The Kidnapping of the first son of aviator Charles Lindbergh became the crime of the century and defined "media circus." As much as the world in the 1930's loved "Lucky Lindy" for his flight from New York to Paris, so the world despised the kidnapper of the Lindbergh's child. Although the crime occurred in New Jersey, the FBI maintained complete files on the case, because ransom money crossed state lines. These are the complete, never-published, FBI files on the Lindbergh baby kidnapping. The files end with the single word PENDING, as the case was still in progress. This is time stopped in 1934.
