In the Dark examines how law enforcement handled the kidnapping of Jacob Wetterling, an 11-year-old Minnesota boy – a case that went unsolved for nearly 27 years. Unlike other true crime programs, In the Dark goes beyond the horror of the story to reveal the sweeping consequences of the case: the creation of the federal sex offender registry; a community damaged by law enforcement mistakes; the devastating effects of publicly labeling a man a “person of interest.” Moreover, the reporting introduces data that will enlighten communities nationwide about their local crime solving.
