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 Closs was his selected target and the complaint doesn’t provide a date for the chance encounter. Soon after, however, Patterson said he purchased a mask to use in the abduction.

Patterson was charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, one count of kidnapping and armed burglary after police captured the 21-year-old following Jayme’s escape from the Gordon, Wisconsin house. He appeared in court for the first time Monday and his bail was set at $5 million cash
