And the mystery deepens. Somethin' outta a movie.

Vatican finds bones, deepening mystery in search for girl who disappeared 36 years ago

The Vatican reported a new twist Saturday in the mysterious, decades-old disappearance of a teenage girl.

Two sets of bones were found near the tombs of two 19th-century German princesses, raising hopes that they could be the remains of 15-year-old Emanuela Orlandi, the daughter of a Vatican employee, a Vatican official said. The tombs were opened earlier this week and found to be empty.

The bones were discovered as staffers were inspecting other spots the princesses may have been moved to in the cemetery of the Pontifical Teutonic College, Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti said.

Those inspections “have so far led to the identification of two ossuaries placed beneath the floor of an area inside the Pontifical Teutonic College,” Gisotti said. “These are closed by a trap door, and these ossuaries have been sealed for subsequent examination and possible retrieval of material stored there.”

The trap door will be formally opened next week.

Gisotti said the remains of the princesses could have been moved during an expansion of the college in the 1960s and 70s.

Orlandi vanished in 1983 after leaving her family's Vatican City apartment to go to a music lesson in Rome. Her father was a lay employee of the Holy See.

Her case has been one of the enduring mysteries of the Vatican, kept alive by the Italian media and a quest by her brother to find answers and closure. Over the years, her disappearance has been linked to everything from the plot to kill St. John Paul II to the financial scandal of the Vatican bank and Rome's criminal underworld.

The last major twist in the case came in 2012 when forensic police exhumed the body of a reputed mobster from the crypt of a Roman basilica in hopes of finding Orlandi's remains as well. The search turned up no link.

The new search was undertaken in the cemetery after Orlandi's family received a tip that she might be buried there.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

It seems like, every few years, somebody finds something at the Vatican...They should be doing a continuous, revolving excavation and find everything...

If I had to guess I would guess that some pervy Vatican priest raped and killed her.

Moving the goalposts fallacy:

Description: Demanding from an opponent that he or she address more and more points after the initial counter-argument has been satisfied refusing to concede or accept the opponent’s argument.

You are guilty of this quite often in this forum.
