BARRON, WI — The home where 13-year-old Jayme Closs was kidnapped from is being demolished, according to the Barron County Sheriff's Department.

The demolition started today. This comes about a month after it was reported the home would be for sale.

The house in Barron, Wisconsin was the scene of a home invasion where 21-year-old Jake Patterson used a shotgun to open the door of the Closs home, killing Closs' parents. He killed Jayme's mother, Denise, before kidnapping Jayme and holding her in the bedroom of his Gordon, Wisconsin home for 88 days.

Patterson is serving two consecutive life sentences for the murders on top of 40 years for the kidnapping.
