Etan Patz is a little 6-year-old boy still seeking justice and rest. On Friday it was reported that New York detectives continued to search a SoHo location in order to see that he gets both.
Boston.com reported that despite failed attempts in the past, investigators were once again searching the former grocery store location where Pedro Hernandez was employed at the time of the crime. But police aren't saying if they found anything belonging to one of the first missing milk carton featured children.
They searched the confessing suspect's home earlier this year and left with bags of items, but they found no body. They probably didn't think they would, of course. But they looked anyway.
Prosecutors continue to try to prepare for a court case against the man accused of luring the child away from a school bus stop in 1979. Part of that process, however, includes finding the child's corpse if at all possible.
And for some reason they seem to think the body may still be in the building where the child's confessing killer worked. And wouldn't that just be the way it turns out, after all the manpower and searches have yielded nothing so far?
In the meantime, the court case against the suspect has been put on hold and investigators maintain hope that the walls of the former bodega will soon yield evidence that ties Pedro Hernandez to Etan Patz.
