No clues, no sightings in search for Jayme Closs

U.S. & World

BARRON, WIS. (KARE) The autopsy has been completed for the parents of a missing western Wisconsin girl, who were found dead in their home.

According to the Barron County Medical Examiner, the deaths of James and Denise Closs have been ruled a homicide. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said at a Wednesday afternoon press conference that both were found with gunshot wounds. 

Their daughter, Jayme Closs, is still missing.

“Based on our investigation thus far, we believe Jayme was in the home at the time of the homicides and we believe she is in danger,” Fitzgerald said.

They believe Jayme was present at the time of her parents’ deaths due to evidence from the investigation, and partly from the 911 call.

At this point, they don’t know if it was a targeted attack or if it was a random incident.
