In the News this Week: Amelia Earhart

Bones that were located on a remote South Pacific island may belong to Amelia Earhart, according to bone measurement analysis.

Measurements conducted on the bones in 1940 were thought to belong to a man. However, using recent forensic anthropology techniques, a University of Tennessee professor finds that the bones are closely comparable to those of Amelia’s.

The bones disappeared years ago, which limits this analysis to the data collected initially. Hopefully the bones reappear, and any question as to whom they belonged to can be put to rest.
