The remains of the Lindbergh baby is found 2 months after his abduction (graphic)

May 12, 1932
Hopewell, New Jersey
The Lindbergh Baby’s body is found over two months after he was taken from his bed

The baby was murdered the same night he was abducted, killed by a blow to the head which shattered his skull; his tattered, tiny remains were found less than a mile from his house 10 weeks after his kidnapping.

A few days after the abduction, the kidnappers sent a barely legible ransom note and received their money, which was marked. When a marked bill was presented at a gas station, the attendant wrote the suspect’s license plate down, leading to the arrest and eventual execution of German immigrant Bruno Hauptmann, though Hauptmann claimed the bill he used at the gas station and $13,000 of others marked bills from the ransom were given to him. He maintained his innocence until his death.
