Well, this is disturbing. Jayme Closs’ suspected kidnapper Jake Patterson made light of allegedly killing her parents and taking Jayme in a creepy new letter from prison, Radar Online reported February 18. “It’s weird. I went from never committing a crime or really doing anything bad to doing the worst thing a human can do,” he reportedly wrote to a friend. “Just one big f–k up haha.” Clearly, this is far from a laughing matter.
The alleged killer also wrote about how his brother got a puppy “a couple of weeks before Jayme ran away,” with hearts chillingly surrounding the 13-year-old’s name. He continued, “I love Mexican food too, but I like lots of stuff. Chocolate and berries are probably my favorite. Me and Jayme cooked a bunch of stuff. Cooking is another thing I like doing a lot,” offering creepy insight into Jayme’s day-to-day life with her captor.
On January 10, Wisconsin teen Jayme was found alive after she went missing for three months after she made a daring escape from her captor. She was discovered missing on October 15, 2018, after her parents were found dead in the family’s home. Her 21-year-old kidnapper was arrested on January 10, on homicide and kidnapping charges, after reportedly holding her in the cabin he lived in alone and keeping her captive for 88 days. He is now behind bars awaiting trial.
A family friend of Jayme Closs’ aunt Jennifer Smith, Michelle Saffert, told In Touch on January 14 that her aunt “never lost hope” when it came to finding the girl. “She constantly had hope, which I think radiated to the whole community, to continue to fight and pray and share pictures and do anything anyone could because Jennifer carried that hope with her all the time,” she said. In the end, Jayme was able to come home, and will hopefully soon see justice done for her and her parents — despite their alleged killer laughing off what he may have done to them.
