MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man who, at one point, found himself at the center of the Wetterling investigation is speaking out.
Jacob Wetterling was kidnapped at the end of Dan Rassier’s driveway.
Authorities questioned him over the years, dug up his property and publicly named him a person of interest in 2010.
Saturday, he expressed his sadness for the Wetterling family.
“I just feel for the Wetterling family and all the kids that knew Jacob. It’s a very sad miracle if it really has closure, if that’s possible,” Rassier said.
Rassier has not been cleared as a person of interest in the case.
He told WCCO that was especially tough on his father, who died last year days after Heinrich’s arrest.
Rassier said all his father wanted was to see his son’s name cleared.
