During Patterson's sentencing, Jayme said she couldn't return to the house. "I felt safe in my home and I loved my room and all of my belongings. He took all of that," she said in a letter she wrote that was read by a guardian in court. "I don't want to even see my home or my stuff because of the memory of that night. My parents and my home were the most important things in my life."
