    I was simply re-reading the old threads and came upon SelTel's post with that picture and that sketch and remembered the newspaper article with that sketch and how the picture seemed a good match...then wondered if anything ever came of it as there was no info on the guy in the original post. It certainly wasn't my intention to stir things up and if I did, I apologize. Naively, I was hoping maybe someone here on WS might have come across that picture elsewhere with some info on who it was as I couldn't relate it to any of the suspects discussed here to date.

    Utilizing the facial recognition beta software known as NameTag for Google Glass (http://www.nametag.ws/), we are able to identify the individual via facebook.com.

    His name is Richard Alvin Kolling. He lives in Akron, Ohio.

    Richard Kolling on MySpace: https://myspace.com/whigoose51

    Ohio Attorney General sex offender registration: http://www.icrimewatch.net/offenderdetails.php?OfndrID=1572330&AgencyID=55149

    Ohio sex offender registration: http://www.homefacts.com/offender-detail/OH1572330/Richard-Alvin-Kolling.html

    Florida sexual offender registration: http://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/flyer.do?personId=33576

    Various historical booking photos of Richard Alvin Kolling: http://mugshots.com/search.html?q=Richard Alvin Kolling

    Akron, OH, news archives indicate that Kolling and his former wife were arrested in June 1977 for criminal sexual conduct involving one or more children. Kolling, who was found mentally incompetent, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of sexual battery. He was sentenced in September 1977 to 18 months to 10 years in prison. Kolling was released from the State Reformatory at Mansfield, OH, in November 1979.

    In 1990, Kolling’s ex-wife and her husband were arrested in East Akron for coercing a 14-year-old boy and two girls, ages 15 and 16, into sexual acts by threatening them with physical harm. Charges included felonious assault for allegedly threatening the boy with a gun.

    It is noted that individuals with the surname Kolling reside in Stearns county, MN. It is further noted that a stream known as Kolling Creek is located in Stearns county, MN, southwest of Richmond, MN, near state Highway 23 (Latitude: 45.4441306; Longitude: -94.5524996).

    We leave it to others to ascertain whether it is feasible that Richard Alvin Kolling could have been physically present in Stearns County, MN, at the time of the 1989 Cold Spring, MN, and/or St. Joseph, MN, abductions.

    Here is a clearer picture of Richard Kolling. He is a tall man, at 6' 3". At that height he would not be a likely perp in the Paynesville or Cold Spring cases, even if connected to the area.

    But pensfan, Richmond, MN is right near Cold Spring and Paynesville on Highway 23! It could all be related. :rolleyes: Or not.

    I think we've found that Stearns County, and St. Joe in particular, had more than enough sex molesters without having to drag some guy from Ohio into it.

    As far as molesters, we should check all names that are Johnson or Anderson. I have a feeling there are a few molesters there.

    Good idea to look at random info and put it together. Who knows with all of permutations and combinations that we may not come up with the right one. Pensfan has us going in the right direction!

    I strongly agree.
    Jacob was not abducted by someone with cognitive issues. Jacob's abductor is a conniving *** who was able to conceal evidence from this crime from many FBI agents and most importantly, his mommy and daddy.

    Does Jared know that Joy screens/deletes comments from her blog? If not, someone should tell him. He should start his own blog, so he could get all the information without someone screening/deleting the comments which don't agree with Joy's point of view.

    Was Jared ever given a photo line up with Dan Rassier's picture in it?

    I was searching through the Oct. 1989 issues of the St. Ben's/St. John's newsletters "The Record" which Marlins found a link to back in post #83, page 4 of this thread
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=223701&page=4

    to see if they had anything in there about Jacob's abduction. The Oct. 24th issue had this review and article about the locally filmed movie "Catch Me If You Can" which we've discussed before on here.

    http://cdm.csbsju.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/CSBArchNews/id/2625/rec/12
    (click on page 9 along right side)

    It was filmed in St. Cloud with scenes at Cathedral and Apollo High Schools, The Red Carpet (bar downtown), and a road out by St. John's prep. (Along with many other roads such as Stone Hill Road around St. Cloud.) Many people from the local area were extras in the film. I just thought it was interesting because we've discussed how the guy who attempted an abduction in St. Joe before Jacob was taken (the guy with the bangs and glasses and tan van) had a Catch Me If You Can bumper sticker on his vehicle.

    This same Oct. 24th issue has a rather sickening (in light of what we know now) article about Matthew Feeney, and how he just loves working with all the youth of St. Joe, how they stop by his house all the time for his free candy and spend "movie night" with him. How he runs retreats for kids, and how he is such a gift to children. Ugh.

    http://cdm.csbsju.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/CSBArchNews/id/2625/rec/12
    (click on page 7 on right hand side - article is at top of page 7 with picture.)

    The next issue on Oct. 26th had articles about Jacob's abduction.
    http://cdm.csbsju.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/CSBArchNews/id/2612/rec/8
    Page 1 has an article talking about how a student from SJU was awakened in his apartment on 10th Ave. SE by helicopters overhead. (So they were loud enough to wake sleeping people). It also states the search went all night. The article is continued on page 4. On page 3 there is an article about how students from St. Ben's spent the night outside on the night Jacob was abducted in blankets and inside cardboard boxes to show the plight of the homeless. (This photo was also featured in the Times the Monday after Jacob's abduction.) Jacob's missing poster is on page 5.

    Also interesting (to me, anway) on the front page is a photo of the Church at St. John's and it says the giant cross was replaced on the church on Tuesday, Oct. 24th, 1989. If you blow that photo up to full size it shows how large it is in relation to the workers sitting up there. I know it's probably silly, but in a mystery book, this would be an ideal place to hide a body.

    The 9/11/89 issue of the Record also had a couple small opinion pieces on Jacob on page 10.

    All issues from 1989 can be found here:

    I've tried numerous times to post comments under her blog and none have ever been published. This is why I strongly feel that if Jared is interested in finding the TRUTH, he should start his own blog. To find the truth, everyone must be able to contribute.

    In articles about famous sadistic child killers, there are several interesting similarities with Jacob's case. Most of these sickos kept scrapbooks with articles about the children they killed. I won't post what the famous sadistic killers did with their scrapbooks of victims because it's sexual in nature. Why did Dan write 14 letters begging LE and other LE agencies to return the few items they took from his searched home in 2010? I think Dan was really fond of one object that LE confiscated and that was his scrapbook about Jacob's disappearance. I hope LE never returns Dan's scrapbook with all those articles about Jacob. I also hope that newspaper employees call LE if Dan is requesting to make copies of old articles about Jacob.

    One of the famous sadist child killers burned his victim in his burn pit to hide the body. Why did Dan announce that LE was going to find animal bones in his burn pit? Bizarre!

    What ever happened to that CONVICTED CHILD MOLESTER that was FB friends with Dan Rasser and knew him all the way back to his college years in band?

    ELOCsoul, do you have any more info on your statement that the man arrested in Jared's case was from Cold Spring? That would definitely rule out DAH. It was stated in Garber's book that this man was arrested, although they did release him. Do you have other news articles that show he was from Cold Spring? That would be huge info in Jared's case anyway, if not in Jacob's case.

    Yes, article from St. Cloud Times attached. In the article, WCCO reporter Daryl Savage talks about going to Cold Spring to follow LE surveilling a known sex offender there. Al Garber confirmed that the man arrested in Jared's case was from Cold Spring.

    I think general consensus before now, was that Duane Allen Hart was the man arrested in Jared's case. Looking back, it appears that association was made simply based on the timing of DAH's arrest and the fact he did lineups for Jared. The reasons why DAH is not a logical suspect in Jared's case are pretty well established IMO.

    What I think is interesting and should be revisited is the Cold Spring man that was arrested. From the very beginning of Jacob's investigation, LE established they felt Jared's and Jacob's cases were connected. Could they have arrested this Cold Spring man and "liked" him for Jared's abduction but ruled him out in Jacob's abduction? Then, thinking the two cases were connected perhaps they dropped the Cold Spring man from serious consideration in Jared's case as well? Remember, the man that was arrested had owned a newer car that matched the description of the car used in Jared's abduction, and had rid himself of that car in the meantime. LE found the car, and in the back seat found fibers similar to those from Jared's coat. The man knew the area around Cold Spring and Richmond.

    Other hints from Garber's book: When they interviewed the man they set up a flag in the interview room, arranged the furniture in a certain way, and added special lights. They must have had some reason to do all of that?

    Setting up a flag seems to indicate they thought it was a military man, doesn't it? I'm not sure why else you'd set up a flag.

    Hearing that Garber has confirmed it was a man from Cold Spring that was arrested seals it for me. I wonder if some of the older Cold Spring residents would have an idea who this was? if they didn't have enough evidence to hold him back then, it might be even tougher coming up with some now. Although, sometimes with the passage of time, people let things slip that no longer seem important. Maybe this man from Cold Spring just knew the man who actually did it and that's why they couldn't find the evidence.

    I checked the RSO's in Cold Spring map,
    http://www.homefacts.com/offenders/Minnesota/Stearns-County/Cold-Spring.html

    and this is the only guy they have registered right now. He is considered a Cold Spring, MN RSO, even though he currently lives in St. Cloud.

    http://www.homefacts.com/offender-detail/MN161503/Randy-Duane-Strunk.html

    He was born in 1958, so he would have been 31 in 1989.

    His record on the MN Court site shows he started with robbery and moved on to 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree sexual conduct. His first sexual conduct offense was filed on 9/18/1990. He has been arrested several times for Crim. Sexual Conduct.

    http://coms.doc.state.mn.us/level3/SearchResults.asp?SearchType=NonCompliant

    This link has currently wanted fugitives. Shows their photos, and when you click on name - it gives details of crime. (This list includes drug busts, assaults, and other offenses in addition to sexual molestation.)
    http://coms.doc.state.mn.us/publicviewer/FugitiveAll.asp

    IMO, anyone other than older white males on this list could be ruled out, and that doesn't leave very many to explore.

    Here are some questions for Dan Rassier. If he can't answer them, maybe his enabler will answer for him.

    What made you unable to talk with Patty for TWENTY years? She was essentially your neighbor. You saw her multiple times/week on tv or driving on the road near his home. She was frightening and she was readily available. Were you unconcerned about Jacob's family?

    You said that you took a lie detector test, but were never told the results. What has made you unable to ask about your polygraph results for TWENTY-SIX years?

    You told Patty where you thought a body could be hidden on your property. You told her that the person in the area who abducted/killed Jacob could have taken Jacob’s body and hidden it in your gravel pit, What made you tell her that? What gratification did you get from telling her that information?

    As much as I have read about this case and as much speculation that there has been regarding it, I have always come back to DR as either being the actual abductor OR knowing a heck of a lot more about Jacob's disappearance than he has ever claimed.

    Dan Rassier let the police officers search his car the next morning after Jacob was abducted when he was at school. His home however, didn't get searched for five days. Ask yourself why his home wasn't immediately searched, but his car was searched. Here's the only logical answer: Dan was surprised at the officers appearing at his place of employment and he allowed them to search his car. When they requested to search his home, he told them no and to get a search warrant otherwise, his home would have been immediately searched

    DAN HOROWITZ, DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Right. And you know, I called the Rassier Home today, and I spoke to his mother. He wasn`t taking calls. And she seems just dumbfounded as to what is going on, but he on the other hand, Daniel, seems very, very odd. You know, when he was asked about those news articles in a press interview, why do you have all those articles about this young boy missing?

His answer wasn`t, well, I`m concerned, he was a neighbor. His answer was, well, I'm a pack rat. And he`s given a lot of odd answers. He could be a very strange man, but it does -- it`s highly suspicious.
    http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1102/28/ng.01.html

    This sickens me. We’ve seen photos of Dan in his organized home. He's not a hoarder.
