When news of her disappearance broke, Hormel Foods — the parent company of the Jennie-O Turkey Store where Closs’ dad James and mom Denise worked — promised to give $25,000 to whoever returned her to her family.
As Jayme Closs freed herself, however, she will be the one to benefit from the reward.
"We are overjoyed at the news of Jayme's safe return," Jim Snee, the president and chief executive officer of the Minnesota-based company, told CNN. "Her bravery and strength have truly inspired our team members around the world."
Steve Lykken, the president of Jennie-O Turkey Store, agreed, saying that despite the double murder, the world is ecstatic that the teen is alive.
"While we are still mourning the loss of longtime family members Jim and Denise, we are so thankful for Jayme's brave escape and that she is back in Barron," he said.
Following her escape, Patterson was arrested and admitted to his crimes.
