Below Are Excerpts From The Seven-Year Swindell/Beyond 37' Forensic Analysis. The Samples Shown Here Represent A Small Portion Of The Overall Study; One That Includes Full Head To Toe Body Comparisons, Published Photos Of The Different Individuals The Study Discovered To Have Shared The Same Irene Craigmile Bolam Identity, (One Shown Here In The Lower Middle Column) And Even Handwriting And Voice Comparisons Further Matching One Of The Irenes To Amelia. [A Large Photo Panel From The Study Appeared As A Backdrop In A National Geographic Channel Earhart Special.] In 1997 Beyond 37's Investigative Researcher- Filmmaker Tod Swindell Began A Long Trail Of Consulting With Human Identity Experts, Medical Professionals, And Document Examiners. Also Referred To Were Academic Textbooks On The Subjects Of Human Body And Character Trait Comparison Techniques. The Study Results Were First Made Public In Colonel Rollin C. Reineck's 2004 Book, Amelia Earhart Survived. After Reading And/Or Hearing About It, Other Enthusiasts Such As Dave Deal Duplicated The 'Overlay Method' With Amelia Photos To Yield The Same Positive Results.

The nose difference evidenced itself as a common 'deviated septum rhinoplasty' procedure. So much slightly flattened it to widen the passages. The upper nose bridge was thinned, and from straight on her brow ridge became a bit more furrowed. Human identity forensic ID qualifiers such as DNA, dental records, and fingerprints help solve cases that involve 'missing-person' body evidence. But the Irene-Amelia case was very unusual. The enormous amount of forensic research data long pre-supporting the Gervais claim, (to later include the Irene 'shared identity' discovery) made it all but impossible, or irresponsible to simply ignore the controversy. Many self-proclaimed 'Amelia Earhart research authorities' tried their best to deride the Gervais equation, (and still do) mostly because they found it hard to believe Amelia would opt out of her public life.

By now it is fair to calculate how the former Amelia Earhart had been working with the family of the original Irene Craigmile, and how she had confided in, and worked with some of her past friends to include her own Sister Muriel Morrissey, in an effort to successfully change her identity in pursuit of further avoiding the public eye. She also apparently worked with the Catholic Church, the ZONTA organization, certain masonic figureheads, and United States, Japan, and England historical divisions in order to achieve the future non-famous person status she desired. Again, all to secure her further non-public person status.

The final equation revealed Amelia Earhart to have been a good friend and ZONTA sister of the original Irene Craigmile's Aunt, a well known lawyer by the name of Irene Rutherford O'Crowley. The O'Crowley's were a prominent Irish Catholic family. Yet the original Irene Craigmile, although close to Amelia in age was never well known, and she had endured a troubled life as an only child after losing her Mother at young age. Her Father, Joe O'Crowley allegedly became an alcoholic after the original Irene's Mother died, leaving the original Irene to be taken in and further raised by her Aunt (Amelia's future attorney friend) and her paternal Grandmother Sarah O'Crowley, all of the Newark, New Jersey area. (continued below)    


After she gave birth to her Son in 1934 the original Irene no longer appeared. Records of her past existence were obfuscated for any future public referencing, and the short marriage she endured with her Son's Father, Al Heller was legally annulled by 1940. Meanwhile Amelia Earhart had turned up 'missing' in 1937. Notably, if the original Irene Craigmile Heller died at some point (for instance as a result of post-childbirth complications) there appeared to be no record of such a thing having happened. However, apparently it was the case that the original person known as Irene Craigmile in the 1930s who Amelia had known, was a person who actually did disappear at some point after she gave birth to her son in 1934, and she was never seen again. It is certain the former Amelia Earhart, during the time adjacent to the World War Two era, assumed the original Irene Craigmile's still extant ID value for her own future use in order to live further in anonymity. This, while she also continued with helping to raise of the original Irene Craigmile's Son, and her own Canadian born daughter from 1924 no one knew of who had also been taken in by the O'Crowley family after Amelia suddenly became famous in 1928. Mr. Swindell's research states it is the younger (mid-twenties) and older version (age fifty-eight in 1982) of Amelia's non-recognized birth daughter featured in the bottom middle in the photo section on this page. He points to Lloyd Royer, one of two men besides George Putnam to have proposed to Amelia, as the likely Father. A highly controversial assessment to be sure, this too remains to be disproved. The bottom line is, the true identity of the woman featured on the cover of Irene Bolam's 1982 Memorial Dinner program... has never been authoritatively revealed... either by still living O'Crowley or Earhart family relatives, or by some other entity whom does know who she really was, or still is.  

NOTE: To contact Beyond 37' e-mail The Beyond 37' film, book, and website projects are dedicated to the late USAF Major Joseph A. Gervais (1924-2005) and the late USAF Col. Rollin C. Reineck (1920-2007). Both were World War Two heroes who learned the basic Irene-Amelia truth decades ago. Major Gervais, who was considered by many to have been the most devoted Amelia Earhart researcher ever having pursued the mystery since 1960, discovered the Irene-Amelia reality in 1965. The controversial 1970 McGraw-Hill book by Joe Klaas, Amelia Earhart Lives expounded on the enormous amount of Joe Gervais' investigative research, and displayed the first nationally published photo of Irene-Amelia. Myriad fallout the Amelia Earhart Lives book caused notwithstanding, and still lacking official authoritative guidance, Colonel Reineck spent the last several years of his life trying to advance the Gervais claim of Earhart's name-changed survival to authenticity. Colonel Reineck's book Amelia Earhart Survived, published in late 2003, was largely inspired by the Irene-Amelia forensic studies of Beyond 37's Tod Swindell. Several portions of the analysis appeared in the Reineck book, and more samples are better displayed in this website. [Beyond 37' was formed in 2001 by the Tod Evan Company in Los Angeles.
