Milk Maybe Sour But The Case Is Still Warm

Most people probably won’t remember the first face of a child who appeared on a milk carton way back in 1979. His name was Etan Patz and the case has remained unsolved. Well, that might just have changed, thanks to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance who reopened the case in 2010. Etan’s parents urged him to re question  Othniel Miller one of two suspects in the disappearance. Seems Mr Miller performed a sudden concrete flooring renovation on the basement shortly after Etan’s disappearance. New York Police are currently digging up the basement as we speak after cadaver-sniffing dogs picked up the scent of human remains. The other suspect, convicted pedophile Jose Ramos (now in a Pennsylvania prison) may also have had access to the basement as he was working for Miller at the time. Etan’s parents have never moved from their home, in the hope their son would one day find his way back and their phone number remains the same as Etan knew it off by heart. Fingers crossed there will be closure for the family.

Want sauce with that?

  1. I can remember this so vividly. I did not believe it was so long ago.
    I hope that they do find something, the parents need peace. They need to be certain that their son was not one of the ‘hippie children’ that Jose was seen with, and that he was not sold into a sex trade ring as some have said.

      • I was just reading about this case in True Unsolved Crime Cases by Jack Thomas (You can download it for free on Kindle if you don’t want to buy it.) and he has a pretty detailed write up on Jose. Jose was no doubt a pervie pedo. He had multiple convictions and dated the woman that helped the Patz family by walking Etan to the bus stop for a while.
        It is hinted that Jose might have either sold or traded Etan to another person in the child sex trade circles.
        There is even speculation that he could have met back up with the boy and used him to help violate other younger boys.
        I hope all of that is wrong but there is at least 1 detective that seems to think that it is all possible.

        It is sad that I am almost hoping that they find Etan in that basement just so we know that he is at rest now and that the time he might have suffered is short in comparison to what some speculate.

        Besides recently revisiting the case in a book I also lived in the area (kind of) at the time.

        Sorry for getting so twisted.

      • I remember quite a few years back they found a teenager who had been kidnapped as a little kid. It had been so long and the boy had been sexually and physically abused the parents were unable to cope when he returned. So sad.

    Dea God how do parents cope losing a child in such circumstances? I don’t think I could go on, it must be so hard.
