What the hell are you talking about? That was 80 years ago. The kidnapper got the death penalty.

Lee Harvey Oswald possibly ... John Wilkes Booth No. Don't you watch the History channel? I'm sure you weren't around in the 1920's to know one way or the other.

They had very good evidence. Among other things, they proved the ladder used in the kidnapping was made from wood that came from the perp's attic. And they caught him in possession of thousands of dollars of the ransom money.

The ransom money was paid in gold notes, which were becoming obsolete. Everyone was required to turn in their gold notes to a bank and get new currency. That made it possible to monitor usage of the ransom money. Banks were given a list of the serial numbers. That was how they caught the perp. He was using the ransom money, and had a lot of it stashed at home. Then the wood in his attic being a perfect match for the ladder used in the crime made it clear he was the one. Then witnesses identified him as being one of the ones who collected the ransom. And another witness identified him as being near the crime scene.

What possible reason could anyone have for thinking he was framed? He was a total stranger, completely unknown to the Lindberghs or the cops. Why would anyone want to frame a complete stranger? The only way he became known at all was by using some of the ransom money, and getting caught using it, and having a big stash of it at home.

His only possible defense would be that he collected the ransom money as a crime of opportunity, knowing there would be some. But the ladder made it clear he was the kidnapper.
