Pedro Hernandez Arrested In Etan Patz Case, Updated


Pedro Hernandez has been formally charged with the crime of SECOND DEGREE MURDER , according to a report by ABC News.

And now the Houston Chronicle is reporting that Hernandez may be BIPOLAR .

So what if he is?

Many people, who are diagnosed with bipolar disorder, in this Country, don't go around murdering little kids!

Hernandez has no excuse for what he did. He knew that he had done a "bad thing" after he killed Etan Patz. That's why he didn't take Etan's little body back out onto the street and shout, "Hey, everybody...look what I just did!"

After his conscience kicked back in, he kinda-sorta confessed his crime to some people (including the police, though they now deny that ever happened). Then, he tried to hide what he had done by keeping his mouth shut for 33 more years.

Now, that Hernandez is arrested and formally charged with Etan's murder, his lawyer is trying to wring a "He can't help it, he's sick" plea out of the judicial system.

I don't think that the lawyer will be successful.

I believe that Pedro Hernandez will be convicted and sent straight to prison for what he did. Hernandez committed a horrible crime and in the end...after all of these years...he'll finally pay for his sin against young Etan Patz.

Pedro Hernandez, and his evil, won't stay hidden, forever. Because, after many years, his own family turned him in.


Pedro Hernandez is going to make an appearance in court, today. Good. But one question (and I haven't heard anyone else bring this up yet) still bothers me about this case: What if Etan Patz isn't the only child that Pedro Hernandez has kidnapped and murdered?
What if there are more victims out there, somewhere and Hernandez hasn't said anything about them,  yet?

It just seems to me that a pedophile like him would have racked-up a long list of child victims, over the years.

Perhaps that's a possibility to consider. Maybe the police already have.


The school never contacted Stan and Juli Patz, to report that Etan wasn't in class, on the day that he disappeared. Does that mistake sound familiar?
It should.

The same thing happened on the day (June 4, 2010) that seven-year-old Kyron Horman disappeared from Portland, Oregon.

The teacher marked him absent, even though Kyron had already been at his school science fair, earlier that morning.

Nobody looked around and asked, "Hey, wait a minute, where did Kyron go?"

And the school never called Kyron's family in an effort to establish his whereabouts...after the roll call in the classroom was taken.

Public School 3 never called and asked where Etan was, either.

Don't blame the parents for allowing their 6 yr old to walk 2 blocks. A child should be able to do that. It was his neighborhood, he was familiar with it, felt safe and probably was familiar with Hernandez as well. Not all children are timid, some are very intelligent, confident and adventerous.

I didn't say anything about that in my post. However, since you want to go that route...

I think that it was grossly irresponsible of the mother to let Etan take that walk by himself, that day.

I bet that she regrets her decision, too.

If Etan was all that "intelligent", as you say, then he would not have gone with Hernandez.

Etan was six, Liza. He was way too young to have been left to his own devices in SoHo, like that.

The lesson is learned and Etan is gone. But it is a lesson, oh yes, it is.
