Closs, family members thank everyone for ongoing support

BARRON, WI — A 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who spent 88 days in captivity after a violent abduction from her home is thanking supporters from around the world.

Jayme Closs was taken in October in an attack that included the shotgun slayings of her parents at the family’s northwest Wisconsin home.

A 21-year-old man is charged with kidnapping and murder.

In a statement, Jayme and the Closs family say the gifts and kind words she has received “have been a source of great comfort to her.”
