Why did he choose Jayme Closs?: family

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The family of Jayme Closs says the biggest question they're grappling with is why the alleged kidnapper choose the 13-year-old Wisconsin teen.

In an interview on CBS This Morning, relatives praised Closs' strength.

"For getting out.

For making it.

For the power that she has.

You know, I mean, that she took the power away from this man.

That she did this.

I mean it's just incredible." The man accused of kidnapping Closs after murdering her parents is due in court on Monday to face charges, days after the teen ended her 88-day-ordeal by escaping the rural home where she was held hostage.

Jake Patterson, 21, was arrested shortly after Jayme Closs' rescue on Thursday, but police have so far said little about what might have motivated him to target the girl and her parents.

The parents were discovered shot dead in their home in October, sparking a massive search for the missing teen.

Thousands of volunteers and hundreds of law enforcement officers had searched the small town of Barron after James and Denise Closs were found shot dead in their home on Oct.

15, their front door blown open with a shotgun, their daughter gone.

Closs' public defenders, Charles Glynn and Richard Jones, told reporters on Sunday they understood the emotions surrounding the case but would rely on the judicial system to treat Patterson fairly.

They declined to comment when asked whether Patterson had confessed to police.

"We have a job to do, in terms of representing our client and protecting his rights and his interests, but we also understand the pain and emotion that has been generated within this community," Jones said.

Closs managed to flee from her captivity in the remote northern part of the state when Patterson was not at home, and was found by a woman walking her dog on Thursday afternoon, Fitzgerald said.

Authorities said that Patterson had targeted Closs for kidnapping, but they had yet to determine why.

He was unemployed and had no prior criminal record, investigators said.

A formal criminal complaint was expected to be filed on Monday, which could offer additional details that investigators have gleaned thus far.
