Wisconsin Man Kills Self After Alleged Jayme Closs Copycat Scenario

A Wisconsin man is accused of possibly trying to imitate the abduction of teen Jayme Closs before ending his own life.

According to the Daily Mail, a Wisconsin man turned a gun on himself after killing three of his own family members and breaking in to the home of people he didn't know to kill a young female on Sunday.

Ritchie German Jr., 34, killed his mother, brother, and 8-year-old nephew at their Lafayette, Wisconsin home before shooting his way into another family's home to take the life of 24-year-old Laile Vang about 10 miles away.

He ended his own life following the slayings.

Investigators reportedly believe that there are similarities in Vang's death to the kidnapping of 13-year-old Jayme Closs. German left items in his car that suggested similarities to the Closs case, albeit, investigators wouldn't say what the items were.

The motive is still unknown, but authorities say German and Vang exchanged text messages.

"Who is this? I don't know you," was Vang's text response to German's inquiry about a personal relationship.
