The house where Jayme Closs was held by her kidnapper is revealed.
Images of the house in which Jayme Closs was held for a nightmarish 3 months since her October 2018 kidnapping have been revealed.
On October 15, 2018, Jake Patterson allegedly broke into the Closs home, murdered Jayme's parents, and kidnapped the 13-year-old, which he then held captive.
MURDERER-KIDNAPPER LIVED IN RAMSHACKLE CABIN
Patterson held Jayme for 88 days in the Wisconsin cabin in squalid conditions, forcing her to hide under his bed if he had visitors.
He would stack laundry bins and barbell weights around the bed so she couldn't move. The young girl would often go for more than 12 hours without food, water or bathroom breaks.
Jayme later told the police that Patterson would force her to hide under his bed when he had visitors
When Jayme managed to escape, she identified her kidnapper and Police tracked him down to his home. A sign on his front door reads “Patterson’s Retreat” and another bids visitors “Welcome.” Patterson, 21, lived alone in the cabin.
GROUNDS OF CABIN LITTERED WITH JUNK
The grounds of the cabin are littered with abandoned cars, rusty bikes and heaps of garbage which included discarded cans of Cranberry Smirnoff Ice, Grape Henry’s Hard Soda, black cherry White Claw Hard Soda and an empty pack of female adult diapers.
PATTERSON'S HOME IN DISREPAIR
The inside of the cabin itself is in disrepair, with the ceiling insulation visible. The floor is patched with a tatty green rug and linoleum and piles of dirty dishes fill the kitchen sink.
Jayme later told the police that Patterson would force her to hide under his bed when he had visitors and pile laundry baskets and barbells around her to prevent her from moving.
