Michael 5260 for Joe
Re: Cassidy

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 handwriting discovery was written by a different reporter. How could this happen? If Cassidy's story was truthful it couldn't have happened.

At the same time this weirdness was supposed to be going on Cassidy was beating the bushes trying to find employment records proving Hauptmann was working March 1.

So Cassidy is supposed to have fabricated incriminating false evidence against Hauptmann and at the same time he was searching for exculpating evidence favorable to Hauptmann.

Ah, the duality of life I guess.

        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
