'A lot of yelling' in 911 call from Closs home

- The release of the 911 call log in the Jayme Closs case is shedding light on the early moments of the investigation.

The 911 call log shows a call came from Denise Closs' cell phone at 12:56 a.m. Monday morning. The dispatcher noted they "could hear a lot of yelling." When they tried calling the number back, they were unable to leave a voicemail. After tracking the phone to the address, crews responded to the Closs home.

When officials arrived, they found James Closs near the door. He appeared to have answered the door, which was kicked in. Officers found multiple spent rounds. About five minutes later, police found Denise Closs. Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says both James and Denise Closs were fatally shot.

According to the log, Jayme Closs was listed as a missing child at 3:57 a.m.

Five days later, Jayme remains missing and is believed to be in danger.

The Barron County Sheriff says the 911 call audio will not be released due to the active investigation.
