Patterson surrendered peacefully and was arrested "just down the road from the residence" Closs Douglas County Sheriff Thomas Dalbec previously said.
The update from authorities came a day after they announced that Closs, 13, was found alive following a almost three-month disappearance.
The 13-year-old is now in the care of other family members after her 88-day ordeal in captivity.
Jayme Closs' suspected kidnapper had no prior criminal record, however, detectives are now looking into his brother who was convicted of sexually assaulting a minor.
"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me,"' said another neighbor, Kristin Kasinskas.
Someone blasted open the door of James and Denise Closs' home near Barron with a shotgun in October, gunned the couple down and made off with their 13-year-old daughter, Jayme Closs.
Officials say Closs is doing well after having been missing from the Barron area since October 15.
It's unclear exactly what Jayme experienced - including whether she was coerced with threats or physically abused - so people must be careful how they interact with her, said Duane Bowers, a trauma therapist who works with families of missing and exploited children and adults.
"I'm just happy that she's safe".
The cabin is in Eau Claire Acres, a development about 10 miles outside the tiny town of Gordon, nestled in the dense evergreen forests of northwestern Wisconsin that are popular with vacationers in the summer and snowmobilers and ATV riders in the winter. "He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know Denise or Jim", Naiberg said. Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, was arrested and jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges shortly after Closs was found.
Straub also said Jayme's case brings up the issue of victim privacy.
"I'm lost and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Jayme told Nutter. As an example, Fitzgerald said Patterson shaved his head to avoid leaving any hair as evidence during the assault. Police are still investigating and say 'she is doing as well as circumstances allow'. "We know he lived in that house alone", he said. "She did not go into detail about how she got out of the house or anything like that".
Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg said in a telephone interview on Saturday that no one in the family knew Patterson.
Patterson is scheduled to go to court Monday where he is expected to be formally charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping.
Jayme was pictured smiling alongside her relieved aunt Jennifer Naiberg Smith, who gave permission for the image to be used after their emotional reunion.
Jayme Closs, the teen who was abducted after her parents were murdered, has been pictured for the first time since her escape.
"Jayme had a pretty good night's sleep". At some point on Thursday, she escaped the home on foot and found her way to safety.
