You speak as if you were actually walking in his shoes. The man had more access and the most amount of information concerning Hauptmann than anyone else.

First thing is that his Lawyers were bound by confidentiality. So we can try to glean certain things by listening to what was said and reading confidential (at the time) letters, memos, and reports. Researching the documentation is not a trial. Your position seems odd to me - that if you cannot cross-examine there is no value to it. Everyone is dead Script and the trial testimony was rife with lies, dirty tricks, and embellishments. While certainly a source, it can in no way be relied on solely if the truth is what we seek. I use it often to compare with the reports to specifically identify what they weren't being truthful about.

              You are incorrect of both points. My discussions do not exclude anything relevant. Next, testimony from other related cases that contradict testimony in Flemington should not be ignored. Yet it is -... more
