    I started wondering around on google this afternoon and found an interesting blog by someone in the area who has talked to both dan and Kevin. If you google joy the curious you should be able to find it.

    This is very intriguing. What law enforcement did not do. Not what they did, but what they did not do.

    Quote from article.

    Once I was done with [the Archdiocese story], I took a look at this, and decided it was worth looking into. The more I found out, it was clear this was worth spending a significant amount of time on. It's important to hold law enforcement accountable when they can't solve a case. It's important to understand why a case hasn't been solved, whether there were things that could've been done differently.

    As an investigative reporter, my interest is in looking at decisions made by people in powerful institutions and examing them... and holding them accountable for what they did do -- and certainly, they did do a lot in this case -- but also, what they didn't do.

    Once again, this is of very great concern to me. The SITUATION, These people on the registries commit sex crimes and impact theur victims forever, As we see with the StJoe area, there were tons of viable suspects. As we see with the reports about the priests, the victims suffered and they are still suffering as adults.

    Quote from article:
    Baran: The Wetterling case led directly to a federal law. It's actually even named after Jacob, the Jacob Wetterling Act. That law was passed in 1994, as part of the federal crime bill. It requires all states to mantain a registry of sex offenders. So, that moment in time can be traced back to this case in Minnesota. That decision, when you look at where we're at with that in this country -- there are hundreds of thousands of people on registries. Not just from the Jacob Wetterling Act, but the momentum to do something about sex offenders continued to build. And we ended up with the situation we have now, with hundreds of thousands of people on registries.

    While the tone of the first portion of this podcast series has the Wetterling family and other individuals involved in the search for Jacob concerned, we are all still hopeful it sheds light on Jacob’s open and active case and the prevention work being done in his name. We continue to remain thankful for all of the law enforcement officers who have put their hearts into this case for almost 27 years. We are also thankful for the Wetterling family who show us by example all that can be accomplished when we work together on behalf of children. And finally, we want to thank everyone who continues to ask the question: “Where is Jacob?”

    I've subscribed to the podcast. After reading through joys blog yesterday, though, I'm convinced the dirtbag child pornographer did it.

    Why would anyone be concerned about finding the truth and answers? There is a reason the case has been open and active for so long...

    "we are all still hopeful it sheds light on Jacob’s open and active case and the prevention work being done in his name" JWRC

    I don't think fussing is the right word, "questioning" may be more applicable. These questions are LONG overdue, IMO. It's about time someone in the media put some real time and effort into this case.
