Of course, the Earhart mania of the past week also attracted some skepticism. Mike Campbell is the author of the 2012 publication Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last. The book’s cover features the tagline: “Propaganda Versus Fact in the Disappearance of America’s First Lady of Flight.” “This photo is absurd,” Campbell told Inside Edition. “The claims that are being made about this photo are irresponsible. There is no one in this photo that remotely resembles Amelia Earhart. There is no way to determine that is even a female.” Debate over how Amelia Earhart met her end remains prevalent. However, The Lost Evidence provided untapped historical insight that is impossible to ignore. If Kinney’s theory proves true, Shawn Henry believes that “this could be the biggest government cover-up of all time.”
