Video Leads To The Arrest Of Kidnapping Suspect

Oct 15, 2012

Wyoming authorities say a 39-year-old Montana man has been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of an 11-year-old girl in Wyoming.
Court records filed in Cody identify the suspect as Jesse Paul Speer. He was arrested Saturday in Belgrade, Mont., on a hold for Wyoming. He faces extradition to Wyoming on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and felony use of a weapon.
 Speer's bond is set at $2 million and he faces a court appearance in Bozeman on Monday afternoon.
Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam says video taken at Yellowstone National Park provided a license plate number that led to the arrest. The Cody girl has been returned to her family.
