On March 1, 1932 20-month-old. Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr, son of famed pilot, Charles Lindbergh, was abducted from the crib of his second floor bedroom of the Lindbergh’s home in New Jersey. A ladder was left behind, there were ransom notes, voluntary liaisons, suicides, a nation-wide search, and help from not only, J. Edgar Hoover, but the President of the United States. When little Charlie’s body was found two months later near the Lindbergh’s home, the search was on for a killer—and they found one. Or did they? This 89-year-old case is the most publicized of the 20th century. This is the kidnapping of the Lindbergh Baby. Or is it, the Lindbergh Maybe.
