More Jayme Closs thoughts

The most frightening thing about the abduction of Jayme Closs, and the murder of her parents, is that it seems like there was basically nothing that could have been done to prevent it.

The perpetrator had no arrest record. He had basically no connection to anyone in the Closs family, wasn’t talking to them online or anything. Almost all the time, an abductor/murderer has SOME connection to his victim. Like, Brian David Mitchell first saw Elizabeth Smart when Elizabeth’s dad took pity on the poor homeless dude and hired him to do some work around the house.

The Closses never met Jake Patterson before that horrible day the parents were murdered and Jayme was taken.

All Jayme did was get off the school bus, and that was where it all started. Her abduction is much like the abduction of Shasta Groene and the murder of her family. Joseph Duncan, a known sex offender with no connection to the Groene family, saw Shasta playing in her front yard and decided he had to have her at any cost. If you ask me, Jake Patterson was a Joseph Duncan in the making.

What can we, as a society, do to stop such horrific and horrifically random crimes? Basically nothing.

You can’t keep your kids in isolation. They have to learn to live in the world and to do that they have to go out in society.

Jayme is alive and with people who love her, and the man who did this will never see the light of day again. It can only get better from here. But this is going to affect her, and her family and friends, in all sorts of ways. I hope they all get the help they need to recover.

    I hope that Jayme gets all the help she needs, and professional help more than anything. Shasta ended up with a horrible case of PTSD , substance abuse issues nd whatnot. Maybe more could have been done to help her

    This whole case is so very strange as to why someone would abduct a 13 yr old and kept her confined to his house. Never sexually abused her and never kept her tied up. Sounds like he left the house quite often and the only thing he did was order her to stay under a bed that he blocked her in with boxes and weights. In fact she said she was left at least one time for over 12 hours and during that time she never tried to escape. And it was stated that this was a cabin in a remote area but when she finally escaped, it seems like there were several houses nearby. In fact, the lady who Jayme first saw was walking her dog on the road near his house because she lived close by. This road ran right in front of this home. So sounds like there were plenty of people in this area and no one saw anything? Yes, it was horrific that the parents ere both shot to death. But if the only motive was to abduct the girl, he could have done that when she was not in her home. Look, I feel for the girl and her family, all I am saying is that alot of things don’t add up. However, glad that she is finally back and safe with her family and friends.

      Where are you getting that he never sexually abused her? He hasn’t been charged with sexual abuse but they have announced he won’t be charged with ANY crimes committed during her captivity, because they’ve got him on so much already and don’t want to victimize Jayme further.

      Oh, and he said he didn’t know anything about her, not even her name. He only knew what he looked like and where she lived and what school she attended, cause he saw her getting off the bus in front of her house.

      You know what? You disgust me. You clearly know VERY little about this case, based on the erroneous statements you made, but have no problem casting horrible aspersions against a little girl.

      You are no better than the people who made all sorts of assumptions about my rape when they knew nothing, and accused me of being a liar and a false accuser based on nothing but their own erroneous speculations and “hunches.”
