Patty Wetterling Releases Statement
The mother of a Minnesota boy who went missing in 1989 and whose remains were recently found buried in a pasture says her family is grieving.
In a statement Monday, Patty Wetterling says they “are deeply grieving and are pulling our family together,” and that they are not ready to speak to members of the media.
A masked gunman abducted Jacob Wetterling in October 1989 near his St. Joseph home, about 80 miles northwest of Minneapolis. The case has haunted Minnesota ever since.
Patty Wetterling since became a nationally recognized advocate for missing children.
Jacob’s remains were recently found buried near Paynesville. The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office says they were positively identified Saturday. A person of interest has been held on child pornography charges since October.
