You might see it that way Joe but in the context of what he actually believed the single phrase "guilty as hell" is misleading when considering how this case has been perceived from one side or the other. Next, I find it hard to believe he used these exact words when comparing what he said to everyone else in all of the other accounts. This is the only place and its why, I believe, its the only one everyone who believes Hauptmann a "lone-wolf" will point to.

Fact is, Fisher said in several places that Hauptmann's hands were "not clean." That's a far cry from "guilty as hell." Is there any source that has Fisher saying this anywhere else? No. Now if Fisher told him that Hauptmann was involved, and his agenda was to discredit Scaduto, I don't think it a stretch. I look at your logic here and you don't seem to see the difference so that might be acceptable to some.

Like I said, it is a source worthy of consideration against the thousands of others. My bias falls on the side of the documentation. I've had many original theories smashed by whats written in it all. So try as we might, we cannot pick and choose what is contained in the actual sources of real information.

          Perhaps what? This doesn't make any sense Joe. I've said all things must be considered. Once that's done then it is what it is. Shuman's account is not clear because no one asked him questions about... more
