TheDailyBeast: 8 Crazy Conspiracy Theories About Aviator Amelia Earhart’s Demise

2 of 10

The United States was at war in 1942, and Earhart’s flight brought her right over enemy territory. It only made sense, then, that the U.S. government should use her as a Trojan Horse to spy on the Japanese, conspiracy theorists say.

The U.S. eventually invaded and occupied the islands in 1944.
