Suspect Jake Patterson Details Chilling Reason He Kidnapped Jayme Closs
He then bound Jayme Closs’ wrists and ankles and put her into the trunk of his car and drove her to
his home about two hours away, where she was held captive for nearly three months
before escaping. Closs told detectives that Patterson made her hide under his bed when friends or relatives visited, stacking baskets and totes filled with weights around the bed so he would hear her if she tried to escape. He would make her stay under the bed for up to 12 hours at a time without food, water, or bathroom access and on at least one occasion hit her “really hard.”
