NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Etan Patz would stop by the same SoHo bodega nearly every day to buy candy or soda, and his alleged killer was working at the store the day the 6-year-old boy vanished in 1979, the defendant’s brother-in-law told jurors Thursday.
Juan Santana spent his second day on the witness stand in the Manhattan murder trial of Pedro Hernandez. Santana said he helped Hernandez get hired as a stock clerk at the bodega where he also worked.READ MORE: New York State To Adopt New CDC Guidelines For Vaccinated People Starting This Wednesday, Cuomo Says
The prosecutor declared Santana an uncooperative, hostile witness. Santana answered most questions, through an interpreter, with “I don’t remember” or “I don’t recall,” 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa reported.
