2019-01-15 19:20
RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY SHOTLIST: ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Gordon, Wisconsin - 11 January 2019 1. Wide of sign for Town of Gordon 2. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Kasinskas, Man who took Jayme Closs in: "We saw the neighbour knocking on the door and we could see your big yellow dog. And she knocked and then the door swung open, the dog came in and then here she helps Jayme into the kitchen and says: 'This is Jayme Closs, call 9-1-1.' And then Kristin (his wife) was just coming out of our bedroom where she put our dogs. And I said: 'Kristen, this is Jayme Closs, call 9-1-1 right now.' So she called 9-1-1 and as she was on with the dispatcher, she was able to get from Jayme the suspect's name and the colour of his car. So we were able to get that information to the police instantly." ++BLACK FRAMES++ 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Kasinskas, Man who took Jayme Closs in, responding to question about what state of being Jayme was in: "Tired, skinny. You know, dirty. She hasn't hasn't - probably hasn't bathed in quite a while, if at all. Yeah, she just she looked rough, she looked rough. Yeah. She didn't really have any emotion, she was kind of probably in shock, you know relieved, all that at once and you know to get out of where she was, you know, it's probably too much for her brain to really handle right then." ++BLACK FRAMES++ 4. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Kasinskas, Man who took Jayme Closs in: "She said he was gone and then she said, but he'll be back at midnight. But this was at four o'clock yesterday. And as soon as she got to our house, there was one officer there and he said: 'He is on the road. He's on his way here.' So we had the kids get downstairs and I went to a back door of our house just to make sure that nobody was coming in from the backside of the house. And then within, say, five minutes of them knowing he was in the area, they had him in custody." ++BLACK FRAMES++ 5. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Kasinskas, Man who took Jayme Closs in: "She said when he would have people over, you know friends whatever, that he would hide her so that they didn't know she was there." 6. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeanne Nutter, Woman who first encountered Closs: "She just said: 'I'm lost I don't know where I am.' She said 'I don't know where I am' a couple of times and I explained, 'you're in Gordon, Wisconsin.' And then when I knew who she was, I said, 'Jayme, you're really an hour and a half or so from home.'" 7. Mid of Nutter's dog 8. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeanne Nutter, Woman who first encountered Closs: "No, it's not about me, it's about her and that she had the courage to leave that house and to find help and what a brave kid. What a brave, brave kid." 9. Mid of Nutter and her dog 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeanne Nutter, Woman who first encountered Closs: "She was a little bit away from me. She was asking me for help. Saying she was lost - she didn't know where she was." 11. Mid of Nutter and her dog 12. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeanne Nutter, Woman who first encountered Closs: "As I got closer to her, she sort of fell in to me and told me who she was." (Reporter: "What did she say?) "She said 'I'm Jayme'. And I recognized her immediately. So then, my other brain kicked in and said keep this kid safe and don't bring your to your cabin because I'm alone with just my dog. So I went to one house and no one was there. So then I went to Peter and Kristen's house because I knew she's a teacher. She'd be home. She would get it, she would let me in. So I knocked on the door and said: 'You need to let me in and call 9-1-1 because I believe I have Jayme with me.'" 13.
