Bad guys are everywhere, and they do terrible things. Sometimes it’s sad that we can never be too careful with our kids, ourselves, our loved ones. We would do anything to keep them safe, but how much is safe enough?
Like many other young kids, Jayme Closs was the target of one of the bad guys even though she didn’t know it.
Her only crime was being seen boarding the school bus, and while she was the only target, her parents were caught in the crossfire.
In October 2018, Jayme Closs was kidnapped from her family home in Barron, Wisconsin, where her kidnapper brutally murdered her parents. She was held captive for 88 days until her escape.
