Bruno Richard HAUPTMANN



Bruno R. Hauptmann, charged with extortion in the Lindbergh case, is shown as he appeared
in Morrisania Court in the Bronx, N. Y., Sept. 24th, immediately before a Bronx County
Grande Jury received the case.

The surly, unemployed German carpenter, is still wearing the same grey suit he wore when
first taken into custody. His belt and shoe laces have been taken from him to prevent any
attempt at suicide. His tie also has been removed.
September 24, 1934.

There have been many pictures of Bruno Hauptmann in a sullen mood, and few of them showing
a slight smile. This is the first picture to show the defendant flashing a full happy smile. It was
made at the last session of the week at Flemington. January 19, 1935.
