Jayme Closs Suspect Wants to Talk to Jayme: "I Love Her"

The suspect in the Jayme Closs case got very candid in a phone interview over the weekend.

According to CBS, WCCO reporter Jennifer Mayerle spoke with Jake Patterson over the phone. Patterson, who is accused of kidnapping Jayme Closs and killing her parents, said that he wanted to talk to the girl but "knows he can't."

"I love her," he told Mayerle.
