Famed US pilot Amelia Earhart’s disappearance over the Pacific Ocean has been one of the most absorbing mysteries of the 20th century. Earhart revolutionalised aviation by becoming the first female to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, but during her attempt to fly around the world, she mysteriously vanished on July 2, 1937. While she was declared dead in absentia on January 5, 1939, no one ever really knew what happened to her. But we may be close to answering that question now and apparently, we had been sitting on it all along.
As per University of Tennessee professor Richard L. Jantz’s new study titled ‘Amelia Earhart and the Nikumaroro Bones
A 1941 Analysis versus Modern Quantitative Techniques‘, remains discovered on Nikumaroro island in the Pacific back in 1941, which were earlier known to be a man’s bones, are a 99 percent match for Earhart. A woman’s shoe and a Benedictine liqueur bottle recovered also back these claims. So, while this is not definitive proof, this is the “most convincing argument” yet.
