Man Murders Woman in Her Home in Suspected Imitation of Jayme Closs’s Kidnapping

A Wisconsin man shot and killed his family members, then broke inside of the house of a woman that he had been harassing through texts and shot her in what police speculate to be an imitation of a deadly kidnapping case from last year.

During a news conference on Tuesday, Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk said the suspect, 33-year-old Ritchie German Jr., shot his 66-year-old mother Bridget German; 32-year-old brother Douglas German, and 8-year-old nephew Calvin Harris, who was Douglas’ son, while inside their Lafayette County home on or before Saturday morning, Fox6Now reported.
