handwriting identification
Sun Aug 5, 2018 10:19

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 agst. him came about!! Only then did he "come aboard." What a sham! I am reminded of the fact that the family firm was approached by McGraw-Hill to pass judgement on the Howard Hughes diary. They proclaimed it to be legit, leading McGraw-Hill to give Clifford Irving a fantastic advance. And as we all know, the reclusive Howard Hughes came forward (with a nationally heard phone call/press conference) to debunk it. I think the Osborne office is somehow still in business! (By the way, I worked with a TV engineer at ABC who happened to have bought the senior Osborne's home many years ago. He found the printing plates for his famous handwriting book in his basement! Alas, not knowing much about it, he threw them out.

    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

        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

      I do not care whether or not law enforcement was amused by the Osborns. I do know that a conclusion about a handwriting has to be proven in court. An examiner does this with handwriting exhibits,... more

        Thanks for the offer but I don't need you to look into it for me since I've already done it for both. I am telling you it occurred, and it contradicts your position. Unlike some of the other internet ... more

          If you have already looked into it you can answer the questions. So, crank up some of that secret, it seems to be secret, archival information you have and answer the questions. No, I don't know of... more

            Of course I could answer them as could many others here on THIS Board. Isn't it amazing that we have a whole group of "Experts" over on the Yahoo site that cannot? Why is that I wonder? That insult... more

              Okay. If there are many others on this board, I only need one person, that can answer my two questions I look forward to hearing their forthcoming answers. The questions are: * What was the name and... more

                As to question number 2: Bert Farrar, QDE, U.S. Treasury Dept. He did believe that Hauptmann wrote the notes, but had a "falling out" with the State Police in 1932. He was subpoenaed to the Hauptmann ... more

                  Someone has been paying attention. The falling out went further than just in '32. And the use of the subpoena was a tactic employed by the State. That tactic was twofold: They never intended to use... more
