The same night authorities discovered Jayme missing three months ago, police found her parents James and Denise Closs shot dead in their home.
Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron.
Detectives believe Closs was held by suspected abductor, Jake Thomas Petterson, 21, in a rural cabin near where she was spotted, and about 60 miles from her family home in Barron. He was jailed on suspicion of kidnapping and homicide.
But in the end, Fitzgerald said, Jayme ended up saving herself.
Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, said in a telephone interview on Saturday the only thing the family knows for sure is that no one knew Patterson.
Investigators believe Jayme was at the home when her parents were killed, and that Patterson abducted her from there, Fitzgerald said.
Kasinskas said she knew of Patterson but didn't know him well.
"It's a awful feeling when you don't know where your kid is but I don't know how I would react if I was to have mine walk through that door".
"I have no clue who they are", she said.
"My legs started to shake".
At a press conference yesterday Barron County Sheriff Fitzgerald said the teen told the Kasinskas 'he killed my parents and took me'.
Sunday will mark 26 years since a then-10-year-old Beers was rescued from an underground concrete bunker in Bay Shore, New York, where she had been held captive for more than two weeks by a family friend who had lured her to his home with the promise of birthday presents.
Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Justin Tolomeo told reporters: "In cases like this we often need a big break - it was Jayme herself who gave us that break".

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says Patterson's goal was to kidnap Jayme but that the family didn't know him.
A Facebook group called "Healing for Jayme Closs" has set up an address for the public to send letters to the 13-year-old Barron teen and her family. "Believe me, so are we".
The suspect made "great efforts to minimize his forensic footprint at the crime scene", Fitzgerald said, such as shaving his head to avoid leaving behind hair evidence. Jayme had been at home when the killing took place, Fitzgerald said.

Investigators in Wisconsin say they're trying to determine what led the man suspected of kidnapping 13-year-old Jayme Closs to the girl.
Police say he was out on the streets looking for Jayme after she escaped. He said she was largely silent and did not talk about how Patterson had kept her confined. Charles Glynn and Richard Jones said in a statement that they await Patterson's initial court appearance and the filing of charges against him on Monday. It was not immediately known whether the unemployed Patterson had an attorney. He is being held on charges of murder for the killings of Closs' parents and kidnapping.
He has no criminal record, the sheriff said. He did work for one day at the same meat products plant where James and Denise were long-time employees, but authorities said they did not cross paths in Patterson's short time there.
A former classmate, who was not named, said Patterson stayed mostly to himself and was quiet.
She cautioned questions that might seem harmless could be hurtful.
"I don't recall anything that would have explained this, by any means".
"When we said she was found safe and alive, (there were) tears and lots of hugs", Fitzgerald said. Girls ages 12 to 17 are most commonly abducted.
