John’s DNA found in DNA found on papa’s shoe
DNA has been found on the sole of a shoe belonging to John Paul II’s second wife, who died in a plane crash in 1976.
The finding was announced on Tuesday by a team of researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, who said their findings showed the DNA had been passed on by a human to the shoe from which the shoe was made.
The shoe was used in the final moments of his life.
The findings were made public on the same day the shoe’s makers announced that DNA from the shoe had been found in John Paul’s ashes, which were cremated.
A spokesman for the shoe company, American Made Shoes, said in a statement that the team of scientists found DNA in the shoe.
It was not clear how the DNA came to be in the shoes.
The team said it was not able to determine whether the DNA originated from the DNA of the deceased.
A former papa, John Paul, died in 1976 when his plane crashed into the sea near the city of Cancun.
His ashes were recovered by archaeologists, who then put the remains in a box at a museum in Mexico.
The researchers, led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, have been searching for the remains of the former pope since then.
