The Vatican announced on Tuesday that it will open two tombs in the centuries-old cemetery next week and test the DNA in an attempt to solve the case of a Vatican employee’s missing teenage daughter who disappeared 36 years ago.
Emanuela Orlandi was 15-years-old when she left for a flute lesson in central Rome in 1983 and never returned home. The case received new publicity last summer when an attorney for the Orlandi family received an anonymous letter with a tip. The letter suggested that the girl might be buried at the small Teutonic Cemetery where German and Austrian nationals are buried on Vatican grounds, Reuters reported. “Look where the angel is pointing,” the letter said, referencing a marble statue on an angel above the German prince’s tomb, The London Times reported. The angel holds a sheet bearing the words “Rest in Peace.”
