Paul Joseph Fronczak joins us in the studio, along with his daughter Emma, to talk about his book "The Foundling". Paul chronicles his journey from a baby kidnapped from a Chicago hospital in 1964 to an abandoned boy police found two years later outside a variety store in New Jersey. The story made national headlines when it was determined the child was the missing baby. Eventually, Paul (at the time named Scott) was returned to the Fronczak's and raised as their own. Then, in 2012, out of curiosity, a DNA test was conducted and the analysis proved otherwise. From there, Paul set out on a quest to find his true identity only to discover a haunting past. This is where everything gets turned upside down and the story takes a dark twist. Paul (Jack) is still on a journey to find the real Paul Joseph Fronczak and his twin sister Jill.
