Late February, in 1957, a young man was checking his traps in the wooded area along Susquehana Road, Fox Chase, Philadelphia. During his routine he stumbled upon a box. Looking inside the box, he found a body.
He did not report the body, as he feared the police would take away his traps. Instead, he left the area.
A few days later, on February 24th, another young man headed into the wooded area. He had spotted a rabbit entering the underbrush, and knowing that there were traps in the area he decided to investigate.
It did not take him too long to find the box containing the body. He too, was set on not contacting the police, but the following day he changed his mind.
Investigators arrived on the scene. The box was positioned in thick underbrush, a popular dumping ground for rubbish, and had the body not been discovered at that time, it may have gone unfound for weeks, if not months.
