Closs Kidnapper Now Refusing To Cooperate With Presentence Investigation

A probation and parole agent tells the Barron County Circuit Court judge the man who admits he kidnapped Jayme Closs and killed her parents is now refusing to cooperate with the presentence investigation.

Twenty-one-year-old Jake Patterson says he's acting on his lawyer's advice. Patterson entered a guilty plea last month and he is scheduled for sentencing May 24th. He admits he grabbed the 13-year-old girl after killing her parents last October, then holding her against her will for 88 days.
