Describes how forensic scientist Arthur Koehler's work convicted Bruno Richard Hauptmann in the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr.

Perseus Publishing
The Sherlock Holmes-like forensic scientist helped convict Bruno Hauptmann for the murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr.

Before there was CSI and NCIS, there was a mild-mannered forensic scientist whose diligence would help solve the 20th century's greatest crime. Arthur Koehler was called the "Sherlock Holmes of his era" for his work tracing the ladder used to kidnap Charles Lindbergh's son to Bruno Hauptmann's attic and garage. A gripping tale of science and true crime.
