What happened to the boy in the box? The mysterious death of the boy in the box remains an Unsolved Mystery. The cold case of the boy in the box has been chilling and creepy since the 1950’s in Philadelphia. The boy is still nameless, (John Doe) and clues seem to be few and far between. Many q + a have led nowhere. Tons of disturbing theories exist. Watch my experimental psychic tarot reading to see if we can maybe find some clues as to what really went on that fateful day.
