Someone dialed 911 from Denise Closs’ cellphone the morning she and James Closs were murdered in their Wisconsin home. A dispatcher has since revealed harrowing details about the call which came in around 1 a.m. on Oct. 15, claiming there was “a lot of yelling” in the background.
The dispatcher tried calling back several times, however was unable to leave a voicemail and the phone calls went unanswered, according to Barron Sheriff department records obtained by ABC News. Authorities reportedly found the door kicked in at the Closs residence. Apparently, James answered the door and multiple rounds were fired. Denise and James’ 13-year-old daughter Jayme Closs was believed to be home during the killings and abducted by the time police arrived.

Investigators have enlisted the help of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as well as the FBI to crack the case. “We believe Jayme was in the home at the time of the homicides and we believe she’s still in danger,” Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said three days after the horrific event, noting how he’s confident that James and Denise’s daughter is still out there. “[There’s a] 100 percent expectation that she’s alive,” he added. “At the end of the end of the day, I want a 13-year-old here safe and sound. That’s our only goal right now.”
The Miami Police Department recently tweeted about a possible lead, claiming a girl matching Jayme’s description “may have been seen” approximately 1,750 miles from her home. “If it was her, she was in a black Ford Explorer with a possible WI plate of I60WER,” the tweet on Oct. 15 read. “If you have any information, please call 911 immediately.” Jayme is five feet tall, weighs 100 pounds, with green eyes and blond or strawberry blond hair, the sheriff’s department said. Anyone with information regarding her disappearance should call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879.
