If I had a nickel for every wacky theory that came my way...
"Giant Coconut Crabs with Claws the Size of Texas likely Ate Her Remains!"
|Cranky big crab.|
This is the latest twist on a twist. In July Tighar reported that their cadaver dogs had found human remains. In June they were reporting that coconut crabs were threatening their cadaver dogs. Couple of days ago, oops, the body must have been dragged off by crabs.
Um... ok. Yes, we've all seen the video of a coconut crab executing a pesky seabird. Even that "science alert" news got the headline "Giant Crab Eats Innocent Seabird!" (As opposed to "Guilty Seabird Taken Down by Law Abiding Crab!" Who knows if the seabird is innocent? Maybe he was stealing from the crab... but I digress...)
Yes, I've seen Coconut Crabs. In the Marianas as well. In fact on Saipan in particular.
Why is that important?
Well, over 200 eyewitnesses claim that they saw Amelia Earhart, Fred Noonan and the Electra after it disappeared on July 3rd, 1937.
|Saw her as a captive on the back of a |
Japanese truck in 1944. Parked for 30 minutes
in front of him. "Not something you'd forget."
|Saw her on the back of the same truck in 1944 a mile away.|
|Former Congressman, his father saw her come ashore in 1937|
That doesn't include the US Marines who claim they found the Electra in a hanger on Saipan, the ones who claim they saw it flown, the ones who claim that saw it in the hangar, the ones who claim they heard officers talking about "Amelia Earhart's plane" or the ones who claim they saw it taken out to the runway and destroyed and buried by US forces.
Or the US Marine who found her briefcase and passport "dry as a bone."
|A US Vet, his dad saw her incarcerated in prison in 1937|
Is that with or without shoes?
|This army vet went with a Jeep full of GIs to the|
airfield to see "Amelia Earhart's airplane" in a hangar.
Same hangar others claim it was in.
|His mom tended to her wounds in the hospital onSaipan.|
|SAW HER as she was escorted onto Saipan.|
Story hasn't changed in 70 years.
|Navy vet worked with a stevedore who claimed|
he pulled the plane off of Mili.
|Bob Wallack found her briefcase. Dry as a bone.|
|This briefcase. Which another US Marine saw as well.|
And both claimed it LOOKED JUST LIKE THIS ONE.
If you go to Saipan some day, and I hope you do, you'll see that the island is not over run by them. There are some in the woods, up in the hills, but not running around the island snapping up birds or dead bodies. Wishful thinking perhaps. But none on film yet.
