    Episode 5: Hope

    How can we begin to understand the loss the Klein family has experienced? It's impossible, but also an important step in how we can try to empathize with and support families in this unthinkable situation. Betty and Kenneth are no longer able to share their experience, so Jack El-Hai sat down with Patty Wetterling to discuss how her family navigated the tragedy of her son Jacob's abduction, and what's changed since they learned of his fate after 27 years of searching.

    Episode 3: The Suspects

    In a case that has been closed, with no crime scene and virtually no physical evidence, how do you even begin to imagine a list of potential suspects? Jessica Miller and Lance Salls go back to the beginning and scrutinize every interview and report to try to reconstruct the possible fates of the Klein brothers and find, incredibly, there are still avenues to pursue in this almost 70 year old case.

Saddened

This is the story of my Mom’s cousins/aunt and uncle. I have known this story for most of my life, 50 yrs now. Listening to this I have learned a lot I didn’t know. It’s very well done and I highly recommend it. It’s so sad though I could never imagine going through this as a parent. Betty and Bobby as I knew him, were amazing people and always happy. They came to a few of my birthday parties when I was younger and I will never forget the joy they brought to the family.

Must listen

Add this to your true crime list. The Podcast is well done and tells an amazing, heartbreaking story. I appreciated all the angles covered and especially liked the candid conversations from the family. I hope someday they have the answers they seek and deserve.
