Deutsche Welle: German "Murder Victim" Actually Bog Girl

A mummified body, originally believed to be a murder victim, has been identified as that of a teenage girl... a 2,700-year-old teenage girl. The remains were discovered in a peat bog near Uchte, Lower Saxony.

Parts of the body were first discovered in 2000 when the local police were called in to help solve the case. Recently, scientists have used radiocarbon dating to establish the actual age of the body dubbed "Girl of the Moor."
