Former FBI special agent Jeff Rinek spent his 30-year career investigating cases of missing, exploited and murdered children. He's known for extracting a confession from Cary Stayner, who killed four women and children near Yosemite Park in 1999, and for his work on the 1991 abduction of Jaycee Dugard in South Lake Tahoe. Rinek joins Forum to talk about his memoir, 'In the Name of the Children,' and what can be done to prevent crimes against young people.
