The suspect is old man who is already in jail.

Looks like justice in this case will just have to make do with a chubby.

Apparently this suspect is not in prison and lives in New Jersey. So he is already suffering terribly.

I hope for the sake of the parents this isn't some joker. I remember this case and the movie they made was haunting.

I was a mean little kid. When Etan disappeared, I was about eleven years old and saw the report on the television. His family's phone number was listed in the book, so about one o'clock in the morning, I called them up. I didn't say anything but just quietly sobbed into the phone. After about thirty seconds, I said, "Bye bye mommy," and hung up. I cracked up at the time, but as I got older I realized that it was wrong to do. To try to make ammends, I called back about fifteen years later and posed again as Etan. I told them I was fine but didn't want to see them again before quickly hanging up. I hope they felt better about the whole thing because I did.

Odds are the alleged perp has an expensive, incurable disease and would dearly love to stick New York with the tab of his care and feeding from here on in. The Post detects a whiff of bullshiat (which they are excellent at detecting except when it comes from a Republican legislator):


"People are pretty suspect and questioning the validity of statements he (the suspect) has made and the reliability here."

Ugh, the wikipedia article on "her" is so obnoxious and confusing given that "she" only started hormone therapy in 2010, well after all of the events detailed in the article take place.

Ramos, who is 68 and is doing time in a Pennsylvania prison for molesting two boys, has admitted taking a young boy back to his apartment to rape on the day Etan disappeared.

Pretty creepy, even if not murder-ey.

You sound young.

I remember being about 7 years old and stopping at a HoJo on the CT Turnpike in May/June 1979 on a roadtrip to visit my grandparents in NJ. There was an Etan Patz missing poster on the front door. The story had just broken in the news very recently, and I remember being very confused why someone would want to steal a child from their family... and the strange feeling of having seen something on the news and then seeing it "for real" out in the world.

This was an enormous story 33 years ago, at least here in the northeast. It remains a big story in the NY Metro area. I would hazard a guess and say that the majority of folks in the US my age and older heard of this boy, or are at least familiar with the story.

Thread, and probably news story, over in two.


The worst case of "making implicating statements to the police" was the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department getting confessions out of 3 or 4 completely innocent men regarding the slaying of a bunch of Buddhist monks.

Turns out the teen-aged killer showed up at a press conference at the murder scene, smiling for the cameras.

Who?

Desk Sargent: Hey, Chief! We've got a man here confessing to the murder of Etan Patz!
Chief of Police: Who?
Desk Sargent: That's what I said. I'll ask him.
(asks alleged perp)
Desk Sargent: Apparently it's somebody he murdered 33 years ago.
Chief of Police: Check the cold case file.
Desk Sargent: Computer says No.!
Chief of Police: That reference is dated.
Desk Sargent: So's the murder. Our cold case file only goes back to 1993.
Chief of Police: Call the Archive Unit and have them check the paper files.
Desk Sargent: Right, Chief!
Chief of Police: That reference is even more dated than the last one!

This has been a Brantgoose two man playlet.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disappearance_of_Etan_Patz

Google remembers.

Fun fact: Etan was the first missing child ever depicted on a milk cartoon.

Adorable kid. No wonder he was famous 33 years ago.

That photo is a little risqué by today's standards. I guess there really is kiddie pron on Wikipedia.

FTFA: "The building was containing Miller's workshop was on the two-block route Etan was taking to his school bus when he disappeared on Friday, May 25, 1979.

But the search turned up no new evidence. Two Dumpsters filled with debris removed from the 800-square-foot basement at 127B Prince St. were sent to a Staten Island landfill for preservation.

2012-05-24 10:51:01 AM
I was thinking about the guy who capped to Jon-Benet's killing too when I heard this on the radio, but I have to think that the NYPD would be very, VERY careful about this considering the nerve the Etan Patz case touches AND how bad they've looked recently.

Bottom line: They wouldn't go public on this if they had some pretty good stuff on this guy. IMHO. I could be wrong.

To be fair though, that was before the days of Sheriff Joe. MCSO has always been incompetent thugs, it's just that now with Joe they've got a particularly vile public face.

Right? Who uses the word "creep" in a serious news article?

Anyway. I think it's good they're still trying to solve this case, but a few months ago they made it seem like they have it 99% solved, and that they'd find the smoking gun in that basement, and considering they found nothing, I wouldn't be surprised if this random guy is just looking for 5 minutes of crazy person fame by confessing.

Extreme long shot, cadaver dog hit is what kick started the renewing of the investigation. Now that said, I don't know what the false-positive metrics are for cadaver dogs, but they tend to be trained to alert on features of decomposition. It's not the way you want a break to come in any missing child case. And it didn't seem to help matters in the Caylee Anthony case, so it's just a lead, nothing concrete.

No, actually old as dirt.....

This is one that scared me sh*tless because it was down the road from where I lived and my uncle was on the County Police Department and had 3 young daughters at the same time. I was 11. They were never found. The Wiki on it is fascinating and has details I never heard about.
