Description

In 1956, Angelo LaMarca abducted Peter Weinberger and left a ransom note for the baby's parents. A cat-and-mouse game with the Weinbergers and the police ensued while 1-month-old Peter's life hung in the balance. Multiple ransom demands were made, but the drops were never picked up.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss this case from the 1950s. The Weinbergers weren't famous or rich, so in that way, this kidnapping differed greatly from the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping case. But, there were some similarities as well. The hunt for the abductor relied heavily on handwriting analysis. When the truth came out, people were horrified to learn the true details and the motive behind the abduction. LaMarca's actions devastated two families.
