Re: David Bari

Everything is interesting to me...

Bari was the guy Osborn was interested in. Among other things, he said his "2"s had the same curl as those in the ransom notes. He also spoke about difficulty in making a determination about the handwriting because "there is no way to determine how much disguise was used." He didn't want him arrested but did want Bari placed under surveillance by police.


By the way, I found out that Fawcett employed another handwriting expert named "Albert Hurrle." His address was listed as 200 East 76th Street in NYC. I assume Hurrle was a German because his name is among the list of those Germans being detained on Ellis Island on 10/10/42.

    This may be an interesting subject to look into. What do you think?

        What caused the police to pounce on Bari was the $5 ransom bill. Anyone that could be connected to Lindbergh ransom money was going to be suspicious to the police. What Osborn saw in Bari's... more

          Well not really... They always tried to trace a bill and looked at whoever it may have passed through. The handwriting in connection to the bill was what made them more closely look at this guy. My... more

            I doubt very much that Osborn would have said David Bari wrote all the Lindbergh ransom notes if the police had found ransom money hidden in his garage, closet, or anywhere else. Osborn warned... more

              Hi All.I've been out of the loop due to concentrating on another high profile case plus life's little ins and outs. As a certified handwriting analyst, I have to agree with what you've said here. I... more

              We'll have to agree to disagree about what Osborn would have done.... Malone was a handwriting expert for over 32 years by that date and had testified in court as one many times in multiple states.... more

                It's okay for us to disagree about what Osborn would have done if loads of Lindbergh ransom had been found with David Bari. Since that did not happen the issue is moot. I just wanted to point out... more

                  I don't want to get into a back and forth so I'll say my last about Malone in this post. Yes, he was a Penman. He was also an Artist. And lastly, he was a Handwriting Expert who was qualified as one... more

                    In the early days it wasn't difficult to be qualified by the courts as an expert witness on handwriting. This left the door wide open for people that had no qualifications at all to testify in court... more

                      Do you know how many "Experts" would eventually claim to believe Fisch wrote the notes - and who they were?
