New details have emerged about Jimmy Lee Dykes, the 65-year-old captor of a 5-year-old boy who was in a standoff with the FBI for nearly a week.
CBS News senior correspondent and former FBI assistant director John Miller said that as the FBI Critical Incident Response Group (CIRG) and the Dale County Sheriff looked to bring in a "third party intermediary," or TPI, to advance negotiations, it became clear that Dykes had no relationship with his family or neighbors.
"They always look for a TPI. As they negotiate, they can bring in a co-worker or a friend, somebody that the hostage-taker likes and respect. Sometimes that can help move things along," Miller explained Wednesday on "CBS This Morning."
