I disagree. That capital "K" is very distinctive and would stand out like a sore thumb in anyone's normal writings - and was not in BRH's.

    John Trendley shares his observation concerning the k's with the Flemington jury. A. ...I never found a "K" of Hauptmann's style of writing, he never deviated from his own handwriting(in the request... more

        The "k" that has the right side of the letter appearing as a numeral "3" does not appear in Hauptmann's request writing. The "x" that looks like two small "e's" written back to back is not present in ... more

          I wouldn't want to even hazard a guess as to the odds of Hauptmann not having written the ransom notes. He clearly demonstrated his "double e" "x's" were specific to that period and it would not... more

            I agree w/Joe. While Richard was thinking about it, i.e. had time to write the notes, he was probably devising some form of trickery for his writing. Why wouldn't he? But the basic writing, in spite... more

              I might have missed it Jack, but what was your proof? I have a lot of my own thoughts that tell me the same thing.

                Well, Joe - I've gone by what Ronelle commented when I posted mine, "why didn't anyone think of this before?" I know you said that if Charles would have known what was in the note he would never have ... more

                  Oops, if CAL would have known what was in the note, I believe you said he would have opened it and then not called the police. Sorry, my FP. If Charles would have known Charlie was dead he could have ... more

                    Yes, my point was that if Lindbergh had set this up as a fake kidnapping, and of course known the envelope on the windowsill was part of the staging, he would have opened it right away and not... more

                    Above was from Jack. Maybe I'll be Jack Anonymous.

                  In reality though, all side talk aside, I solved The Lindbergh Crime because I knocked out the biggest obstacle to Hauptmann's doing it alone, and there's nobody else to blame.
