Kept teenage girl caught in 88 days: 'She was terrified of me'

It turned out that he was right in some of it.

Hundreds of documents in the case of us Jake Patterson, who is convicted of having kidnapped teenagepigen Jayme Closs and killed her parents, were Friday published for the first time. It writes the news agency AP.

"I know, that she was terrified of me," he explained to the police when he was arrested.

had he thought that the 13-year-old Jayme Closs would never try to escape from him.

But that was exactly what she ended up doing.

It was 15. October last year, the american girl Jayme Closs woke up in the middle of the night to her dog barking.

She went into her parents, James and Denise, in the home of Barron in the state of Wisconsin and woke them, while at the same time a car drove up their driveway.

Her father - she has told the police - then walked to the front door, while she and her mother hid in a bath.

Shortly after heard the young girl a shot being fired. And she knew her father was dead.

A man dressed in black and with a mask for the face broke the bathroom door down, and he placed the tape for Jaymes mouth, just as he tied the tape around her hands and ankles, before he pulled her up out of the bathtub

Then he shot her mother.

He dragged the young girl outside, threw her into his car trunk and drove away.

In 88 days she was held captive by the 22-year-old Jake Patterson, who explained that he first saw Jayme, as she stood by the school bus near his home, and he immediately knew that 'she was the girl he would take'.

He held Jayme trapped in a remote cabin about 100 kilometers north of Barron.

The young girl was forced to hide under his bed when Jake Patterson, had a visit from his family or friends, and she was told that she would be killed if she moved. Sometimes she had to lie there for hours.

Of the published documents in the case, it appears that Jake Patterson believed that he had done to Jayme so scared that she did not dare to go against him. Therefore, put he never extra locks on the doors or windows in the cottage.

"I trusted her and that she would not try to escape," he told to the police.

After they had arrived at the cottage, burned her clothes and gave her something of his own to take on.

In the beginning she would not eat or drink it, he put forward to her, but of the documents, it appears that she, according to Jake Patterson 'quickly learned' that he would be angry over in the slightest. Therefore, she behaved sweetly to him, so that he would not hurt her.

in Addition, it also to Jake Patterson for the most part acted impulsively. He had tried to hide his identity when he broke into the family home, but he had not thought about what he would do in the longer term, after he had kidnapped Jayme.

"I'm really good at not thinking about stuff," he explained, according to AP police.

The times, Jake Patterson, left the hut, she had also put himself under the bed, as he then placed the multiple bags and heavy weights around, so she could not get out.

She got to know that he would know it if she had tried to remove them. Despite the threat, she did it anyway 10. January of this year.

During her escape, she happened to pass by a woman who aired her dog, and she helped Jayme to call the police.

When Jake Patterson was subsequently arrested, he admitted with the same, what he had done.

When he was sentenced, read Jayme Closs's lawyer an opinion from the girl up in court:

"he thought He could own me, but he was wrong. I was none the wiser. I was brave, and he wasn't. He thought he could get me to like him, but he was wrong," it said.

Jake Patterson is now serving a life sentence.
