    MN - Jacob Wetterling, 11, St. Joseph, 22 Oct 1989 - #10



    11-year-old Jacob Wetterling was riding bicycles with his brother and a friend in St. Joseph, Minnesota on October 22, 1989 when they were approached by an unknown man with a gun. The man let the other boys go, but grabbed Jacob and walked away with him. Jacob has never been heard from again.

    "It's very clear there was no vehicle," said (Patty) Wetterling, who was away from home with her husband at the time of the abduction. "He said he didn't see a vehicle. He didn't hear a vehicle. He didn't hear a car door slam."

    Helpful, thanks. I will see if I can pull from ProQuest
    Odd it is so rare to find a good, available source for it though, right?

    Backing up the discussion to the letter to the sheriff...

    The FBI was also involved in the 2010 search, and I suspect they are still involved in the case. Let's not put all the blame on the current local LE. When has the FBI ever shared anything with the public? We don't know that the FBI has pulled a veil of silence on the local LE. Even the media cannot get answers.

    I also believe that if LE publicly answered questions incorrectly, they could be in for legal problems.

    No sound of car, no visual of car and no car passed boys. All tire tracks accounted for by LE. If I recall correctly, I thought tracker stated way back that if a car started up, there would be an indication in the dirt of the exhaust blowing it back. Someone please confirm. Also, when we get back into our cars, we grab the wheel...can you honestly say that there was NO interruption in tire tracks ? Moving the wheel prior to driving away would leave an indication in the tracks.

    Another Abduction Scare in St. Joseph in 1993?

    A possible abduction scare struck St. Joseph again on June 30, 1993. The parents of an 8-year-old girl believe that her quick thinking averted her abduction by a suspicious man in the city of St. Joseph. The girl's mother had left the home to run a quick errand during the afternoon. She left the 8 year old home with two younger siblings. The phone rang soon after the mother left the house. The girl answered the phone, and a husky voiced man asked her if her mother was home. The girl replied that her mother was not home. The man then told the girl that he was a friend of her mother's, and that he was going to come over to her house to pick her up. The girl hung up the phone, woke up her napping sibling, and hurried over to the next-door neighbor's house.

    A 12-year-old boy from the neighbor's house stood guard and watched the neighborhood after the 8-year-old girl told him what happened. Within minutes, a man pulled up in red car, and walked up to the girl's house. He knocked on the door and left after no one answered. He described the man as having dark, bushy hair and a large belly. He was wearing a red colored baseball jacket and green sweat pants. His car was a large, older, boxy car with rust on the bottom and a loud muffler.

    The girl's father arrived at home a few minutes after the incident. After hearing his daughter and neighbor recount what happened, he checked with other neighbors who confirmed the information about the man and the red car. Further inquiry by the father revealed that at least three other neighborhood children reported seeing a similar red car in the neighborhood in recent weeks. The witnesses told the father that the man would typically be sitting in his car, watching children playing. He called 911 and a Stearns County Sheriff's deputy responded to the scene immediately. The matter was investigated promptly in light of the abduction of 8 year old Jeanna North from Fargo, North Dakota just two days earlier. The investigation into the incident could not determine that a crime had been committed.

    Paraphrased from St. Joseph Newsleader article from August 6, 1993.

    Jacobs abductor back in town? Interesting though that he no longer needs to disguise himself from head to toe and is now acting in broad daylight.

    LE is a dead end for new answers in this active case, lets get at Joy Baker and find out the rest of that story that DR and her have been withholding from us.

    "Dan has a pretty good idea of why his farm was searched in 2010, and we talked about it at length. We may share that story one day, but not yet. There are many more details to be worked out first."

    If only we could get accurate information from Joy. That is the problem.

    And she has taken things from WS sleuthers and made it sound like she was the one who figured all of this out.

    I simply cannot trust information from someone who operates like that

    …..and notifying his victims that he's on his way to get them. He also must have evolved and become omniscient. He knows the phone number of potential victims.

    IMO, a study on mass hysteria would, sadly, be appropriate for this small community.

    In other words, Dan (the FBI’s only person of interest who had his property search MULTIPLE times and cadaver dogs identified items which are still kept as evidence) has created another “addendum” to his story, but it's TOP SECRET or he's not finished creating the details.
