The saga of the kidnapped five-year old in Dale County, Alabama has come to a conclusion. The boy is safe and resting in a hospital and his captor, Jimmy Lee Dykes — who kidnapped the boy after shooting his bus driver dead — is dead himself following an FBI raid.

Now, the FBI has released images of the exterior of bunker where Dykes held the boy, and well... it looks like what I guess a bunker would look like, but still a stunning sight nonetheless. The photo above shows a wide-angle exterior shot of the bunker, which all told doesn't look very conspicuous at all. The photo below is a closer shot, that shows the long PVC pipe used by the FBI in order to communicate with Dykes.


The FBI has yet to release images of the inside of the bunker, but those should be coming along soon.
