NYC COUNCIL MEMBER LETITIA JAMES DEVASTATED BY SENSELESS DEATH OF ORTHODOX JEWISH BOY
“Residents all over Brooklyn are devastated to learn about the eight-year-old Orthodox Jewish boy from Borough Park whose body was found early this morning. The crime committed against him is absolutely horrific and a tragic fate for all involved. I extend my deepest condolences to the Kletzky family, and want to express gratitude for community support, especially to the Shomrim volunteer patrol, along with the more than 2,000 volunteers from New York and New Jersey who took to the streets to assist the NYPD. My sincerest prayers go out to family and loved ones on this very sad day,” said Council Member James.
