Please don't try to contact Margaret.
 

Seriously?!! You jumped right to that conclusion?

Just being careful.

We've talked to her several times.

And...?

She doesn't have any information that is useful to our investigation.

This from Josh Gates' Twitter page:

Gates is on the right.  Presumably the other gentleman is John Grey, the person who found the box/skull in 1969.

Gates' Twitter page says he's in Peru today.  Guess nothing came of the bones find.

And...?

And she doesn't have the bones or either of the boxes.

And she hasn't seen anything in her father's correspondence or memorabilia that talk about the case.

Here is the biography she wrote about her father.  It is a short, but worthwhile read.  It helped me understand the WPHC and Fiji.

I'm sure you're right. How foolish of me to think that correspondence or memorabilia might in some way have an address associated with it.

Oh my I just connected some dots, this is the "TV documentary producer" that this lead came from? I know I'm judging the messenger here, but has anyone here actually seen his work? "Documentary" isn't necessarily the most appropriate term for what he produces.  Perhaps the precis from Travel Channel will give the picture: 

"Expedition Unknown chronicles the adventures of Josh Gates as he investigates iconic mysteries across the globe. Gates begins by interviewing key eyewitnesses and uncovering recent developments in the story, then springboards into a fully immersive exploration. This authentic, roughshod adventure leads Gates closer to the truth behind these unanswered global enigmas, such as the disappearance of Amelia Earhart’s plane.

Josh Gates is an adventurer and avid explorer with a unique brand of humor and passion for off-the-map excursions."

Hopefully those "off-the-map excursions" don't include Niku! And, no I'm not suggesting this necessarily effects the potential veracity of the new bones lead.

Josh Gates seems to have all the earmarks of a first class phony.

Oh, I don't know, I think your just jealous.  You wish you could "springboard into fully immersive exploration" and lead a life of "authentic roughshod adventure."  Come to think of it I wish I could too, but only if I can have a cool theme song. Now where did I put John Williams' email address...

Oh the bitter injustice of it all. Well funded tripe versus... Any way, happy Friday.

What's immersive or authentic about it?  It's TV... more like saturated with fertilizer.  ;D

Sorry, forgot about the guano pit incident. But that still leaves "authentic roughshod adventure."


I'll stop, I promise.

This looks like a perfect opportunity to go completely off-topic and give you all a sneak peek at a brand new line of T-shirts we're calling "Reality Wear."  Yes, TIGHAR has gone "edgy," or maybe "cynical," but definitely "smart ass."  Let me know what you think.

Patience.  Let's see how these shirts sell.  This is an experiment.

I have a strong recollection of seeing a TV documentary, decades ago, wherein a film crew went to Fiji to investigate this.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to get any source to take my investigation seriously, no responses, no replies.

It seemed fantastic at the time, but the image I recall was the film crew walking down a corridor in a Fiji institution and a curator sliding out a drawer to reveal parts of a skeleton and saying "those are the remains of Amelia Earhart.

Courtesy of Youtube I've been able to find much video that I saw only once on TV and never seen advertised for repeat. It's provided a good opportunity to contrast memory with actual, provided Youtube holds the same release version.

Recently  I found and posted up about Wings of Hope which is one example.

I found the documentary a must for those who are interested in air crash survival.
