I did find it encouraging that the showed another solved unknown case on the site. I always like the closure of those.

Have you read the case files? As there is similarities in the Ohio informant, and the Unidentified motorists story, apart from him seeing a boy with the woman when it was a girl, but he might not have seen properly, but the stories are so similar I think the Motorist may have seen something there.

To me it sounds as if someone had gotten fed up with him, perhaps from having to care for him. Perhaps they even neglected him, and cleaned him up just so it wouldn't look bad if the body was found.
This may have even been a chronically ill foster child. The One of his foster parents could have accidentally killed him, then put him in a box, and told the state that he ran away. Perhaps they were even due a state visit near the time of the boys death..and he was cleaned up for the visit and the child threatened to tell on them for mis-treating him.
It would explain why no one claimed him.

The foster care system wasn't set up until well into the 70s... so in the period this boy was found, he would more likely have been a) cared for at home b ) cared for by relatives, or c) in an orphanage.
The severity of his injuries scream "step parent"or "parent's S.O." who was unrelated to the child. Possibly frustrated by a sickly child interfering with their relationship with the bio-parent of the boy. Perhaps he was just "in the way". Neighbors didn't report a missing kid, as I suspect the family just picked up and moved. (It would also remove suspicion of a big box leaving the house.) They may also have moved often, if they thought neighbors might notice a neglected child or spousal abuse.
It may also be that the bio-parent, while not the killer, is the one who cleaned up and hid the body, so as not to get the cops involved... and avoid infuriating an abusive spouse. Cleaned him up out of respect for their dead child, but hiding the body so as to protect an abusive head of the family.
