Authorities say a missing teen from Barron County in western Wisconsin was at home when her parents were fatally shot, and continue asking the public for any tips as a nationwide search continues for 13-year-old Jayme Closs. “Is it a random attack or is it a targeted attack? I don’t know that answer. That is why those leads are so important,” said Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald. The tipline is 855-744-3879. Fitzgerald says investigators have no suspects or persons of interest at this point.
Police received a tip from Miami about an S-U-V with Wisconsin plates and a passenger who might have been Jayme, but Fitzgerald said Wednesday afternoon, “We have received no tips of a credible sighting…. If there was something credible that I wanted out, you would hear it from this podium.”
Fitzgerald says, “We want to bring Jayme home and put that smile back in her family’s hands.”
