Suspect in Wisconsin Double-Murder, Kidnapping Case Due in Court Monday

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, is charged with two counts of intentional homicide, kidnapping and burglary.

Jake Patterson, 21, is accused of shooting and killing Jayme's parents before abducting the 13-year-old from her northwestern Wisconsin home on October 15.

According to a Facebook page that was originally set up when Jayme disappeared but is now titled Healing for Jayme Closs says that if you would like to write any letters or well wishes to Jayme or her family, you can send it to Light the Way Home for Jayme Closs at PO box 539 in Rice Lake, WI 54868.

Jayme and her mother, Denise, heard the gunshots and hid in a bathroom as Patterson came to the front door, the complaint says. Per the complaint, he said he saw Jayme get on the bus and "he knew that was the girl he was going to take".

The criminal complaint says Patterson told investigators he was driving to his job at a cheese factory one day near Almena, Wisconsin, when he stopped behind a school bus and watched Jayme get on.

PEOPLE has obtained an image of the remote Wisconsin cabin where authorities allege Jayme Closs was held before her rescue on Thursday - almost three months after she went missing and her parents were found murdered. "And now I told her, I said, 'I get my mom back".

Jayme Closs was evaluated at a hospital and given medical clearance on Friday.

While it might be some time before Closs returns to class, her teachers are already ready to help.

"Now they know their Jayme, [who] was their whole world, is home with family". She woke her parents as a vehicle came up the driveway. Formal charges were expected Monday, Jan. 14. Patterson was arrested without incident. She had fled the home where law enforcement says she was being kept, and found a woman walking her dog.

"She is doing great", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told "Anderson Cooper Full Circle". A criminal complaint filed Monday details how the man accused of kidnapping the 13-year-old allegedly knew her.

The complaint says Patterson warned Jayme that "bad things could happen to her" if anyone found her at his cabin.

Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there.

Nutter, a social worker who spent year working for the child protection services, spotted that Jayme looked unkempt and wasn't dressed for the cold weather and approached the teen, at which point Closs disclosed who she was.

Jayme's aunt, Kelly Engelhardt, told Fox News that Patterson had "absolutely" no contact with the Closs family prior to the murders and kidnapping. Closs pointed out the property where she had been held for more than 80 days, which allegedly borders Nutter's property.

Investigators are trying to determine how Jayme escaped from Patterson's home, Fitzgerald said.

"It was a moment I'll never forget", Fitzgerald said.

Glynn and Jones issued a statement Saturday saying they were relying on the court system to treat Patterson fairly.

Patterson's attorneys held a news conference Sunday after speaking with their client.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, Smart recalled some advice her own mother gave her when she was reunited with her family after nine months. In Wisconsin, charging documents often contain detailed information about the case.

"I just was so happy that Jaymee was found alive". "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".
