Jayme Closs' alleged kidnapper applied to a job at a liquor store the day before the teen girl's escape and his arrest.
KARE 11 reports that Jake Patterson submitted an online application to a liquor store in Superior describing himself as "hardworking" and a "quick learner."

Patterson did not list his short time at Jennie-O and Saputo Cheese in his work history.
Of course, there appears to be some embellishment on this application, because the Marines say he was kicked out after 5 weeks. And authorities say he was not working at all at the time of the kidnapping in Oct 2018. https://t.co/zD7P4ayuPz

In a tweet by KARE 11's reporter Lou Raguse, Patterson listed five months with the U.S. Marines, however the Marines say he was discharged after just five weeks.
Thirteen-year-old Closs escaped from Patterson's cabin in Gordon, Wis. Thursday after being held in captivity for 88 days. The criminal complaint describes that Patterson became fixated on Closs after seeing her board a school bus while on his way to work.
According to a criminal complaint, Patterson has confessed to killing both Closs' parents in their home and has since been charged with homicide, kidnapping and burglary.
