Charles Lindbergh Jnr aged 20 months was taken from his room during the night of March 1 1932 while his parents Charles Lindbergh the celebrated aviator who made the first transatlantic crossing in 33 and a half hours and Anne Morrow Lindbergh were downstairs Also in the house were two servants and the baby's nurse Betty Gow who would be the first to discover the baby was missing A ransom note was left on the windowsill where the abductor had supposedly entered asking for 50000 for the baby's safe return What followed was a feverish search for the baby the hunt for the abductor and following the capture of the abductor be called the crime of the century The details of the case are fascinating How no fingerprints except the baby's were found in the nursery for example or the fact that in a full house how nobody saw or heard anything like a home made ladder being set up outside and the abductor entering and taking the baby without a noise being uttered by the infant The baby's remains were later found a short distance from the house after the ransom had been paid An unemployed German immigrant called Bruno Hauptmann would later be charged with the murder and abduction after it was found that he had in his possession over 14000 of the ransom money the serial numbers having been recorded before being handed out Also a plank of wood from his attic was missing which matched a part of the home made ladder found at the scene of the abduction Though there was a lot of circumstantial evidence and dody witnesses all recounted here by Geary Hauptmann was convicted and executed in 1936 Though it seemed likely Hauptmann was the perpetrator it has never been conclusive and the various theories and inconsistencies are fascinating to read about Though it was famous at the time and for many years afterward now in the 21st century the case remains all but forgotten to the mass of people and to myself It was a thorough and interesting account of this case and was great to read As always Geary brings to light forgotten cases and reveals them in detail keeping the reader in suspense despite these cases being resolved decades ago Another great book by Geary highly recommended

Rick Geary ¿ 3 summary

Ts blackmail notes false and otherwise as well as the string of colorful characters w. Rick Geary's illustrations of famous unresolved cases are a refreshing way of learning about them without going through all the reports and case files He sums up the key points of each crime and gives a detailed account of what any enthusiast needs to know enough to grab the essence of it at least Although he uses third person narration with little or no dialogue losing a big chunk of what a graphic novel is The illustration style at first seems mediocre and procedural but you get used to it and and end up finding it suitable for the genre
