The father of slain Brooklyn boy Leiby Kletzky is reportedly suing his confessed killer for a whopping $100 million.
Kletzky’s father filed the suit against Levi Aron, 35, who told cops he killed the boy after snatching him off the streets of Boro Park, the New York Daily News reported.
The civil suit filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court also named Aron’s family, who it says should have prevented him from slaying the boy in his attic apartment.
“Obviously, the acts are horrific and horrendous and the level of damages should reflect what those acts were,” the Kletzkys’ lawyer, Mark Goldsmith, told the paper. “This is as horrific an event as a family can go through.”
Leiby Kletzky was walking home from camp for the first time when he got lost and asked Aron for directions. Cops say Aron took him home and later drugged and suffocated him.
The dismembered boy’s body parts were found in Aron’s refrigerator and a nearby trash bin.
Aron, who told cops he panicked when he saw a massive search in the neighborhood, faces murder charges. His lawyers say he hear voices and suggested he may be insane.
