Bruno Richard HAUPTMANN



The handwriting evidence


The handwriting evidence against Hauptmann was overwhelming. Forming the heart of the state's case
against Hauptmann, the testimony of the eight forensic document examiners lasted four days
and produced a transcript of 800 pages. The questioned documents included:

1.- The nursery note
2.- The fourteen extortion letters
3.- The "Boad Nelly" note
4.- The address on the mailed sleeping suit package
5.- John Condon's phone number written on a board in Hauptmann's closet

The handwriting evidence totaled 1,400 words. The known, conceded writing consisted of hundreds of
words in Hauptmann's notebooks; his car registration signatures; insurance papers and other
personal documents. The request samples involved handwriting elicited from Hauptmann
through Albert S. Osborn's carefully worded paragraph.


Questioned documents:


1.- Nursery note.



2.- Ransom note 1 front.



3.- Ransom note 1 back.



4.- Ransom note 2 front.



5.- Ransom note 2 back.



6.- Ransom note 3 designation Condon as go-between.



7.- Ransom note 4.



8.- Ransom note 5 front.



9.- Ransom note 5 back.



10.- Ransom note 6 front.



11.- Ransom note 6 back.
