Vatican bones 'too old' to be missing girl

Investigators in Rome are still struggling to determine what happened to missing teenager Emanuela Orlandi.
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 they found no sign of any remains whatsoever.
It later emerged that the bones had been moved during structural work at the site.

Now following an analysis of the remains, investigators have revealed that the bones - which date back to the 19th Century - are in fact too old to be those of the missing girl.

Dissatisfied with this conclusion, a representative of the Orlandi family has since called for a more detailed analysis.

The Vatican police are now thought to be in the possession of the remains pending a court ruling.

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.
