Sue, I don't know how anyone can claim the came is closed, when the following questions remain (not necessarily a complete list):

"If Cemetery John had a "hacking cough," as Condon described, doesn't this connect with Isidor Risch, who died of tuberculosis a few years later, and not with Hauptmann, who never had tuberculosis?'

"If the ransom payment was $50,000., and Hauptmann was caught with about $14,000, what happened to the rest?

"How did the kidnapper(s) know the Lindbergh family would be at Highfields that night, when they had never been there on a Tuesday night, even once?"

"If Hauptmann were Cemetery John, how did he avoid being arrested between April, 1932 and September, 1934, when he was in plain sight the whole time and everybody was looking for him?"

"Assuming Al Capone wasn't stupid and that he knew what obstruction of justice meant, would he ever have been able to return the Eaglet to the Lindberghs if Hauptmann had been a lone kidnapper, as he promised to do?"

"How could Condon have assumed an open letter to a neighborhood newspaper in the Bronx would ever reach a random kidnapper in Central New Jersey, as it did?"

"If everyone connected to the case knew it was a 'gang operation,' how did the opinion of a single psychiatrist, someone who never examined Hauptmann, alter the prosecution so that Hauptmann stood trial as a lone kidnapper?"

When Condon told FBI Agent Leon Turrou, "My life won't be worth five cents (if he identified Hauptmann)," doesn't this prove Condon knew it was a gang operation, as further evidenced by his letter to the Bronx Home News?

            the quest. of wheth. or not the baby's body was moved reminds me of the Don Kemp case, which was explored on a c. 1985 episode of a show first hosted by Raymond Burr and then Robt. Stack. I believe... more
