I really don't understand why this is still considered a mystery.
In 1940, partial remains were found on an island... that's only four years after she vanished. The remains were those of a white woman with Earhart's measurements, found alongside a pocket knife, a broken cosmetics jar, a piece of glass from an airplane windshield and the same exact type of navigational system Earhart had been using.
This article was posted on the Fox News website, but there's no clear indication how Amelia Earhart's death was President Obama's fault.
It's okay, Fox's Family Guy already solved the mystery:
Mrs. Lindbergh: Charles, he's only 6 months old.
Charles Lindbergh: Honey, would you relax? God, I flew across the Atlantic by myself. I'm a national treasure, for God's sake. I think I know how to...ah! Oh, God! Oh, God! All right. He was kidnapped. You call the police. I'll write the ransom note.
Mrs. Lindbergh: What about Amelia? She saw everything!
A fragment of Amelia Earhart's lost aircraft has been identified to a high degree of certainty for the first time ever since her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937, in a record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.
New research strongly suggests that a piece of aluminum aircraft debris recovered in 1991 from Nikumaroro, an uninhabited atoll in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati, does belong to Earhart’s twin-engined Lockheed Electra.
Social media seems more interested in this than the Jack the Ripper solution. And I thought "eaten by coconut crabs" was the end all.
When the list of potential suspects is filled with lords and royalty, and the true culprit turns out to be an insane barber living in a hovel, I guess it can feel a little anticlimatic and not very buzzworthy.
Investigators claim long-lost photo shows Amelia Earhart after her plane vanished
A new documentary claims a photo from 1937 discovered in the National Archives shows aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan in Japanese custody, indicating the pair might have survived when their plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean.
