Denise Closs and her husband, James Closs, have been identified as the parents who were found dead inside the family home in Barron, Wisconsin. Their 13-year-old daughter, Jayme Closs, is missing, and an Amber Alert has been issued for the Wisconsin girl.
On the evening of October 15, 2018, the Barron County Sheriff identified the deceased parents as James Closs, 56 and Denise Closs, 46. “They are husband and wife and the mother and father of Jayme, the missing 13 year old,” Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said in a statement that he posted to Facebook. There is a massive law enforcement effort to locate the missing teen, involving drones and other techniques, and the FBI has joined in the effort.

1. Denise Closs Posted Many Photos of Jayme Closs on Facebook & Authorities Haven’t Identified a Suspect
Authorities have been very cryptic about what they release in the case. For example, they haven’t specified a motive, a suspect, or suspect vehicle description. They say they received a 911 call, but they haven’t released who made it. They have not released the cause of death of Denise Closs and James Closs.
On Facebook, Denise’s page is filled with photos of Jayme and a deceased relative she wrote that she was missing. The Sheriff released the parents names hours after the bodies were found.
