Any Connection Between The Leiby Kletzky Murder & The Four Alarm Fire Of The Jewish Orthodox Synagogue - Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, On The Night Of Monday, July, 11th 2011?
Anyone question the relation between the two events? A murder & a fire on the same night? Something horrible happen on the night of July 11th. According to Aron's confession to the police, he took advantage of the situation & kidnapped a boy & later tortured and dismembered the boy on the night of July 11th. Where did this horrible crime of torture take place? Did it take place in Mr. Aron's residence or somewhere else? Would it be easier to commit the crime in a location far removed from neighbors and other witnesses? Top floor of an abandon Synagogue is a perfect place to commit such a horrible deed. Were there more persons involved in this killing? Did the police account for all of the blood shed by Leiby Kletzky?

Fire Devastates Synagogue Under Repair in Manhattan

A four-alarm fire broke out Monday night at an Upper East Side synagogue that was being renovated, spitting flames through stained-glass windows, destroying the roof and heavily damaging the upper floors, the Fire Department said.
No one was badly injured in the blaze, which obscured the sky over much of the neighborhood with smoke. Four firefighters received minor injuries battling the blaze, which fire officials said apparently began on the roof. The cause was not known.
Hundreds of people crowded around Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, a modern Orthodox synagogue on 85th Street near Lexington Avenue, after the fire began about 8:30 p.m.
About 170 firefighters fought the blaze, which took about an hour to bring under control.
Onlookers gaped and snapped pictures with cellphone cameras as flames shot up from the roof.
“It went up like that,” said Stephen L. Ruzow, chairman of the FDNY Foundation and a member of the synagogue, who saw the flames engulf the roof. “Flames were 40 feet in the air, and there were large clouds of thick black smoke.” More

The case transfixed New York, devastated the Orthodox community of Borough Park, Brooklyn, and prompted parents to wonder about how lenient they should be in letting their children walk the streets alone. More
