Vatican mystery: bones found in hunt for girl

Two sets of bones have been discovered by authorities searching for missing girl Emanuela Orlandi in Rome.
The 15-year-old, who disappeared on her way home from a music lesson in 1983, has recently been the subject of a renewed search effort centered around the Vatican's Teutonic cemetery.

Her family had received an anonymous letter suggesting that her remains may have been interred there within the vicinity of a statue of an angel holding a book.

In light of this information, officials exhumed the graves of two princesses at the cemetery - Princess Sophie von Hohenlohe who had died in 1836 and Princess Carlotta Federica of Mecklenburg who had died in 1840 - however to everyone's surprise the graves contained no remains whatsoever.

At the time, the missing bones had left officials scratching their heads, but soon afterwards it was revealed that the remains had likely been moved during structural work at the site.
Sure enough - two sets of remains have since been found under a nearby stone slab.

While they have yet to be conclusively identified, they are very likely to be those of the two princesses.

There is also the chance, however unlikely, that one of them could be Emanuela herself.

Update: Vatican bones 'too old' to be missing girl

Oops. Looks like they found the princesses "nearby".  (That's their story and they're sticking to it.)    https://www.dw.com/en/vatican-missing-teenager-mystery-bones-found-after-all/a-49580352-0

You may have a point there, paid big to bury them there. I wonder if they were catholic. just a thought.

Yes.  All the royal European families are Catholic (except England since Henry the VIII) and non-Catholics are forbidden from being buried in a Catholic cemetery.

Right. That was the reason why I thought they may have taken the money and not befoul the burial ground. Just a thought. A bad one.

Probably they put aside the bone of the princess for a restoration of the bomb and forgotten to put them back...

Based on what?  Lots of Ted Bundy's victims (serial killer, USA) have never been found but there's no doubt they are dead. Ted didn't do sex trafficking.

They were just moved during a renovation. They found them. Mystery solved.
