In February of 1957, a box was found in a field outside of Philadelphia, PA that contained the body of an unknown child. This discovery started an investigation that extends to today to try to figure out who this boy was and how he died. Also known as "America's Unknown Child", this story has been profiled extensively on television and has kept investigators as well as amateur sleuths trying to solve it for more than 60 years.
Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss the details of this case including the facts that are known around the discovery of this unknown child. There are a number of theories that have been developed over the years that will be discussed in detail as well. Some of these theories have been proven to be false, some are outlandish, but a few are quite plausible. This is a case that tugs at the heartstrings of many people and has for so many years. People from all over remain so attached to this case that they boy's grave site is constantly kept full of flowers and stuffed animals. "The Boy In The Box" as he has become known has never been forgotten.
