2006_03_sydneyhatchett.jpgThe body of a 14 year old boy was found by the NYPD yesterday afternoon in the East River, capping a two day search in the water. Sidney Hatchett had apparently jumped into the East River Friday morning (which was very frigid) while walking to school with his sister. His 6 year old sister said that Hatchett took off his coat and told her good-bye near the Manhattan Bridge from South Street.

His mother did tell the police that Hatchett had been depressed, and others said he had been teased by other children at his apartment complex.
