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.

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
