In 1988, 4-year-old Barbara Jean Horn was abducted from her home in Northeast Philadelphia and killed. Her body was found shortly afterward, stuffed into a cardboard box around the corner from her house.
Her murder devastated her parents and terrified a generation of Philadelphia kids, who had been used to playing in front yards.
More than 30 years later, her killer still hasn't been brought to justice.
But her family has never stopped seeking it.

We're trying to get to the bottom of one of Philadelphia's most notorious cold cases.
