The Boy In The Box Is One Of Pennsylvania’s Greatest Mysteries

Just a little over 60 years ago – on February 25, 1957, to be exact – the first chapter in a tragic mystery, that has haunted police investigators and Pennsylvanians for six decades, began. On that cold February day, the lifeless, nude body of a young boy, partially hidden in a cardboard box, was discovered in the Fox Chase neighborhood of Philadelphia. From that day on, the Boy in the Box also became known as and still remains America’s Unknown Child.
