Condon & the Bronx Home News
Mon Jul 31, 2017 22:28

Perhaps Jafsie DID know of an active plot in the Bronx.

After all...

Condon was known as "The Grand Old Man of the Bronx."

The Bronx News was a paper that ONLY dealt with news that came out of the BRONX!

Reporters knew that he was down in the city room often -- he was a fixture at the Bronx Home News. Everyone knew him. He loved the limelight!

Shortly after the kidnapping, Condon was at a meeting where residents from the Bronx were asked their opinions about the Lindbergh kidnapping. Condon was in attendance, and stated that he would give $1000 of his own money to help bring Baby Lindbergh back.

Condon's statement was soon published in the Bronx Home News.

    Reilly must have sensed that Condon knew more than he let on, specifically that the kidnapping was a mob operation, not a lone-wolf escapade by Hauptmann. Not that Reilly was particularly perceptive, ... more

      First of all a public apology is called for to the Schonfeld family for the above post. He was a thoroughly professional M.D. and psychiatrist who donated his time towards solving the greatest crime... more

        Jack, I presume you're referring to my choice of words when I called Schonfeld a "quack." Schonfeld never once met Hauptmann. He never spoke to him on the telephone. Yet he drew a mental picture of a ... more

          I would think that you, Bob Mills, who in the past have been in a position which deserved respect, though perhaps not any more, would think before you tossed unfavorable and of course ridiculous... more

            Professionals, Jack? Does the term "professional" automatically attach to someone in a profession? Or should the word be reserved for those who ACT professional? I think most people would prefer the... more

        Jack, Jack, Jack, what are we to do with you? Me thinks you need to go back to that bowling ally and get your as●●● kicked again,,,, JMHO
        • BAJack, Thu Aug 17 06:21
          Nothing happened at the bowling alley. I wonder if you commenters even read the posts. I told a guy I'd bowl him one game for $ 500 and wouldn't take his check. Would you? If you would you're pretty... more

        "Condon's [verbal] statement was soon published in the Bronx Home News." Condon's "statement" was actually a Letter to the (Ass't) Editor (Coleman) of the BHN (whom he knew personally). He had... more

        "If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, etc..." Sue, you've done far more research than I have on the LKC. But what first drew me to the case were the amazing "coincidences" that surrounded ... more

            Steve, my understanding is that they couldn't prove Baker laundered the money because the bank teller couldn't remember what "J./J. Faulkner" looked like (or was afraid to get involved). Then it... more

              Upon checking my notes I find that Carl Geissler actually worked with Ralph Hacker, Jafsie Condon't son-in-law. Hacker was married to Myra (nee Condon). Sorry for the error.
