Video surveillance from Yellowstone National Park helped in the capture of the man responsible for last week’s kidnapping and assault of an 11-year-old Cody girl.  The Montana man’s car was spotted as he drove through Yellowstone, and now 39-year-old Jessie Paul Speers is being being held without bond in Bozeman and has waived extradition.

Cody Police Chief Perry Rockvam says it was a total team effort from the start.  He says it started with collecting and reviewing all the video surveillance available, going door-to-door, conducting interviews, and developing all possible leads.  Then, a video from Yellowstone National Park showed Speers driving through the park the day before the incident provided a photo of the license plate leading to Speer’s apprehension in Belgrade, Montana.  As yet, Speers has not entered a plea.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
