All I remember about handwriting is that if one's script slants to the right, one is an optimist (the reverse for a pessimist), and if one's capital letters are especially large relative to one's lower-case letters, one is egotistical. That's about it.

But let's assume Trendily was a scientific outlier, and further let's concede that Hauptmann wrote the ransom notes. After all, that's what the jury assumed. So why argue this point in 2018 A.D.?

If Hauptmann wrote the ransom notes, does this mean he was Cemetery John? Does this prove he was in Hopewell, NJ on the night of the kidnapping? Does this make the testimony of Millard Whited (whose own family didn't trust him), and Amandus Hochmuth (effectively, a blind man) more credible than the witnesses who placed Hauptmann in the Bronx on that night? It most certainly doesn't. So maybe the forum should begin searching for the rest of the kidnap gang, and stop obsessing over Reilly's defense witnesses. Isn't that reasonable?

    I went looking for a legendary, landmark, seminal text on forensic document examination written by John M. Trendley. There was nothing to find. Here was a man that was contrary in his handwriting... more

        The first person the investigators called was Albert S. Osborn. He was in bed with a bad cold so he advised the investigators to call his son. They did. Albert D. Osborn agreed to met the police at... more

          Okay. So what I am seeing is that the Osborns both agreed with Trendley before they disagreed with him. Yet when it comes to Trendley all I see from you is FANGS and CLAWS. When it comes to the... more

            Albert S. Osborn did not agree with John Trendley. Saying so does not make it so. You bet it's fangs and claws with John Trendley. Someone like him is very dangerous to the legal profession. This is... more

              Well, according to the report I quoted above, the Osborns did not believe Hauptmann was the writer. That agrees with Trendley's position. Therefore, saying its not true doesn't make that true. I only ... more

                I do not know what the investigators had to laugh about. According to Hauptmann and Scaduto they had just spent the whole night telling Hauptmann how to spell words and teaching him how to write... more

                  You are arguing both sides of the stick. What you should be saying is that you don't like that they were amused by the fact that "Experts" needed to hear the ransom was discovered before their... more

                    I recall that the Osbornes (father & son) were originally divided about whether or not Bruno wrote the ransom notes. Son didn't agree with dad that he had written them, until there was more evidence... more

                      It's hard to argue with the totality of the handwriting evidence against Hauptmann from such a battery of QDE's overall. For the layman, I just shake my head at the obvious similarities between the... more
