Trivia (6)

Son of the famous aviator Charles A. Lindbergh.
His kidnapping and murder became the biggest news event in the United States since Charles Sr. had flown solo across the Atlantic.
The result of the kidnapping was The Lindbergh Law, making kidnapping a Federal crime.
On the night of his kidnapping, his parents had gone out and left him with a sitter. They were going to take young Charles with them but he had a cold and stayed home.
His death was the inspiration for the British author Agatha Christie's murder mystery novel brought to the silver screen as Murder on the Orient Express (1974).
He died as a result of a blow to the back of his head. Though he was found several months after his kidnapping, coroners at the time estimated that he had been dead since the night he was kidnapped.
