Etan Patz’ murder suspect’s sister says she told police in the 1980s that her brother had killed a boy, according to Good Morning America.

Norma Hernandez, 53, said that she was informed by family members that her brother had confessed to abducting and killing Etan to a prayer group at St. Anthony of Padua, a Roman Catholic Church in Camden, N.J., according to The Wall Street Journal. The suspect’s sister said that other family members were present at the time of his alleged confession and that she informed Camden police after they told her about it.

It is still unclear what the Camden police did with the information that she said she gave them. The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office told the Wall Street Journal Monday that the office wouldn’t discuss the case.

“I just feel angry that people who heard the confession didn’t do anything,” Norma Hernandez told the newspaper.
