We now know the woman approached by Jayme Closs, and she had even worked in child protective services at one time.
Jeanne Nutter was the dog walker who was approached by 13-year-old Jayme Closs, who had been missing for nearly three months after her parents were slain in their Wisconsin home. According to Fox News, Nutter is a retired social worker who worked for years in child protective services.
The run-in was a complete coincidence despite Nutter's background. Nutter said she was walking her golden retriever, Henry, when they ran into Closs, who "appeared dirty and thin, with matted hair and wearing shoes that were too big for her."
"I went to her and she just sort of grabbed onto me and she told me who she was," Nutter said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I've been a social worker my whole life. I was in child protection [services], so I believe my CPS personality just turned on."
Nutter actually lives in Eau Claire, about 110 miles north from where she ran into Closs. She and her husband own a cabin in Gordon and were staying there for a few days.
