Guilty Hauptmann
Tue Jul 4, 2017 13:40

You shouldn't have been upset. There is more evidence than has been presented on here that Hauptmann was guilty from crib to gas station and there's no solid evidence that he had any help.

Dudley had more of a take on the crime than perhaps anybody (wrote quite a bit about it and attended every day of trial) so what he says can't just be thrown out with a "nutty professor" theory of why he sais it.

    Dudley Shoenfeld. It's the opening paragraph to his book which I haven't looked at in many years. I was so upset the other night by this introduction that I am not sure I can read the rest of it now. ... more

      Any psychologist who would draw a profile of a man on trial for his life, a profile the prosecutor used to portray Hauptmann as a lone kidnapper, without once meeting with or speaking with that man,... more

        If you were to picture this case as a hologram, Hauptmann is virtually everywhere.. the ladder, the ransom notes, the cemeteries, the gold bills, 'retirement' from professional carpentry, etc. That... more

          BRH was the only one who deserved the chair because in spite of spending a fortune trying to find somebody else who was also guilty, the State never really provided a potential kidnapper much less... more

            Jack, for me the question isn't, "Is Hauptmann innocent?" but, "What is the level of his guilt?" Every cop on the case, every newspaper, Jafsie Condon, even Lindy himself assumed the kidnapping was a ... more

              The ladder puts Hauptmann in the nursery. Do you know how the board from the attic got into the BRH residence basement? He had no idea he was using a board from his house. I agree and he would too... more

                They quit investigating the crime because after Hauptmann was convicted, the case was closed. As opposed to Simpson's wife and boyfriend's murders, that case for example is still active although they ... more

                  I beg to differ with you. A nice looking young man named something like Ehlstrom swore on the stand that he saw Bruno there. The prosecution was unable to impeach his testimony. He was solid as a... more

                    You're thinking of Elvert Carlstrom who testified that BRH was at the bakery on March 1 and held his own very well on the witness stand. He did, however, come forward very late with the information - ... more

                      Why on earth would or did Carlstrom lie on the stand?! We all know -- or at least suspect -- that Wilentz "saw to it" that a couple of his witnesses gave favorable testimony. Do you think it's... more
