Wait a minute, that now-viral picture of Amelia Earhart might not prove *anything*
The plot thickens! One of the biggest mysteries of our century is what happened to Amelia Earhart and a new documentary made claims that Earhart had in fact lived through the presumed crash of her airplane into the Pacific Ocean. But now, History Channel is investigating a new claim about Earhart.
We just don’t know what to believe anymore!
The mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance in 1937 has long fascinated the world. (New Radicals even pondered this question as one of life’s big mysteries, while claiming “Someday We’ll Know.” But will we?!) We thought we’d know last week when new claims arose in the documentary Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence on History. A photo showed her seemingly alive and well after the crash that supposedly killed her. And what did they theorize happened? She was thought to have been captured by the Japanese.
So, maybe we would finally know?!
Now, don’t get too excited. A Japanese blogger published a piece disputing the claim, saying that the photo didn’t actually show Earhart at all and was taken in 1935 — two years before her supposed crash. Oops! History announced that they’re investigating the claims. Why must they break our hearts again?! Just please find the answers!
Here’s what History had to say:
Okay, so maybe New Radicals were wrong and we will *never* know what happened to Amelia Earhart. But in the meantime, you can watch the documentary Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence on demand until August 14th. Who knows, maybe you’ll be the one to finally solve this mystery.
