In Etan Patz case, defense focuses on the other suspect

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/01/2015 - 21:44

FILE - In this combination of two file photos, convicted child molester Jose Antonio Ramos, left, and Pedro Hernandez, right, who is accused of abducting and killing six-year-old Etan Patz in 1979 are shown. Hernandez could not have murdered Patz, his defense has said. He is mentally ill, and that's why he falsely confessed to choking the boy in the basement of the convenience store where he worked. And another man long suspected in the crime is the true killer - there was just not enough evidence to try him, the defense argues. Testimony about Ramos, whose shadow has loomed large over the ongoing trial, is expected this week. (AP Photo/File)NEW YORK (AP) — An enigmatic figure looms over the trial of a man who confessed to killing Etan Patz: the former suspect who some still believe is behind the disappearance of the 6-year-old on May 25, 1979.
