Possible Amelia Earhart remains discovered
NORMAN, Okla. (KABC) -- Bone fragments found on a South Pacific island may be clues as to the fate of Amelia Earhart, who vanished on her attempted flight around the world in 1937.
The three bone fragments, along with an old makeup container, some glass bottles and shells that were cut open were found on a deserted island that lay along the route Earhart was taking. Scientists at the University of Oklahoma hope to extract DNA from the bones to prove Earhart died as a castaway after crashing her plane.
The bones were found near a hollowed out turtle shell leading some to believe the shell was used by a human to collect rain water. Excavation crews believe the site where they were found may have been used as a campsite because of the number of fish and bird bones found there.
It could take months before DNA test results are confirmed.
