Investigators Probing Murder Suspect Aron In Many States


levi-aron1Levi Aron, accused of killing 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky of Borough Park one week ago, is expected to be indicted this week.┬áThis morning, more boxes of evidence were collected and removed from Aron’s Kensington, Brooklyn home. Over the weekend, investigators took dozens of pieces of evidence, including furniture and his car.

Authorities were busy not only at Aron’s home, allegedly where the murder happened, but in other places in the country. Using Aron’s DNA, police were investigating whether he may be connected to any other cases of child abuse – or worse.

Investigators are fanning out to Tennessee, Arkansas and Florida. In all those places he either married or was engaged to single Jewish women.

“We’re gathering as much forensic evidence as we can,” Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said.

Forensic DNA expert Lawrence Kobilinsky said it’s obvious to him what cops are up to.

“It’s rather unusual for a stellar citizen to jump to the point of murdering a child and dismembering the body,” Kobilinsky said. “I think the police feel that there may be other victims.”

Kobilinsky said cops are likely using a chemical called Luminol to test what they’ve taken for the presence of blood.

“This is a chemical that will react, give off light in the presence of blood,” explained Kobilinsky. “So they are looking for the presence of blood spatter throughout the house and they’re taking various items of furniture where there may be evidence of other victims.”

Anything recovered can be tested against a database of DNA from missing children.

Hynes said that the evidence that was being taken from Aron’s house will be part of the murder indictment against him, which will be unsealed this week.

“We will ask for the main charge of felony murder, based on the kidnapping, which is murder in the first degree,” Hynes said.

  1. “I am davening that the animals DNA will be linked to unsolved murders in states that have the death penalty”

    Animals do not kill other animals of their own kind, so please stop comparing this sub human to an Animal.

  2. believe it or not–but I think this is the first time he ever did this. It is so shockingly bizarre, that’s why you think he’s a “pro” but when said and done, it will probably have just been an intense psychotic action and he just snapped. It certainly was a chance encounter–but his compulsions took over once he had Leiby under his wing.

    This case is SO shockingly bizarre.
