America’s Unknown Child: The Boy in the Box

The badly beaten body of this murder victim, 4-6 years old, was found naked, wrapped in a worn blanket that had a green, white and rusty red block and diamond pattern, stuffed into a cardboard box that had once held a white bassinet purchased at JC Penney. He was dumped in a garbage-filled area on Susquehanna Road in Philadelphia in February 1957, and remains unidentified.
