I agree with Bob. It makes no sense why Bruno would have written the # on the inside molding of his dark closet! I think Cassidy wrote it there. I think that the claim that neither Cassidy nor anyone else in the press was given access to Bruno's house is not true. (Has anyone seen the picture that was in at least one of the newspapers showing the Hauptmanns' bedroom, with the mattress turned over and the sheets, pillows, and blanket all askew? I am fairly certain that was not a police photo!

    My personal e-mail is, Michael. I'm interested in your research, as always. Here's where I stand on the issue, before hearing from you. Hauptmann didn't have a telephone, so... more

      we have hauptmann admitting it also so Cassidy is not believable

        Actually, Steve, Hauptmann didn't admit it. When he was asked if he had written Condon's number on the wall, he was confused, but apparently wanted to help the cops resolve the issue. So he said he... more

          Read the transcript, Bob. Hauptmann doesn't sound confused here at all. He's simply following the line of questioning. As much as it may seem an unusual habit to you and me, writing information on... more

            I agree the (3) questionings should be read. So should the Bronx Testimony, the Flemington Testimony, the Police Reports, the Memos, Interviews, and the Letters. In fact, everything should be read.... more

              "I guess I must have written (Condon's phone number) on the wall" doesn't sound to me like an admission of guilt. It sounds more like a confused person's effort to answer a hostile question. Michael... more

          Bruno said that only the letters (or was it the numbers?) looked like his writing. Then he explained to Foley that MAYBE he wrote it down because he was a little bit interested in the case. WHy... more

        For what it's worth, here's my take on this on the drama side of this incident. I think Cassidy may have discovered the writing after being allowed access to the Hauptmann apartment and then informed ... more

          The gist of the Tom Cassidy story is that he wrote the handwriting on the trim board in order to have a hot news article. A scoop for the next day. We find that the newspaper article about the... more

            The first mistake is to assume. The second mistake is to believe that ANY reporter would not have wanted a "scoop" on either side of things. That position is a clear indicator that one hasn't done... more

              So you are deviating from the holy scriptures of Scaduto and Kennedy concerning the Tom Cassidy story? I'm not assuming anything. Both authors made the same claim about Cassidy. Now their information ... more

          I don't think Cassidy's "role" is merely "a side show" at all, because it complicates the issue. I find this to be one of the big puzzles of the case. DO you agree? Bruno's responses to Foley about... more

            The reason I call Cassidy's supposed claim a sideshow is because it should never have generated this much press and eternal discussion. Hauptmann's direct admission came on the heels of having been... more
