The story of Jayme Closs's miraculous escape from Jake Patterson has filled our newsfeeds for several days now. The latest development in the case involves the $50,000 reward that was offered for information about the previously missing teenager.


Jayme Closs is only 13 years old, but she has experienced more trauma than anyone should at any age.

Closs went missing in October of 2018 after her parents were murdered.

On Thursday, Closs was discovered by a discovered by a woman, Jeanne Nutter, walking her dog 60 miles from Closs's home.

Nutter went on to bring the young girl to Peter and Kristin Kasinskas' home.

The Kasinskas proceeded to call 911 which led to the subsequent arrest of her abductor and parent's murderer, 21-year-old Jake Patterson.

When Jayme was still missing, the FBI offered a reward of $25,000 to anyone who could provide information about her whereabouts. The company that the Closses worked for, Jennie-O Turkey Store, went on to match that, bringing the total amount of the reward to $50,000.

Since her escape and recovery last week, questions about whom that reward money should go to have sprung up.

At first glance, the money seems to belong to either Nutter or the Kasinskas. However, on Tuesday, Peter Kasinska told the Associated Press that he and his wife don't want the money. In fact, they believe the person truly deserving of the reward is Jayme Closs herself.

In the words of Peter Kasinska,

"She got herself out."

Many people are applauding the couple for their consideration and selflessness.





Many agree that Jayme is the true recipient of the reward.





Nutter has yet to share her opinion on the situation.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
