Convicted Etan Patz Killer To Be Freed After 25 Years In Prison

Filed under: Legal Matters

Jose Ramos, the man who was convicted of murdering Etan Patz almost twenty five years ago, is set to be freed from prison next month.

Ramos was declared responsible for Patz's death in civil court, but could not be charged criminally because of a lack of evidence. The evidence prosecutors did have was based off of Ramos' relationship with Patz's former babysitter and the fact that police arrested him and found a ton of pictures of young blonde boys in Ramos' backpack.

However, since Pedro Hernandez's confession this past spring to murdering Patz - a confession that many are wary of, the courts have determined to let Ramos leave after more than two decades behind bars.
