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 can be trusted? Nothing.

Any and all books written about the kidnapping/murder are not to be trusted. They were written by human beings. Human beings are fallible.

All law enforcement reports from the NJSP, BI, NYPD, Jersey City Police, Treasury Department, and Governor Hoffman's investigators are not to be trusted. They were written by human beings. Human beings are fallible.

All exhibits and information at the NJSP archives are not to be trusted. They were generated by human beings. Human beings are fallible.

About the Mersman table. It would not make a difference if the year "1940" had been burned into the wood 1/4 inch deep with a branding iron. The table would still be questioned as to its date.

The crock pot. Correct. The reasonable inference is that Hauptmann buried it. There are a couple of more pieces of information about this buried crock that do not bode well for Hauptmann. Of course, this information is not to be trusted. Human beings are fallible.

        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

                Honestly Script, I've never taken anyone's word for anything until I found out myself by researching it at the Archives. So there's very little I know for sure that did not come from an official... more
