Just a few holes. Right.

In these sorts of far-fetched stories, there is always at least one detail that falls with a loud thud. "Crossed toes"? A man who was said to be oblivious when it came to his kids is supposed to have gone out of his way to get rid of one because of crossed toes?

And the money -- a "billion" dollars?

Sigh.

So, in the past decade or so, this guy has not been able to get a private eye to offer a cup of coffee to one of the Lindbergh's, pocket the cup, and have the DNA in the saliva on the rim of the cup tested? No private eyes shook hands with a Lindbergh and collected the DNA? No private eyes did a quick needle stick on a Lindbergh while passing on a crowded street? Assuming that there's tons of money at stake, it sounds like Baby Lindbergh is a bit lazy -- maybe the fall from the second floor window damaged his brain when he was a baby?

Somebody up this guys meds and/or put him in touch with Pinky.

WHY WAS THIS ARTICLE PRINTED? Can we expect that the Sentinal will soon be covering people claiming to be Jimmy Hoffa, Amelia Earhart, etc.

This is the most ridiculous article the Sentinel has EVER printed. Is it April Fools Day or something. I'm embarrassed for Shanna.

HAWHAHAHWHAHAHAHHA!! Sure. One of my friends thinks he is John F Kennedy reincarnated. I sometimes think Im jesus himself. Don't make it true. The Sentinel is really reaching here.

My grandfather worked at an airfield near Chicago in the 1920's, and knew Charles Lindbergh, because Lindbergh ran the air mail between St. Louis and Chicago, and would land and briefly hang out with the ground crew, going to dinner or whatever. Yes, Lindbergh was a cold guy, not well liked.....but this story is ridiculous and should have never been printed. He is not Charles Lindbergh Jr. He probably believes he is, though.

This guy resembles Dwight Whitney Morrow, Ann's father. His ears, chin, forehead, etc...Could be a possibility.

So who was the dead infant? Didn't they positively identify him as the Lindbergh baby? I feel badly for this guy and his difficult circumstances, but this is hard to swallow, and it really doesn't belong in the newspaper unless there is going to be a DNA test. I'd like to see that.

Excellent journalism. Be proud.

Say... I think this is the same fellow that offered to sell me a bridge that goes from San Francisco to Marin County. He even showed me pictures of it.
