Man tells police he killed missing NYC boy in 1979


NEW YORK — In a potential break in one of the nation's most baffling missing-children cases, a former convenience-store employee has told police that he suffocated 6-year-old Etan Patz in 1979 and left the boy's body in a box in an alley, law enforcement officials said Thursday.

If Pedro Hernandez's story checks out, it could solve the 33-year-old mystery of what happened to Etan, whose disappearance on his way to school helped give rise to the nation's missing-children movement and made him one of the first abducted youngsters to be pictured on a milk carton.
