Thousands attended the funeral of 8-year-old Leibby Kletzky in Brooklyn on Wednesday. The haredi child, who had been missing since Monday, was found dead earlier in the day.

"Here lies my child. Purity of heart. Very quiet and very respectful. Satisfied and never demanding. My child is gone. I'm in very deep sorrow," The New York Post quoted the boy's father, Nachman Kletzky as saying at the proceedings.

Police arrested and charged Levi Aron with murder of Kletzky earlier on Wednesday.
