Pedro Hernandez Knew 'Intimate Details' Connecting Him To Etan Patz Slaying: Sources

Pedro Hernandez, the suspect who allegedly admitted to killing Etan Patz more than 30 years ago, knew "intimate details" about the boy that lead police to believe his story of murder, according to a New York Post exclusive.

From the paper:

The specifics have remained secret and are known by fewer than a dozen current law-enforcement officials, including [New York City] Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, the sources said.

They said the closely held details likely relate to Patz’s body — scars, birth marks, moles or other identifying characteristics — items he wore or had when he disappeared or knowledge the killer gleaned about Patz’s family before the killing.
