In the aftermath of his 1927 solo transatlantic flight, Colonel Charles Augustus Lindbergh - Lucky Lindy - became the most famous human being on earth. But on the evening of March 1, 1932 Lucky Lindy's luck ran out. Bold kidnappers snatched his baby son, Charlie, from the family home near Hopewell, New Jersey while everyone in the house was awake. Negotiations with the kidnappers stretched out for weeks, but little Charlie never came back. His body was discovered not five miles from Hopewell. A German immigrant, Bruno Richard Hauptmann, was executed for the crime. But was he really guilty? And could there be other kidnappers that were never caught?
NOVA reopens one of the most intriguing, grisly and confounding crime mysteries of all time as a team of expert investigators employs state-of-the-art forensic and behavioral science techniques in an effort to determine what really happened to Lindbergh's baby… and why.
