Re: Guilty Hauptmann
Wed Jul 5, 2017 09:18

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 he went to his death proclaiming total innocence, speaks only from his ego ("They think they can pin this whole thing on me.. well, I'll show them!") and has nothing to do with truth and innocence.. sad really. While he may not have been the only one who deserved the chair for this crime, this voluntary muteness guaranteed his fate.

    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

        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

                      He probably didn't lie, but he was more than likely incorrect on his date. Larson who was with him knows they were at that house the evening and night of 3/1/32 because he remembered seeing the paper ... more
