Sheriff says parents of missing Wisconsin girl were shot to death

In the news conference, the sheriff also revealed for the first time that evidence shows Jayme was at the home at the time of the slayings, but he did not reveal that evidence beyond mentioning the 911 call.

Fitzgerald told reporters Tuesday that Jayme is "missing and endangered", noting that there is an active Amber Alert for the teen.

Fitzgerald said Wednesday that the sheriff's deputies arrived at the family's home only four minutes after that call was placed. Dispatchers heard the sound of a "disturbance" but there was no conversation between the caller and the dispatcher.

Investigators have been searching for 13-year-old Jayme Closs since deputies responding to a 911 call early Monday found her parents dead in their home in Barron. Their 13 year-old daughter Jayme Closs was missing.

It is unknown who made the 911 call. It came from a cell phone.

Sheriff Fitzgerald set a community meeting for Barron County residents only "to offer me the opportunity to connect with the citizens of Barron County, to have a private dialog about how the community is doing". "That's the main point", he said. I will not interrupt this investigation for anybody to have any information that's not necessary, except for the essential people behind me and their staff.

"We have over 200 law enforcement workers on the ground right now".

Animation film fest rescinds Kobe Bryant invite after outcry
A petition popped up on change.org making the case to rethink their decision about having Kobe apart of such an event. He wrote in a statement Wednesday that the festival's stakeholders chose to drop Bryant to keep its focus on films.

For the third straight day Wednesday, Oct. 17, local law enforcement and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were searching for the teen.

Community members in western Wisconsin gathered for a candlelight vigil on Tuesday, bringing together family members, friends and neighbors who are all praying for a missing girl's safe return. The gathering was not at the Closs home.

Barron Area School District Superintendent Diane Tremblay described Jayme as "a sweet, quiet girl who is a loyal friend and loves to dance".

But that claim was later dismissed by Barron County Sherriff's Office as "not credible".

The sheriff says he can not say for sure that it is not Jayme Closs in surveillance video from Florida released Tuesday. Investigators have said they think she may have been home when her parents were killed and taken in the moments after the attack, but have not released further details. He said Miami police did not check with Wisconsin authorities before tweeting information about the tip and reminded the public that updates would come from the sheriff's department. The Associated Press reports that she may have been seen with two "well-dressed, bearded men".

It's about 1,746 miles from Barron to Miami.

Fitzgerald said investigators still have a "100 per cent expectation that she's alive", but that even though they've received more than 400 tips, none have been of a credible sighting. Share this information as we put it out. The sheriff said authorities can't say whether the Closses were targeted.
