The Jacob Wetterling Abduction - St. Joseph, MN
Jacob Wetterling was an 11-year-old boy who was kidnapped on Sunday, October 11th, 1989 near his home in St. Joseph, Minnesota (which is a suburb of St. Cloud). Today marks the 25th anniversary of what has been known as one of the most infamous child abductions of all time. The case has not been solved and Jacob has not been found. This posting is to promote awareness so Jacob can perhaps someday return home. His family has never given up hope.
All of my photos below were taken in September of 2014.
The St. Joseph Veterinary Clinic, formerly known as the Tom Thumb Convenience Store, was the location Jacob was headed to rent a movie before the abduction.
This is the spot above where Jacob was abducted between his home and the store.
The image above is a shot down the street where Jacob lived. To respect their privacy, I didn't want to go directly to the Wetterling home and start snapping photos.
