The dismembered body of a missing 9-year-old Hasidic boy was found at two locations in Brooklyn and police this morning arrested a suspect in the slaying — who had the child’s severed feet in his freezer, sources told The Post.
Police made the gruesome discovery after raiding a Kensington home and arresting the 35-year-old suspect, who led them to parts of missing boy Leibby Kletsky‘s body, stuffed in a suitcase and hidden in a Dumpster outside an auto repair shop about two miles away, sources said.
Police said they found three knives in a butcher block inside the suspect’s apartment.
It was a tragic end to the “angelic” 9-year-old, who disappeared Monday afternoon after getting lost while walking alone for the first time from his Borough Park day camp and following a man down a busy street, sparking a massive search.
“There are no words, just no words, to describe the sense of what happened here,” said State Assemblyman Dov Hikind in an interview this morning.
Police did not release the name of the suspect, but sources said they tracked him down by tracing credit card transactions and video surveillance that showed the boy walking behind a bearded man on 45th Street and Dahill Road and possibly getting into a gold-colored car.
