CWN Editor's Note: Searchers who excavated two tombs in the Teutonic Cemetery, inside the Vatican, found no human remains. The excavation, done on July 11, shed no light on the disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi in 1983.

However, the excavation added a new mystery, since the tombs were believed to be the burial places of two German princesses who died in the 19th century. No evidence of their remains was found.
