NYPD: Person implicated in Etan Patz death

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City police commissioner says a person who's in custody has implicated himself in the disappearance and death of Etan Patz 33 years ago.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly said in a statement that further details would be released later Thursday.

The 6-year-old vanished while walking to a Manhattan bus stop 33 years ago.

The April excavation of a Manhattan basement yielded no obvious human remains and little forensic evidence that would help solve the decades-long mystery of what happened to Etan Patz. The 6-year-old vanished while walking to a bus stop in 1979.
