    America's Unknown Child, a/k/a The Boy in the Box Myspace

    Hello all. I created a myspace page for "my boy" about a year ago. The response has been positive and at times, overwhelming. Please stop by and visit!

    Thanks!

    The Boy In The Box.

    If I may please put this here.I could not have a face book page for this little one. This board was made to help find the Identity of a little Unidentified boy they call (The Boy In The Box) He was found not alive. He was about 4 to 6 years old and found on February 25 1957 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.I put all the information I could find and will find on this board to do everything I can to help Identify this little one.Someone,somewhere knows who this little boy is. This makes me very sad. I promised this little one at his grave I would do everything I can and do my very best to find out who he is and give him his real name and I will. He deserved his name a long time ago. I also put a unidentified little girl (Baby Hope) found in 1991 in New York and other Unidentified Jane and John Does on here too to help try and Identify them also.This board is not really a discussion board. I set it up mainly for information purposes.It is being built up now. ALL EVIL NEEDS TO SUCCEED IS FOR GOOD PEOPLE TO DO NOTHING!!!!

    I saw this boy's story many years ago when I first got a computer and became interested in unsolved mysteries. It's heartbreaking that someone could just leave him like that. There are a few good theories as to where he may have come from. Personally I think we will find out who he is eventually through the growing use of DNA for genealogy and some good sleuthing. I should say, if there is a DNA sample from this child. I can't remember now if there was a sample taken. Hope so.

    Ms Suzanne I looked at your yuku page- you have certainly put a lot of work into it... bless you in your endeavor to seek a name for this poor child and seek justice for his untimely death. I was amazed at the number of tips that they have had, and none panned out. The investigators of the time appear to have put a good deal of time into the case. Just makes one wonder who is sitting out there some where responsible, or missing a loved one. Thank you for caring for the boy in the box. Much luck.

    Most everything on my board is from America's Unknown Child Website.There is other information from other places too on there on this board.I'm still building it up.This little boy in the box is very special to me.He is one of the first John and Jane Does I ever knew about.It bothers me very much and makes me very sad little ones like this are still unidentified.Someone does need to do a documentary or show on him.Like Unsolved Mysteries and other places.Maybe Nancy Grace can.It's also for little Baby Hope.She has her own special forum on there.

    Great website, very informative.

    This case has captured and haunted many in America, including me.

    I still have hope that something will be found, some new info., an I.D.

    I worry that those who knew anything may have died already.

    My suspicions are still with the Foster family.

    Thank You.I think if enough people help keep him bumped up and keep his picture and story out there this little boy in the box can be Identified.I hope and pray someone re investigates his case again.He deserves so much better than this.It bothers me this little child does not have his real name on his grave.It's wrong.

    A few people have come to the police claiming to be witnesses. Ten years ago, a woman told the police her parents were responsible for the boy’s death. She offered a detailed, consistent account, but there is no way to corroborate her facts.

    Hard evidence is still needed. It may come from the sample of DNA that was extracted from the boy’s remains in 2001. But a DNA match will only confirm a relationship between the boy and his parents or siblings. It can’t lead the police toward any suspects.
    I thought the above bold was so very odd. The woman in the first paragraph, why not check her DNA against the boy's? To get the corroboration they say they have no way of getting? And, to me, if you find the match on the DNA, you have found the people who are guilty! DNA will ONLY lead them to a relationship, not a suspect? Very odd.

    I don't know about guilty but they would be a heck of alot closer to the truth if they find the match/parents . It would give them a starting point although in a sence it's almost the perfect crime if it was them. All they would have to say was the boy was abducted in the middle of the night and there's no way do prove it or dis prove it. I can't believe i even have to ask this as it's beyond my comprehension to even think about but what would you be charged with if you didn't report your child taken. This case is kinda similar to CA in that way. If they don't report it common sense to me atleast says thier guilty but when its this many years later how do you prove it ?

    Thank you 88Keys. That's greatly apprecieated .You know it took me amonth and a half to simply get what you just gave me and if you ask me thats the exact reason this case is so cold and somewhat forgotten. No one seems to wanna read anything what does this thread have 5 posts 3 by myself. I really wish someone with all the darn crime shows that are on tv now adays The ID channel why can't they do a show on this young boy someone by that i mean the tv people need to do a show about this boy and an up to date to bring this the attention it deserves.

    I first started on WS for Mickey Shunick. I had known about this case for awhile, & had been haunted by its isolation. We have better DNA technology now, & if the Vidocq society can't come up w/ anything, an exhumation?? At least his DNA could be put into a national database. Are they sure of his age, or juvenile it be that b/c he was so malnourished he appeared younger? I have no clue if the pathology then could have established this?

    The psychic w/ the log cabin looked promising, so does the idea of a foster home. Abuse of children, whether bio family or foster, would not have been reported then? Not sure about the laws then, were MDs required to report?

    I agree, a haunting case. Why can't it be solved & that baby given a name? Even if who murdered/abused him is long dead? He deserves no less.

    thank you and blessings to ms suzanne!
    Iīm new here but I did already read about this little angel,I have questions, sorry
    I did miss reading it all because Iīm looking for my abducted(by strangers) little boy since 33 years now ,so I have no much time to read
    Iīve read he had at least 3 surgical scars ,became an infusion/transfusion and had been circumcised, IMO all these things have to be done in a hospital, right?
    Here we have a notebook for vaccination and consultation/check up and it is obligatory that the doc will vaccinate your kids as well and it is obligatory education at school
    Iīd like to know that kid has been only physical beaten or he also has been sexual abused?
    I know there is DNA from him, is there any other DNA,fingerprints,spittle, semen,etc?
    Do you know is there any records in the hospital,foster house, etc... about this child?
    it seems none knew this boy either any records ?
    sorry if asked before,(and for my english)

    I'll answer the best I can with what I know about this little one.They got only mtDNA on this little one.So only the mothers side can be checked.I'm wondering if they can still use his DNA to find out other things about him.Possible ancestry.Where he possible came from.,diseases,defects anything like that that can tell us more about him and they release that and more information on him.

    Early newspapers say there was no sexual assault on him.All the bruises on him were inflicted at the same time.No bruises were in different stages of healing.This shows me he was not beaten before or at least not on a regular basis.He was just malnourished as if someone could not take care of him.That's why I thought maybe the welfare DHS might have stepped in or something.I believe IMHO this little one changed care takers or someone new came to him that day or the day he died.I feel he died getting a hair cut.I believe it looks like with his hair cut,eye checked and hair cut that he possibly was put in an institution,foster home,childrens home or orphanage somewhere.Early newspaper articles said it took them only 2 or 3 days to rule them out.That is not enough time to check all those records.I feel they should all be looked at again.What can they lose.They might just find out who this precious little boys name is.It's very sad.

    They apparently checked the hospital for possible operations like that.I believe from 1953 to 1956.I think they should have checked earlier like in 1952 too.I'm wondering who he saw and what Dr checked his eye.He had to have just had that checked.The foster home people were ruled out .I feel maybe they focused on the wrong foster home.He had no vaccination mark.

    Maybe someone put him up for adoption and I hope and pray his family is looking for him.I'm starting to think maybe he and his family was an illegal immigrant and maybe that's why no one knew who he was and no one came forward.

    thank you for your reply! IMO if a child was missing/abducted or give in adoption, Someone should have made a police report, even a mother that gave him in adoption, I believe the case became famous on television and newspapers!
    so you mean they did not check if he was born in the hospital either? ! I do believe the 2 parents are already dead, maybe his dad/stepdad was not charged with murder, unfortunately, maybe with that mt DNA one could find the mother(files in the hospital,if he was not born at home)or siblings?! I do not believe he still have family (maybe except for bro or sis) or was adopted ! I do believe his mom met another man and that man did beat the child because he did something wrong and deserved punishment, so he did put the child in a box,drove with an old truck to that place and disposed the box there, it had to be dark, none saw him, of course the mother feared much that man or was involved?! I donīt either believe they were illegals because if they were, wouldnīt any parent buried their son? I do not mean in a cemetery, and that person doing that was not even feeling even close to the child,maybe the momīs boyfriend?! what I wonder is any other child or woman have been so beaten/died because that man and was registered somewhere?! that person was cold, mean and normally repeat offender!
    what do you mean by checking his eye?

    First I would like to say I pray you find Dirk.The answers are out there.You will find him.I'm so sorry that happened.


    They did check if he was born in the hospital and checked with his footprints for a match.From America's unknown website it says When an ultraviolet light was shone on the boy's left eye it fluoresced a brilliant blue, suggesting that a special diagnostic dye had been applied, possibly to treat a chronic eye ailment.

    Please help find out who this little one is.It's so sad.He really deserves so much better than this.Please help give him his real name.Can someone please re investigate his case again..I bet his killer or killers have their real names on their grave.This little one deserves his real name on his grave too with respect.
