Sue for Bob

Yeah, Bob, the importance of asking the right questions.

McCardle got Hauptmann's goat when she asked him about the burlap bag.

Maybe that's all she wanted to do -- get a reaction.

I'm surprised a mistrial wasn't declared when McCardle began asking Hauptmann questions, and he answered her. She says that he yelled loud enough that others could hear in the courtroom.

I'm still very much intrigued with the picture in my mind of Ellerson's car zooming off the Palisades cliffs!

By the way, McCardle's husband, Carl W. McCardle, worked for the Philadelphia Bulletin, not the Philadelphia Inquirer.

And Carl had a government position during the Eisenhower years.

Many, many years ago I posted articles from the Philadelphia-area newspapers from May 1932.
I think they had the most interesting articles pertaining to the discovery of the baby's body -- buzzards and stuff. There was also "reposts" of some of those articles.

          Bob, there is no evidence I know of that Duane Baker and Henry Ellerson knew each other. Mind you, I'm all ears if you actually have any, as Duane Baker is still very much on my personal radar.... more

          Besides Joyce Milton, what other sources record the details of what happened in the Henry Ellerson accident? What evidence is there that Ellerson's car was "burned almost beyond recognition"? Did the ... more
