LAS VEGAS -- Suicidal, crazy, and confused are the emotions Clemens Tinnemeyer said he was experiencing when his 6-year-old grandson was kidnapped.
Tinnemeyer was back on the stand Friday at the trial of the boy's alleged abductors.
Prosecutors say Clemens Tinnemeyer stole millions from a Mexican drug carter and they snatched Cole Puffinburger as ransom. The defense is claiming the whole thing was set up by Puffinburger's family.
Tinnemeyer testified he was high on methamphetamine when his grandson was taken in 2008. He told the court that he and Cole were close and often played football. He says he gave the child the nickname "Cole-Monster."
But defense lawyers say the real monster is Tinnemeyer because when Cole disappeared, he did nothing and waited two days before reporting the abduction.
