The 1932 kidnapping and death of the then almost-two-year-old Charles “Charlie” Lindbergh was the stuff of tragic melodrama. The case of what happened to the Lindbergh baby drew worldwide attention. After all, aviator Charles Lindbergh, Sr. was the most famous man in the world, having been the first person to fly solo and non-stop across the Atlantic. Everyone loved handsome and daring “Lucky Lindy,” and the world rejoiced when he married the lovely Anne Morrow and produced the adorably blond and chubby “Baby Lindy.” But on a cold March night in 1932, the child was mysteriously taken from his crib. Within just a few hours, the Hopewell, New Jersey crime scene was hopelessly contaminated, muddying the evidence forever, and further clouding the strange circumstances discovered by case investigators.
