In The Dark: Episode 3 of 5 ~ "The One Who Got Away"
In the Dark examines how law enforcement handled the kidnapping of Jacob Wetterling – a case that went unsolved for nearly 27 years, but had sweeping national consequences. From the creation of the federal sex offender registry, to the devastating effects of publicly labeling a man a "person of interest," this 5-part series offers insights into how crimes are – or are not - solved in their communities.
Episode #3, "The One Who Got Away" presents the story of Jared Scheierl, who was abducted by the same man who killed Jacob just a few months before Jacob disappeared. It tells how Jared learned that other boys in the town of Paynesville had been grabbed and molested by a man who sounded similar, and how he and those boys came together as adults to try to track that man down. Afterward, Madeleine, Samara and Lizzie discuss Jared's doubts about some details of Danny Heinrich's confession, and explore whether Heinrich continued to attack children in the years he was free.
