New Five-Part Series Airing on KPR2

Tune in to KPR2 from 7-8 p.m., February 6-10, to listen to "In the Dark," the most comprehensive reporting on a case that inspired the national sex offender’s registry as well as the concept of “stranger danger.”

Kidnapping cases are often complicated and tedious, but the case of Jacob Wetterling seemed like it should have been open and shut. Jacob was kidnapped in front of two of his friends one night in 1989 as they biked home on a dead-end street in St. Joseph, Minnesota. As law enforcement scrambled to find the boy and return him home, the town was ripped apart and the case seemed to go colder and colder.

In 2016, Jacob’s kidnapper and murderer came forward. In the Dark looks into this 27-year-old case and how it was handled by law enforcement of the area, as well as the effects of the tragedy on the town of St. Joseph and throughout the United States. Tune in to KPR2 from 7-8 p.m., February 6-10, to listen to the most comprehensive reporting on this case, which inspired the national sex offender’s registry as well as the concept of “stranger danger.”  

This broadcast might be disturbing for some listeners, especially children. Listen with caution.
