Horrifying New Details Emerge in Jayme Closs Kidnapping

The ordeal this child endured will haunt you. And how it all began is every parent's worst nightmare...

Jake Patterson told investigators that he was stopped behind a school bus one day when he saw Jayme Closs, 13, board it. He says he immediately decided, right then and there, that he wanted to kidnap her. After stalking her and finding out where she lived, Patterson attempted to kidnap her twice before that horrific night when he stormed her home, murdered her parents, and took her to his cabin in Gordon, WI.

During the 88-day ordeal, Jayme was kept imprisoned under Patterson's bed. I can't imagine how this child summoned the courage to escape, but I am so overjoyed that she did!
