No one at Highfields complicit in any way, no staged kidnapping/hoax.
Conspiracy originates amongst the card players in Duane Baker's basement.
Possible connection and inside information via the Morrow household servants.
More than one kidnapper including Hauptmann, in Hopewell.
Others get cold feet after death of baby and drop out.
Hauptmann continues with ransom payout, Fisch helps to launder the money.
With Fisch dead, Hauptmann refuses to budge one iota when caught, or have his will broken.
Facing the chair, he pins his hopes on Fisher, Hoffman and a flawed investigation, rather than confess.

        Like this a lot but how does the ladder tie into Hauptmans' attic and the original kidnappers?
