Investigators have turned up three boxes of evidence relating to the 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz. The discovery was made amid an ongoing murder trial over the missing boy.
The boxes were uncovered in a Harlem police station miles from the precinct where Patz vanished. Prosecutors are currently working to process the evidence and turn it over to the defense; one defense attorney estimated there were over 1,400 pages of information in one box alone.
The new evidence could throw a wrench in the ongoing trial of Pedro Hernandez, a former stock clerk at a convenience store near the route where Patz walked to school. Hernandez is accused of murdering Patz and hiding the body decades ago.
