Levi Aron Suspected in Murder of Brooklyn Boy Leiby Kletzky; Facebook Page Asks, 'Is Your Family Safe?'

Levi Aron is suspected in the murder of Kletzky, but not yet been charged.jpeg
Levi Aron has been named as the suspect, not yet charged, in the brutal murder of Leiby Kletzky, the Brooklyn boy missing since Monday who was found chopped up in a suitcase, left in a Dumpster in Park Slope. It has also been reported that some of the boy's remains were found in Aron's refrigerator. The suspect's Facebook page, under the name Levi A., can be seen here, including 238 "friends" (one, Jack Aron, could be a relative). Most disturbing is the Facebook group Levi belongs to entitled, "IS YOUR FAMILY SAFE? Find out who really lives in your area!" which catalogs sex offenders. There is, as of yet, no indication Kletzky was molested, though NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly said in a statement that the massive search for the missing boy likely spooked Aron into killing young Leiby.

Aron's Facebook page, which lists him as a resident of Brooklyn, New York, also shows an interest in popular culture including musicians like Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and at least three American Idol contestants, along with television like Seinfeld, The Office and Glee.

Most of his 238 Facebook friends are women, like "Real Paula Abdul," though other Brooklyn residents by the last name of Aron are in there, too. Since we found the page, Aron has lost at least eight Facebook friends, indicating that as his identity circulates, his online network has started to distance themselves from him.

The other groups he belongs to online include Kabbalah Online and Early Steps Therapy. The most startling, though, "IS YOUR FAMILY SAFE?", includes "Easy Steps... to Find Sex Offenders In Your Neighborhood!"

We'll continue to update this post as we learn more.

Update, 1:10 p.m.: Click here to listen to the NYPD statement from today, including the theory that Leiby was lost and Aron offered to drive him home, as well as the aforementioned idea that Aron panicked and killed the boy after seeing the extent of the search and the posters around Brooklyn.

Right now police comm. Kelly has him under luck and key. this guy is has more protected guards than the French guy. Most likely he will be sent up to the federal jail in ny for now until the trial then he will be sent a isolation away from the public jail system. i really wish they did not spend any money on this trial. But u know this will be media circus for the rest of the summer. I really hope the media does not keep on printing this guy in the paper. They should shut down that camp for lack of responsibility of send children home to their parents. Any one who works in public education k thru 5 knows children place on the buses or the parents pick them up.

I disagree.  It's not a big deal for an 8 year old to walk 7 blocks.  It's not the camp's fault, the parents' fault or the boy's fault that someone kidnapped and killed the boy.  Levi Aron's psychosis is to blame.  He needs help/medication and he needs to be kept out of society from now on.  There are other predisposed time-bombs like him who could explode with a trigger.  The rest of us should be aware of the very slim possibility that someone could attack our children, and therefore keep our children under close watch.  However, it is still not anyone's fault but Levi's that this horrible crime happened, and the camp should not be shut down.  It is a one in a billion type situation that occurred, and no one ever would have thought this would happen.

A dumb racist that can't spell + 2 people who actually 'liked' this = another two-legged demon that NEEDS TO BE SHOT!!! A child has been murdered AND dismembered! May God send your sick twisted souls to hell with Levi Aron!

The only thing creepier than Aron's profile is this absurd, shallow attempt at journalism. You're indulging in the worst kind of  facile pop psychology and sensationalistic, after-the-fact projection. Yes, a love of Jordin Sparks is certainly proof positive that a person is a homicidal whack job, or worse.

The truth is, even taking into account what we know thus far of any past misdeeds, there were apparently no red flags to warn of this monster's actions on Monday/Tuesday. He wore a terrifyingly normal, even banal face.  

And are you trying to get this sick bastard's friends and relatives harassed? To what end, exactly? Save the pitchforks and torches for the person who deserves them.

Stop mixing issues. Statistics show the the leading percentage of pedophiles are straight men. Pedophilia is not about sex. It is about control and abuse. Your opinions on gay rights have nothing to do with this tragedy.

Gay men will be gay whether they are married or not. They will have gay sex whether they are married or not. The rings on their fingers change nothing except their legal status. The rings on their fingers do not cause them to victimize children. The rings on their fingers do not cause them to abduct and kill innocent boys who get lost on their way home from day camp.

Please refrain from commenting on topics you obviously know nothing about.

Levi Aron will probably get killed in prison even before he makes it to trial. Child murderers and molesters do not do well in jail.

"There is, as of yet, no indication Kletzky was molested." !!!???  Are you guys kidding?  If being killed and dismembered doesn't qualify for molestation, all the world's dictionaries should be redacted.

Good point.  Everything has become so sexualized, people automatically insert "sexual" in front of molestation, when the two are not the same.

Levi killed the boy because Levi has "command" hallucinations.  They are very real to him.  True panic is something that most of us will never experience, but even sane people will crumble under the pressure of panic.  A person with a mental disorder, like Levi Aron, unfortunately does not respond to stress the same way that 'normal' people do, and although it is difficult for us to relate to him, that is essentially why he killed the little boy.  In that sense, it is not his fault because he did not commit this crime to hurt people.  He needs to be imprisoned, but in a place for people with mental disorders.  That would be more appropriate for him than a regular prison full of criminals.  He seriously is not in his 'right mind' and he does not belong on the streets with the rest of us.

There's more to this than meets the eye.

He had a criminal record in Tennessee and in more than one city, Plaintiff was a bank/finance cos.

His ex-wife had relatives also served as defendants in more than one city of similar above offenses.
