Amelia Earhart eaten by crabs

Gruesome but fascinating story breaking today about the fate of US aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart.
Earhart and Fred Noonan were trying to be the first to circumnavigate the globe at the equator but vanished on July 2 1937.
It seems they may have made an emergency landing on a tiny Pacific island only to be eaten by giant crabs a few months later.
The Earhart Project has been conducting an archaeological survey of Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro in the Republic of Kiribati.
They have found convincing evidence that might just prove Earhart met her fate there.
It should certainly help fund next season's investigation.
