Sheriff: Man who killed family before shooting woman, her parents may have been emulating Jayme Closs kidnapper


CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. – By the time he blasted his way into a stranger’s house Sunday night, apparently with the aim of kidnapping a young woman who lived there, Ritchie German Jr. had already shot to death his mother, brother, and 8-year-old nephew at his family’s home, authorities said.

German, 33, meticulously cleaned the first crime scene, arranging the bodies of his brother and nephew on a bed in a room that had been stripped of all other items. He lied about his mother’s whereabouts when her employer called for her Saturday. He may even have slept at the family townhouse that night after scrubbing blood off the kitchen and bathroom floors, said Chippewa County Sheriff James Kowalczyk.
