Thirty-six years after the disappearance of 15-year old Italian girl Emanuela Orlandi, the Vatican announced on Tuesday that two graves located in the German cemetery within Vatican grounds will be opened on July 11, following the allegations made by her family that her body is there.
The Vatican has for the first time opened its own investigation into the case of Emanuela Orlandi, a 15-year-old Vatican citizen who disappeared in the summer of 1983.
An unresolved Vatican mystery concerning the disappearance of a 15-year-old girl in 1983 is a warning against accumulating further mysteries, including on the McCarrick case.
News round-up on Friday in Italy.
According to local news outlets the bones that were found on Vatican property at the end of October do not belong two Italian girls who disappeared in the 1980s.
