BARRON, WISCONSIN - Jayme Closs, 13, who was rescued January 10, 2019 after being abducted in October 2018, rejoined family members on Friday. Jayme's parents, James, 56, and Denise, 46, were killed during their daughter's kidnapping. Their bodies were discovered October 15 after a mysterious 911 call. Their daughter, Jayme, was missing when police arrived, leading to an 88-day manhunt. At a news conference, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald would not share details of what happened to Jayme during her confinement. However, Jake Patterson, 21, is being charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one of kidnapping. He is scheduled to appear in court on January 14, 2019 to enter a plea. It is unclear if he has hired a lawyer.
