Sheriff Fitzgerald keeping hope Jayme Closs is still alive, calls it the worst crime in county history
“We’ve had shootings, we have had murders in this county, but this one affects a mom and a dad and a 13-year-old girl is missing,” Fitzgerald said.
Jayme Closs’ disappearance, and the horrific murder of her parents, is still felt in the Barron community.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice is sending resources to the Barron School District – like trained therapists, school resource officers and comfort dogs.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said the two were shot to death and he believes their daughter Jayme was home at the time. Jayme has been missing since the shooting.
The event comes two days after James and Denise Closs were found dead in their rural Barron home. Their daughter Jayme remains missing.
