Authorities on Friday identified Jake Thomas Patterson as the only suspect in the Jayme Closs kidnapping. He is also the suspect in the murder of Closs's parents — James, 56, and Denise, 46.

Patterson is 21 years old. Closs escaped from a home where Patterson lived in the 14100 block of South Eau Claire Acres Circle, near the town of Gordon.

Here's what we know about the suspect so far:

Where is he now
Patterson is in custody in Barron County. He is being held pending charges of first degree murder and kidnapping. Barron County District Attorney Brain Wright said at a Friday morning press conference that charges are not expected to be filed until next week.

Patterson has no known previous criminal record.

How did police find him
Jayme Closs approached Jeanne Nutter who was walking her dog Thursday. Nutter quickly took Closs to a neighbor's home, where they called police.

The Douglas County Sheriff's department responded. Using a description of his vehicle, they were able to pull over and arrest Patterson Thursday night. 

There are no other suspects.

Where did he grow up
The cabin where Patterson held Closs is in an enclave called Eau Claire Acres in the town of Gordon in Douglas County.

Neighbor Daphne Ronning said the Patterson family moved to the house 15 years ago and that Jake and his brother grew up there. Both attended Northwood School in Minong. Patterson's parents moved to another home, but Jake Patterson and his brother continued to use the Eau Claire Acres home.

Gordon is home to about 645 people in a heavily forested region where logging is the top industry. Eau Claires Acres, where Closs was found, is about six miles east of the town. The area is described as a neighborhood with cabin-like homes. The region is popular for tourists who rent or own cabins. During winter, the area is less populated.

Did he have a job
Patterson was unemployed.

How did he know Jayme Closs or her family

Police said his intention was to target Jayme Closs, not her parents. At a press conference Friday, police said they have no evidence that Patterson communicated with Jayme Closs via social media.

This story is developing.
