The intense hunt for a missing Borough Park boy has taken a shocking and tragic turn. Assemblyman Dov Hikind says authorities have recovered the dismembered remains of 9-year-old Leiby Kletzky.
Half of Kletzky’s body was found in a Kensington, Brooklyn home following a search.
More of Kletzky’s remains were found in a dumpster in Sunset Park.
More than a dozen NYPD detectives swarmed the scene outside the Park Slope Auto Center at 651 Fourth Ave. where the dismembered remains of little Leiby Kletzky were discovered. Sources said the body was found after police checked the large gray trash container, which had its lid open.
“It’s just a horror for every parent,” Hikind said. “I mean it’s just a tragedy today for everyone in New York.”
“There are sick people out there who would do such horrible things to an innocent child,” Hikind said.
Early Wednesday, authorities arrested three people at a Kensington home at 466 East Second Street. FBI and police had to kick the door in. A gold car was found nearby, similar to one seen in a surveillance video police uncovered during their hunt for the boy.
