Nachman Kletzky, father of murdered 8-year-old boy Leiby Kletzky, has suggested security cameras could be the key to help prevent future abductions.
Kletzky offered his suggestions during an informal meeting with officials at his Brooklyn home. The officials had visited the Kletzky household to express their condolences, according to the New York Post.
“He’s thinking about what we could do about security cameras to make sure there are no more
Leibys,” Councilman Brad Lander, a representative of Borough Park, told the New York Post.
Surveillance cameras currently in place in Borough Park played a key role in the investigation of the young boy. Kletzky and officials feel that if more cameras were in place, they might actually help to prevent abductions and other crimes.
A security camera captured Kletzky's son, Leiby, walking with the man, Levi Aron, allegedly responsible for his murder.
Rep Jerrold Nadler told the New York Post, “It was good we had the surveillance video…Obviously, if you had more cameras there would be better odds of this being stopped before it happened.”
The Kletzky family continues to mourn the heinous death of their son who was killed last week in a Borough Park apartment.
The family initiated a frantic two-day search when young Leiby was reported missing.
The boy’s body was later found in the apartment of confessed killer 35-year-old Aron with parts of the body in the freezer. Other body parts were found stuffed in a suitcase a few miles away from the apartment.
