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 husband. She wanted Ed Reilly. Reilly once got a woman off the hook for secretly bringing a gun into jail that her husband or boy friend used to kill a guard. What a stupid jury that must have been. Add to it that Hearst was going to pick up Reilly's fee and it was a match made in heaven.

Tony did quite a bit of evidence massaging in his book. What he had to say about Albert Hamilton is an example. Why he put this claptrap in his book stuns the senses.

There is more. According to Scaduto it was not proven that Hauptmann wrote the ransom notes and at the same time it was not proven that he did not write the ransom notes. So, we are to believe that eight of the best forensic document examiners in the country at the time were dopes and John M. Trendley, for the defense, was also a dope. This is a ludicrous claim. This is what happens when a person has a preconceived notion before ever hitting one key on a typewriter.

          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
