Wetterlings Hope to Keep News Media Out of Privacy Fight

The parents of Jacob Wetterling, a Minnesota boy who was kidnapped and killed in 1989 in a case that remained unsolved until last year, are asking a judge to keep the media out of a privacy fight over the investigative file.

An attorney for Patty and Jerry Wetterling filed the motion in Stearns County District Court late Thursday in response to a legal challenge by several news organizations, including KSTP, and open government groups that want full access to the voluminous case file.
