Jayme Closs kidnap suspect allegedly cut his hair to avoid leaving DNA evidence The man accused of kidnapping Jayme Closs shaved his head to avoid leaving any evidence during the attack that left her parents dead, police said.

PEOPLE has obtained an image of the remote Wisconsin cabin where authorities allege Jayme Closs was held before her rescue on Thursday — nearly three months after she went missing and her parents were found murdered.

A sign above the front door of the unfussy Wisconsin home of Jayme’s alleged abductor Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, reads “Patterson’s Retreat.”

Inside the two-story house, authorities allege Patterson kept the 13-year-old Jayme as a prisoner after killing her parents in their Barron home nearly 70 miles away, then abducting and hiding Jayme in the cabin outside Gordon from which she escaped last Thursday and sought help from a woman out walking a dog.

“She told us that she was very well-hidden,” Kristin Kasinskas, a Patterson neighbor who opened her door to the frantic knock of that dog-walker, told the CBS program 48 Hours. “She said that other people would come to the house but she would have to be hidden. I don’t know how he kept her so under wraps for long.”

Jayme Closs kidnapping suspect decided to take teen after seeing her get off a school bus, complaint says Jayme Closs’ kidnapping suspect began his plot to abduct the 13-year-old girl from his Wisconsin home after seeing her get on a school bus and deciding that “he knew that was the girl he was going to take,” the criminal complaint revealed Monday. Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, told authorities he spotted Closs for the first time after he stopped behind a school bus on Highway 8 while he was driving to work at the Saputo Cheese Factory, where he worked for only two days. He didn’t provide a specific reason why the 13-year-old was his selected target and the complaint doesn't provide a date for the chance encounter.

“It just kills me that she was just four doors down and we didn’t know,” Kasinskas added. “Not that we would have ever known or could have ever known, but it kills me that she was that close.”
