when did the baby die?

Nobody has mentioned that a kidnapper with a live baby was no asset! The baby would need someone to take care of him and at a pre-determined hideout where nobody would hear him cry. The baby was going to be killed, regardless of whether or not he was killed accidentally. The first thing to do was to chloroform the baby to shut him up. I think he was placed in the bag by the kidnapper for the purpose of getting down the ladder with two hands on the rails, and then killed in the woods before the chloroform had a chance to wear off and then dumped there. SOmeone here challenged the notion that the baby was carried down in the bag. What leads you to think that? The idea that the heavy footprint was due to the kidnapper suddenly landing in the mud because the ladder rail split. But I wish to know how high the split was? Was it just 3 or 4 feet up or was it higher than that.

          hat's an interesting response. I am not convinced Bruno was the man who actually snatched the baby. Maybe there WAS a plan to take him alive but he was dropped when the ladder cracked, which changed... more
