The Babes in the Wood murders is a name which has been used in the media to refer to a child murder case in which the bodies of multiple victims were found concealed in woodland.

Facial reconstructions of both boys.

The remains of two unidentified victims (murdered in 1947) were discovered in Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Wednesday, January 14, 1953. The investigation was hampered when the medical examiner concluded that the victims were one male and one female. A DNA test conducted in 1998 proved that both victims were male. They were between the ages of six and ten when they died. Currently, neither of the victims nor any potential suspects have been identified. This case remains unsolved.[1]
