The family of an 8-year-old New York City boy who was abducted, killed and dismembered has sued the suspect in his death and the suspect’s father for $100 million each.
Leiby Kletzky went missing July 11 while walking home from day camp in Brooklyn. Police say his feet were found in the freezer at suspect Levi Aron’s apartment.
Prosecutors say the boy was killed after he met Aron on a street and asked for help.
Aron has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and kidnapping.
Aron’s father owned the building where his son lived. The two civil lawsuits say he should’ve known what was going on and could’ve stopped it. He hasn’t responded to a telephone message left Monday seeking comment.
