A skull and other bone fragments found on a remote Pacific island has sparked enormous interest among historians.

That's because the bones may, in fact, belong to the famous female aviator Amelia Earhart.

According to CNN, the bones were found found on Nikumaroro, a remote island in the western Pacific Ocean, in 1940.

But it wasn't until a 2018 study when people began to suspect they could very well belong to Earhart.

The bones' measurements closely matched those of the missing aviator.

Now, South Florida University forensic anthropologist Dr. Erin Kimmerle will use DNA testing to confirm the theory.
