Rest In Peace Leiby Kletzky

I went to bed last night hearing about a missing 8 year-old boy from Borough Park in Brooklyn, NY. His name is Leiby Kletzky.

He was walking home from summer camp for the first time alone, after asking his parents if he could walk by himself. His mother was to meet him half way. He never arrived.

Instead, he got lost and asked a man for directions. The man dismembered his body and stuffed him in a freezer and a suitcase that he then dumped in a dumpster.

I am sick about this. I cannot begin to tell you. I have cried over this.

An innocent child walking through a safe Orthodox Jewish neighborhood where everyone knows everyone.

What is the world coming to? May he rest in peace.

I don't even know what to say, well I do, but I won't. I hope Leiby's family can find some peace in the capture of this monster, and that he gets what he deserves.

Rest in peace Leiby, so sorry you life ended in this way.

I am appalled. I can only reach to the Lord and ask for his blessing on the soul of this little one. How this image must haunt his mother's dreams. She will be the subject of my prayers tonight.

I understand your frustation. I too have felt sick, sad and disgust after hearing about this innocent, little boy simply walking home after camp and having this horrific thing happen to him--disgusting. My thoughts and sympathy go out to his family, may he find peace and joy in heaven.
Gone far to soon.

It's a sick person that would take and kill an innocent. Liebby, you didn’t make it to moon in this lifetime, but with your outstretched arm, you’ve slipped the surly bonds of earth and gone to touch the face of God. RIP

How incredibly awful! Hearing things like this makes you wonder what sick and twisted individuals live on this earth. But God is surely never sleeping and he will surely get his just punishment in the end. My thoughts and prayers go out to Liebby's family. Rest in peace little one.
