The disappearance of Emanuel Orlandi is one of the most shocking disappearance and mysteries in the history of Italy. In order to grab some evidence of the missing 19th Century German Princess the tomb was pried open at the Holy See Cemetery only to find that it was completely empty. This further erased away any expectation of finding any remains of the teenager who vanished in the year 1983 after leaving the apartment of her family in the Vatican city.
The tombs were opened at the request of the family marking another latest search to find any possible remains. And this instead raised a new set of questions about the remains of the two princesses buried side by side in the tomb in 1836 and 1840 respectively in the Teutonic Holy Field in St Peter’s Basilica.
Orlandi’s family lawyer, Laura Sgro said that the tombs were empty and everyone was amazed with that. The Vatican on the hand said through a statement that the opening of the tombs brought a negative outcome, it said that neither any human remains not funerals were found.
The statement from the Vatican also said that the relatives of the two missing princesses were also informed about the empty tomb. The Vatican said that it had announced of carrying out a forensic examination through a forensic anthropology expert from the Rome University, in order to examine the remains and also prepare them for a DNA testing, however, the arrangement seemed to be of no use with the recovery of no remains.
