CWN Editor's Note: The Italian senate has authorized a parliamentary investigation into the case of Emanuela Orlandi, the 15-year-old girl who disappeared in 1983.

But calls for a new investigation were set aside when the girl’s brother, Pietro Orlandi, drew outrage by suggesting that Pope John Paul II had been involved in her abduction—a suggestion that Pope Francis dismissed as “rubbish.”
