The Lindbergh Syndrome is presented here as a societal ailment. Even as we ask, “Where have all our heroes gone?” we at once indulge in what Mark Twain in 1873 first identified as Gilded Age conceits...frivolousness, laissez-faire economic policies, anti-intellectualism, and public gullibility toward business and government malfeasance. Because Gilded Ages lead to cynicism and social decay, this book hopes its modest goal of calling attention to their existence will help American citizens avoid them in the future...and in the process, be able once again to recognize the difference between a hero and a celebrity.

john: I agree, Stella. In addition to the buzzards there were many wild animals scavenging about in the Jersey woods. They'd have torn the child's body to ribbons

truthseeker777: To answer your question my aunt worked at Stockley and retired from there after many years. She was absolutely an honest person and if she was an embellished story teller don't you think she would have continued with it when I questioned her later?

truthseeker777: As best I can determine she may have began working at Stockley in the mid to late 40s. I believe she was head of housekeeping and after some time became involved in "placing" functioning patients with families in the area. Possibly even with no formality.

truthseeker777: I agree there had to be others who knew the true identity of the child. I have asked all family members I can think of if my aunt ever discussed or even mentioned the kidnapping and found nothing was ever said. I believe she feared for her safety.

Michael: Buck: 2 Guards strapped him in and it took 4 to remove him after the electrocution. They weren't named to protect them from death-threats. Having said that I seem to remember a name mentioned "somewhere," possibly in a letter to Gov. Hoffman.
