American boy who was kidnapped from his hometown and murdered at the age of 11 on 22 October 1989. His abduction remained a mystery for nearly 27 years.
On 1 September 2016, the FBI recovered human remains from a pasture near Paynesville, Minnesota, about 30 miles (48 km) from the site of the abduction. On 3 September the family announced the remains were those of Jacob, and local law enforcement stated that confirmation of their identity had been obtained through dental records.
The location was revealed by Danny Heinrich (dob: 21 March 1963), a long-time person of interest in the abduction of another boy, Jared Scheierl, in the nearby town of Cold Spring.
On 6 September 2016, Heinrich confessed to kidnapping and murdering Jacob Wetterling, as well as the abduction and assault of Jared Scheierl.
