Tonight JennyNJerry Boone, Founders of the MissingNMurdered group and I will be talking about this almost 56-year-old case that has been known as the "Boy in the Box". He is also sometimes called "America's Unknown Child".
The "Boy in the Box is an unidentified murder victim approximately 4 to 6 years old. His naked and battered body was found in a cardboard box in the Fox Chase section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on February 25, 1957.
The boy's body, wrapped in a plaid blanket, was inside a cardboard box that once contained a baby's bassinet from J.C. Penney. The body was first found by a young man checking his muskrat traps. Fearing that the police would confiscate his traps, he did not report the matter. A few days later, a college student spotted a rabbit running into the underbrush. Knowing there were animal traps in the area, he stopped his car to investigate and discovered the body. He too was reluctant to have any contact with the police, but did report his find the following day.
The case attracted massive media attention in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley, with pictures of the boy even being placed in every gas bill in Philadelphia. However, despite the huge publicity at the time and sporadic re-interest throughout the years, the case remains unsolved to this day, and the boy's identity is still unknown.
The story has been profiled on the television series America's Most Wanted. The television series Cold Case, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Law & Order: SVU have all used fictionalized accounts of the story as the basis for episodes.

For the Record will be a series of shows dedicated to the Muskrat Falls debate. The idea here is to allow an hour of virtually uninterrupted time for critics of the deal or process of sanction to explain what their specific concerns are and what they feel might be a reasonable approach to this development or for energy development generally.
First Guest is Danny Dumaresque former MHA and Director of Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro. Longtime businessperson in Newfoundland and Labrador.
This week we are pleased to host guest Roger Grimes - former Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Roger will bring an interesting perspective to the program as one of a small group of people ever to have served as Premier.
Further his government finalized the successful Voisey's Bay project - arguably the best industrial deal the province has ever made.
We will talk about the proposed Muskrat deal, the process of sanction, House of Assembly debate, and past proposals for development of the Lower Churchill.
At just 23 years old Brad was at one time the youngest mayor in Canada serving a community in Saskatchewan. This I suppose was where his political journey began.
Brad is a graduate of Political Science and has served in Canada's armed forces as an Infantry Captain.
Of late Brad has been very active in the politics of Newfoundland and Labrador and very vocal regarding his concerns of the proposed Muskrat Falls deal.
As a critic of the deal - Brad has spent significant time researching the background of Churchill Falls both upper and lower as well as reviewing the material produced by Nalcor, the Government of NL, and outside agencies or companies employed to review the proposed project on behalf of the parties noted above.
This program will allow the listeners to get a good overview of Brad's concerns and findings. The show is 90 minutes and provides more time than traditional media for the guest to explain and communicate to the listener.
For the Record is a special series of the Talk with Sue program created to allow critics of the proposed Muskrat Falls deal to discuss their concerns with us.
The government and corporate interests can outspend any critic of the deal and in the case of government - they use the people's money. The Premier, CEO Nalcor, and business spokespeople whose companies have opportunity to directly benefit have complete access to media and advertising while people or groups who oppose or are not satisfied with the sanctioning process may be unable to match the dollars being spent by government and business to promote the project.
Please take the time to listen to our chat with Brad and also the archived programs with Danny Dumaresque, Roger Grimes, and Bruno Marcocchio. The more information one has the better able one is to make a decision.

This week we will be joined by Bruno Marcocchio who has been an active and outspoken critic of the Muskrat Falls proposed deal and its process of sanction. Many of you have heard him on talk shows and in the media express those concerns. This show allows Bruno to explain in greater detail what he believes the issues are and what alternatives there may be. As always - the more information we have the better the choices we make.
Who is Bruno?
Bruno Marcocchio has been involved with the Sierra Club Canada since 2002. He has worked on a number of campaigns including the clean-up of the Sydney tar ponds, stopping seismic testing in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Deep Panuke offshore gas project, the successful campaign to stop the Digby mega-quarry, the now stalled Irving St. John refinery and a number of other campaigns.
Bruno has been a member of the national Environmental Assessment caucus since 1990 when he, and current Sierra Club Canada Executive Director John Bennett, led a spirited community campaign to oppose the construction of the Point Aconi coal fired power plant.

Bob joined fellow Al-Anons Ken P. and Scott B. and together they wrote a book titled “We Codependent Men, We Mute Coyotes”.
