Wetterling investigation continues



The Stearns County Sheriff's Office has received preliminary results from the BCA Forensic Crime Lab in reference to recent submissions pertaining to the Jacob Wetterling case. The various testings conducted were unable to establish, distinguish or identify potential evidence.

This does not exclude the possibility of further testing at a later date as ongoing research provides opportunities that are unavailable today. Because of the fact this is an ongoing investigation, and additional analysis is scheduled for specific items, details as to the types of testing and items tested will remain confidential.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office, MN BCA and the FBI remain steadfast in their united commitment to see justice served and this case solved.
