Levi Aron Confession Released by the Cops: 'I Understand This May Be Wrong'

Levi Aron is suspected in the murder of Kletzky, but not yet been charged.jpeg
NBC NY has obtained a transcript "edited to remove parts of an extremely graphic nature" of the confession of Levi Aron, the man who allegedly killed 8-year-old Brooklyn boy Leiby Kletzky. The confession is odd and, obviously, disturbing, even without the "graphic" details. It includes a trip to a wedding -- did anyone see the man with the boy there, and if so, have they not come forward? -- Aron apparently going to work on Tuesday, leaving Leiby there alone, returning and making him a sandwich...and then Aron finally panicking when he saw fliers for the missing boy and, instead of simply returning him to his family, killing and dismembering him. They were together for more than 12 hours before that.

According to law enforcement sources, the following are the suspect's words as written on a legal pad during questioning:

My name is Levi Aron... On Monday evening around 5:30 I went to my dentist, Dr. Sorcher, to make a payment for visit for exam routine.

A boy approached me on where the Judaica book store was. He was still there when went out from the dentist's office. He asked me for a ride to the Judaica book store. While on the way he changed his mind and wasn't sure where he wanted to go.

So I asked if he wanted to go for the ride -- wedding in Monsey -- since I didn't think I was going to stay for the whole thing since my back was hurting. He said ok.

Due to traffic, I got back around 11:30 p.m. ... so I brought him to my house thinking I'd bring him to his house the next day. He watched TV then fell asleep in the front room. I went to the middle room to sleep. That next morning, he was still sleeping when I was ready to leave.

So I woke him and told him I'll bring him to his house... when I saw the flyers I panicked and was afraid. When I got home he was still there so I made him a tuna sandwich....

Afterwards -- I panicked because I didn't know what to do with the body.... carried parts to the back room placing parts between the freezer and the refrigerator ...

... went to clean up a little then took a second shower. I panicked and .. Then putting the parts in a suitcase. Then carrying suitcase to the car ...placing in backseat on floor behind passenger side.

... drove around approximately around 20 minutes before placing it in the dumpster on 20th street just before 4th Avenue. Then went home to clean and organize.

I understand this may be wrong and I'm sorry for the hurt that I have caused.

Separately, the New York Post reports that neighborhood kids and their parents were creeped out by Aron, a 35-year-old plumbing-supply store stockboy. Of course, hindsight is always 20-20 in these cases.

Update: The Daily News reports that detectives may not believe Aron's statement is completely true. They apparently think Leiby was killed on Monday, and that the boy was not taken to a wedding (which would explain why no one saw him there). Also via the Daily News, which goes into more graphic detail as to the repellent scene that awaited cops in Aron's apartment:

Investigators have no evidence Leiby was sexually molested before he was killed. There were indications he was tied with a rope.

They should put this bastard in jail and tell the rest of the population to take care of him. He should get a slow dead. I don't know how this little kid's mother allow him to walk by himself knowing about the dangers on the street with so many maniacs on the street. Im pretty sure this killer's lawyer is telling him to act crazy so he could just be on a mental institution.

truth is that he should get the death penalty. Even torturing him won't bring back that precious innocent child. He has no place in society and they need to find out if they can get the injection for him. he was well enough to make many choices....where to put the body parts (G-d have mercy) and cleaning it all up and choosing where to put different parts. He had a job for quite a while, he kept a car, and this speaks for his sanity to some extent.This is just so heart wrenching. At least the decent people are coming out and speaking, that is heart warming in the time of such emotional and spiritual pain.....

I wonder if the med-exam can determine sexual activity with the body chopped up the way it was? all those kind of men hurting little children should get their Ball/penis cut off especially this one.When he 'd look down he;d think of the cutting of that baby boy,May his soul be at peace.

The strange thing is keeping the feet, as Gilles de Rais kept eyes and hands for various occult rituals in his reign of terror as Bluebeard, the French elite serial killer of Joan of Arc's time, 1430's.

This Levi Aron also had head injury history as have many serial killers, and it appears by the body parts he did keep, it is possibly not coincidental, it appears ritualistic in some occult fashion, which is also a serial killer trait as with Dahmer who was into occult practices and therefore kept various skulls and tokens for these practices.

Wouldn't surprise me of the dig more bones from out of this guy's closet, definitely some spiritual activity of evil origins taking place around that fiend, and how can a spike like this activity really be considered a spontaneous event? I'm sure they realize this stuff, and have more evidence than they are summarizing at this time.

This guy's past should be examined closely, and so should his ties to that community he haunts.

Umm, is this confession reminiscent of Albert Fish to anyone else? (Seriously. Wikipedia that.)

HECK YEAH IT SOUNDS TOO MUCH LIKE ALBERT FISH!!! This case pisses me off with every bit of "confession" that comes out of his mouth. Life (soon to be death) in prison. End of story. There better not be any "insanity" crap pulled in this one, sending him to a mental hospital or some place where he's "treated". NO, the only treatment he needs is the good beating the other inmates will give him for what he's done!

hmm an interest ing method used of confession as if he was blogging this. The fliers were out within 1-day? kinda fast, very pro-active dad in his search. Sadly the paranoia that surfaces amogst NYK'ers has done it again. More than half suffer from Bipolar and various mental diseases.

Where are Levi Aron's parents?

According to the Post, his mom died of cancer eight years ago and his dad, Jack, "works in the accounts-payable division at a Manhattan photo store. Neighbors said that he is religious and domineering." We identified Jack as a Facebook friend/possible relative yesterday....but it seems like his Facebook page has been removed. Which isn't surprising.
