    Amelia Earhart's remains found (99% certainty). She died as a castaway on a Pacific Island.

    Didn't they recently have a special where someone said this was the most likely outcome?

    I remember reading about this in high school back in 2002 as the most likely outcome. I didn't know there was still a debate about this other than the occasional family guy joke.

    Oh my god I just picked up a biography of her a couple weeks ago and read the parts about where she probably died and where they looked for her remains. Of course I was aware of her tragic story before but I was trying to learn new details. Now the coincidental proximity of reading that book and this coming up is freaking me out a little bit lol.

    It's depressing to think that her infamous flight ended like that. It's also too bad the bones were lost, they would have provided 100% conclusive evidence today. The entire thing is just very upsetting overall.

    That's what she gets for letting a woman drive.

    Wow. I think I saw that special were they showed artifacts that most likely belonged to her. One of the greatest mysteries of all time is now solved.

    May she rest in peace.

    TBF, it's not like they have proof. The bones were lost. The only evidence is that some guy says that the bone's previously measured lengths approximately match what they assume her bone lengths were.

    It's not like they DNA tested them against some living relative or something. This is just an academic pet project that some guy paid to publish in a super crappy journal and a bunch of reporters wrote stories about it because they either don't care that it's bullshit or are too stupid to tell.

    Doesn't really matter, though. She was born in 1897 so she'd be dead by now anyway.

    Finally a real death, unfortunately.

    The world just lost a brilliant man.

    By any measure he should have been dead 50 years ago; truly a remarkable life for a remarkable intellect.
