BREAKING: Leiby Kletzky Drugged According To Autopsy

Earlier this afternoon, the Daily News reported on its website that newly released autopsy reports for murdered 8-year-old Leiby Kletzky show he was given “a cocktail of drugs” prior to being suffocated.

According to the report, the young boy had the remnants of a muscle relaxer, anti-psychotic medication, a pain killer, as well as Tylenol in his system.

From the News:

After he was drugged, the boy was smothered, the autopsy shows. His accused killer, Levi Aron, told police he smothered the boy with a towel prior to dismembering his body.

Aron is expected by many to be indicted today. Brooklyn DA Charles J. Hynes had been waiting to have the autopsy results as evidence before proceeding.
