Amelia Earhart ‘was executed by the Japanese’: New ‘witness’ account claims aviation pioneer was held in Saipan before being killed – and the US military collected her body and covered it up
- Bill Sablan of Guam said his uncle Tun worked at a Japanese prison in late ’30s
- Tun said 2 American pilots – 1 female – were interned there after being rescued
- That fits a theory that Earhart and her navigator were kept on Saipan island
- Tun said the Japanese, fearing an international incident, had the pair executed
- And the US military retrieved the remains after World War II, but kept quiet
- Others who were on Saipan at the time have related the arrival of the pilot

Aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart and her navigator were executed by the Japanese government to avoid an international incident, and the US played along, a shocking theory claims.
*** and ***
‘So apparently I think they were both killed in Saipan and buried there, and I found out later on as I made my inquiries that… after the war was over, their bodies were exhumed by an American military branch and shipped back to the United States.
‘Now where those bodies are now is somebody’s own question to answer.’
The Daily News suggested that they may have kept quiet in order to avoid an incident of their own.
That contradicts the most popular theory, which is that she crashed and died in the sea on July 2, 1937, after noting poor visibility and her declining gas levels in a series of transmissions earlier that morning.
But it fits a theory proposed on the History Channel special Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence in July that Earthart died at the hands of the Japanese, and that her murder was covered up by the US government.

It’s not like we were friends with the Japanese. We had just nuked them?
Why cover up?
