On October 2018 renovations were being carried out in the Vatican close to the Villa Borghese. Builders were restoring a floor in the janitor's lodge and unexpectedly a human skeleton was found. Immediately suspicions were raised, questioning if this was the remains of Italian teenagers which disappeared several decades ago. Eventually the search lead to the tombs of two German princesses.
Construction workers made a macabre discovery May 2016 when they were renovating a garage for a home located in Sn Francisco.
Underneath a cement slab they unearthed a child's coffin measuring 3.5 feet, made of lead and bronze. Through two windows placed on the lid, a small, blonde toddler girl could be seen. She was perfectly preserved, dressed in a white dress and holding a rose.
Her elaborate, airless coffin had no markings or plaque to say who she was.
