The Boy in the Box: The Unsolved Case of America's Unknown Child By David Stout

$16.95 $13.25


On February 25, 1957, the nude, badly bruised body of a young boy was found in a cardboard box in trash-strewn woods of north Philadelphia. Posters of the "Boy in the Box" soon dotted the city and police stations nationwide—to no avail. In November 1998 the remains were exhumed for DNA analysis, and the boy was reburied as "America's Unknown Child."

This is a  riveting true account of the infamous child-murder mystery that has gripped Philadelphia and all of America for more than 50 years.
