Newly-born Paul Fronczak was abducted by a woman posing as a nurse in 1964. The abduction occurred in a maternity ward at Chicago’s Michael Reese Hospital where he was born. The police launched a nationwide manhunt; FBI Agents examined 10,000 babies and interviewed 30,000 witnesses. More than a year later, a 1 year-old boy was found abandoned outside a store in Newark, New Jersey. Child welfare officers placed him in a local orphanage. FBI agents were alerted, and examined the boy’s skin, bones, blood and ears. They decided that the boy’s ears matched those of the missing Fronczak baby, and that he probably was Paul Fronczak. Of course, DNA testing had not yet been invented at the time.
A few days later, Dora Fronczak took one look at the child and said, “That’s my baby.” He was then reunited with his "parents."
There is but one problem: as he grew up, the child did not resemble his Polish and Croatian parents. He seemed to have inherited none of his parents' physical characteristics. Paul, now aged 49 and married with a daughter of his own, recently purchased DNA kits for himself and for both of his parents who agreed to take the tests.
The results confirmed what Paul had already suspected: there is no possibility that he is the biological son of the couple that raised him.
