(WDAY TV) -- A person of interest in the 1989 abduction of Jacob Wetterling claims his civil rights have been violated.

In a letter sent to 14 state officials and agencies, Dan Rassier says law officers "abused the privileges of their power" in the case. 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling was abducted by a masked man at the end of Rassier's driveway outside St. Joseph, Minnesota.

No arrests have been made. Rassier's name was made public in 2010, after authorities searched his family farm but found no evidence linking them to the crime.
