The Ghosts of Hopewell: Setting the Record Straight in the Lindbergh Case

Jim Fisher

In this illustrated examination of the Lindbergh kidnapping case, Jim Fisher seeks to set the record straight regarding Bruno Hauptmann’s guilt in the crime of the century.. “In February 1935, following a sensational, six-week trial, a jury in Flemington, New Jersey, found German carpenter Hauptmann guilty of kidnapping and murdering the twenty-month-old son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh.. “It was not until the mid-1970s that revisionists began to challenge the conventional wisdom in the case: that Hauptmann was the lone killer. Revisionist books and articles appeared, as did plays, TV shows, and a movie, all portraying Hauptmann as the victim of a massive police and prosecution frame-up.. “Former FBI agent Fisher discusses the hard evidence - the ransom notes, the wood of the kidnapping ladder, and other evidence. He analyzes and debunks the various revisionist theories and presents new evidence that, coupled with the undisputed facts, proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Hauptmann was guilty as charged: he kidnapped and murdered the infant son of Charles and Anne Lindbergh.
