Man Confesses To Etan Patz’s Murder

The mysterious disappearance of Etan Patz may have been solved with the arrest of Pedro Hernandez (51). Patz disappearance on his way to school in 1979 sparking a nationwide campaign that saw his face become the first of many to appear on the side of milk cartons.

The amazing turn of events unfolded after police began digging in a basement of another suspect who they feared had buried Etan under cement. An anonymous tipster (believed to be a relative), who saw the coverage, contacted police with new information.

Police said Hernandez, who worked in a grocery store near where Etan disappeared and had never been a suspect, looked relieved when taken in for questioning. He confessed to police that he had lured the little boy into the store with a can of soda before strangling him in the basement. He then told police he stuffed Etan’s body into a bag and threw it in the trash where it was most likely picked up by city sanitation workers. Other reports say he dismembered Etan before discarding the body in various plastic bags.

* Reports are now claiming the family contacted police soon after Hernandez confessed to killing the boy in 1979, however police dismissed Hernandez as a nutter after interviewing him. Article here.

Pedro Hernandez would have only been  18 when he killed Etan.

Pedro Hanandez was recently diagnosed with cancer.

  1. Have to watch this one. It will be so hard to prove, especially when an earlier confession was dismissed as false.
    I do have to wonder if this isn’t another false confession possibly made because he is dying and wants to get attention, or, if you want to make him a good guy, he is doing it for the family to have closure.
    If it is proven that it was him those officers have a lot of explaining to do.

  2. And may he rot in hell!
