24. JACOB WETTERLING

“Everyone in Minnesota knows about Jacob Wetterling. Eleven-year-old kid out riding bicycle with his brother and his friend, and this guy comes out with a gun and stops them and makes them all lie down on the ground. He sends Jacob’s brother off running, telling him he’ll shoot him if he looks back, and then gets a look at Jacob and his friend before choosing Jacob and sending his friend running the way he’d sent the brother. They finally found him last year and caught the guy who was responsible after almost 30 years of nobody knowing what had happened.
