A man was convicted Tuesday in the death of Etan Patz, who went missing at the age of 6 in 1979.
Pedro Hernandez was found guilty of murder. A previous jury was deadlocked in 2015 after more than two weeks of deliberation.
The case led to fundamental changes in law enforcement and parenting. Patz was the first missing child to be featured on milk cartons, and the day of his disappearance was designated National Missing Children's Day by then-President Reagan.
Hernandez was a convenience store clerk in Patz's neighborhood. He confessed to the murder, but his lawyers said he was mentally ill and his confession was not valid.
