Jayme Closs 13 managed to escape a remote cabin where she had been held against her will after her parents were killed

The man suspected of kidnapping a northwestern Wisconsin teenager and killing her parents with a shotgun almost three months ago appears to have led an unremarkable existence, blending into the state's vast north woods. Neighbour Daphne Ronning told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the parents moved away but that Patterson and his older brother, Erik, continued to stay in the cabin.

Little is known about the 21-year-old man accused of kidnapping Wisconsin teenager Jayme Closs as the investigation is underway.

She went on to say she and her family will make sure Jayme is safe forever, and thanked everyone for their support.

Officers arrested 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson minutes later based on Jayme's description of his vehicle.

Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec says his office received a 911 call at about 4:30 p.m. saying Jayme Closs had been located.

"We have recovered a gun consistent with what was used at the scene of the initial homicide", said the sheriff.

However, authorities believe that Jake Patterson acted alone in kidnapping Jayme Closs and murdering her parents James, 56, and Denise Closs, 46.

Despite Erik Patterson's criminal record, few across the township seem to have heard of his family.

She said she and her husband once caught them siphoning gas.

Jayme Closs' escape from the rural house in Wisconsin helped break the case, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said.

James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons.

Additionally, authorities "don't believe there was a social media connection" between Closs and Patterson and are working to figure out "how he became aware of Jayme", Fitzgerald said. The killing of Jayme's family and her own disappearance had been a major subject of news and attention in the area. "(Jayme) don't know him from Adam.

"She said to us that, 'This person killed my parents and took me, ' " Kasinskas told CNN's Poppy Harlow.

Mr Fitzgerald noted police information was "limited" and Jayme was still being interviewed, but she had been medically cleared and released from hospital. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household. Jayme was the champion that finally said enough is enough", Fitzgerald said.
