Information indicating that Isidor Fisch, whose name was brought into the Lindbergh case when Bruno Richard Hauptmann declared Fisch gave him the ransom money found in the Hauptmann garage, was innocent of the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby is in the hands of the Department of Justice, P. M. Breed, special department operative studying Fisch’s activities admitted yesterday.

Breed’s admission followed questioning of members of the Chrzanover Young Men’s Association, to which Fisch belonged from 1927 until his departure for Germany where he died last March. According to the testimony of his lodge brothers Fisch was a furrier but so poor in 1932 that he had to be given a sweater and ten dollars towards his passage to Germany.
