One year after she was abducted and her parents murdered, 14-year-old Jayme Closs is moving forward with her life.

Family attorney Chris Gramstrup spoke at a press conference at the Barron County Sheriff’s Department:

“She’s moving forward courageously and she’s reclaiming her life.”

Gramstrup read a statement from Jayme, in which she said she’s feeling stronger every day. Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald honored investigators on the case: “Jayme, thank you for teaching us the true meaning of courage, resilience and hope.”

Jake Paterson is serving life in prison for the crimes.
