Officers stormed an underground bunker in Alabama where a 5-year-old boy had been held hostage for nearly a week. Authorities rescued the child leaving the boy’s abductor dead, officials said Monday.

Steve Richardson with the FBI’s office in Mobile said at a news conference Monday afternoon that negotiations had deteriorated with 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes, a man neighbors described as an isolated loner.
