Everyone believes Adolph Hitler died in a bunker in Berlin at the end of WWII.
Now it would appear that may not be correct.
The actual disposition of his body was shrouded in secrecy. No photos exist that show his corpse. The Russians have been in possession of a skull fragment complete with a bullet hole which they produced as proof Hitler died in the bunker.
A recent study of the skull has revealed astounding evidence that the skull actually belonged to a woman not a man.
Nick Bellantoni a Connecticut archaeologist and bone specialist flew to Moscow to examine the skull fragment.
The samples were then flown back to Connecticut. At the university's centre for applied genetics, Linda Strausbaugh closed her lab for three days to work exclusively on the Hitler project.

Until now. In the wake of new revelations, the histories of Hitler's death may need to be rewritten – and left open-ended. American researchers claim to have demonstrated that the skull fragment, secretly preserved for decades by Soviet intelligence, belonged to a woman under 40, whose identity is unknown. DNA analyses performed on the bone, now held by the Russian State Archive in Moscow, have been processed at the genetics lab of the University of Connecticut. The results, broadcast in the US by a History Channel documentary, Hitler's Escape, astonished scientists.
According to Connecticut archaeologist and bone specialist Nick Bellantoni, it was clear from the outset that something was amiss. "The bone seemed very thin; male bone tends to be more robust," he said. "And the sutures where the skull plates come together seemed to correspond to someone under 40." In April 1945 Hitler turned 56."
So what actually happened to Hitler? Did he escape? Did he and Eva live out their lives in secrecy? Who helped him? How was it kept under raps for so long?
