Girl In The Iron Box: How An Arizona Kidnapping Stumped Hoover’s FBI

At 3 o’clock in the afternoon of April 25, 1934, six-year-old June Robles stepped inside a Ford sedan on her way home from school and disappeared from the streets of Tucson, Arizona. June Robles' disappearance was the most notorious child abduction of the 1930s, setting in motion a massive manhunt in Tucson and around the country. It was the first major case that ambitious FBI director J. Edgar Hoover's agents could not solve.

David Turpie, vice president of exhibitions and publications with the Arizona Historical Society, presents a chilling synopsis of the award winning book, "The Girl in the Iron Box" by author Paul Cool.

Books are available for purchase at Arizona Historical Society Museum Stores: Pioneer Museum (Flagstaff), Arizona Heritage Center (Phoenix/Tempe), and Arizona History Museum (Tucson).
