I assume this story leaves out Closs being raped multiple times. She escaped when he left the house for several hours. I'm assuming she didn't try to escape before this attempt because she was terrified and/or didn't know when he was gone.
There hasn't been any charges of sexual assault that I've heard yet. There was a bond for him & usually I read when there's charges of sexual assault there's no bond. I think someone said it above but they may have left out the sexual assault part so Jayme wouldn't have to testify & relive the horror. Also, so her name isn't permanently tied to the sexual assault part.
It said in another article that Jake saw one of the boxes was moved he used to box her in under the bed & he hit Jayme hard in her back with a cleaning object or something. So she was likely scared to death to try to escape. Also she saw this man murder both her parents so she knows what he's capable of.
I can't imagine he kidnapped her just to have a house mate. Ya, I imagined she was terrified to try leaving. I expected to read she was kept in a basement dungeon or chained to a wall or something, not that it took her 89 days to find a time when he left the house for more than a few minutes.
I don't know why they'd give this guy bond. He killed 2 people in cold blood so he could kidnap and rape their daughter. His guilt and life time in prison is all but a forgone conclusion. What would he lose by trying to flee.
