Pedro Hernandez is arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court via video link seen here in this courtroom sketch in New York May 25, 2012.

The man who recently confessed to killing 6-year-old Etan Patz more than 30 years ago shared “intimate details” of the killing with detectives, sources told the New York Post. According to the Post, the suspect’s inside knowledge of the case has convinced at least some New York City Police Department detectives that Pedro Hernandez, a bodega stockboy at the time of the killing, was involved. But the FBI reportedly remains skeptical about the credibility of Hernandez’s confession. “The bosses are very skeptical,” a source told reporters. “They don’t believe him. He’s got mental problems, and there’s no other evidence. They think we moved too fast.”
