Borough Park, NY - Hardware store clerk Levi Aron, who was charged Wednesday night with brutally murdering 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, gave cops a chilling confession, describing in graphic detail how he suffocated the child with a bath towel and carved up the body in a “panic.”

Leiby vanished early Monday evening while walking home from a Borough Park day camp alone for the first time. Police said that even though he had practiced the route, he got lost and approached Aron for help.

In his confession, posted on the Web site of NBC New York, Aron spun a bizarre and improbable tale, claiming he simply offered to give Leiby a lift to a Jewish bookstore, then invited him to a wedding in upstate Monsey.

Excerpts of Aron’s confession to police: This transcript has been edited to remove parts of an extremely graphic nature. It has not been edited for clarity.

“He asked me for a ride to the Judaica Book store. While on the way, he changed his mind and wasn’t sure where he wanted to go. So I asked if he wanted to go for the ride - a wedding in Monsey - since I didn’t think I was going to stay for the whole thing since my back was hurting. He said OK.”

“Due to traffic, I got back around 11:30 p.m. ... so I brought him to my house, thinking I’d bring him to his house the next day. He watched TV, then fell asleep in the front room. I went to the middle room to sleep. That next morning, he was still sleeping when I was ready to leave. So I woke him and told him ‘I’ll bring him to his house’… when I saw the flyers I panicked and was afraid.”

“When I got home he was still there so I made him a tuna sandwich.”

“I was still in a panic ... and afraid to bring him home. That is when I went for a towel to smother him in the side room. He fought back a little.”

“Afterwards, I panicked because I didn’t know what to do with the body.”

“... [I] carried parts to the back room, placing parts between the freezer and the refrigerator.”

… went to clean up a little then took a second shower.  I panicked and .. Then putting the parts in a suitcase.  Then carrying suitcase to the car …placing in backseat on floor behind passenger side.

 … drove around approximately around 20 minutes before placing it in the dumpster on 20th street just before 4th Avenue.   Then went home to clean and organize.

I understand this may be wrong and I’m sorry for the hurt that I have caused.

the confession makes no sense and is self serving
the boy asked to go to a Jewish bookstore, please
do you want to go to a wedding?
the boy just stayed there the whole day just waiting for him

I think he killed him before the posters and is using that as an excuse.

I could be wrong stranger things have happened

He did not "panic," he knew what he was doing. He probably planned to keep his prisoner for a longer time before he killed him, but had to change his prearranged schedule.

Please do not devote any more time to analyzing this monster. Just send him away for his life in prison and his fellow inmates, will give him the respect that he deserves, just like they respected Jeffrey Dahmer.

I'm very sad to say this but I think this guy and his lawyer are going to plead insanity in which case he won't be locked up for life but will serve time in rehab. I hope this doesn't happen...

 Jul 14, 2011 at 08:53 AM toein Says:

So he admits he took the boy to Monsey. Which in all likelihood means that he took him through NJ, which makes this kidnapping a federal crime. Since the murder happened during the course of a kidnapping, he is eligible for the federal death penalty. Now if only the DA would allow the US Attorney to take over and prosecute the case...

The bochur didn't know the chasan kalah in Monsey.. The article must mean the murderer had been invited to the chassanah.

Levi Aron's parents no more asked for a murderer for a son, then did the Kletzky parents ask for their son to be murdered.

Levi Aron says:
"I understand this may be wrong and I’m sorry for the hurt that I have caused."

MAY be wrong? He's SORRY?

Can we just find some way to kill this man and be done with it already? That is the kind of language Dahmer used.

did he only come up with this (highly unlikely) story so he should be able to rot in a federal facility rather than state prison??

 Jul 14, 2011 at 10:02 AM Benny Says:

They should let him out, and let all the people that knew Leiby listen to that explanation and let's see if they will believe him.
I am sure he will get a tuna sandwich also

lucky for this monster, the lions in the den he's entering A) hate him for being a Jew, and B) the other cold blooded killers have low tolerance for child related crimes. may this cold blooded, heartless, perverted sick animal get what's due to him before the wound reopens at his trial. may he be buried in the plots of the unknown

Does kidnapping carry the death penalty. Unfortunately, the murder was anh N Y state crime-not eligible for the death penalty.

The facts that are not in dispute Levi took Lebby HY'D in his car to his apartment, held him there, murdered him and mutilated his lifeless body. The rest is just filler that can be ignored. If Levy knows what did was "wrong' insanity may not be anavailable plea since he knew what he was doing.
The solace one can take is Hashem will not let levy off easy.
May Lebby be a malitz yosher and arouse compassion in our hearts for one another T'Yeh Zircrono L'Bracha U'L'Zuchut HaRabim.

If you would bother learning the Talmud you would see that G-D brings good through the good and evil through the evil. To bring to this world such a miserable monster means that there is something wrong with them. Sorry but those are the facts.

Just curious who is going to WANT to defend him? just a thought!

What an evil and unfair thing to say!!! there is a possibility that they gave him a horrible childhood, which may explain it but NOT excuse it. And there is also the possiblility that the parents had nothing to do with it. How dare u curse them when you have no idea of who they are and what their story is!

I believe the monster desperately doesn't want people to know that he took Leiby in order to sexually abuse him. There are people who would prefer to be known as murderers than pedophiles. He knew there was no way to cover up the murder, especially not after the evidence found in his freezer but he's attempting to cover up the abuse with this concocted story.

I agree--There is no rehabilitation for a person such as this, there is only the deserved consequence of death, however it may come. And it should come more often than it does in this country. Paying to keep a person such as this alive is madness.

While there is no excuse for the brutality of this man's actions towards an innocent child - I do think people should remember that parents and other relatives did not cause this man to do this heinous act. They should not be vilified and hurt further. They already have to live with the shame of being related to this scum.
