Charles Lindbergh Kidnap case

Grant said his father had heard another man say he saw Hauptman in a Bronx bakery on the night of the kidnapping but that the man had refused to testify, and the Grants had been threatened. Police say his story is that he escaped his kidnapers in a traffic jam, when their auto was stopped. (AP Photo/ Tom Sande)
