Members of the Jayme Closs family have told DailyMail.com that they will be in court later today to watch & # 39; Jake Patterson & # 39 ;, while making his debut in Barron County Circuit Court.
Speaking on the eve of Patterson's incident, Jayme's aunt Jennifer Smith (48) revealed that they had made the difficult decision to confront the man accused of kidnapping the 13-year-old and shooting down her parents – whom he as a & # 39; barrier & # 39; saw for her, his target – on the advice of law enforcement.
She said: "I will not be there, but my brother and sister will be there to look him in the eye."
Jennifer described the appearance of the court as, "the next step toward healing," in this long and difficult process.
She said: We got the advice from agents that this would be a good thing, so yes, some of the family will be there. & # 39;

It is barely four days since Jayme fled to the remote cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin, where 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson is accused of having taken hostage for 87 days of a crime that propelled the small town of Barron in Wisconsin, with a population of just over 3,000, unwillingly in the spotlight.
Barron County Sheriff, Chris Fitzgerald has always claimed that it was his mission to bring home & # 39; Jayme & # 39; But faced with the violence of the apparently targeted attack and kidnapping in the early hours of October 15, he had to admit that his assertion was based on nothing better than hope.
Eventually he said that the thirteen-year-old herself broke the case after she had escaped and & # 39; as a ghost emerged & # 39 ;, 70 miles from her home in rural Wisconsin.
But despite her ordeal, her grandfather, Robert Naiberg, said that she & # 39; s exceptionally good & # 39; does, and in & # 39; extremely good mood has a good mood for what she has experienced & # 39 ;.

A stack of children's backpacks, including one with panda ears, can be seen piled up at an angle of 8ft by 8ft.
Police sources say researchers are targeting the creepy cave because they're trying to determine the exact spot where 13-year-old Jayme was imprisoned after Patterson reportedly slaughtered her parents and snatched her away.
They are also expected to have examined an adjoining cellar compartment, a former wine cellar, which was the only room in the house whose curtains had been erected when officers arrived Thursday to investigate the dilapidated property after Jayme's remarkable escape.
Patterson, 21, is believed to have lived in the secluded wooded house until his arrest on charges of kidnapping and deliberate manslaughter.
The surrounding area of 2.5 hectares is littered with old cars, rusty bicycles and an assortment of rubbish, while a sign with Patterson & # 39; s Retreat & # 39; visitors are greeted as they approach the two-storey home and $ 110,000.
Twinkling Christmas decorations are still strung on the yard and many of the lights are still inside the wooden house – suggesting that the resident was in a hurry and had no chance to return.

This part of the house appeared to be well equipped. It has an oven, a TV, a sofa and lamps
On the wall to the left a number of coats hang from hangers. The room on the right seems to have a washing machine
Oddly enough, a pile of rubbish next to a garage contains an empty box of 80 adult limbs of Mark diapers.
In the snow are nearby empty bottles of sugary alcoholic beverages, such as cranberry and lime Smirnoff Ice, Henry's Hard Soda and Black Cherry White Claw, as well as discarded bags of potato chips.
What looked like a newly baked and eaten tray with pasta was dumped outside.
The cabin itself is filled with an assortment of old old furniture, from rocking chairs to fans and years old televisions and stereos.
Dirty dishes are piled up in an outdated kitchen.
In the large living room is a semi-finished game of Monopoly and a book entitled 'U.S. Armed Forces Survival Guide & # 39 ;.
A hammer, a flashlight, a scourer, a pair of scissors and a spray bottle of cleaning fluid are stacked on a table.
Researchers think it's possible that Jayme could have spent time in different parts of the house before being bundled in the basement when Patterson thought someone was visiting.
