http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/barclay_nicholas.html I can't find a thread for this case so I thought I'd start one here. It interests me because of Bourdin's involvement, which is bizarre. From what I've read. Bourdin had run a lot of different cons in Europe and the Barclay thing was just one more -- but why? I didn't see that Nicholas came from a wealthy family or anything, so I doubt Bourdin could have gained much financially by passing himself off as that boy. I doubt Bourdin actually knew anything about Nicholas's disappearance, though. I think probably he ran away from home, but I'm not sure he's alive now. He's been gone for so long. Thoughts, anyone?
