    The Lindbergh kidnap is a lesson for the McCanns - and the media

    Some interesting points regarding media involvement, as well as the role of rumor in such a case:

    "To read the diaries of Anne Morrow Lindbergh is to be taken to the heart of parental anguish "

    I'm one of those people that think Mr. Lindbergh had something to do with his son's death.

    Well, ok, but could you be more specific? Why, what part did he play?

    Except that in this case, the police don't believe there was a kidnapping, she died in the room. Most pedos would abduct the child, not kill them on the spot with two other children present.

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Hi Shrinky,
    I've just started reading more about the Lindbergh case only recently.
    It has been said that Mr. Lindbergh was known for practical jokes done in poor taste. I have a feeling that his son's death was a joke gone wrong.

    But, that is totally just my opinion. I need to read some more about the case.

    That could be. I don't know - obviously, or I'd be promoting my book on the topic right now

    I have heard that theory before. I have a much easier time seeing that Hauptmann was falsely accused than i do seeing how Lindbergh might have been. I've always thought it was a kidnap for money and the baby was accidentally killed, ruining the plan. I don't even remember what I read that made me think that - this was years ago.

    I did think that the connection regarding the media exposure was interesting, though, even though the case itself is rather dusty in my mind. If anyone has a good book to recommend on the topic, I'd be interested in hearing about it.
