Jayme Closs Disappearance
At the night (October 15th, 2018) of her disappearance, a 911 call was made from the home of the Closs family around 1:00 am. While the operator did not speak with anyone, they heard a disturbance and a lot of yelling. The dispatcher attempted to call the number back, but they received the voicemail of Denise Closs. Upon arrival four minutes after the call, police noticed that the front door had been kicked in, and her parents, James Closs (56 years old) and Denise Closs (46 years old), were shot and had died from gunshot wounds.
The family dog was still in the home when officers arrived, and it was believed that Jayme was home at the time of the shooting, based on details in the 911 call and evidence from home. No gun was recovered after searching the home.
Two vehicles were spotted on surveillance footage near to the home, with police identifying them as vehicles of interest. The vehicles were; a red or orange 2008 – 2014 Dodge Challenger and a black 2006 – 2010 Ford Edge or 2004 – 2010 Acura MDX. Closeby Neighbors also claimed to hear two gunshots around 00:30 am on October 15 but dismissed it as hunting was common around their home and did not call 911.
