There have been bones and girly stuff found on the Island of Nikumaroro in the far Pacific by a crack team of forensic historical aircraft researchers about to make a major announcement.
This reporter just returned from the nearby island of Uku-Uku.
There many of the locals had the oral history of the tragic demise of Amelia and her hard drinking Irish American navigator Fred Noonan.
It seems that Japanese naval investigators landed on Nukumaroro and found both the Aviatrix and her navigator.
They proceeded to treat them as spys for America and treated them with little hospitality.
The second week they found Fred's stash of fine Irish whiskey hidden in the wreckage of the Electra and guzzled it until fall down drunk.
The oral recordings were researched by North Korean expert Koh Koo.
Koo stated that "those lousy Japs performed bunga bunga torture on the pair then made them into sushi with sticky rice and eel."
