I sure hope not.
So take your attitude toward the Jimmy Hoffa saga, magnify it by a factor of one million, and you have become one of those poor souls who flies halfway around the world, digs up a bone fragment, and thinks it might be Amelia Earhart.
For the love of God:
Amelia Earhart's final resting place?I'm thinking it's probably a bone from Bigfoot's big foot.
By Alan Boyle, MSNBC
Newly reported evidence adds support to the claim that famed aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, spent the last days of their lives on Nikumaroro Island in the southwest Pacific Ocean, seen here from more than 400 miles up.
Since the 1980s, The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, or TIGHAR, has been engaged in a search effort called The Earhart Project. TIGHAR focused on Nikumaroro Island and commissioned the satellite photo in 2001. The uninhabited coral atoll, part of the Pacific island republic of Kiribati, is about 300 miles southeast of Howland Island, the place Earhart was trying to get to when she and Noonan disappeared.
Now TIGHAR says it has recovered bone fragments from a remote area of Nikumaroro that may have come from a human. DNA tests to be conducted in Oklahoma could confirm whether the bones were indeed of human origin or instead came from a sea turtle. There's even a chance the bones could be genetically linked to Earhart. Other artifacts found on the island — including bits of rouge, a broken mirror from a woman's compact and bottles with melted bottoms — support the view that Earhart and Noonan could have lived there for a while as castaways.

So these archaeologists (?) find a bone and some trash and they leap to the conclusion that the bone might be human and that, therefore, it might belong to Amelia Earhart, and that the trash might very well have been hers.
I feel sorry for these poor researchers. How pathetic their lives must be. I hope for their sakes that the bone fragment is hers. May they then rest in peace.
The odds, however ...
