On February 25 of 1957, on Susquehanna Road in Philadelphia, the nude, badly beaten body of a small boy, aged 4-6, was found covered with a child’s blanket and stuffed in a cardboard furniture box. His body had several scars, three of which were believed to be surgical, and he appeared undernourished. Found in or near the dump site was a man’s blue corduroy cap, a white handkerchief with the initial “G”, a tan child’s scarf, child’s size four yellow flannel shirt, and a pair of black children’s shoes that were far too large for the boy. He was given a funeral and laid to rest in July of the same year. He has been dubbed by the media as “The Boy in the Box,” or “America’s Unknown Child.” There have never been any concrete leads in his case and it remains unsolved.
