Pedro Hernandez is accused of the kidnapping and murder of 6-year-old Etan Patz, who vanished on May 25, 1979 while walking to a school bus stop in Manhattan's Soho neighborhood. The case ignited a national movement to find missing children, and Patz was one of the first missing children whose picture appeared on a milk carton. Hernandez, 54, was arrested in 2012 after police got a tip that he had confessed at a church group.
