Accused captor of 13-year-old Wisconsin girl due in court
Tuesday, 15 January 2019 (Reuters) - The man accused of kidnapping a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl after murdering her parents is due in court on Monday to face charges, days after the teen ended her 88-day-ordeal by escaping the rural home where she was held hostage. Jake Patterson, 21, was arrested shortly after Jayme Closs' rescue on Thursday, but police have so far said little about what might have motivated him to target the girl and her parents. The parents were discovered shot dead in their home in October, sparking a massive search for the missing teen.
Twenty-one-year-old Jake Patterson has been charged with the kidnapping of 13-year-old Jayme Closs and the murder of her parents, authorities said on Friday, a day after the girl escaped following three months of captivity. Colette Luke has more.
