The New York Post has released exclusive new images reportedly taken from inside the cabin in Wisconsin where 13-year-old Jayme Closs was allegedly kept captive by the same man who killed her parents in October.
Among the images are exterior shots including piles of trash, Christmas lights hanging from the garage, and a yard containing junked autos and bikes. Other items included a “U.S. Armed Forces Survival Guide”, and a Monopoly game on the floor
The residence itself contained a welcome sign above the front door along with a plaque designating the property as “Patterson’s retreat.”
A book titled "U.S. Armed Forces Survival Guide" could be seen through a window. Outside, an empty but new-looking box of female adult diapers lay on a trash pile.

A suspect in the double homicide and kidnapping has been identified as Jake Patterson, as previously reported by CrimeOnline.
He is believed to have lived at the home with his brother and father. The suspect’s dad reportedly transferred the title to a credit union just over a week after Closs’ disappearance.
The home appears to be about 200 feet from an adjacent road.
Empty milk jugs and alcoholic beverage containers can be seen littered outside and the inside of the cabin appears to be under construction.
More alcohol can be seen in images of the interior, along with adult diapers for women and a board game. The sparsely furnished structure contains a few chairs.
