LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. -- Investigators say William Barger, Lonnie Swarnes and Douglas Strangeland drove to New Jersey in 2010 to kidnap a man named Jeffrey Muller.  But, they ended up targeting the wrong guy with the same name.
The victim was able to escape when the kidnapper's car broke down at Lake of the Ozarks.  Two other men, Andrew Wadel and Roy Slates have already pleaded guilty to their roles in the abduction.
