It was just another day for 24-year-old Michael Landers when the doorbell rang at his Minnesota home. But the visitors were the police, and they had some totally unexpected news to share with him. In fact, it was news that would change his life forever.
By all accounts, Landers seemed to have a happy and normal life. He had been brought up in Browerville, Minnesota, by Raymond and Susan Iddings, and at the time law enforcement arrived at his door he had a wife, Bobbie, and a baby on the way.
During that period Landers, his wife and his parents lived together in Long Prairie, a small city located around 100 miles to the northwest of Minnesota’s largest city, Minneapolis. Raymond Iddings, in particular, was well known in the local community.
