  Have you ever wondered why there is an Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah near Opa-locka Executive Airport?

The missing pilot's last stop in the continental United States was in Miami in 1937 -- months before she vanished on her around-the-world flight attempt. What happened to her, where it happened and why has been one of aviation's more widely speculated-upon mysteries.

Now, a piece of metal -- likely attached as a repair before Earhart took off -- may have been identified in a Miami Herald photograph taken the day she disappeared.

It may be a visual match to a piece of aluminum found in some rubble in what was once known as Gardner Island in the South Pacific.

So channel your inner detective and read Miami Herald writer Glenn Garvin's account of another possibility of what may have happened to Amelia Earhart.
