    Abstract

    The kidnapping and death of the Lindbergh baby in 1932 were called “The Crime of the Century.” The subsequent investigation and trial proved a watershed for scientific crime detection in this country and for courtroom presentation of scientific and demonstrative evidence. Review of the evidence 50 years later—particularly the questioned document, physical. and psychiatric evidence—shows that the conclusions reached then are valid even by today's standards and that they were arrived at in a highly professional manner. Only the autopsy findings are found wanting.
