New evidence points to presence of hidden chamber in King Tut's tomb

There probably is a hidden chamber. The scans by Watanabe in 2015 showed a void behind the north wall and west wall. The scans conducted by a NatGeo team, while publicly stated as negative, where in fact inconclusive, as were the scans made by an Italian team. But, that team also scanned from the surface and discovered a void near the tomb which was about as large as the tomb itself. Hawass has said that he excavated all around KV62 to bedrock and found no entrance. So, either this is a large tomb sized and shaped fissure, or, as no entrance can be found on the surface, it is connected by a filled in corridor to KV62.

There are still unexplained issues with the scenes on the north wall of the KV62 burial chamber with the use of two grid patterns and alterations to figures. Reeves contends that while the scenes show Ay burying Tutankhamun, they originaly showed Tutankhamun burying Nefertiti in the guise of Smenkhkare. Having Nefertiti as Smenkhkare is problematic, and looks like it is going to be trashed anyway. But, while Nefertiti, under any name, is not going to be found in a potential extension to KV62, it does look likely that Reeves is right in claiming that there actually is an extension, and what or who is in there remains to be seen, the real Smenkhkare? the missing daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti?, Jimmy Hoffa?  One good thing is that nobody has to smash down the painted north wall if a corridor can be confirmed, as access can be made from the unpainted treasury. I would not be surprised if a small test hole has not already been drilled.
