According to published reports Thursday, police have received more information linking the prime suspect in the 22-year-old disappearance of Etan Patz to the crime.
The Daily News reports Thursday that police are zeroing in on convicted child molester Jose Ramos in connection with the boy's disappearance in 1979. Patz was officially declared dead Monday.
The News says witnesses have told detectives they saw Ramos with a blond haired boy who looked like Patz the day he vanished. The six-year-old was last seen walking to his school bus just blocks from his SoHo apartment.
The witnesses were reportedly never interviewed by detectives originally working the case.
The News says Manhattan prosecutors will now review this evidence to see if it is enough to bring the case before a grand jury.
Patz's parents are planning to move ahead with a wrongful death suit against Ramos, who is serving 20 years in a Pennsylvania prison on an unrelated sex abuse charge.
