Levi Aron kept Kletzky' feet, which were later found inside a freezer in the home where Tzvi Aron's body was just reportedly found.

The brother of a man who kidnapped and dismembered a lost 8-year-old boy has been found dead in the same Brooklyn home where detectives uncovered the gruesome remains of the boy almost six years ago. He was found in a basement closet at a home in Kensington - the apartment where little Leiby was suffocated six years earlier.

Levi Aron pleaded guilty in August 2012 to kidnapping, killing and dismembering Leiby near his home in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn in July 2011. The body has now been removed from the home and transported to the medical examiner's office.

The discovery has opened old wounds for New York's Hasidic community, which was rocked by Leiby's kidnapping and gruesome killing. Tzvi lived in the basement apartment; Levi had lived on the top floor. The rest of his body was wrapped in a trash bag and stuffed into a red suitcase, which was left in an auto fix shop dumpster about two miles away, authorities said. The examination report also noted Aron's sister died while undergoing treatment at a psychiatric institution for schizophrenia.

Over the years they've received dozens of death threats after the horrifying killing. On Friday, police once again cordoned off the home as a crime scene. "People who know us know we're a good family", Tzvi Aron told reporters.

His body was apparently discovered by another brother around 2:45 p.m.; a neighbor told the News, "He ran out of the house screaming, 'my brother, my brother.' It was spooky".
