On this date, 82 years ago, one of the most notorious child kidnappings shocked the world. On March 1st, 1931, the 20-month old son of famous Aviator Charles Lindbergh was stolen from his crib in the middle of the night. One man was sent to the electric chair for the kidnapping and murder of the boy, but for over eight decades the cold-case remained largely unsolved as additional conspirators were never brought to justice.
