"I have no idea what you're talking about."

Oh, good grief! You don't know about Hauptmann's automobile accident in 1932 (after his visit to a bank)? It occurred in Manhattan and he hit a lawyer while the man was crossing the street. Hauptmann broke the man's leg and was sued as a result.

Hauptmann did not file the claim with his insurance company but tried to pay it off himself.

He said he was 'short of funds' and as a result, never finished paying that debt (to the man's wife). The lawyer conveniently died in 1934.

You don't remember Ellerson? Car wrecks, plane wrecks, always something...
