Huff Post: A new special argues that Amelia Earhart, the world's most famous female pilot and one of the most famous people ever to go missing, survived her final flight, only to be captured by the Japanese, dying in a Saipan prison.

A photo that suggests this was the case was discovered in a previously classified file in the National Archives, and was marked Jaluit Atoll.

The image appears to show a Caucasian man and woman surrounded by Japanese; there is also a Japanese ship seen towing something in the background that appears to be the same size as Earhart's aircraft.

Makes me wonder why the photo would not have been recognized as possibly containing an image of two famous missing people back in the day when the photo first arrived in U.S. hands.

I'm wondering if Earhart's fate will ever truly be known.
