Vatican Closes Case On Missing Teen

From CRUX:

Forensic study of remains may shed light on young woman's disappearance

Because all of the human bones found in a Vatican cemetery last summer were at least 100 years old, the Vatican City State court officially closed its investigation into the possibility that some of the remains belonged to a teenage woman missing for more than 30 years.

However, a statement from the Vatican press office April 30 said that the judge’s decision still would allow the family of the young woman, Emanuela Orlandi, “to proceed privately with possible additional tests on some of the fragments already found and preserved in sealed containers” at the Vatican police office. Orlandi, a Vatican City resident and the daughter of a Vatican employee, disappeared in Rome June 22, 1983, when she was 15.ShareTwee
