Young boy murdered, dismembered in Brooklyn

The big story in New York the past couple days has been the murder of Leiby Kletzky. The 8-year-old boy first went missing Monday afternoon, and after a massive search party assembled, cops discovered Leiby’s remains in a freezer Tuesday night.

Levi Aron, a 35-year-old is accused of kidnapping the boy, then killing him and chopping up his body once he saw the efforts to find the boy were building.

I contributed to the story on today’s front page, which tells of the community’s reaction and recounts the boy’s funeral.

The lede sums it up very well: Monsters are real
