Mugshot Released of Suspect in Six-Year-Old's Killing


From NBC 4 New York:

NBC 4 New York has obtained the mugshot of the suspect arrested for allegedly luring 6-year-old Etan Patz off a SoHo street and strangling him in a basement.

Pedro Hernandez, 51, was arraigned last week on a charge of second-degree murder. The charge came 33 years to the day that Patz disappeared off a SoHo street.

According to the criminal complaint, Hernandez told police he strangled Patz and placed him inside a plastic bag, causing his death.

His court-appointed lawyer, Harvey Fishbein, told the court that Hernandez is a schizophrenic and had both auditory and visual hallucinations.
