Amelia Earhart: Jar Of Freckle Cream Could Be Latest Clue To Solving Mystery

The Amelia Earhart mystery has confused the world for decades, with no viable clues as to what became of the female aviator who took off for a flight around the equator with her navigator Fred Noonan in 1937.

The Daily Mail reports that researchers from the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) announced that they have recovered a glass container on Nikumaroro Island, which was broken into five pieces.

When reassembled, the jar is an exact match to those used by Dr. C. H Berry’s Freckle Ointment, a cream with Earhart may have used to reduce freckles on her face.

ABC News reports that TIGHAR executive director Ric Gillespie stated on Friday:

“We do know that Earhart had freckles and she was conscientious about them.”

While they admit that they do not know for sure that the jar is the freckle cream (considering there is no cream remaining, and there is no label to say it is Dr. C. H Berry’s Freckle Ointment), they are certain that it is from a female cosmetic product.

Amelia Earhart mysteriously vanished on July 2, 1937, while flying over the Pacific Ocean in an attempt to fly around the world. Gillespie, when speaking about the search for answers to the mystery, stated:

“Once something like this gets started, it becomes iconic and it keeps connecting with generation after generation. One thing after another has kept this thing alive.”
