“A new age-progression drawing of a baby stolen from a Chicago hospital 49 years ago could provide important clues in a mystery that has produced both hope and heartache for the family of the infant, named Paul Fronczak at birth.
The baby was taken from the arms of his mother, Dora Fronczak. He was stolen by a woman posing as a nurse at Chicago’s Michael Reese hospital in 1964.
The case had been considered closed by the FBI until two months ago when DNA tests revealed a child discovered by police in New Jersey in 1965 and raised by Chester and Dora Fronczak as Paul was not, in fact, the stolen child. The FBI has now re-opened its investigation into the kidnapping.
