I do not think its rational to jump to conclusions without anything to back it up except a newspaper article that cannot be trusted. Foisting this upon someone as if they're an idiot or something once they may not agree are tactics I've seen all too often and serve no real purpose. I look at your position concerning "how" Bollard would have reacted without knowing anything about the man, and this idea his own family would not as problematic. Who else would know someone's tendencies and habits? You or his family? Anyway, in this case there is not enough information to draw any rock solid indication. I'm not going to beat a dead horse here....

As to your crock post....

I look at the matter from a more general perspective. Who had access? Hauptmann, Schuessler, anyone off the street who wanted to use a penknife to open the door, and the police. First, would someone off the street hide this there? I'd say "no." Next, would police "plant" it there?

Well, there's story that involved the police finding ransom money then re-hiding it. They wanted Anna brought into the garage to see her reaction as they pretended to find it again. So there's a method behind what they did. "Planting" an item such as this crock serves no purpose that I can tell. So I rule them out.

In the end we're left with Hauptmann and Schuessler. I can not offer a reason for Schuessler to hide it there, and since Hauptmann was the only guy we absolutely know hid items in that garage I'd say he was responsible for putting it there.

This is no big revelation because he lied in several places as I've outlined in my book. I've also outlined that he did not corner the market on lies either. Everyone attached to this case lied - some more than others.

    Thank you. I think we are finally getting somewhere. Sometimes it is very important to pay attention, strict attention, to what a person, such as Elmer Bollard, first tells you. That first story may... more

        The information about the sale/purchase date of the Mersman table appeared in two different New Jersey newspapers written by two different reporters. You say the information cannot be trusted. What... more

          You lost me. Did you read what Mark wrote? Newspapers are a source but probably the worst of all possible sources. Its why there's a lot wrong in the FBI Summary because it relies on newspaper... more

            No need to get lost. If you believe two different New Jersey newspaper articles written by two different news reporters are providing flawed information about the Mersman table, fine. If you would... more

              I believe Mark. I believe my eyes. I know nothing was found in a "leg" because there is no leg. And I believe what my research tells me. Benny Lupica. David Moore. Have you heard of them? Both were... more

                Scaduto didn't misunderstand a damn thing. He said Albert Hamilton identified someone else as the writer of the ransom notes before Hauptmann was arrested. It's in his stinking book. Scaduto said... more
