Pa. inmate he's tired of being linked to Patz

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A sex offender jailed in northeastern Pennsylvania says he's tired of being linked to the 1979 disappearance of a New York City boy whose case helped mobilize a nationwide missing-children movement.

Jose Ramos was for years the prime suspect in the disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz (AY'-tahn PAYTS'). Another man, Pedro Hernandez, has since been charged in Patz's death and faces trial, but a civil court once held Ramos responsible. He denies involvement.

Ramos has sent a letter to The Citizens' Voice newspaper in Wilkes-Barre (http://bit.ly/1dFDMsi ) to complain about media coverage linking him to Patz, his attorneys and the Luzerne County court system.

He calls himself an "ex-sex offender and not a sex offender."

Ramos completed a 27-year sentence last year on molestation charges. He's jailed on Megan's Law charges.
