Three police cars & # 39; s racing to the massacre of Closs and crossed paths with killer 20 SECONDS after he had fled
Cops rattling to the site of the Clossé massacre crossed paths with murderer and kidnapper Jake Patterson as he drove away only 20 seconds after he had fled the scene with his victim in the trunk.
Patterson stated that he was giving in to three squadrons that moved westward to the home of the Closs family on US Highway 8 as he rode east, the rifle with which he had still warmly blasted Denise and James Closs on the passenger seat next to him.
Barron County Sheriff Deputy Jon Fick noted that a single vehicle was driving east while the responding units were heading west on the desolate highway. He correctly identified the vehicle as & # 39; an older Ford Taurus.
But the car was not stopped by the police.
Patterson had put stolen signs on his car as one of the many steps he took to prevent detection. He switched off the light in the dome and removed the trunk light and what he described as the "glow in the dark kidnapping cord." of the suitcase so that no one could pull the trunk release inside.
If the officers had stopped him, he told the researchers, his plan was to shoot them because he was determined to kill anyone who might have witnessed his horrendous crimes.
The revelation is part of the detailed criminal charges that were released yesterday when Patterson made his first appearance.
Cops rattling at the site of the massacre of the Closs family crossed paths with killer and kidnapper Jake Patterson as he drove away only 20 seconds after he had fled the lane with Jayme in the trunk
Patterson declared that he was giving in to three squadrons that moved westward to the home of the Closs family on US Highway 8 while driving east, the rifle with which he had still irradiated Denise and James Closs warmly beside him on his passenger seat.
Jayme collapsed with her mother in the bathroom while Patterson shot her father in her head and watched in horror as he did the same to her mother, minutes after she had thrown in the thin door.
Dressed from head to toe in black, including a face mask, hat, and gloves, Patterson seized the frightened teenager, tore her hands and ankles together, covered her mouth with tape, and dragged her from her home to his waiting car.
According to Jayme, her kidnapper then bundled her in the trunk and took her to the cabin for about two hours, where he would hold her for the next three months.
The gruesome details of the Closs murders and Jayme's abduction came to light in the criminal case filed yesterday for Patterson's first lawsuit at the Circuit Court of Barron County.
According to Jayme's story, Patterson took her to the hut, removed the tape from her mouth, hands and ankles and told her to go to the bathroom and remove all her clothes.
He had her put the clothes she had been kidnapped into in a bag, making a remark about "no evidence," & # 39;
If the officers had stopped Patterson, he told the researchers, his plan was to shoot them because he was determined to kill anyone who might have witnessed his horrendous crimes. On the photo: a police car on the road in Gordon, Wisconsin, where the missing teenager Jayme Closs was found
When friends or relatives visited Patterson, he made it clear that nobody would know she was there or that bad things would happen to her. & # 39;
He let her lie under his bed in a corner of his bedroom and stacked bins and washbasins around the bed with weights stacked on each other so that she could not move them.
On one occasion Jayme said, according to the DailyMail.com documents, that Patterson got angry and hit her very hard with the handle of something he used to clean up the blind. & # 39; She could not remember what had made him angry.
Her escape came when he left the hut and she managed to push the weights away and flee.
Patterson has been accused of two counts of first-line murder, kidnapping and armed burglary.
Patterson well-known police officers that he decided that Jayme & # 39; was the girl he was going to take & # 39; after she happened to see that she stepped on the school bus when it stopped in front of him while he was driving to work.
According to Patterson he had no idea who Jayme was & # 39; when he decided to take her with him and started planning his crime.
He bought a black balaclava from Walmart and drove twice to the Closs house with the intention of kidnapping her, but was put off by cars on the ramp and the lights in the house.
There they found the bodies of Denise, 46, and James Closs, 56, and realized that their 13-year-old daughter was nowhere to be found

Patterson stole his father's 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun (file photo) – chosen because it was so common and would be difficult to trace
In the night of 15 to 15 October he finally followed the moss-mount shotgun of his father with 12 gauge – chosen because it was so common and difficult to trace.
He took six 12-gauge grenades because he felt that the 12 gauge would cause the most damage to someone and would most likely be the best choice for a grenade and weapon to kill someone. & # 39;
Like the balaclava, he wore two pairs of gloves. He closed his headlights and walked to the end of the driveway. As he approached under the cover of darkness, Patterson saw Jayme's father, James, standing in the big window.
Jayme told detectives that she had been awakened by her dog who was barking Molly and saw someone approaching the ramp when she went to investigate.
She woke up her parents and her father went to the door to see what was going on. & # 39;
Patterson claimed that he was shouting at James Closs to get to the ground but that he & # 39; a flashlight kept shining and looked out & # 39 ;.
The shooter approached the front steps, opened the glass storm door and began pounding on the wooden door.
As James Closs peered through the decorative glass window, he asked Patterson's badge to be seen – assuming he was law enforcement.
At that moment Patterson said, he raised his rifle, pointed to the head of James Closs and pulled the trigger.
James is described in the complaint as being "significant trauma to his face and head."
Chillingly after he had dragged the shocked teenager to his car, bundled her in his car and made his outing, Patterson said, "He gave in to three passing squad cars that were heading west towards the house with their red and blue emergency lights and sirens on & # 39;
Jayme was found on the Eau Claire Acres estate near the town of Gordon, about 70 miles from her home in Barron, where she was kidnapped
He tried to open the door behind him behind which James Closs had collapsed, but when he could not lower his rifle and get the doorknob on the ground.
Once inside he stepped over the lifeless body of James Closs and went to the closed door right in front of him. He quickly sniffed other rooms to check someone else.
When he found no one else in the house, he went back to the closed door where Denise and Jayme were hiding, kicking and pushing the door 10 to 15 times before it burst.
In a frightening scene he tore down the shower curtain, took the fishing rod and found Denise with her arms wrapped around Jayme in a bear-hug. & # 39;
Patterson said to Denise that she had to put black duct tape over her daughter's mouth, but when she "was struggling to do that & # 39; he put down his rifle, took the tape back and wrapped it around Jayme's mouth and head.
He let the teenager rise while he took & placed [tape] around her wrists, with her palms together to restrain her hands and arms. & # 39;
Patterson then tore off her ankles, removed her from the bath, and as she stood beside him, he turned her head toward her mother and pulled the trigger.
As he pulled Jayme away, he told officers that he had almost slipped the blood that had collected on the floor.
The gruesome scene is uncovered while delegates present at the scene are told about blood and brain spatter on the … wall directly behind the wooden door. & # 39;
Denise was also shot in her head, with the back of her head and skull plate completely removed and next to her body in the bathtub. & # 39;

While Jayme's family prepares to defeat Patterson in court, DailyMail.com has made exclusive photos of the filthy basement cell in Patterson's home.

Strangely enough, after he had towed Jayme to his car, he bundled her into the trunk of his car and made his escape possible.
Patterson said: "He gave in to three passing squad cars that were heading west to the house with their red and blue emergency lights and sirens on."
When asked what he would have done if he had been stopped by the police while escaping, Patterson said, "he still had the loaded gun on the front seat of the car. [and] would probably have been shot at the police. & # 39;
Patterson said & # 39; knew he would kill everyone in the house [that night] because … he could not leave eyewitnesses. & # 39;
He described Jayme as & # 39; afraid & crying & # 39; when he finally let her out of the trunk.
She had let herself pee and that's why he said she had to switch to his sister's pajamas.
He then kept her in a room under his bed that has two sizes and is about 2 1/2 feet from the floor.
He said that Jayme had tried to escape his improvised den at least twice, and when she did, he hit a wall and screamed so much that he knew she was scared and … she'd better never try that again . & # 39;
He believed that she was afraid enough to leave the bedroom without him & # 39 ;.
Members of Jayme Closs & # 39; (pictured with her aunt Sue Naiberg Allard) told DailyMail.com that they will be in court today & # 39; Jake Patterson to look into the eyes & # 39 ;, while he first performed at Barron County Circuit Court
According to Patterson she did not leave because he had scared her enough with his outburst to the point where she obeyed.
Patterson said he left her 12 hours at Christmas alone while visiting his grandparents in Superior, and when his father visited him, he just popped up the radio to mask every sound they would make.
On the day of her escape and his arrest, Patterson had told Jayme that he would leave for a few hours.
When he came home, he discovered that she was not under the bed and she started desperately searching for her.
After a few minutes he returned to his house and when he saw the police, he knew he had been caught.
In a bizarrely nonchalant confession, Patterson told the police that he assumed he had murdered James and Denise and had kidnapped Jayme because he had not been caught for the first two weeks. & # 39;
He once denied ever having met Jayme in real life or online and that he only got to know her name after the abduction.
He claimed that he got to know the names of her parents when he saw the reports of their murders.
Patterson told a detective that he would never have been caught if he had planned everything correctly.
According to Patterso, Jayme did not leave because he had scared her with his outburst enough to the point that she met his wishes.
Patterson's father was crying openly when the accusations against his son were read out in court today and the bail at $ 5 million.
Patterson was not present but appeared via video link. He sat unmoved, dressed in an orange jumpsuit in prison when the charge was read. His father's shoulders swayed with tears when he saw him.
Asked whether he had been judged by the accusations, Patterson replied a strong, "Yes, sir."
When the first indictment was read – that of deliberate manslaughter – Patterson's father, Patrick, had a tormented cry.
In contrast, his youngest son was impervious. He looked down and followed the wording of the complaint when the judge read it.
Honorable James Babler ordered the collection of a DNA sample if it had not already been done and set the date for Patterson's next appearance at 11 am 6 February.
Speaking for the state, Brian Wright asked for a bail of $ 5 million. He said to the court: "Patterson has no ties with Barron County, he worked two days at the Saputo Cheese Factory, the only other reason than to be in Barron County was to kidnap J. & # 39;
Patterson's older brother, Erik, and father Patrick (pictured together) were the only family that was in court for him. They refused to answer questions after the hearing and Patrick shook his head when asked if he knew what had happened in the cabin
Patterson's brother Erik wore a blue and black jacket with hood. His father was dressed in a gray striped suit
Patterson's brother, Erik, and father, Patrick, were the only family present in court for him.
They refused to answer questions after the hearing. Patrick shook his head when asked if he knew what had happened in the cabin or if he had seen something strange.
Patterson turned to the right in the short procedure – to the bank facing the aisle where the relatives of Jayme, Denise, and James lived.
Erik wore a blue and black jacket with a hood and bent over. His father, seated next to him, was dressed in a gray striped suit. He took his glasses out of his nose when he sat down and held them in his hands. He was struggling with them for a moment.
