    FBI reopens case of Chicago infant kidnapped in 1964
    August 2013


    The FBI has reopened its investigation into the kidnapping of a newborn from a Chicago hospital almost half a century ago.

    The boy, named Paul Joseph Fronczak, was snatched from the former Michael Reese Hospital in 1964 by a woman posing as a nurse.

    Fourteen months later, a toddler abandoned in Newark, N.J., who resembled the missing child was returned to Fronczak's parents after an investigation by the FBI.

    But earlier this year, lab tests of DNA swabs from Fronczak's parents determined that he was not the infant taken from Michael Reese.


    50 years later, Paul Fronczak searches for the baby stolen from his parents
    April 2014

    Over the weekend, Paul Fronczak turned 50 years old. The problem: No one knows who the real Paul Fronczak is.

    With the help of a DNA test, Paul Fronczak discovered last year that he's not the baby who was taken from a Chicago hospital and later returned to his parents. Now, the Nevada actor is trying to solve a 50-year-old mystery and find his parents' biological child.

    "Paul is out there, and I have his birth certificate," he told ABC News. "And I want to give it to him. And then I want to find mine."

    The little boy who was raised as Paul did finally find his true identity in July 2015!

    Fronczak knows his family name and he knows where and when he was born.

    Public records confirmed that Paul's name at birth was Jack. He was one of five children. His parents are both deceased. Two siblings are still alive. But here's the real shocker.

    “I also found out I have a twin sister. My name is Jack. My twin sister's name is Jill. She's missing” Fronczak said.

    Greetings to All!

    Today is Paul's birthday... It has now been four years since I have started this journey! We have uncovered so many answers to these mysteries, yet by doing so, we have unearthed so many new mysteries. I now know who I am, but I am also learning how I became me! What started as a double mystery, has become a triple mystery! I still have two mysteries to solve... What happened to my twin sister, Jill... and more importantly, what happened to Paul! We are currently running down several leads and I believe we will have answers this year! This will be the year that we find out what happened. Happy Birthday Paul! I have not given up... nor will I ever until we have answers. I encourage all of you out there, who have any questions or doubts regarding your beginnings... start digging. We are, the way we are from birth. If you embark on this journey, you may find answers to all that has been haunting you for as long as you can remember!
    Thank you all for following my story... please stay tuned... This isn't over.... Sincerely, Paul/Scott/Jack

    So where is Jill? I hope he finds his twin sister.

    I'm hoping the woman posed as a nurse to take the baby b/c she couldn't have one of her own and wanted to CARE for the child as if she was it's mother. Don't get me wrong, the person is evil for stealing someone else's child - but in many of these cases the women who posed as nurses at hospitals to steal babies were crazy yet didn't mean harm toward the child. Still, where on earth is he and is he ok??? :(

    Paul has a website now and wrote a book about his story.
    He's also got a blog on the website that's pretty interesting.


    Ever since I was a child I had a feeling I was someone else. Then, when I was 10, I found three boxes in my family's basement that changed everything. I learned about a infamous kidnapping in 1964 that remains unsolved to this day. I learned I was abandoned on a street corner when I was two years old. I learned I wasn't Paul Fronczak after all. "The Foundling" is about how I solved a 50-year-old mystery—and uncovered a dark family secret, a shocking new mystery and an astonishing truth about who I really am.

    I was kept in a cage as a baby, given to the wrong family and am now desperately searching for my missing sister

    WEARING a nurse's uniform as a disguise, the woman crept into the maternity ward and snatched one-day-old baby Paul from his cradle.

    The abduction, from a Chicago hospital, sparked a manhunt which captivated America, but it took two years before the FBI could finally call the baby's distraught parents with the news they had been praying for.

    An abandoned toddler had been found in a shopping centre in New Jersey, and investigators had a hunch it could be the same child who was taken by a still-unidentified kidnapper two years previously, in 1964.

    With no record of Paul's blood type or fingerprints, it was hard to prove the baby really was him, but facial similarities with the lost baby were enough proof to hand him over to the relieved parents, Dora and Chester Fronczak.

    The Fronczaks said that the toddler's ear was the same shape as baby Paul's - based on the one photo they had of him, taken on the day of his birth - and so they took him in and tried to move on from the abduction.

    It looked like the saga was over... but it was only just beginning.

    The private investigator assigned to his case believes he may have tracked down the bodies of a possible Jill and a possible biological Paul, and he is planning on exhuming them to find the truth.

    "Our best lead regarding the real Paul Fronczak involves someone who unfortunately passed away many years ago in Texas," Paul says.

    "We also have new leads that come in every week, and we're just going to keep tracking them down until we find the real Paul. We are also running down some serious tips on Jill."

    Until the search is over, he's keeping the name Paul, but he hopes that one day he can hand over Paul's birth certificate and live out the rest of his life as Jack Rosenthal - the man he really is.
