  • Jake Patterson appears for his preliminary hearing at Barron County Circuit Court in Barron Wis

21-year-old Jake Patterson pleaded guilty to murdering Jayme's parents before holding her hostage for almost 3 months.

According to a criminal complaint, Patterson was driving to work in October when he spotted Jayme getting on a school bus near her rural home outside Barron, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northeast of Minneapolis.

Patterson's defense lawyer said "a lifetime of social isolation" led him to commit the crimes.

Jayme finally escaped on January 10 while Patterson was away. Denise told him she had called 911 and that police were on the way.

The 21-year-old pleaded guilty in March to two counts of first-degree intentional homicide for shooting and killing Closs' parents on October 15, 2018, and one count of kidnapping for taking the couple's only child from her home in rural Barron, Wisconsin.

Patterson has pleaded guilty to kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs and killing James and Denise Closs. Authorities also dismiss a tip placing Jayme's whereabouts in Miami as "not credible", and say they believe the girl is in danger. She had been kept there against her will for 88 days.

Patterson is facing a life sentence. He faces two consecutive life sentences for the two murder charges alone. "I was smarter." She said she wanted to see Patterson "locked up forever".

Patterson's attorneys, Richard Jones and Charles Glynn, told the judge that Patterson was isolated and that he overreacted to loneliness.

Defense attorneys said Patterson told them on January 13 he was prepared to go to prison for the rest of his life for "the terrible things he had done", and argued he had showed some remorse following his arrest. "But he was wrong". Patterson told her that if anyone found out she was there, bad things would happen to her, the complaint said.

The judge read statements that Patterson wrote in jail in which he said he had succumbed to fantasies about keeping a young girl and torturing and controlling her.

Twenty-one-year-old Jake Patterson pleaded guilty in March to two counts of intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping.

Before handing down the sentencing, the judge said "There is not a doubt in my mind you are one of the most unsafe men to walk on this planet".

"Because of this monster, Jayme won't have her mom and dad at her dance recitals", Mike Closs, Jayme's uncle, said in court.

In February, Jayme and her family released a statement saying the support she has received from everyone had "been a source of great comfort to her".

A Wisconsin man could spend the rest of his life behind bars for kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs and killing her parents.

Jayme escaped January 10, approaching a neighboring cabin owner for help.

A judge will sentence Patterson on Friday. Wisconsin doesn't have the death penalty. It's expected to last a couple hours as Jayme's family members share how they were impacted by Patterson's actions.
