Abducted girl reunited with family after parents murdered | ITV News

A man has been detained over the deaths of a US couple he is alleged to have killed because he wanted to kidnap their teenage daughter, investigators said.

Jake Thomas Patterson was arrested a day after missing Jayme Closs approached a stranger on a rural road saying she had been abducted in October and held against her will.

Patterson, 21, was taken into custody shortly after the 13-year-old sought help from a woman walking her dog in a rural, heavily wooded Wisconsin neighbourhood near the small town of Gordon, about 60 miles north of Barron.
