    Former FBI boss reflects on Heinrich, Wetterling case
    Dana Thiede, KARE 4:17 p.m. EST November 12, 2015

    [...]

    Garber was the man who was responsible for leading the investigation into Jacob's kidnapping 26 years ago, and the case has been a presence in his life in the decades since.

    [...]

    "I don't ever remember a news conference like this about the case, so I assume, like everybody else does, that there had to be really good reasons for all of those officials to get in front of a camera and publicly say what they said," Garber reasoned.

    "I also listen carefully for evidence, and what I saw was evidence against Heinrich that he is a terrible person and ought not to be on the street where he can hurt or abuse or exploit children... but I was carefully listening for evidence that he kidnapped Jacob and that I haven't heard."

    [...]

    "People don't know that what they know... one piece of conversation they might have heard could be what we really, really need and if you don't report it, shame on you," Garber said.

    "You need to call law enforcement. So they get many, many calls, they want the calls, they'll determine which of them is significant and what can be followed up on, and this is a good time, a time to really come forward."

    Here's a comparison of the younger DJH (on the left) with the drawing of the younger man who had attempted an abduction of a boy named Andrew (on the right) earlier in Summer of 1989 in St. Joe.

    Van still haunts St. Joseph residents
    January 22, 2015 - by Stuart Goldschen
    news@thenewsleaders.com

    [...]

    They’re looking specifically for the van in question, described as a tan 1970s model Ford with rust on the bottom, a white bumper and a cracked, blue bug deflector in front. The utility-type vehicle has six-ply bias blackwall truck tires, two rear windows and possibly side windows.

    The driver was described as a white male in his late 20s with glasses and dark brown hair in bangs, dark eyes, slim build and fair complexion.

    [...]

    The attempted abduction took place in early July in an isolated rural St. Joseph residential area. The FBI said the man driving the van approached the 10-year-old boy, asked him his age and told him to get in the vehicle. The boy fled and the man drove away.

    The incident was not publicized at the time and investigative measures were routine until Jacob was abducted Oct. 22 and a connection was suspected. More than 1,500 calls about the case swamped the Stearns County Law Enforcement Center when the sketch of the van was released.

    [...]

    An 11-year-old boy of one of the families said he saw what he thought was the same van while fishing on a lake dock near his home about two weeks after the attempted abduction he said the van stopped in front of the dock and the driver leaned out of his window to take a picture of him.

    “I turned around and looked at him and he backed up, turned and got the heck out of there,” the boy said. He said the man had black hair and was holding eye glasses while he snapped the picture.

    WCCO Spoke With Wetterling Abduction ‘Person Of Interest’ In 1996
    November 9, 2015 10:41 PM By Esme Murphy

    [...]

    A review of our archives has turned up a 1996 undercover interview that WCCO-TV did with Danny Heinrich. That interview was conducted with a hidden camera in Heinrich’s red car.

    At one point, Heinrich describes how authorities at one point actually arrested him and accused him of abducting Jacob. In the interview, Heinrich described that confrontation this way.

    “We know it’s you. It’s you, it’s you. No it isn’t. No it isn’t. No it isn’t,” the dialogue goes.

    [...]

    WCCO-TV reported in 1996 that Heinrich had failed a lie detector test and transcripts of the interview quote him as saying he does not want to take another one.

    [...]

    During the interview and in transcripts, Heinrich says in 1989 and 1990 he was under surveillance for months.

    “It was pure hell,” Heinrich said.

    [...]
    If you have any information about Heinrich, you’re asked to call the FBI at (763) 569-8000 or the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office at (320) 259-3700.

    Is Wetterling Person Of Interest Connected To A 1989 Arson?
    November 12, 2015 10:45 PM By Jennifer Mayerle

    [...]

    The front page of the Paynesville Press on Nov. 14, 1989 shows a Ceremony of Hope for Jacob Wetterling. Students singing “Somewhere Out There,” hoping for the safe return of the 11-year-old.

    In the bottom right hand corner of that same paper is news about a suspected arson at a Paynesville home. What Wetterling investigators didn’t realize until months later, after the fire wreckage was taken away, is that the two cases could be connected.

    Documents recently released about the arrest of Danny Heinrich on child pornography charges show he was familiar with the home that burned. The documents also show the burned home had been burglarized five years earlier. And FBI agents found pictures thought to be relatives of the family who lived there when they searched the home where Heinrich lived in 1990.

    Paynesville victims recount painful attacks in the years before Wetterling disappeared
    By Pam Louwagie and Jenna Ross , Star Tribune
    November 14, 2015 - 9:28 PM

    PAYNESVILLE, Minn
    He was a 13-year-old biking home from the pizza place downtown, his only worry whether he’d make his 9 p.m. curfew.
    Troy Cole was just a block away from his front door that night in November 1986, when he was yanked off his bike.

    A man, his hand reeking of cigarette smoke, covered Cole’s mouth as he pulled him into some pine trees. Shut up or I’ll kill you, the man said, his voice rumbling from behind Cole’s head as he unzipped Cole’s jeans. He said he had a knife.

    “I thought I was going to die,” Cole said recently, recounting how the man used the knife to saw off a chunk of his sandy blond hair, a sick souvenir.

    The terror of that night has haunted Cole, now 42, for decades. Even worse, Cole said, is feeling that law enforcement didn’t take it seriously — not his case nor those of at least six other boys who were approached or accosted in this central Minnesota town.

    “I felt like they abandoned us, like ‘who cares, you know, they’re a bunch of kids, they’ll get over it,’ ” Cole said. “But to tell you the truth, we haven’t.”

    Couple Believe They Saw Wetterling Suspect On Night Of Disappearance
    November 17, 2015 10:09 PM By Esme Murphy

    [...]

    The Gwosts left the ballroom around 5:30 p.m. and stopped at the Tom Thumb gas station, which was about two blocks away. They were rushing to get to another gig. Kevin pumped gas, Marlene went in for sandwiches.
    She noticed a suspicious man inside immediately, and so did her husband.

    “I said to my husband, ‘I just have a real funny feeling about that guy why was he standing there not shopping just looking,'” Marlene said. “He wasn’t looking at anything in the aisles at all. All he was doing was looking over the top of the aisles that were there. And I just had a gut feeling that there was something going on.”

    Marlene worked at the time in the investigations unit of Stearns County Child Protection Services. The Gwosts reported the man to the sheriff’s office the day after the abduction, and Marlene was asked by investigators to help put together one of the early sketches of the suspect.


    (credit: CBS)

    [...]
    Both Gwosts say while the sketch they helped create and other sketches of suspicious individuals from that night show a bald man. The man they saw was wearing a baseball cap similar to the one in a later sketch.

    Danny Heinrich's brother comes to his defense
    Caroline Lowe 12:39 a.m. EST November 18, 2015

    [...]

    David Heinrich sat down for an interview with KARE 11 reporter Caroline Lowe in Paynesville, Minnesota.

    David Heinrich: "I cannot believe there is any connection."

    Caroline Lowe: "Your brother Is not the person who took Jacob?"

    David Heinrich: "No! I could never believe that. Never!"

    He said his brother is too timid and too afraid to attack anyone.

    David Heinrich: "He can't kill. He's scared. If you raised a fist at him, he'd run. He's not that way. He could not hurt somebody. He's scared of his shadow, he could not kill."

    Wetterlings react to Heinrich arrest
    David Unze, dunze@stcloudtimes.com
    10:35 a.m. CST December 10, 2015

    [...]

    And although Heinrich hasn’t been charged with anything related to Jacob’s disappearance, being named a person of interest has generated conversations and news reports about what investigators knew about Heinrich and when, and what they are learning now.

    "It’s scary. It’s a new place," Patty Wetterlng said Wednesday. "If it’s Heinrich, it’s bad. ... But we need to know ‘Where’s Jacob?' "

    Heinrich, 52, is in federal custody after being charged with five counts of possessing and receiving child pornography. A search warrant filed after his arrest shows that investigators searched Heinrich’s Annandale house this summer for evidence related to Jacob’s disappearance.

    [...]

    "We’d known of Danny Heinrich and Duane Hart," Patty said. "It seems to me they were always said in the same sentence."

    She doesn’t like to speak at length about possible suspects in her son’s abduction and admits she’d rather know where Jacob is than who abducted him.

    Behind the person of interest in the Jacob Wetterling investigation
    By Pam Louwagie and Jenna Ross Star Tribune
    January 1, 2016 — 11:26pm |

    Long before he was named in the Jacob Wetterling abduction, Danny James Heinrich, now 52, led a troubled early life of burglary, drinking and financial difficulties, records and interviews show.
    =========================================
    The break-ins puzzled the owner of the Twice’s Nice consignment shop in Paynesville, Minn. First, eight pairs of men’s pants were stolen. Then six. Then seven. The burglar left a mess of broken glass and strewn clothes for pants worth just a few dollars each.

    When, on the fourth break-in, police arrested Danny James Heinrich, store owner Cecelia Eliason couldn’t help but feel sorry for him: “I am most concerned for Danny’s future,” she wrote in a 1984 letter urging the court to ensure that Heinrich got job training. “I think that Danny will need a friend to help him become an honest, self-supporting and upstanding citizen.”

    Long before he was named in October as a “person of interest” in the Jacob Wetterling abduction, Heinrich, now 52, led a troubled early life of burglary, drinking and financial difficulties, records and interviews show. Decades ago, investigators considered him a suspect in not only 11-year-old Jacob’s 1989 abduction but also a series of masked attacks in Paynesville, where Heinrich grew up with few friends and several encounters with police.

    Authorities first searched his house for evidence of Jacob a quarter century ago, but only recently raised his name publicly after matching Heinrich’s DNA to what they long believed might be a connected crime — a Cold Spring boy’s 1989 kidnapping and assault.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Farmland in central Minnesota kept a killer’s secret for nearly 30 years, but late last week, authorities unearthed Jacob Wetterling’s remains, ending a mystery that long haunted the state.

    A kidnapper grabbed the 11-year-old as he biked home on an October night in 1989. The gunman confessed he drove Wetterling from St. Joseph to Paynesville where he molested the boy and murdered him. Now, for the first time tonight, the farmer of the fields where Jacob was found is speaking out.

    In court Wednesday, Danny Heinrich admitted he buried Jacob Wetterling 100 yards from a gravel pit in Paynesville only to return a year later to find the boy’s jacket exposed. Heinrich said that’s when he moved Jacob across the highway to a farm, burying him near a home but just out of sight....
