A mystery that has fueled speculation for 80 years is taking a new turn based on evidence to be unveiled in the new History documentary “Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence.”
The two-hour special premieres Sunday, July 9. Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared on July 2, 1937, and were never found.
“Now, 80 years later, newly uncovered evidence from within U.S. government archives may finally bring this case to a close,” History says in a release today about the program. “Former FBI Executive Assistant Director Shawn Henry investigates new, shocking evidence supporting that Earhart survived her final flight, crash-landed in the Marshall Islands, and was captured by the Japanese military — dying in their custody on Saipan.”
