Emeterio Hernandez, Pedro’s brother, says Rosemary “cares about him” but knew nothing of what happened 33 years ago. Their marriage “has been over since she found this out’’when police took him from their Maple Shade home last week for questioning in the case.
Pedro, 51, and Emeterio, 60, are two of 12 siblings, and Emeterio’s wife, Gloria, is sisters with Pedro’s second, current wife, Rosemary. “They met at our wedding,” Emeterio said.
Emeterio says he will step up and become a “father figure” for Pedro’s college age daugher Becky.
“She wants to be a teacher, I’ll help her with school. I’ll walk her down the aisle,” he said.
Emeterio said he hasn’t spoken to his brother in years but knew he had mental problems. But “if he is guilty, he should be held responsible,” he said.
DETAILS OF A MURDER
Meanwhile, details about the murder are leaking out. The Post reports that Pedro put Etan’s body in the bodga’s basement walk-in refrigerator before putting it out with the garbage.
