Pedro Hernandez, the man arrested and charged with the murder of Etan Patz, was taken to Bellevue Hospital this morning and placed on suicide watch. Hernandez, who has cancer, had been in police custody just over 24 hours when he told authorities he had gone off his anti-depressant medication and was thinking about killing himself. He was taken to Bellevue at 5:30am this morning.
It's likely that this will delay Hernandez's arraignment until this afternoon.
