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 ransom notes and the mini-autobiography that Hauptmann penned to his lawyer, James Fawcett. I have to believe Hauptmann was close to seeing how he might be able to do at that point with an insanity defense, by stressing the impact of his wartime injuries.
