Who Killed Lindbergh's Baby?

In the aftermath of his 1927 solo transatlantic flight, Colonel Charles Augustus Lindbergh -–the Lone Eagle –- became the most famous human being on earth. And when he and his lovely wife Anne produced an adorable baby son, Charlie, an eager press quickly dubbed him Little Lindy, or sometimes just the Eaglet. But on the evening of March 1, 1932, Lucky Lindy's luck ran out. Bold kidnappers snatched his baby 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. Now, NOVA is reopening one of the most intriguing, grisly, and confounding crime mysteries of all time, as a team of expert investigators employ state-of-the-art forensic and behavioral science techniques in an effort to determine what really happened to Lindbergh's baby…and why.
