Pedro Hernandez, charged with kidnapping and murdering 6-year-old Etan Patz, confessed in 2012 to police that he choked the boy, stuffed him in a box and left him in a New York alley. Patz vanished as he walked alone for the first time to a school bus stop in his Manhattan neighborhood on May 25, 1979. In his confession to police, which the defense says was coerced, Hernandez said the boy was alive and moving when he put him in a box.
