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.

A nightmare no parent should ever have to face. The disappearance of 8 year old Leiby Kletzky from a day camp in Brooklyn has turned into a murder investigation after a suspect, Levi Aron, allegedly confessed to the murder and then showed police the butchered remains. Leiby had vanished after leaving the Yeshiba Boyan School and was last scene talking with a man. Sadly, his mother was only a few streets away waiting for him. When detectives came a knocking on Aron’s door they were horrified to learn that not only had Aron murdered the child he had used three carving knives to cut up the body. Some of the remains were in Aron’s freezer while the rest was in a dumpster. It is unclear of the motive and appears it may have been a random act. RIP Leiby Kletzky.
