      I didn't know this till now (5/1/18). Scapegoat is the first book I read on the subject, in about 1977 or 78. Also read his book on Nixon.

      Sorry to hear about the passing of Anthony Scaduto. He was a fine gentleman. Years ago Tony and I discussed Hauptmann's handwriting in the LKC. I agreed to examine specimens of Hauptmann's writings... more

        Yes. May Anthony Scaduto rest in peace. The handwriting research is very interesting. I hope you will share your findings at some point in the future.

          Anthony Scaduto may have been a "fine gentleman" to some, but Anna Hauptmann, who was in a position to know, felt betrayed by him personally and by the low quality of his research on her husband's... more

            also when I talked to anna hauptmans friend, she said she didn't like Robert bryan being friendly with jim fisher

              Hi Steve. Anna sure didn't like very many people that were trying to help her. She didn't like James Fawcett. She felt he wasn't doing good enough. She didn't like Ed Reilly. She thought he was too... more

                Michael, whatever the extent of Hauptmann's guilt (accomplice? extortionist?), I'm convinced Anna always thought he was innocent. Not that she thought he was an angel; clearly she didn't. But if he... more

                  Hi Bob. Believing and knowing are distinctly different from one another. Anna could not remember positively that her husband picked her up at the bakery. She said he "usually" did so on a Tuesday... more

                    Michael, assuming Hauptmann's car could have gotten him back to the Bronx in time to pick Anna up that night, we're still left with several big riddles: 1) What time do we assume the abduction took... more

            What I remember from Scaduto's book is his willingness to suspect the Mafia (OK, to be politically correct, the mob) when other authors had been afraid to go there. Years later, Joyce Milton put it... more

              hi bob hope all is well, your still high on baker I see. the fbi cleared him and had a investigation on him, so I don't think to much on him.

                Steve, I do know the FBI let Baker go. What I don't know is how much they had on him. When you add up the clues, Baker is almost a perfect suspect. Who else but the superintendent at Plymouth (Baker) ... more
          • Re: TonyMichael 5260, Sun Dec 31 08:03
            Anna was upset because Scaduto's book did not prove her husband blameless therefore Tony was a creep. Anna fired Attorney Fawcett because she felt what he was doing wasn't good enough for her... more

            At least Scaduto did research at the NJSP Archives. And yet with your glaring lack of research you still cannot find your way to the NJSP Archives? Talk about the Pot calling the Kettle black! What... more
