Will The Real Charles Lindbergh Please Stand Up…

Lucky Lindy

He was a mystery, a man of many moods, faces and truths. Was he really the hero we thought he was? Was he honest? Was he faithful? And was he guilty of a crime that the carpenter, named Bruno Richard Hauptmann was executed for?  What was his relationship with Germany and Hitler?

Some of these are questions that need answers.  Many of the answers would surprise you.

Lindbergh was known by people the world over.  As the first man to fly from the USA to France, alone, he was welcomed back in New York with a ticket-tape parade. His face was in all the papers.

His marriage to Ann Morrow was big news.  The birth of his son was happy news for all.  They lived in a beautiful home in Hopewell New Jersey, and Charles Jr. slept in a second floor nursery.

WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED?

But on a cold, and rainy night on March 12, 1932, sometime between 8 PM and 10 PM, the 20 month old baby was snatched from his bedroom.  There was a make-shift ladder near the open window, and a ransom note was left on a radiator case.  It was a ransom note, demanding $50,000 in different small denominations. Instructions for delivery would follow.  The note warned the family not to notify the police.  The letter was signed with circles and holes.44

Outside, they found that the make-shift ladder was broken, suggesting the kidnapper fell while descending. There was a chisel nearby, used to pry open the window, and tracks from a getaway car nearby.  The footprints were visible but never measured.
