If this man didn't have anything to do with Jacob Wetterling's abduction, I really feel sorry for him, because it surely seems that everyone believes he did.
This was interesting -- I had not seen that the "person of interest" sat for any previous interviews. It also made me a little sick to my stomach that Patty Wetterling requested and got a private interview with him and flat-out asked him if he took Jacob, even couching it to ask if he was playing a prank that got out of hand.
I wonder if anything relating to Jacob's abduction will ever be learned in my lifetime. I asked John Walsh about this specifically a few years ago -- he said that they would have to find bones, because there was unlikely to be a deathbed confession in this case.
