What keeps the Lindbergh Kidnapping Case from dying a dignified death is this type of sensationalist speculation. So, apparently Cassidy's a lame duck (nice run though, Tom) and Henry Paynter may now be destined to become the cause celebre for another generation of researchers and authors looking for just about any excuse to excuse Hauptmann. Lloyd Fisher was told by this reporter that he was the author of the closet trim writing, and Fisher then sat on his butt and did nothing about it? That seems pretty unlikely. Where are the examples of Henry Paynter's handwriting?

    Nobody even cares about Lindbergh anymore tosay nothing about the crime. In one study more than 50% of the people on the street didn't even know who CAL was. Just go down the list of important and... more

        Why would it be "unlikely?" If you are suggesting Fisher "lied" about this then there certainly would have been bigger and better lies to tell - especially since it was only the phone number and... more

          Okay, I think I understand your point now. You're basically saying that Fisher believed Paynter was telling him the truth about having "added" the phone number, but he also realized the "2974... more

            Paynter told Fisher, among others, that he wrote the " phone number " there. Over the years it morphed into Cassidy admitting to everything. Even in Hawke's interview he attributed "everything" to... more

              I'm certain there was a lot of collusion between Reporters and Cops back in those days, and that that type of unholy alliance formed the basis of Inspector Bruckman's serendipitous "discovery" within ... more

                I remember Fisher being quoted as saying "Guilty as hell" when asked about Richard's innocence. I could probably find the quote again. It happened when he and another guy were going out fishing.

                  I'm not certain about the veracity of that account but I agree with the sentiment, Jack. Fisher couldn't possibly have felt otherwise, having come as close to Hauptmann as he did, and being... more

                    I think you'll also see from comments that nobody seems to give a s--- anymore. Of course when I say nobody, I don't mean the die-hard few who refuse to give up. I truly think that if we could have a ... more

                    I agree Joe, Fisher seemed to like Haoptmann, and if you can save a guy from the chair what the heck.

                    He told someone that Hauptmann's hands weren't unclean. That's the worst I've been able to find, and I believe it was said. Aside from words we do have actions to think about. Like for example, once... more

                      Michael, I agree completely. For some reason, intelligent people lose perspective when it comes to serious crimes. Every accused has to be "guilty as hell" or "totally innocent." It's almost as if... more

                      You're preaching to the long converted that the answer to this case lies somewhere between black and white. For the sake of argument and placing Lone Wolf on the left and Lindy Did It on the right,... more
