Jayme Closs Describes The Horrific Events On October 15

Jayme Closs details the events that took place on October 15, and it sounds like something out of a nightmare.

In the criminal complaint (via CNN), Jayme said she woke up to hear her dog barking, and she saw a car coming up the driveway. 

She woke her parents up and her father, James, went to investigate. Jayme said there was a man at the door with a gun, and she and her mother hid in the bathroom. She heard her father get shot. 

Jayme's mother, Denise, called 911 and Patterson "broke down the bathroom door and told her mother to hang up the phone." 

Jayme said Patterson told her mother to "put tape over (Jayme's) mouth, which her mother did, and then Patterson shot her mother," according to the complaint. 

Patterson wrapped Jayme's hands and ankles together behind her back with black tape, dragged her to his car, and put her in the trunk. 

Jayme said she could hear the sirens of two squad cars drive by shortly after Patterson drove away.

At the cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin, Jayme said Patterson would have friends over and "made it clear [to her] that nobody was to know she was there or bad things would happen to her." He would make her hide under his bed in his bedroom when people came over. 

"When he made her hide under his bed (Jayme) stated he stacked totes and laundry bins around the bed with weights (like weights for barbels) stacked against them, so she could not move them without his being able to detect it if she did," read the complaint. 

Sometimes Jayme would have to stay under the bed for up to 12 hours at a time without food, water, or bathroom breaks. 

One time, Jayme said Patterson got mad and hit her "really hard" on her back with an object she believed was used to clean blinds. 

Last Thursday, Patterson told her he would be gone for about 5-6 hours. She was able to push the weights away and escape, running to neighbor Jeanne Nutter and her dog, Henry. 

"I'm Jayme Closs. I don't know where I am. He killed my parents," she told Jeanne. "Please help. I want to go home."
