Doppelganger Debunked: Rudolf Hess Conspiracy

8 May

Conspiracy theories say the man held in Spandau Prison in Berlin was not Hitler’s deputy Rudolph Hess. Hess died in 1986, but a sample of his blood was found in an archive in the United States. Scientists extracted DNA and compared it to his living relatives. The match was 99.99% accurate, meaning the man who was held jailed for war crimes was the real Rudoph Hess and not a doppelganger as some conspiracy theorists have maintained.
