Amelia Earhart death

Amelia Mary Earhart, born on the 24th of July 1937, was a famous American pilot and aviation pioneer. She remains one of the greatest women pilots in history and was a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross – a medal awarded to any enlisted member of the United States armed forces who has achieved an act of heroism or extraordinary feat while in aerial flight. In 1937, in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe, she disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. Thus began the Amelia Earhart mystery.

The Amelia Earhart mystery is one of the most famous unsolved mysteries of all time. The last time she was seen on land was on July 2, 1937 in Lae, New Guinea. Amelia Earhart and her one man crew Fred Noonan, was preparing to take the last 7,000 miles of their journey. They took off after 3-4 days of rest (they reached Lae on the 29th of June 1937).Their first stop was supposed to have been Howland Island, but due to a series of misunderstandings in radio communication, their radio-assisted navigation failed. On the 5th of January 1939, almost two years after her disappearance, she was declared legally dead.

Controversy surrounded the Amelia Earhart mystery, different rumors and theories began emerging at the time of her disappearance. One of the most prevalent theories regarding the Amelia Earhart mystery was that of aeronautical engineer Elgen Long, and his wife Marie K. Long. First of all, they claimed that the flight plans of the Electra (Earhart and Noonan’s plane) were poorly executed. The couple claimed that the Electra most probably left Lae with a half empty tank of gas. They probably ran out of fuel, then crashed and ditched the plane at sea. The “crash and sink” theory is one of the most widely accepted explanations of the Amelia Earhart mystery.

Another theory was that of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery or TIGHAR. TIGHAR, in an attempt to solve the Amelia Earhart mystery, suggested that Earhart and Noonan could have flown further and landed on a then uninhabited Gardner Island. In 1940, a British colonial officer discovered a skeleton on the island’s southeast corner. Although the remains were later tested and disproven to be that of Earhart’s, there were also a number of archeological artifacts located on the island that still supported TIGHAR’s explanation on the Amelia Earhart mystery. These artifacts included debris possibly from the Electra itself, remains of what could have been Earhart’s footwear, and improvised tools which Earhart and Noonan could have used while trying to survive on the uninhabited island.

There are still a number of outlandish theories on the Amelia Earhart mystery. Some say Earhart could have been an American spy asked to monitor the Japanese colonies. Some say she could have survived the flight, moved to New Jersey, and changed her identity altogether. Whatever happened to Amelia Earhart? I guess we will never know. One thing is for certain, the Amelia Earhart mystery still remains as one of the most fascinating stories of all time.

Elvis Presley death

The world gave the title “King of Rock and Roll” to Elvis Aaron Presley. Also known as the King, Elvis Presley stood a legend in the world of music. Everyone to this day knows who he is. We can still listen to his music on radio programs featuring old songs. People still know Elvis as a sex symbol, featuring physical attractiveness and sexual appeal. Elvis would later live up to his name as the King by dressing up as one, his famous eagle motif outfit that also represented his country, America. At the age of 36, the King was already awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, an award given to those that have contributed outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording. But later in the 70’s, his health would deteriorate and he became drug-dependent. The King’s death would later happen at the early age of 42.

The King of Rock and Roll died on August 16, 1977 partly due to the drugs he took. He took many drugs over his last years in order to reciprocate his now deteriorating health. But despite being weak and drug-dependent, the King still took on many tours and concerts which lead to the King’s death. Plenty of fans saw him force himself to the stage, literally impossible to understand. The once mighty energetic King Elvis has now fallen like an abused peasant. Of course, he wasn’t abused by anyone, but by the drugs he thought he needed to overdose himself with. But nonetheless, the King would not want to admit to the people and himself that he was weak, that he needed a year’s rest or so before hitting the road again. Elvis wanted to serve his fans so much that he had a tour set to begin before he was found lifeless on his bathroom floor. The King’s death not only placed him in peace, but also his friends and supporters that wanted him to take a break from all his sufferings.

Early autopsies done during the King’s death showed that he was killed through the plenty of drugs he took every day. Drug use was heavily implicated as the cause of the King’s death, but during that time, there were plenty of allegations that there was a cover-up involved. The first report released before the first autopsy was finished claimed the King died of cardiac arrhythmia, a condition indentified to be present only in someone who is still alive. The King’s physician, Dr. Nichopoulos, faced criminal liabilities with the death of Elvis because he was found to have prescribed as much as 10,000 doses of sedatives, amphetamines and narcotics to Elvis in the first eight months of the year 1977 alone leading to the King’s death. Years after the King’s death, the autopsy was reopened in 1994. Coroner Dr. Joseph Davis declared that very few data would suggest the King’s death from drug overdose, but plenty of signs showed a sudden heart attack. Some people claimed that Elvis staged his own death to revive his tumbling career. Many other people have claimed to have seen Elvis Presley after his death.

Very few people would want to know the real reason behind the King’s death. Those that saw him in his later years knew he was going to retire in one way or another. In fact, some wanted the King’s death to happen soon before he thoroughly ruins his own image. And so the King’s death put everyone who cared in peace.
