Since 2010, New London blogger Joy Baker has been asking questions about the October 1989 disappearance of St. Joseph boy, Jacob Wetterling.
With her blog, “Joy the Curious,” she has garnered statewide attention from major news outlets and even worked directly with Jacob’s parents, Patty and Jerry Wetterling.
“It’s a case that shook our state to the core,” Baker writes on her blog. “And like so many others, I crave answers and resolution for the Wetterling family.”
Baker is set to speak next week at the MinnWest Technology Campus Life Science Auditorium.
Willmar women’s mentoring and leadership group WeLEAD will host “#Thinking Jacob- My Search for Jacob Wetterling,” at noon March 30.
“Curiosity has changed not only Joy’s life but the investigation into Jacob’s disappearance,” the WeLEAD website says.
Tickets are $15 on the WeLEAD website and include a lunch, 15 minutes before the event. Friday is the registration deadline.
