SLAYTON, Minn. - In the Wetterling living room on the night of Oct. 22, 1989, 11-year-old Aaron Larson kept waiting for Jacob Wetterling to come home.


He watched through the picture window every time a squad car pulled up and an officer got out.

"I just remember looking out that window and thinking, 'OK, he's going to get out and this is going to be over,' " Aaron said recently in his southern Minnesota living room.
