Leiby Kletzky's remains were found stuffed in a trash bin and a man's refrigerator this morning, according to investigators.

Police arrested 35-year-old Levi Aron after they say he admitted to killing and dismembering Kletzky.

Hundreds of people within Kiryas Joel's tight-knit Hasidic community went to Brooklyn to help with the search yesterday.

The village's emergency services also sent water, ice and other supplies to aid in search efforts that ultimately turned tragic.
