BRUNSWICK, OH, The night of October 15th 2018, a 911 call in Barron County Wisconsin was made from the Closs home. When law enforcement showed up, they were faced with a horrific scene: James and Denise Closs laying dead in their house in pools of blood and their 13 year old daughter Jayme nowhere to be found.

Though no information could clearly show that Jayme was abducted, it was clear that the teen is missing and in danger,” Sheriff Fitzgerald of Barron County told Inside Edition.

After three months of searching, Closs was finally found, but not from the help of anyone. Closs was being held captive under the bed of 21 year old Jake Patterson. On January 21st 2019, Patterson left for the day and Jayme took the chance to try her escape. She ended up successful and found a neighbor who called the police. Hours later Closs was reunited with her family and Patterson was brought into custody, later to be charged with kidnapping and homicide.

“That is the will of a kid to survive…it’s amazing, the will of that 13-year-old girl to escape,” Fitzgerald said at a press conference.

While Closs was missing there was a $25,000 reward from a local turkey products company called Jennie-O for anyone that would assist in her coming home. However, Closs being the smart and determined girl she is, saved herself. It was argued whether she should get the reward or leave it with the police.

“I feel the award was directed more towards the community helping her escape…not her taking the risk to run away,” argued sophomore Alex Wilson.

Senior, Sophie Parente agreed with Wilson’s claim, “the money should go to someone who went out of their way to help her and if no one helped her, no one should get it.”

Whether the public agrees or not, it was announced on January 24th that Jennie-O would be giving Closs the $25,000 reward. It is not determined how Closs will use the money yet, but right now she is just enjoying being back to her normal life.
