Description

During a time of great hardship, people often turn to drastic means in order to survive. During the depression, kidnappings rose in popularity as a way to make some easy money. One of the most famous of these was when the young toddler of the well known aviator and inventor, Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne, was kidnapped and murdered. And while there were notable occurrences throughout the nation, Washington state had a string of kidnapping cases that occurred between 1935 and 1936. The victims' stories would make for sensational news headlines across the globe.

We’re going back to the 1930’s for a 2-part look at a wave of kidnappings, or “snatchings” as they were referred to, in Tacoma, Washington. During these 18 months, there would be three kidnappings that had the town, even the nation, gripped with fear of what the outcome would be.
