Updated: March 6, 2021

President Donald Trump and conservative media outlets have repeatedly claimed that dangerous immigrants were the ones bringing crimes to the United States, even though the facts have repeatedly proven that the biggest killers here are caucasian Americans with no link or influence from the outside world.

On Thursday, another killer, not a violent  rapist immigrant, who violently killed husband and wife three months ago and kidnapped their daughter was arrested.

The suspected murderer is 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson, of Gordon. 

A criminal complaint charging Patterson with two counts of homicide and one count of kidnapping is “expected to be filed next week,” the District Attorney’s Office said Friday, according to the Star Tribune. He was arrested Thursday on homicide and kidnapping charges.

Missing Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs found after flagging down dog walker

After killing her parents, the suspect kidnapped Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs and kept her for 88 excruciating days.

Luckily, she was found alive after she reportedly escaped from Patterson.

Douglas County Sheriff Thomas Dalbec said Patterson surrendered peacefully and was arrested “just down the road from the residence.” His first court appearance has not been scheduled.

Jayme Closs was found alive on Thursday, January 10, 2018, after she went missing nearly three months ago.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Patterson, killed Closs’s parents to kidnap her.

Closs vanished October 15 after James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were gunned down inside their home in Barron County, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

Officials determined Closs was inside the home when her parents were murdered, but then the trail went cold.
