Three Boys Missing: The Tragedy that Exposed the Pedophilia Underworld
On October 16, 1955, Robert Peterson and Anton and John Schuessler left home to see a Disney movie. Two days later their bodies were found in a forest preserve. This true crime story, written by one of the original detectives on the case, details the police investigation of this triple child murder that spanned 40 years. Never presented before, this firsthand account honestly discusses the successes and failures of the various law enforcement agencies involved with the investigation; describes the intense media attention and public reaction to the crime; and openly addresses the pain and loss experienced by the parents of all three boys. Though heartbreaking, the knowledge the story imparts is important as a historical reference as well as a statement about our shortcomings as a society.

Great Book. It really takes you inside the investigation and gives a glimpse into what these families and the city was experiencing at that time.

I was nto familiar with this case at all but happened to come upon information on it online. When I saw this book I had to read it to know more about these 3 young boys. Three Boys Missing is an insightful, powerful, raw look into a case that will pull at the heart strings to all who read it.
