The “Crime of the Century” is generally recognised as the kidnapping and murder of American hero Charles Lindbergh’s 20-month-old infant son on March 1, 1932. It was hard for the country to believe that one of the world’s most recognised and beloved man would experience one of a parent’s worst nightmare. Charles Jr. was taken from his crib by an intruder who claimed a ladder into his bedroom at the family home. A ransom note was found about two miles from the home in a wooded area. The infant’s skill was fractured. He was killed on the night he was kidnapped. Mr. Lindbergh identified his remains from a birth defect in one of his son’s toes which had been surgically corrected. Richard Hauptmann, a 35-year-old illegal German immigrant who worked as a carpenter was the kidnapper and murderer. After a spectacularly detailed five-week trial, he was convicted, and was electrocuted on April 3, 1936, at New Jersey’s Trenton State Prison.

There will always be something to ruin our lives, it all depends on what or which finds us first. We are always ripe and ready to be taken. by Charles Bukowski
