Michael for Bob & Richard

I sort it all out. The message boards have been a tremendous help over the years because they offer up all of the various arguments and counter-arguments. So what I've done is address the counter-arguments such as "Cops wouldn't do that" or "Reporters wouldn't do that," and finally "Cops and Reporters do not conspire together to engage in this behavior."

I've taken all of those arguments away so now everyone is simply left to address the facts of the matter. I am certain in doing so there will still be differences of opinion but at least now we will all know what the NJSP Archives actually hold.

    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 ... more

      hauptmann admitted he wrote it there to the surprise of the police. this tom Cassidy crap is so b.s. don't forget he testified in the ellis parker trial, he was in sombodys back pocket

        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

              ALl of this wonderful dialogue on the subject indicates to me that this is not a sidebar issue at all; it's important. I believe that Bob Mills'statement that perhaps Bruno was simply not savvy... 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
        • Re: CassidyJoe for Richard, Sun Jul 8 08:21
          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
