Jayme Closs rescuer: "The stars were aligned"

Jayme Closs was reunited with her aunt Jennifer Naiberg Smith after the ordeal

A man suspected of kidnapping a Wisconsin teenager and killing her parents is expected to be formally charged Monday, and the charging documents could shed light on what investigators believe the young man knew about his victims, his motives and tactics.

The grandfather of a 13-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl says she's in "exceptionally good spirits" after being found almost three months after authorities say she was kidnapped during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

Details of Jayme's three-month captivity have not been released, and Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has not said whether Jayme was sexually assaulted.

She was able to escape her abductor after almost three months of being held captive by Jake Thomas Patterson. Jake Allard, a cousin who was present for the joyful reunion, said Jayme couldn't stop smiling when she arrived home with her aunt, Jennifer Smith.

"My neighbor and I ... legitimately thought someone was coming for her", Kasinskas said. "We love you Jayme", Trowbridge said.

- Over the past several days, a lot of attention has been on the town of Gordon, Wisc. where Jayme Closs was found after 88 days missing.

He's scheduled to make his initial court appearance on the charges today, and his attorney, Charlie Glynn, said it's too early to discuss specifics of the case.

During the service they took a moment to pray for Jayme and her family and also to thank all of those who searched endlessly for her since October.

It's unclear if some of Jayme's family will attend the hearing.

Jake Patterson had, as it turns out, worked at the same turkey processing plant, but only for a single day three years ago.

Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there. We've actually been able to bring her home to Barron County. She approached a woman walking a dog and asked for her help. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves. The FBI offered a cash reward for information on her whereabouts, and authorities urged hunters in the area to be on the lookout for clues.

The girl has been reunited with relatives, who shared pictures showing her smiling with her aunt and dog.

Nutter and Jayme went to the closest house, the home of Kristin and Peter Kasinskas, and they called 911.

Robert Naiberg told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Sunday that he's spoken with his granddaughter the last two nights.

Sunday night, his public defenders Charles Glynn and Richard Jones met with Patterson and afterward talked with the media.

When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.
