    The defendant stated that, when his father would come to the house, which was typically on Saturdays, he would make J.L.C. go under the bed where he again would put the totes and the weights in front of it. The defendant stated he would turn up the radio in his room to cover up any noise that J.L.C. might make.

    Jake didn't even know her name on that night

    " he stopped behind a school bus on Hwy 8 one day and saw Jayme get out. "The defendant stated, when he saw her, he knew that was the girl he was going to take."

    "Patterson said he never met Jayme on any social media sites and only learned her name after kidnapped her and got back to his house"

    " Patterson admitted that he drove to the Closs home twice prior to Oct. 15 with plans to kidnap Jayme.. about a week or two before.. but noticed cars in the driveway once and lights on in the house the second time."

    "On the night of the crime, Patterson stole license plates off another car and put them on his. He disconnected the dome light and trunk lights. He brought his dad's pump 12 gauge shotgun because he thought they were most difficult to trace. "

    " Patterson shaved his head and face, wiped all fingerprints off the shells and everything, He wore two pairs of gloves, a black balaclava mask, steel toe work boots, and regular blue jeans."

    "After she was safe, Jayme told deputies on the night of the kidnapping, Jayme woke up her parents because the dog was barking. James went to the front door to see what was causing that."

    "Jayme and her mom heard the gunshot and went to the bathroom to hide together. Denise tried calling 911, but Patterson broke down the door and made them hang up"

    " Denise tried to barricade herself in the bathroom. The front door was shot in with a shotgun slug."

    " According to the criminal complaint filed against Jake Patterson, officers responding found James Closs shot in the head near the front door. Denise Closs shot in the head in the shower. "

    " Patterson said James Closs looked through a window and said, "Show me your badge," assuming he might be police. He shot James through the window next to the door. Then shot the door to enter the house. "

    " After breaking into the bathroom with 10-15 hits with his shoulder, "Denise and Jayme were seated in the bathtub, Denise with her arms wrapped around Jayme in a bear hug."

    " Patterson told police the same thing Jayme told them, about making Denise tape her mouth. Said her hands were shaking and he helped her do it, setting the shotgun down on the bathroom sink. "

    " Patterson forced Denise to put tape over Jayme's mouth. Then Patterson shot Denise. She says Patterson was dressed in black from head to toe. "

    " Patterson taped Jayme's hands and feet and drug her out of the home. He put her in the trunk of the car. Jayme heard the sirens of driving by as the car drove away. "

    "Patterson told officers he started to drive toward Barron but 20 seconds later yielded to three passing squad cars heading toward the house with lights and sirens"

    "he was determined he was going to take JLC that night and was going to kill anyone in the house because he could not leave any eyewitnesses behind. Asked what he would have done if he was stopped by police... he most likely would have shot at the police"

    " Jayme says that was the first time she had ever seen Patterson. She felt it took about two hours to arrive at the cabin. She said he disposed of her clothes and said he was getting rid of evidence. "

    " Jayme says Patterson would sometimes have family and relatives over. He threatened to harm her if they found out she was there. He made her hide under the bed and he stacked totes and laundry bins around it. And he would turn music on loud."

    ""Patterson left for 12 hours on Christmas. Often on Saturdays, his father would be in the house."

    " Patterson forced Jayme to stay under the bed while he left the house. He would punish her if it looked like the laundry bins moved. He would be gone up to 12 hours with no bathroom breaks, she told police. "

    "Twice while imprisoned under the bed, Patterson says it looked like Jayme tried to escape so he screamed to the point he knew she was scared and wouldn't try it again. He thought she was fearful enough of him that she knew not to leave the bedroom."

    "Jayme told officers that because of Patterson's anger outbursts, she complied and did what she was told."

    " On Jan. 10, Patterson told Jayme he would be gone 5 or 6 hours. She pushed the bins and weights away from the bed and got out from under it. She put on a pair of Patterson's shoes, left the house, and found Jeanne Nutter in the woods. "

    " When deputies pulled over Jake Patterson and asked him to step out of the car, Patterson told the deputy he knows what this is about, "And I did it. "

    " After read his rights, Patterson confessed to killing Jim and Denise Closs"

    I know it's not uncommon in cases like this but I'll never be able to understand being so scared that you stay under a bed for 12 hours when you know the person holding you captive is gone or there are other people in the house.

    Of course. She eventually ran when given the opportunity though. I'll never be able to wrap my head around not running at first chance I know it happens a lot in cases like this. People will take their captive out in public and shit and the person doesn't run or make a scene. I've never been in that situation so I can't imagine being afraid to run when the chance is there.

    I'm not saying I would do anything different. I'm simply saying, as someone that's never been in that situation, I can't wrap my head around being too afraid to run. I realize it happens a lot though so I'm not shocked that it happened.

    That's not a wild hot take. Some of y'all need Jesus.

    How are you that careful and precise about the break-in but nonchalant about holding her hostage?

    I wonder if she built his trust to get him to let down his guard or something.

    I get it. It's hard to understand how you'll act when presented with an insanely traumatic situation unless you're in one. The only reason why people get defensive about it is that the second guessing of the way victims react makes things weird in real life. When, in reality, people all react rather strangely when presented with different situations.

    Like, conspiracy theorists use the way people behave after tragedies all the time to come up with batshit crazy ideas.

    You gotta understand the situation. If you mess up, you know you're probably dead. You gotta be sure he didn't just pretend to leave or that he was really gonna be gone for hours. Or that he's not outside doing yard work.

    She played it perfectly. Give it a few times to make sure it isn't a test...then make a break for it.

    Rape surprisingly missing from the complaint. Unless the prosecutors know they can put him away for life on the murder charges and not have to worry about potentially putting her through the trial on the details.

    He wouldn’t have murdered my parents because at 13 I had watched plenty of Jean Claude Van Damme movies and I knew how to release a proper roundhouse

    Yea not second guessing her. That wasn't my intention. I know it happens a lot and it always blows me away. I've read about people that would take captives to like Home Depot and shit. That's wild.

    I didn't want to bring this up because it's horrible, but is the omission of any sexual activities on his charges a sign that it didn't happen or is that to protect her privacy?

    This guy is obviously mentally ill. What was his plan? He says he basically thought he got away with it after 2 weeks. Was he just going to have her live under his bed for the next 10 years?

    Will be part of his plea. Not having a rape conviction of a kid would be a positive in prison.

    How come never charged him with rape? Are they thinking she wasn’t sexually assaulted. That would be great if that were the case.
