Minnesota man describes killing 11-year old in chilling detail
A Minnesota man confessed on Tuesday to abducting and killing 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling nearly 27 years ago, recounting the crime in chilling detail, including a handcuffed Jacob asking him, “What did I do wrong?”
Danny Heinrich, 53, of Annandale, made the admission as he pleaded guilty to a federal child abuse images charge that will probably keep him locked up for 20 years, with civil commitment possible after that, meaning he could spend the rest of his life in custody.
Asked whether he abducted, sexually assaulted and murdered Jacob, Heinrich said: “Yes, I did.”

The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
