Here's what I think about: What if Sylvia, by some crazy turn of events, is actually Amelia Earhart? And the partially embalmed Sylvester might be the body of Kansas Sheriff Thomas Gannon who mysteriously disappeared in 1868, or James William Boyd, the Confederate officer said to have been killed in place of John Wilkes Booth, who was supposed to rendezvous with others in Mexico but never showed up. Wouldn't it be crazy if these bodies displayed to the public for centuries were actually famous missing people, and under our noses the whole time? (Seriously, that is what I think about. Maybe I should write a book about it. :)
