DNA confirms IDs of czar’s children, ending mystery

AP:

For nine decades after Bolshevik executioners gunned down Czar Nicholas II and his family, there were no traces of the remains of Crown Prince Alexei, the hemophiliac heir to Russia’s throne.

Some said the delicate 13-year-old had somehow survived and escaped; others believed his bones were lost in Russia’s vastness, buried in secret amid fear and chaos as the country lurched into civil war.

Now an official says DNA tests have solved the mystery by identifying bone shards found in a forest as those of Alexei and his sister, Grand Duchess Maria.

Now you can stop hunting now Peter and Alice, they’ve all been found. Your dreams of discovering the bones of the last remains of the Czar’s family. Womp.

  2. hahah Well it’s a relief for me that I can stop looking, it was burdensome doing it all by myself. Alice, on the other hand, had the help of her whole psychic friends network.
