Authorities Gather Evidence After Rescue Of Jayme Closs

Authorities are still trying to figure out the motive of the suspect accused of kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs and murdering her parents at their home in Wisconsin.

Closs was found Thursday, about 70 miles away from her home, after being held for 87 days by the alleged perpetrator, Jake Thomas Patterson.

Authorities apprehended Patterson while he was out searching for Jayme soon after her escape.

Police have not yet determined why Patterson targeted the Closs family.

He was briefly employed at a meat products plant where Closs' parents were long-time employees, but authorities do not believe that Patterson had any contact with the family at that time.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald commented on the lack of a motive, saying: "I don't understand it yet myself.

That's the million-dollar question, is why." Closs was released from a Minnesota hospital on Friday and reunited with her aunt in Wisconsin.

Sheriff Fitzgerald told CNN Closs was "doing great."
