Burl Barer, True Crime Uncensored,ImaginePublicityFor seventy-five years, the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh’s infant son has gone unsolved. Evidence, opinion, and logic have discredited the notion that Bruno Richard Hauptmann –electrocuted in 1936 –acted alone. In this meticulous and authoritative account of the crime, the trial, and the times of the Lindbergh kidnapping, Robert Zorn clears away decades of ungrounded speculation surrounding the case. Inspired by his father’s relationship with the actual accomplices –including the mastermind –he presents the clearest ever picture of a criminal partnership, which would shake every class and culture of American society. Using personal possessions and documents, never-before seen photographs, new forensic evidence, and extensive research, Robert Zorn has written a shocking and captivating account of the crime and the original “Trial of the Century.”

From the ecstatic riots that followed the Spirit of St. Louis on either side of the Atlantic, to the tragic night that would shake America’s sense of security, to the horror of the New Jersey morgue where Lindbergh insisted on verifying the identity of his son, Zorn’s skillful treatment meets this larger-than-life story and gives it definitive shape –revealing the true story behind the crime, for the first time.


On a summer day in 1931, at an amusement park in New Jersey, Gene Zorn, a fifteen-year-old boy from the Bronx, unwittingly witnesses two German immigrant neighbors of his conspiring with a man named “Bruno” to kidnap the infant son of world-famous aviator Charles Lindbergh. Thirty-two years later, in his barbershop, Zorn happens across an article about the Lindbergh kidnapping—and finally grasps the enormity of what he had seen and heard that day long ago.

After his father’s death in 2006, Robert Zorn embarks on a research odyssey in search of clues that will unlock the mystery behind the “Crime of the Century.” Aided by legendary FBI profilers, geographic profilers, optical handwriting recognition experts, researchers of psychopathic personality, and members of the long-deceased mastermind’s own family, Robert uncovers compelling evidence that points squarely in the direction of his father’s former Bronx neighbor as the kidnapper who had lusted after the opportunity to show the world that he was as powerful and great as Lindbergh.
