Author Lisa Cohen Speaks About the Etan Patz Trial

More than 35 years ago, Etan Patz, a six-year old child, disappeared on his way to school and was never seen again.

In 2012, Pedro Hernandez, a former store clerk with a history of mental illness, told investigators he lured the boy into a bodega basement and killed him. Now, at the close of a two-month trial,  jury members are nearing a verdict.

Arianna Skibell interviewed Lisa Cohen, who wrote the book “After Etan: The Missing Child that Held America Captive.” Cohen first talks about the evidence presented to the jury.
