Levi Aron Home Dismantled For Evidence in Murder of Leiby Kletzky
The Kensington home of 35-year-old Levi Aron was again the focus of investigators in the case of 8-year-old Brooklyn boy Leiby Kletzky, who Aron admitted to killing last week. The circumstances of the boy's smothering and the disposal of his body are still mysterious, with no evidence yet public that Aron molested the boy, but instead, indications that Aron is "simple-minded" and has a "fondness" for children; panic over the missing persons signs may have led to the killing after Aron abducted the lost child. Sunday, police removed furniture from the home Aron shared with his father, uncle and step-mother including a couch, carpet and two chairs, in addition to two mattresses taken earlier in the weekend. Meanwhile, Leiby's father Nachman Kletzky told City Councilman Brad Lander that he's concerned about the safety of the neighborhood: "He's thinking about what we could do about security cameras to make sure there are no more Leibys."
