NEW YORK — Police say an 8-year-old Brooklyn boy who got lost while walking home from a day camp was killed and dismembered by a stranger who he asked for directions.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly announced Wednesday that a 35-year-old suspect had been arrested after the remains of the missing boy were discovered inside the man's refrigerator.

Levi Aron was taken into custody early Wednesday morning by detectives who had been looking for Leiby Kletzky (LYE'-bee KLEHT'-skee) since Monday.

Kelly says Aron made statements implicating himself in the boy's death.

Investigators tracked Aron with the help of surveillance video that showed him being approached by the lost boy.
