VATICAN CITY – Lawyers for the family of a 15-year-old girl, who was missing in 1983, say they press Italian prosecutors and the Vatican for more detail on human bones near the Embassy of the Holy See in Rome.
Laura Sgro, lawyer for the family of Emanuela Orlandi, said Wednesday that the Vatican statement revealing the discovery "provides little information."
The statement did not mention Orlandi – the daughter of a Vatican employee – by name, but the find immediately prompted speculation about the disappearance of the girl, which remains one of the Holy See's most enduring secrets.
The Vatican said this week human bone fragments had been found in the renovation of a room attached to the embassy, and Italian prosecutors had been activated by prosecutors to determine the body's age and sex and the date of death.
