    On March 1st, 1932, the nursemaid Betty Gow brought the twenty-month-old, to the nursery for his evening meal. Gow then dressed the baby in a flannel shirt she had fashioned that very evening and placed a store-bought shirt overtop (Fisher 1999: 3).
    Seventy-two days after the kidnapping, On May 12th , the badly decomposed body was discovered two miles from the Lindberg home in a wooded area (Fisher, 1999: 21). William Allen, a truck driver walked approximately fifty feet into the wooded area along Princeton Hopewell road in order to privately relieve himself. He found the corpse lying in a shallow grave. The boy’s skin was black, leathery and wet from the rain. The hands were missing, and his left leg was missing from the knee down (Fisher 1999: 22).

    A tentative identification was made by police using the home-made flannel undershirt. Later, Gow and Lindbergh made a positive identification at the morgue. At this time, Charles Lindbergh Jr. was identified by his teeth, hair, uniquely overlapping toes and dimple on his chin.
    The autopsy was to be conducted by the Trenton county physician Dr. Charles H. Mitchell, however, due to severe arthritis, he had to walk the mortician Walter Swayze through the entire procedure. This information was withheld until 1977 (Fisher, 1999: 23).

    Forensic Pathology
    A forensic pathologist typically performs a forensic autopsy in order to determine the cause of death, mechanism, time and manner of death through the examination of a corpse. He/She is concerned with the study of medicine as it connects to the application of criminal law (Lyle, D., 2004: 133). The Pathologist may also examine the victim’s clothing for trace evidence, and note condition of the clothing itself.

    ...
    Baby Lindbergh was discovered in an advanced stage of decomposition; however, Lindberg and Gow were able to make a positive identification, based on the toddler’s uniquely overlapping toes, his nose, and dimple. The police were able to initially assume that the body they had discovered was in fact Baby Lindbergh, based on the one of a kind, home-made, flannel night shirt he was wearing when they discovered the body.
    Baby Lindberg may have never been positively identified, if it was not for the flannel shirt he was wearing or his overlapping toes. Today, Baby Lindbergh’s identity could be confirmed by matching Baby Lindbergh’s DNA profile drawn from traces of organic materials left behind in his home, to the body, using tissue, skin cells, fingernails, bones, or teeth (Koehler & Wecht, 2006).
    Forensic Entomology
    A forensic entomologist studies the arrival of insects on decomposing remains to aid in criminal investigations. Insects can be useful in determining time of death, for the reason that they arrive at a body after death in predictable stages. These patterns can very greatly based on a variety of variables including, temperature, location, and region.

    Forensic Odontology
    When a body is in an advanced state of decomposition, a coroner or forensic pathologist may request a forensic odontologist determine the identity of a corpse. A forensic odontologist is a dentist who applies medical knowledge to death investigations and other criminal matters. They may be able to provide identity, through the ability to recognize and compare patterns of the deceased’s teeth. ( Koehler, S. & Wecht: 142).
