It's been long thought that Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific Ocean July 2, 1937. The only hitch to this theory is that no ever found her, navigator Fred Noonan or the plane. Crashing into the ocean with out a trace has left conspiracy theorist a field day for decades. A new photo, found in U.S. archives, suggest that Earhart actually crashed on Marshal Islands before being captured by the Japanese military. Two forensic scientists examined the photo and concluded that it is "very likely" that Earhart and Noonan were on the dock of Jaluit Harbor. A History Channel special dissect evidence that Earhart survived the crash but died in a Japanese prison. "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence" airs Sunday.
