Etan Patz Update: Pedro Hernandez Pleads Not Guilty

| Filed under: Legal Matters

Pedro Hernandez, the man who provided a unsolicited confession to police for the murder of Etan Patz in 1979, was officially charged with 1st degree kidnapping and a 2nd degree charge of murder.

However, despite his admission to police - him and his lawyer have plead Not Guilty for the murder of Patz and cite his confession as the result of Hernandez's mental disorder and general poor mental health in general.

Here's what his lawyer said:

“The really sad part of this case is that it will take time, it will take money … and it will not tell the city what happened to Etan Patz."

But Manhattan's DA disagree and said:

“We believe the evidence that Mr. Hernandez killed Etan Patz to be credible and persuasive, and that his statements are not the product of any mental illness."

Hernandez's next appearance in court is on Dec. 12, and we hope that some headway is made in the case for all of the families involved that have been affected by this long termed tragic set of circumstances.
