    It would even be someone that was fired years ago and has been ruminating and plotting ever since. It could be someone casually reporting to work every day still. We just don't know. Such a bizarre case. I keep vacillating between random wacko and some unknown side of the parents life that got them involved with shady people. I just don't have a solid theory on this one, and it is so perplexing!

    Amateur opinion and speculation

    I know this post was written a couple days ago, but I want to respond to it anyway. Hopefully it'll put some theories on the back burner. I just wanted to clarify that Turtle Lake is partially in Barron County and partially in Polk County, but none of it is in St. Croix County. I've never heard of any arrest for any sex crime at the casino, but I've heard of some robberies, drug busts, etc. at the hotel there. The one "crime" I remember hearing about at the casino was back when they got in trouble for removing the aces from the black jack decks. I have no doubt there were others that happened (theft, fights/assault, etc.). I also know that they do have good surveillance there because you'll be escorted out or to an office almost immediately if you pick up a chip/ticket that isn't yours or take anything from a machine that was left there by someone else.MOO

    That usually means they work 12 hour shifts, and the days 2 on, 3 off then 3 on, 2 off average out to 5 days a week (4 one week and 6 the next). The starting times for that job would mean they would work noon to midnight, 4 pm to 4 am or somewhere in between. It also means they have someone doing that job during those same hours on opposite days, the same days on opposite hours (midnight to noon, etc.) and opposite days with opposite hours. How many drivers there are on each shift would depend on the size of the trucks and the amount of feed being transported. I don't really see it being the driver, but by the time someone on the midnight to noon shift finished loading, paperwork, etc., he could be passing the house about the the time of the murders. I don't want to place blame where it doesn't belong, but I wonder when that position opened up. MOO

    I keep thinking about the 2 vehicles of interest, i wonder why LE limited it to just two? We know the 911 call ended at 12.54 am and that police were there at 1.00 am so the perp(s) would presumably have left the property at 12.55 or just after. We know the Sheriff stated they were looking for vehicles of interest between 12.30 - 1.30 but surely any vehicles seen on CCTV nearest to the Closs home around 12.55 or just afterwards should have been treated as suspicious, no matter how innocuous they might have seemed. What was it about these 2 vehicles that stood out to LE that night?

    Agree. Most truckers who kill pick up their victims hitchhiking or at truck stops or rest areas. I don't think Jayme fits their usual victim profile either. Not impossible, but improbable IMO.

    I used to think this, until the other night. We had storms in our area, they knocked out our power around 8:00pm. At 11:00pm we still had no power and someone bangs on our front door. Startled us, greatly. Hubby didn’t even think, he went to the door and hollered through the door, “Who is it?” Turns out it was the electric company, letting us know they were going to be in our backyard. In the moment, being startled, grabbing a weapon never even crossed our minds.

    The longer this goes on the more my initial thoughts are turning to opinion. Barron has a huge meth problem>meth arrests of people very near the Closs home (brings other users to the area so exposure of family and home OR local user didn't pay, ripped off, or made someone angry enough to find the users home and burst in but wrong house since specific homes are hard to find even on google maps> possibly someone in meth rage so no motive needed (I've seen cases that are so similar to this and much harder to find perp/s)> burst in home kill mom and dad>people involved with drugs have a silent network of who knows who and what they are involved in even if they never met>someone may have decided Jayme could be valuable. Many more possible scenarios with theses factors as well. Little or no evidence due to being in and out within minutes and not the result of careful planning. All that said I am hoping LE has an idea of who they are looking for. Possibly needing some type of evidence to back them up to move forward?
    Different type of crime so just mentioning. I was a little surprised at the number of child sex sting operations that have been going on for some time un that area(google Barron sex sting operation).
    Just my speculation on all of the above. sorry if choppy. Keeps freezing on me

    OT but After seeing the updated acronyms I realize there isn't one for "just my thoughts". JMO doesn't fit in some cases.

    There are people who have a strange outlook on life that perceive grievances when no one else would even see a grievance.

    Years ago, before cell phones, there was a guy that someone was going to bring to a party. The driver, who was going to bring the guy to the party, broke down in the middle of nowhere . He was unable to pick up the guy to bring him to the party.

    The guy who was supposed to get the ride was enraged. No amount of logical explanation would sway him in his perception that it was a deliberate act.

    The perceived problem could be so nothing that it would not register on anyone’s radar.

    my daughter just did a dance competition, that is what her and should have been doing. heart breaking. I have been watching the comps to see if we go against barren at all, I know our school will give the team extra support.

    Because she could describe the person? Recognized him/them?

    You live near there? If so, Can you let LE know they need to give out info so the public can help! :)

    Yes, but he had guns in the home. If I was investigating loud noises on my front porch in the middle of the night, I'd take my gun with me.

    Yes, I said that before, someone who was fired or reprimanded or quit. There have been workplace shootings before. If you're mad enough you can find out where the person lives and go there. Funny how this happened after he got home from work that night!:(

    Yes, the timing suggests he was tracked. The fact they waited until he was inside -along with the wife- makes this appear to be a very personal attack. Where they were shot could further reinforce the personal nature of the attack. (Such as face/groin).

    I keep wondering if Jayme was originally supposed to be on a field trip or elsewhere that night.

    When those pics were originally posted on here it reminded me of how high the stats are on familiarity with victim. Hmmm

    With the conversation about meth issues in arron County I thought I'd offer this site that ranks WI counties based upon the number of meth related arrests. I know just that number doesn't reflect the whole picture but just some added info.

    Rankings

    Has it been confirmed that James definitely worked that Sunday? I know it has been reported that Denise told family members James was working that day, but I can't recall if LE has verified he actually was at the turkey plant/some other unknown job, and if so, what hours he worked.

    Then why not just kill her too?
    Someone prepared to kill a man and a woman in cold blood, why would they not just shoot any other witnesses as opposed to burden themselves with a walking, talking person who if they were to escape, would almost certainly see them convicted.
    It doesn’t make sense unless Jayme was indeed the target of a planned kidnapping or.....
