in with kattey if anything else breaks. jack: detectives in des moines may be taking a new look at the case of a metro boy missing for decades. this renewed hope comes after a break in the abduction case of a boy from minnesota just last week. daniel heinrich is now a person of interest in the disappearance of jacob wetterling in minnesota in 1989. heinrich appeared in federal court yesterday and a judge ruled he should be kept in jail, calling him a "danger to the community." right now, he only faces child pornography charges, not anything related to jacob wetterling's case. still-- details about evidence found in heinrich's home caught the attention of a retired des moines police detective. jack: he worked on the case of missing paper boy eugene martin, who was abducted in 1984, and never found.
local five's amanda krenz takes a look back at the case that gripped the life of a police officer and all of iowa. it's tonight's big story. ((nats of garage opening, revealing eugene's face.)) as this garage door opens... it reveals a young man with big brown eyes staring back at you. this is eugene miller. 19:13 everyday when i drive in, walk in, i look at him, think about him. where's he at? what happened to him? eugene is missing. he disappeared on august 12th, 1984...a date permanently etched in jim rowley's memory. 9:54 my boy was august 12, 84 - on my son's birthday. amanda - intersting that you call him my boy. jim "well he is. i can't find him so he is. jim rowley wants to be reminded of his missing boy everyday, that's why this 30-year-old poster is hanging in his garage. jim used to be senior police officer rowley, the main investigator in eugene martin's disappearance. (standup) gene was 13-years old when he vanished from this corner of sw14th and highview in des moines. it was about 5:30 in the morning...
he had some of his papers rolled up and ready to be delivered. 2:19 "sw 14th and highview, got a missing paperboy, don't let it be a west des moines case." about 2 years before that call came in about eugene martin, 13 year old johnny gosch went missing while he was delivering papers in west des moines. 3:46 we worked 3-4 days around the clock, neighborhood canvas, interviewed everybody in the house, petsdogs, children, cars, we found some interesting people but nothing that ever sent the balloon up. the dci, fbi, and west des moines p.d. came to help with the case. eugenes father, donnie martin, tried to coordinate search efforts with neighbors and volunteers. (((nats of donnie talking to group about some new information that just came in))) the only solid clues left behind that day were eugene's bag full of papers, left on the corner, and a few people who saw eugene that morning talking to somebody. 3:00 we found 3 people going to the balloon fest that had drove by and eugene talking to a man, it looked like a father son conversation between them. the search team combed through corn fields, officers even flew to cancun to follow a lead. as time went on it became clear, eugene martin's case was sadly similar to johnny gosch. years slipped by with no sign of the missing kid. eugene's father, talked to reporters on the anniversaries of his son's disappearance. 4 year anniversary
story - "don 1:37 i'll never give up hope, as long as there's no body or evidence pointing in that direction. i'll never give up hope." don martin passed away in 2010, never owing what happened to eugene. although in his obituary it says he was preceded in death by his son. don martin was good friends with the officer jim rowley, the two met every week for years on friday evenings to talk about new leads. 10:28 no matter what lead he had i would go out and work it. and we never had a concrete lead. the eugene martin file, remains opens open today... full of paperwork from more than 30 years of following leads and collecting any fraction of evidence. the case haunts jim rowley. 11:21 you can leave a homicide at work, i know that sounds bizarre, you can leave a shooting or stabbing or robbery at work, but there's a boy missing and all he was doing was delivering papers. rowly has a theory that both eugene martin and johnny gosch were the victims of a pedaphile. he believes they're both dead. but he hasn't given up on finding out what happened... to his boy. 15:19 i hope nobody ever gives up on 'em. jack:
the minnesota case. he also hopes, before the end of his life, to have answers about what happened to eugene martin. if you want to see more local 5 archival footage from when this case first came about....... we have those stories on our website -- we are iowa dot com. stephanie: new at 10, senator joni ernst backs the governor's decision to privatize medicaid in iowa. stephanie: this move would affect 560 thousand iowans, but still needs federal approval. and a hearing into wether or not a state employee used confidential information to help one of the companies sink a bid is standing in
the way too. during senator ernt's weekly press conference today she said there are two things this move has to accomplish--to benefit the state and those who use it. "if we are able to save those dollars, utlize those dollars, and making sure that those paitients or those customers are really taken care of and recieving quality healthcare, than i think that's the direction we should move as a state. " stephanie: and the governor says that's what this move will accomplish. he says the state will save 51- million dollars once the deal goes through...plus it will provide a better healthcare system for those who currently use it. "without coordinated care, we have one provider basically subscribing this medicatin, another, this and they often times are in conflict with eachother and the person ends up in the hopital or emergency room.

and lays it in. third quarter we go-- cyclones going inside to freshman meredith burkhall-- the former roosevelt roughrider kisses it off the glass for a pair isu up 10. they'd roll from there 79 to 36 the final from hilton coliseum jon: growing up in canada the sport of choice for most kids is hockey. for iowa wild goaltender leland irving that holds true. the netminder has dealt with some ups and downs-- not just in hockey-- but in life as well. leland irving's road to the iowa wild has been anything but normal-- he's gone from the calgary flames-- to the khl in russia-- now to des moines. "it's been a battle like definitely not the easiest road to further my career." but at the age of 7 irving had to face a battle bigger than any his career would present. " we thought it was just like a black fly bite it swelled up pretty bad and was actually kind of pushing my ear so we got it checked out at the local hospital and they didn't find anything at first but then once i went into the specialist in edmonton that's when the results came back that it was cancer." "irving was diagnosed with rhabdomysarcoma, a cancer that forms in soft tissue" "it was a tumor on the
outside of my skull. they removed it and then i went through 13 months of chemo therapy." "being 8 years old i didn't realize the impact that cancer could have on my life." "i knew i would lose my hair which i wasn't too worried about." , leland faced more than a year of chemo head on, turning to hockey as a welcome distraction... "it was probably the thing that might have saved me throughout the treatments. i played hockey almost every day whether it was in the basement with my brother or road hockey with friends still competed played regular minor hockey. i only missed one game and one practice because my blood count was too low and we couldn't risk any sort of internal bleeding but it just takes your mind away from everything that's going on and really just allowed me to be a normal 8 year old." irving completed his treatment, with the cancer in remission.. "we were fortunate to catch it early and didn't have to go through any radiation or anything other than that." "18 years cancer free" the battle with cancer and his love of hockey shaped irving into the goaltender you see between the pipes-- and the man he is away from the ice. "it's tough you lose a lot of people in this world to cancer unfortunately it's a disease that's just
part of our world and we have to deal with it. but i think a key is to stay positive that's one thing i'm fairly good at just try to bring a smile to the rink everyday and work hard and no matter what the situation is try to take the positives out of it." jon: irving says he has a soft spot for kids with irving says he has a soft spot
