The Jacob Wetterling Abduction

In 1989, there were about 20,000 murders, but only 12,000 were solved. That’s only a 60% success rate, and that number hasn’t changed much in the last thirty years. You would think that with technology like DNA analysis and surveillance in more places, we’d be doing better. And of those unsolved crimes, few are solved years later. One of those 8000 unsolved cases in 1989 was the disappearance of Jacob Wetterling. Unlike so many others, this cold case did get a resolution, but it wasn’t until 27 years later. As a warning, this case references sexual abuse of children.
