New York City medical examiner’s office
The 14-year-old autistic boy disappeared from his Queens school on Oct. 4, setting off a massive search that included subway tunnels and regular announcements over the PA system at subway stations.
An autopsy was conducted and the cause of death was ruled a suicide. The 57-year-old was found hanged in his jail cell late last week, after he was arrested when police caught him sleeping in a restaurant on Staten Island.
The work began Monday and is expected to continue for about 10 weeks on Staten Island.
The grim and sad search for human remains in the debris from the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks resumes Monday.
A horrible medical mix-up has left a Brooklyn family mourning the death of the wrong baby. And they still don’t know where their child’s body is.
