Sometimes they were even quoted and they'd deny EVER saying it.

            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
