Police: Suspect may have brought BK boy to Monsey wedding

Police say they are investigating Levi Aron's confession that he took 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky to a wedding in Monsey before he allegedly murdered and dismembered the child.

Aron reportedly told police that he took the boy to a wedding in the Hasidic community in Rockland County Monday evening.

New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has confirmed that Aron did attend the wedding and says that police are now investigating whether or not the boy was with him.

After the wedding, police say Aaron claims his intent was to let Kletzky sleep at his house and bring him home the next day, but then panicked when he heard about the massive search for the child.

Aron pleaded not guilty this afternoon to murder and kidnapping charges. A judge ordered the suspect to undergo a psychological evaluation.
