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.

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?
