. Nutter went to leave, only to return to the cabin to put on anti-slip cleats over her shoes.
