Re: Anna Hauptmann, spouse

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 night.

Could he have picked her up? Of course, but it doesn't prevent Hauptmann from being in Hopewell on Tuesday night.
Hauptmann had a Dodge with a flat head six cylinder engine in it. It could do sixty miles an hour for hours without even breathing hard and he could have covered the distance quite easily. Once he pulled onto Route 1 it was a straight run up to Ft. Lee, a right turn toward the GW Bridge, and home.

Anna sat there everyday during the trial. She saw and heard everything the jury saw and heard. She blew it all off.

If Anna is a victim of circumstances it is her husband that created and caused the circumstances.

        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

          There isn't any way to know the exact time that Hauptmann went in and out of the nursery or when Lindbergh came home. We do know that when the baby was checked on he was gone. A rational inference is ... more

            Interesting... There isn't any way to know when the baby was taken but you know which route Hauptmann took?
