Prosecutor Misspoke, Man Didn't Claim to Be Etan Patz

Thursday, 05 Mar 2015 04:17 PM

A prosecutor trying a suspect for murder in the 1979 disappearance of Etan Patz says she misspoke when she told a judge police interviewed a man who called claiming to be the boy.

Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said in court Thursday she was correcting the record to reflect the man named "Dillion" told police that a childhood classmate might have been Etan.

Dozens of people have called authorities claiming to be Etan over the years since the 6-year-old vanished on his way to school. Prosecutors say they have received other calls during Pedro Hernandez's trial.

Hernandez confessed to choking Etan in 1979 in a convenience store basement, then tossing the body with trash a few blocks away. His body was never found.

His defense says the confession is false.
