    MADISON (AP) -- Photos of the Wisconsin cabin where a man suspected of kidnapping Jayme Closs allegedly held the teenager show an unfinished ceiling, a three-car garage and an empty box of adult female diapers in the trash.


    Investigators believe Jake Thomas Patterson broke into Jayme's home in October, killed her parents and abducted her. She was missing for almost three months before a woman walking her dog near Gordon, Wisconsin, found her on the road. Jayme said she had escaped from Patterson's cabin nearby.

    Photos published by the New York Post show the cabin's living area, complete with a refrigerator, white kitchen cabinets and an old television. The ceiling is not finished.

    Exterior shots show a lean-to covering firewood, a three-car garage and an empty box of adult female diapers in a trash can. A sign over the front door reads "Pattersons Retreat."

    A GoFundMe account has been established to help Jayme with her recovery.
