Best Amateur Sleuth New York 2011 - Yaakov German

When little Leiby Kletzky vanished from yeshiva day camp last July in Borough Park, Yaakov German went on the hunt. German?s son was the eight-year-old boy?s teacher, so he had an in?and he used it to grab a look at the school?s security video. German and his pals spotted footage of the boy leaving the school and, banging on doors in the neighborhood, persuaded a locksmith and others to show them their security videos. German and crew wound up taking the video to cops, who identified the car. Killer Levi Aron was found?too late, but at least he was found?in large part because of this one-shot Bobover Hasidic detective.
