A deathbed confession. A gun encased in concrete. And the possibility both could have kept Bruno Richard Hauptmann from going to the electric chair for the kidnap and murder of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. When journalist Michael Foldes hears the story of an upstate NY family who could have known the killers, he teases out details in the 80-year-old case that plausibly point to Hauptmann's innocence.
