(Before It's News)

It was the kidnap of kidnaps!   Perhaps the crime of the century!

On this day in 1932, the most famous baby in the US was kidnapped.  He was 20-months old and his disappearance was a front page story for a long time:

Charles Lindbergh Jr., the twenty-month-old son of aviation hero Charles Lindbergh, is kidnapped from the family’s new mansion in Hopewell, New Jersey. Lindbergh, who had become famous around the world five years earlier when he flew The Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic, and his wife Anne discovered a ransom note in their child’s empty room. The kidnapper had used a ladder to climb up to the open second-floor window and had left muddy footprints in the room.”

A few years ago,  I saw a movie about the man who was convicted of the kidnapping.  It was “The crime of the century” and raised doubts about the conviction of Bruno Hauptmann.
