...This led them to the discovery of containers of bones under a stone slab beneath the college, which were opened Saturday.
Emanuela's brother, Pietro, who was not at the Vatican Saturday, told ABC News officials had dug up a "large number of diverse bones." He added that it could take weeks to identify and sort them all.
Portera, the family's forensic expert, said "thousands of bones have been found."
"I can't say if it's 1,000 or 2,000, but there are really very many, and so we assume the presence of the remains of a few dozen people," Portera said. "There are long bones, small bones, many are fragmented."
Mr. Portera said that the bones appeared to belong to people of various ages, and that craniums belonging to adults, but also children, had been found. Using carbon-14 dating methods, the bones could be accurately dated, he said.
Laura Sgro, the Orlandi family lawyer who was present during Saturday’s examination, said that the two ossuaries were underground, in a building adjacent to the cemetery, and that they contained “very many bones.”
“Certainly some are historic, older, but at first sight it’s not possible to do an accurate dating,” she told reporters.

Storm The Vatican!
Seriously though, there's probably much more worthy secrets found there than Area 51. The Vatican needs some light shown upon it.

Everyone involved in that organization needs to be arrested and forced to dismantle the Vatican brick by brick.
With tiny little pick axes!

I am fascinated how nobody addresses the cemetery part.
Nooo, bones = Satan.
I must be a walking hell, then. I am all bones.
