This trim board writing may have completely surprised Hauptmann. He may have forgotten about it,since he wrote it in 1932, and now he was confronted with it in 1934.

I think Hauptmann was afraid of this handwriting discovery and was therefore afraid to respond directly with yes or no answers. Would a yes answer be detrimental to him? Or would a no answer be detrimental to him? Hauptmann decided to be evasive and avoided pegging himself down.

Hauptmann knew he could not give a reasonable explanation for Condon's telephone number. He couldn't say "he was a little bit interest in the case" and plucked the number out of the newspaper. The telephone number was never published in the newspapers.

    If he was guilty, why didnt he say, "I didn't write any of this; someone is framing me." ? If he was innocent, why didnt he say, "I didnt write any of this; some one is framing me."

          In order for a person to write the correct 1932 telephone number, 3-7154, a person would either have to have the number memorized or carrying it with them at the time Hauptmann's apartment was being... more

            Your position is very flawed. Every Reporter knew Condon's phone number ... and they called it often before his wife changed the number.

              Hauptmann admitted to Samuel Foley it was his handwriting, but still creatively adept enough after being caught red-handed to come up with an explanation, which he felt would suffice. If he knew it... more

                That's right, Joe; he simply would have denied it altogether. Guilty or not, he would have denied it. That's what's so perplexing.

                  The Reporter wrote the phone number there. He admitted it to several people but the one who counts for me is Lloyd Fisher. Since I am familiar with Fisher's material he wasn't the type to make... more

                    that reporter was in gov hoffmans back pocket. I never believed that story, Hauptman admitted writing it his reason is so stupid a little bit interested in the case

                Wow Joe. That took you a couple just a couple of sentences to explain! Meanwhile, it took me 60 pages and 200 footnotes. Don't like it? Well call it from the hand of an "apologist." Make it "appear"... more

                  Michael, if it takes you 60 pages and 200 pages of research writing to conclude that a reporter wrote Condon's phone number on the closet trim, based on what Lloyd Fisher claims he was told by the... more

                    Unfortunately Joe it is in the source documentation - and as I demonstrated - it is anything but clear. And so it appears, in an attempt to mock the amount of research I've done, that you actually... more

                      Michael, I'm not mocking the amount of research you've done, but I disagree that more is necessarily more, as you seem to believe. That would entirely depend on the irrefutable veracity and relevance ... more

        Hauptmann also boxed himself into a corner by stating he had a habit of writing things down on walls and other pieces of trim. The dollar and serial figures on the back of the nursery closet door... more
