On this day in 1932, the 20-month-old son of famous aviator Charles Lindbergh was kidnapped from the family home. Dubbed the “crime of the century,” the case captivated the nation for several years. Unfortunately, the boy was found dead two months after the kidnapping. Eventually, Bruno Hauptmann, a man linked to the kidnapper’s ransom attempts, was tried, convicted, and executed for the murder. However, doubts linger about whether Hauptmann worked alone or was even guilty of the crime. Due to the strange circumstances surrounding the kidnapping, Lindbergh’s suspicious behavior, and conflicting evidence, it will likely never be known if Hauptman was truly guilty.
