Wow, what a strange story! So it’s believed that she may have witnessed what happened to her parents. Is she on the run? Did she get taken without her consent? Whatever happened, why did the parents have to die?
I was watching a movie the other night with Nicholas Cage and Nicole Kidman. Their family was well to do and Nick was a jeweler. Their home was equipped with state of the art security. The daughter had decided to disobey her parents and sneak out of the house to go to a party. While she was away, thieves conned their way into the house and a hostile situation took place. Basically, these men wanted diamonds or cash… even both.
When the daughter returns, she is greeted by these men holding her parents hostage. These men weren’t going to leave until they got what they came for.
If this was a robbery, nobody had to die. They could have gotten their loot and escaped. Someone wanted these two people dead. This family lived in a rural area. The story above is Hollywood. But that’s a real life scenario. People don’t Rob you typically with the intent to kill. They want to Rob you AND escape. What’s the point of robbing someone AND killing them? You risk getting caught. A quick, in and out with little evidence is what most criminals are attempting.
A Closs family member who wishes to remain unidentified tells Fox News exclusively that relatives are shocked by the mysterious double murder of 56-year-old James Closs and 46-year-old Denise Closs and don’t have a clue why the Wisconsin couple were shot dead in their home.
“It’s a shock to the system,” the family member tells Fox News.
The relative says Denise Closs was very close to her relatives and has been described as “the family’s angel … she would take vacation days if you needed help.”
The family member acknowledges the rampant rumors surrounding the double murder and 13-year-old Jayme’s disappearance. Some people online and also folks in the Closses’ hometown of Barron, Wisconsin, have speculated that Jayme might have had a boyfriend or met someone who took advantage of her and killed her parents.
“It’s a tough pill to swallow. We’re not ruling anything out,” the family member said.
To date, no member of law enforcement or anyone from the Closs family has indicated that Jayme had some type of boyfriend.
The Barron County Sherriff, Chris Fitzgerald, released a statement Friday urging anyone who knew the Closs family or had recently been with them to come forward.
“We are seeking information about the victims Denise and James Closs. We are hopeful to learn more about the Closs family to help bring Jayme home. If you spent time with members of the Closs family recently or if you have ever had a misunderstanding with any members of the Closs family or know someone who has, please call the tip line,” Fitzgerald wrote in an online post.
Police say James and Denise Closs were shot to death in their hometown of about 3,300 people, some 90 miles northeast of Minneapolis, around 1 a.m on Monday. It’s likely Jayme witnessed her parents’ murders and has since vanished.
omeone inside the home called 911 from a cellphone during the crime but that person did not interact with dispatch. Police arrived at the house in about four minutes to find Denise and James dead.
New 911 logs appear to indicate Denise’s cellphone placed the 911 call and that James Closs answered the door and was the first to be shot to death.
“ADVISED ONE MALE DOWN, MULTIPLE ROUNDS SPENT. REQUESTED THAT ADMIN BE NOTIFIED,” the 911 call logs read around 1:04 a.m.
Then at 1:05 a.m.,
“ADVISED THE DOOR HAS BEEN KICKED IN. ADVISED THAT THE MALE WHO IS DOWN HAD ANSWERED THE DOOR. UNKNOWN IF ANYONE IS MISSING.
Police say responding officers made it to the Closs house in about four minutes.
“ADVISED TWO SUBJECTS DOWN,” at 1:08 a.m.
Police say they have not recovered a gun.
A 14-mile search of the ditch along Highway 8 near the Closs home did not yield any evidence of value, according to Fitzgerald.
The FBI tells Fox News ongoing searches could be happening without the public or media aware.
Jayme Closs is widely described as a sweet, shy girl. In many of her social media pictures, she is seen smiling with friends.
Both James and Denise Closs were long-time employees of the Jennie-O Turkey Store in Barron, Wisconsin. The company released a statement expressing sorrow at the killings.
“Our thoughts are with the Closs family and the entire Barron community,” said the statement. “This is a difficult time for our entire team and we are mourning this loss and are still processing this terrible tragedy. We are also hopeful for the safe return of their daughter, Jayme, and are keeping her and the Closs family in our thoughts.”
Jayme stands 5 feet tall and weighs 100 lbs. She has green eyes and blonde or strawberry blonde hair.
Anyone with any information concerning her whereabouts is urged to call the Barron County Sheriff’s Department at 715-537-3106 or the tip line at 1-855-744-3879.
Is she hiding somewhere? And if so, from whom? Does a friend or family member have her tucked away for her safety? If so, why? From what? What location could be safer than with police?
If this child is alive she could be part of a sex trafficking ring. Reports are saying that she was possibly spotted in Miami Florida. I watched the video and I didn’t see a thing that showed her. They have a part of the video that is highlighted, but I still couldn’t tell. The two men who allegedly are seen with the girl are Middle Eastern and in their 30s.
