BARRON COUNTY (WKOW) -- Authorities released their investigation records on Friday into the disappearance of Barron County teen Jayme Closs and the murder of her parents.

Jayme Closs had been missing since October 15, 2018, when her parents were found murdered in their home in Barron. Authorities then spent the next 88 days searching for her.

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, from Gordon, Wisconsin, was captured by Douglas County deputies Thursday shortly after Closs was found alive. Patterson was captured based on a description of his vehicle that Closs gave to the sheriff's office.

Patterson currently is serving two life terms for the murders of her parents.

The documents come from the Barron County Sheriff's office, Douglas County Sheriff's office and the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Department of Criminal Investigation.

Much of the information in the reports has already been made public either by police following Jayme's escape, or during Patterson's court proceedings.

Note: KBJR 6 is currently reviewing the documents for new information in the case. Check back for more details.
