Brooklyn, New York-The search for 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky was finally brought to an end early this morning. Police tracked down a man that they saw talking to him in a grainy surveillance tape just before he disappeared. That man turned out to be Levi Aron and when they asked him where the child was he nodded toward his kitchen. There the investigators discovered parts of the boy’s body in his refrigerator, bloody knives, a bloody cutting board, and lots of blood but that wasn’t the end of the story.The rest of little Leiby’s body was found in a Greenwood Heights autobody shop’s dumpster inside a plastic bag and a red suitcase. Aron has admitted to killing the boy stating that Leiby stopped him Monday while walking home from his summer day camp to ask for directions. This was the first time the boy had ever been allowed to walk home alone and he had apparently lost his way during the 7 block walk.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said that within 35 minutes of leaving the camp Leiby was already in the suspect’s 1990 Honda Accord. He also went on to state that Aron had made statements that he had taken the boy to his home. Later he had seen the fliers about the missing child that were plastered all over the Orthodox Jewish community. “He saw the fliers, panicked and killed the boy,” said Kelly.
Investigators are saying that there was no sign of sexual assault and that Leiby was suffocated before he was dismembered. (Thank God he was already dead before that was started!) Aron has had no crimes against children in the past or arrest history other than one arrest for urinating in public. He lives alone in the same apartment building as his parents.
I think they’ll probably playing the insanity card since it’s not normal for someone to store their victim in their fridge and possibly even cannibalize them. I say I don’t care if he is insane, fry him! He can’t do anything but hurt children anyway!
This comes as a horrible end to a frantic search for this missing child that began on Monday. Leiby Kletzky disappeared while walking the 7 blocks to meet his mother and father after leaving Boyan Day Camp in Borough Park, Brooklyn. He was the only son to his parents. The close-knit Orthodox community raked together a total of $125,000 as a reward for anyone that could lead them to the child. I don’t think there was anyone in the community that wasn’t out searching for this boy.
“This is the worst nightmare that can happen to anybody,” Rabbi Berish Freilich, a senior leader in Brooklyn’s Jewish community, said. He added that until now the Borough Park community was “very safe.”
I should add that the video says he hasn’t been arrested yet but he has now!
