Creepy old man: Wetterling obsession or possible connection to murder? 
A search of the home of a dead Milwaukee man gave police some interesting connections to the case of the 1989 Jacob Wetterling abduction. Police dismiss these connections. Police found child bondage pornography, news clippings and photos of young Jacob, and books on cannibalism. They also found newly poured concrete in the basement, along with bondage devices hanging from the rafters. Tufts of hair also were found in the basement, and the investigator found piles of dirt outside.

He was 17 at the time of the alleged offenses.
