The most widely publicized case of the early 20th century was heard in the Hunterdon County Court House in Flemington, New Jersey. The Lindbergh Kidnapping was a crime that shook up the country. Charles Augustus Lindbergh Jr was the son of famous aviator Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh. He was a 20 month old baby that was put to bed and suddenly abducted from his room on March 1st, 1932. A ransom note was left behind and about two weeks later the baby’s body was found a short distance away from the home. About two years after one of the longest investigations of the time, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested and charged with the crime. After being found in New York, Hauptmann was brought to New Jersey on October 19, 1934. The trial soon became a sensation and had reporters swarming Flemington and booking every hotel room available. Hauptmann was charged with extortion and murder and ultimately convicted of the crimes and sentenced to death. He was electrocuted on April 3, 1936, about four years after the famous kidnapping.Contact Us
