Jayme Closs Suspect Went To Great Lengths To Conceal Identity From Police

Barron County Sheriff

The man accused of killing Jayme Closs' parents in their Wisconsin home went to great lengths to prevent leaving evidence behind at the scene.

According to CNN, 21-year-old Jake Patterson allegedly shaved his head to avoid leaving DNA evidence at the scene where he is accused of shooting and killing Jayme's parents. 

Barron County Sheriff Christopher Fitzgerald said, "I can tell you that the subject planned his actions and took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public." 

Fitzgerald also suggests Patterson went to the Closs home with the intention of taking Jayme, but "nothing in this case shows the suspect knew anyone at the Closs home or at any time had contact with anyone in the Closs family." 

Investigators don't believe Patterson and Jayme interacted on social media. And while he worked at the same turkey processing plant as Closs' parents for one day three years ago, authorities don't believe they ever crossed paths. 

Obviously there's a lot to this story that we don't know about, and only time will allow us those details.
