In February 1957, a college student found a little boy's body inside a cardboard box in a field in Philadelphia. The find shocked and caused fear in residents. And, despite a very extensive and long investigation, the boy's identity and the circumstances surrounding his death remain unsolved.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this boy that is most commonly referred to as the boy in the box. We'll detail out the exhaustive investigation into the boy's death and identity. The condition of the boy suggested that his life was brutal and most likely abusive. A number of individuals were investigated, many of whom proved to be quite monstrous in their actions with their own children.
