BOROUGH PARK - Thousands came out tonight to mourn the death of 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky, who was murdered in Borough Park yesterday.

Police say 35-year-old Levi Aron abducted Kletzky before killing and dismembering his body and placing body parts in his home refrigerator.

Many who came out for the funeral say they were a part of the search parties yesterday trying to find the missing boy.

Others said they wanted to come out and support the family because in the tight-knit Hasidic community, the loss of one child is like losing their own.
