More About This Book

Overview

Rich with little-known details in the infamous Lindbergh kidnapping case, the day Machine-Gun Kelly coined the term "G-Men," and the events and trails-of-evidence in a variety of kidnappings, Not Released Unharmed- Kidnap Victims offers a fascinating look at historical highlights of American crime and investigation.
Written by retired FBI Special Agent Donald L. Smith, the book is a survey of tragedy juxtaposed with rescue and relief; of pursuit and capture; of justice and injustice. In these stories, some kidnap victims survive, some do not.

A $50,000 ransom was paid but he was not released. About a week afterward, one of the kidnappers shot him, then turned and shot his own partner.
He buried both in the same grave. · A boy kidnapped from his school by a woman claiming to be his aunt. Ransom was paid, but the boyhad been killed right after his abduction. The kidnappers were apprehended, tried and executed. The kicker-over half of the $600,000 was never found, though one vehemently claimed the money was in his possession when he was arrested by two police officers.
