"I know where he is," Gonzalez said in Spanish, his voice calm and his gaze flat. "My son isn't alive. He's dead."
Asked why he did it, Gonzalez said that it just "happened."
"I didn't want to kill my son," he said. "I don't know what happened in that moment." He said he loved his son and is "regretful."
The extraordinary confession was met with skepticism by authorities, who have yet to find evidence in the apartment that would corroborate Gonzalez's account. The interview followed months of reticence on the part of Gonzalez, who refused to cooperate with investigators, barely spoke during brief court hearings on a child endangerment charge, and declined the tearful overtures from Giovanni's mother to please reveal the whereabouts of her only son.

Usually I prefer to hear the truth, but just this once, I can't help but think, "Damn, I hope he's Lying!"
