Amelia Earhart
mysteriously vanished while flying over the Pacific Ocean 
on July 2, 1937 attempting
a record flight around the world at the equator. 

 

Glass fragments make up a nearly complete jar identical to the style used by Dr. C. H Berry's Freckle Ointment, a concoction marketed in the early 20th century that was supposed to make freckles fade (it was 11 percent mercury).

(Discovery News) A small cosmetic jar offers more circumstantial evidence that
the legendary aviator, Amelia Earhart, died on an uninhabited island in the
southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati.

Found broken in five pieces, the ointment pot was collected on Nikumaroro Island
by researchers of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (
TIGHAR),
which has long been investigating the last, fateful flight taken by Earhart 75 years
ago.

When reassembled,‭ the glass fragments ‬make up a nearly complete jar identical
in shape to the ones used by Dr.‭ ‬C.‭ ‬H Berry’s Freckle Ointment. The ointment was marketed in the early‭ ‬20th century as a concoction guaranteed to make freckles
fade.

"It’s well documented Amelia had freckles and disliked having them," Joe Cerniglia,
the TIGHAR researcher who spotted the freckle ointment as a possible match, told Discovery News.
