I remember seeing him in the news several times since 1979. Never forgot that name.

I sorta have to agree with pluckmemory, here.

I was born in NYC in the early 80's (1981) and always knew the city to be very dangerous- the police force was really corrupt and unorganized, in fact the crime rates only dropped dramatically after Rudy Giuliani Became the Mayor and cleaned up the city to the point where one could walk, alone, at night throught central park with out getting, mugged/robbed, raped, etc. It was that bad, before!

I tried yesterday to read all of the links, but it got too much for me. I hope the rest of you can understand that.

This story breaks my heart, not only for the child, but for how these cases were handled with such disconcern, or rather.... I don't know what the best word/term would be as a time in our recent history that such incedents were brushed aside so casually and not persued to the end of the earth for all that I truly do care.

I can feel nothing but sadness and horror for the parents to only be able to imagine what their own son went threw!!! I saw it in the fathers reaction after all of this time--he has tortured himself to try to understand his onw sons last moments............... Fking Heartbreaking.

An arrest was made today in the disappearance of Etan Patz.

Confession was made by Pedro Hernandez, a New Jersey man, who says he "choked" Etan and put the body in a plastic bag which he put in the trash.

Additional announcements are expected soon in this case.

As far as I've read, there is no evidence to connect a sexual assault done to Etan. It's a tragedy, none-the-less. I'm sitting on the porch right now with my 6 year old grandson visiting from Austin. When I read about Etan, the boy becomes very real.
