BARRON, Wis. — A 21-year-old man killed a western Wisconsin couple in a baffling scheme to kidnap their teenage daughter, then held the girl captive for three months before she narrowly managed to escape and reach safety as he drove around looking for her, authorities said. Jayme Closs, 13, was skinny, disheveled and wearing shoes too big for her when she approached a stranger and pleaded for help Thursday in the small, isolated north woods town of Gordon, where police said she was being held by Jake Thomas Patterson. Within minutes, Patterson was pulled over and jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges for what authorities said was his meticulously planned shotgun attack at the girl’s home in October.

Opinion PUBLISHED: 13:53 02 May 2018 Chris McGuire Chris McGuire attempts to wake up fully.... so how do Fashionable Parents manage to look so alert so early (and so tidy)? Archant Chris McGuire - otherwise known as Out of Depth Dad - on the annoying phenomenon of Fashionable Parents. How the heck to Fashionable Parents do it? Part of me thinks that they must be a different species completely. That would make sense. There’s got to be something in their DNA that allows them to do it. How on earth do Fashionable Parents look so ‘together’? It really isn’t fair, especially when the rest of us look like we got dressed blindfolded.... in a jumble sale. For a bet... Let me explain.
