The boy in the box

Boxboy

In 1957, an unidentified Caucasian male, probable age 4 to 6 years, whose nude body, wrapped in a cheap flannel blanket, was found lying face up inside a large cardboard carton just a few feet from the edge of Susquehanna Road in Northeast Philadelphia. The body was dry and clean. The boy’s arms were carefully folded across his stomach. The finger and toenails had been recently trimmed short and neat. His hair had been cut recently – very close to the head, in a crude, hurried way, perhaps as a deliberate attempt to conceal the child’s identity. Small clumps of cut hair clung to his entire body, suggesting that someone had groomed him while he was unclothed, probably either shortly before or immediately after death. There were many bruises all over the child’s body; particularly on the head and face. All of the bruises appeared to have been inflicted at the same time. Despite recent DNA investigations in to the crime, it remains unsolved.

The Axe man of New Orleans

1196750-French Quarter New Orleans-New Orleans

On May 23, 1918, an Italian grocer named Joseph Maggio and his wife were butchered while sleeping in their apartment above the Maggio grocery store. Upon investigation, the police discovered that a panel in the rear door had been chiseled out, providing a way in for the killer. The murder weapon, an axe, was found in the apartment, still coated with the Maggio’s blood. Nothing in the house had been stolen, including jewelry and money that were nearly in plain sight. The only clue that was discovered was a message that had been written in chalk near the victim’s home. It read: “Mrs. Joseph Maggio will sit up tonight. Just write Mrs. Toney”. Almost exactly a month after the Maggio murder came a second crime. Louis Bossumer, a grocer who lived behind his store with his common-law wife, Annie Harriet Lowe, was discovered by neighbors one morning, lying in a pool of blood. The Axeman murdered a total of eight people before the killings stopped. There was no evidence to link the only suspect, Joseph Mumfre, to the crimes.

Jack the Ripper

Jacktheripper3-1

Traditionally, Jack the Ripper is considered to have killed five women, all London prostitutes, during 1888. The Ripper generally killed by strangling his victims, then laying them down and cutting the arteries in their throats; this was followed by a varied process of mutilation, during which parts of the body were removed and kept. During the autumn and winter of 1888/89 a number of letters circulated among the police and newspapers, all claiming to be from the Whitechapel murderer; these include the ‘From Hell’ letter and one accompanied by part of a kidney. Ripperologists consider most, if not all, of the letters to be hoaxes. Over a century later Jack’s identity has never been wholly proven (there isn’t even a leading suspect), most aspects of the case are still debated and the Ripper is an infamous cultural bogeyman.

Jack the Stripper

Hammersmith-Bridge

Jack the Stripper was the nickname given to an unknown serial killer responsible for what came to be known as the London “nude murders” between 1964 and 1965. His victimology was similar to Jack the Ripper’s. He murdered six — possibly eight — prostitutes, whose nude bodies were discovered around London or dumped in the River Thames. The victim count is ambiguous because two of the murders attributed to him did not fit his modus operandi. Like the Jack the Ripper killings, the Stripper’s reign of terror seemed to cease on its own, and there were few solid clues for police to investigate. Though his identity remains unknown, crime writer Donald Rumbelow notes that the killer could have been a young man who committed suicide in south London. This main suspect, who was also a favorite suspect of Chief Superintendent Du Rose, was a security guard on the Heron Trading Estate in Acton whose rounds included a paint shop where one of the bodies was thought to have been hidden after the crime. Though there was never any hard evidence to link him to the crimes, his family found his suicide inexplicable, and his suicide note cryptically said only that he was “unable to take the strain any longer”.

Black Dahlia

Short

Elizabeth Short (born 29 July 1924) was a 22-year-old American woman who was the victim of a gruesome and much-publicized murder. Nicknamed the Black Dahlia, Short was found cut in half and severely mutilated on 15 January 1947 in Leimert Park, Los Angeles. The murder, which has remained unsolved, has been the source of widespread speculation as well as several books and film adaptations. Sensational and sometimes inaccurate press coverage, as well as the horrible nature of the crime, focused intense public attention on the case. About 60 people confessed to the murder, mostly men, as well as a few women. As the case continues to command public attention, many more people have been proposed as Short’s killer, much like London’s Jack the Ripper murders of 1888.

Composite sketch of suspect who is wanted for trying to lure children with candy.

Latest update: 10/16/12 -Arvada, CO — According to NBCNews, Arvada Police are now FINALLY turning their attention to this suspect who is wanted for a seperate case of (attempted) abduction:

Updated: 10/16/12 – According to NBCNews, Arvada Police are now finally turning their attention to this unidentified male. They would like to interview/question him in the wake of Jessica Ridgeway’s abduction and murder and would like the public’s assistance in identifying him:

Police in Arvada, Colo., are looking for a man suspected of trying to abduct two children a few weeks before 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway’s killingto see whether there is a possible connection.

In two reported incidents on Sept. 9 and Sept. 12, Arvada police said an 8- and 9-year-old were nearly abducted, according to police.

“Both of them said they were offered candy to get into the vehicle. In both incidences, they knew to run and tell an adult,” Arvada police spokeswoman Jill McGranahan told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV.

Jessica’s body was found Oct. 10 in an Arvada park,  seven miles from her home in Westminster, Colo.

Meanwhile, police in Cody, Wyo., announced that a man suspected in a child abduction case was arrested Sunday in Belgrade, Mont. Authorities in the Ridgeway case do not believe there is a connection.

With no major breaks in the case, residents in and around Jessica’s hometown are on edge. A report that a man in a car tried to kidnap a 13-year-old boy in Jefferson County, Colo., this weekend turned out to be false.

The teen believed a man was trying to lure him into his parked car, so he ran inside his home and alerted his mother, who managed to snap a photo of the suspect in his blue sedan.

When the picture was circulated by police, the 18-year-old man in the car turned himself in and explained that he had been trying to get the boy to knock on the door of his ex-girlfriend’s home to get her attention, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Mark Techmeyer told KMGH.

A mug shot of the driver was taken, but he was released after police determined he was not a threat to the community.

“I think everyone reacted just the way they should have, in the light of everything that is going on,” Techmeyer said.

With so few clues, authorities have asked the public for help, urging them to be on the lookout for anyone showing behavioral changes.

“Child abduction, first of all, is an outrageous crime,” ABC News FBI consultant Brad Garrett said. “But then when the perpetrator actually kills a child, that is so above the pale, you’re going to get people maybe to come forward that wouldn’t normally.”

FBI profilers believe the suspect that they are hunting is likely male and might have recently missed work or suddenly left town. He might have changed his appearance or gotten rid of his car, profilers said.

“The sicko is out here, still,” Westminster resident Shanna Pearsy said. “Who knows where he is at but we need to find him.”

Jessica had been last seen Oct. 5, when she left for school. The fifth-grader never showed up at a nearby park where she was supposed to meet friends for the one-mile walk to her elementary school.

After an extensive search of the area, including knocking on doors and FBI road blocks, Jessica’s dismembered body was found Wednesday in an Arvada park, miles from where she was abducted.

“It’s hard to imagine why someone would want to do this to such a nice little girl,” Seth Snyder said Saturday at a memorial for Jessica.

UPDATE: Could the suspect in this case be connected to the October 5th, 2012 disappearance of Jessica Ridgeway? Both cases happened the same week of October. Jessica went missing in the area of Jefferson County, Arvada, Colorado. Jessica disappeared while walking to school on Friday, 10/05/12 and police issued an amber alert later that day and less than 48 hours later, Jessica’s back-pack and water-bottle were found in a in a neighboring town of Superior.

Published: October 8th, 2012, Denver, CO — Arvada Police are trying to locate a suspect in an attempted child abduction case. The man has approached children near Warder Elementary School and Fitzmorris Elementary School twice this week. In both cases, the unidentified adult male has offered candy to children, then tried luring them into his vehicle.

The first victim described the man as having a thin build and mustache, while the second victim described the man as having no facial hair. Police and witnesses are certain it’s the same man and he most likely shaved his facial hair after growing it to disguise himself.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male with light blond/brown hair and around 5’9” tall with a thin build. Police say he is between the ages of – Late teens to early thirties.

The biggest clue is the suspect’s vehicle which is described as a mid 1990’s era royal blue, four-door sedan with dents on the passenger side rear door. It may also have half of the rear wheels covered with a “skirt” similar to those seen on a  1996 Cadillac Deville.

Jefferson County Public Schools sent a letter home with all Arvada students on Thursday, (10/04/12) to alert parents and to remind them of the importance of talking with their child about ”stranger danger” and what to do if a stranger tried taking them against their will. It letter also talks about telling children to be aware of their surroundings.

Anyone with any information regarding both cases, please contact: Arvada Police Department 8101 Ralston Rd P.O. Box 8101  Arvada, CO 80001-8101 Nonemergency Phone: 720-898-6900 Administration Phone: 720-898-6660
