Wade Wilson made several bombshell jailhouse phone calls on Monday to his now ex-girlfriend, Melisa Montanez.

WINK News Investigative Reporters Allison Gormly and Lauren Sweeney stopped by to see Montanez, and found Montanez on the phone with Wilson, who was calling her from a recorded Lee County Jail phone line.

Cape Coral detectives say Wade is a person of interest in the deaths of Kristine Melton and Diane Ruiz.

During those calls, Wilson told Montanez about the murders of two women and why he did it.
