A new report say the United States Attorney's office does not want to prosecute confessed child killer Levi Aron. Federal jurisdiction can apply because Aron took Leiby Kletzky to New Jersey from New York and back , crossing state lines.
Why won't the feds take the case against Levi Aron?
Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch declined comment, but a source said her office "has no interest" in taking on Aron's prosecution. A key reason is that the suspect may be mentally incompetent to stand trial. His lawyers, who have hinted at an insanity defense, have asked for a psychological evaluation, claiming Aron has been hearing voices.
Aron, 35, was indicted for first-degree murder and is facing life behind bars without the possibility of parole if convicted in New York.
I don't for a minute believe this the only or the primary reason why the feds aren't exerting jurisdiction of the Aron case.
I think there is much more to this case than meets the eye, and the feds will step in if and when they think the time is right.
Even more evidence was removed from Levi Aron's apartment yesterday that may hint toward what may be the future of this case:
Cops yesterday took boxes and bags from Aron's home. One bag was tagged "kids pants" and another was labeled "pillow, blue child's spoon and pink cup," but there's no indication he attacked more than one child.
"The evidence so far, including clothing items, relates to the one victim," Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne said.
Other reports indicate there were multiple articles of clothing, more than what one kid could wear at one time.
