Richard E Sloan
"Old Sparky" book
Wed Jan 24, 2018 11:01

I just read the 8 pgs. on the Lindbergh case in "Old SParky," by Irishman Anthony Galvin, described on the dj as "a highly experienced crime journalist." I borrowed it from a local library. It sells for $35. What a waste. He quotes CJ as having said, Would I "Burn if the package were dead."The next sentence reads, "...$50,000 was handed over to a cab driver." He quotes a final Bruno statement," which the author prints in its entirety (exc. for one ellipse.). I don't recall eve reading it before, and Galvin's source is not given. It is beautifully written, with no grammatical errors or misspelling. Why doesnt it seem familiar to me? If legit and I just cant recall it, who helped him draft it? Or who re-wrote it in later years? Does anyone know? I can't quote it here; it's too long.

        In Caroline County, Virginia, many locals still believe Booth escaped and that the man with Herold at Garrett's Farm was a Confederate named J.W. Boyd. I agree with you that it's a myth, Richard.... more

          I think the same doc who said (and Orlowek is quick to cite) that the corpse at the autopsy on the monitor deck didn't bear any resemblance to Booth then saw and recognized his prior work on the man. ... more
