BARRON, Wis. — A 32-year-old man is facing criminal charges after allegedly breaking into home of a missing Barron teen and stealing items of her clothing.

Kyle Jaenke-Annis, of Cameron, was arrested early Saturday at the home where James and Denise Closs were found dead. The Closs’s daughter, 13-year-old Jayme, has been missing since their deaths.

Police say they were notified by motion-activated cameras that Jaenke-Annis entered the Closs home at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday through a patio door. The cameras were installed during the investigation into the couple’s death and the teen’s disappearance.

On arrival, police ordered Jaenke-Annis out of the home and recovered several items he had taken from inside. The items included two tank tops, a dress and underwear.

When asked why he had stolen these specific items, Jaenke-Annis allegedly said he believed these were items that “people wouldn’t miss” and he was “curious what size Jayme was.”

Jaenke-Annis faces charges of burglary and felony bail jumping for committing a new crime in violation of bond. Jaenke-Annis had previously been released from jail on bond for a burglary charge, which remains an open case.

  1. Wow let’s keep a close eye on this one. Not only from what he said to police but that mug shot. He wanted to know what size she was?! Too bad what he did won’t put him away for very long. Seems like a dangerous person.

  2. WOW, this is scary! Could Jayme be part of a human trafficking ring? Seems like this character would be a prime suspect in her disappearance.
