Jacob Wetterling Memorial Service set for September 25
The memorial service for Jacob Wetterling will be held Sunday, Sept. 25, at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph.
The college announced the date on Friday on behalf of the Wetterling family. The service will begin at 10 a.m. on Sept. 25th. Other details will be announced later.
Jacob was 11 when he was abducted near his home in the central Minnesota community of St. Joseph on Oct. 22, 1989. His disappearance haunted Minnesota for nearly 27 years. On Tuesday, 53-year-old Danny Heinrich, of Annandale, confessed in federal court that he abducted, sexually assaulted and killed Jacob.
Heinrich last week led authorities to the field in Paynesville where Jacob’s remains were recovered.
