Back by popular demand~professor and historian Ross Kershey!

On March 1, 1932, Charles Lindbergh, Jr., the twenty-month son of aviator Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh, was abducted from his home in Highfields, New Jersey, and the young toddler's body was discovered nearby on May 12.  Analysis pointed directly to homicide.

One of the "trials of the century" found Bruno Hauptmann guilty of murder and sentenced him to death for the kidnapping of young Charles Lindbergh, but is there more to the story?

A number of books have asserted Hauptmann's innocence.  Was Hauptmann truly guilty or was someone else responsible for the death?

 Join historian Ross Kershey to uncover the facts of the intriguing mystery of the Lindbergh Kidnapping.
