MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota judge has ordered the release of state files on the 27-year investigation into the kidnapping and murder of Jacob Wetterling. Stearns County officials had planned to release the case file after Danny Heinrich confessed to the 1989 abduction and killing of 11-year-old Jacob. Jacob's parents, Patty and Jerry Wetterling, sued to keep 168 pages containing personal information sealed. The judge says any files connected to a criminal investigation become public once the case is concluded.
