Jayme Closs helped lead authorities to the man accused of kidnapping her and killing her parents
Once-missing teenager Jayme Closs escaped from the remote Wisconsin residence of her captor -- a man now arrested on suspicion of killing her parents and abducting her three months ago -- before the girl flagged down a woman who was walking her dog, authorities say.
In a case that inspired numerous searches and thousands of public tips, it was 13-year-old Jayme who helped herself to freedom Thursday afternoon.
Her accused abductor -- Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, of Gordon -- was arrested shortly afterward, when a law enforcement officer pulled him over in a vehicle after neighbors called 911 to report Jayme's emergence, authorities said.
Patterson was being held Friday on preliminary charges of first-degree intentional homicide and kidnapping. Source 3k.
