A graduate of Duke University and The Wharton Graduate School of Business, Robert Zorn had long enjoyed his career at Trammell Crow Company and at two software companies he founded in Dallas, Texas. His father had shared a secret with him that he had kept quiet for many years – that as a boy, he had inadvertently witnessed his Bronx neighbor John Knoll conspiring with Bruno Richard Hauptmann to kidnap the Lindbergh baby. After making a promise on his father’s deathbed to continue the investigation, Robert left the business world and embarked on a four-year research odyssey in search of the truth.
Robert currently resides in Montclair, New Jersey, where he lectures on the Lindbergh kidnapping. He continues to research the case full-time.
