911 call came from missing teen’s mom’s cell

U.S. & World

The FBI has added 13-year-old Jayme Closs to its top missing persons list and have released information about the 911 call to police the night of her parents’ death.

A 911 dispatch log was released by the Sheriff’s Office revealing that the phone call for ‘help’ made early Monday was from the cell phone of Denise Closs, Jayme’s mother.

When that call was lost, dispatch tried calling Denise’s cell back numerous times but didn’t receive an answer.

And when the landline was tried, dispatch indicated it was disconnected.

The log also shows on the night of the double homicide of Denise and her husband, James, the door of the home located west of Barron was kicked in and multiple rounds were fired.
While the log initially referred to the incident as a suicide, officers later updated it to a homicide.

The department says it has now received around 1,000 tips but is still looking for more information that will lead to Jayme Closs.
