Patterson, 21, faces up to life in prison on charges that he killed James and Denise Closs and kidnapped their 13-year-old daughter Jayme and held her captive for almost three months.
On Jan. 10, Patterson left the house and told Jayme he would be gone for five or six hours. That's when the teen made her getaway.
Jayme escaped from a cabin in Douglas County on January 10 and flagged down a dogwalker for help. That's when she was able to track down a woman who was walking a dog. The elder Patterson responded, "I love you".
Patterson told investigators that he saw Jayme get on the school bus on Highway 8 during his drives to work.
Patterson took her to a cabin and said no one could know she was there or "bad things could happen to her", the complaint said.
Patterson had no connection to the Closs family.
Patterson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the killings of James and Denise Closs, as well as kidnapping and burglary counts.
He's being held on a $5 million bond. Since her reunion, family members have posted updates online on how she's doing.
