Jacob Wetterling finally found

Post by PurpleMustReign » Tue Sep 06, 2016 5:11 pm

After 27 years, Jacob Wetterling has been found. Unfortunately, it is not the outcome we had hoped for. Those of you outside of MN may not know the name, but anyone in or near MN who was alive back in the late 1980s will remember the night Jacob Wetterling was kidnapped. The monster who kidnapped him told the courts what he did, and it just sickens me that anyone would do this to any other person, let alone a child. You can read the article below and see what happened that night. It is a sad, sad story.

I read this earlier. The details are awful. The heck is wrong with this guy? At least the parents have closure now.

Hadn't heard of the case. I'm surprised the family wanted to be in the room and hear all of that.

Sadly the parents or families have imagined every possible horrible thing for years and just want it to be over and

bury their lost. The guy who co founded the FBI BAU unit wrote a really good book on this subject (really tough

to read at points (graphic)) Journey into Darkness Author John Douglas,
