Jacob Wetterling

Jacob Wetterling, age 11

On October 22, 1989, eleven year old Jacob Wetterling was abducted near his home in St. Joseph, Minnesota. He has been missing ever since.

In 2010, I began researching the Jacob Wetterling abduction, which took place in a Minnesota town not far from mine. It’s a case that shook our state to the core, and like so many others, I crave answers and resolution for the Wetterling family.

My focus in writing about Jacob’s case has been to stick to the facts. I have interviewed several key people who have had a direct connection to the case, and I continue to write about it as more information comes available.

Can you help solve the case?
