Archaeologist Joan Fletcher has been working with the mummy for twelve years and still she is not certain if the mummy is Nefertiti or if it isn’t. Fletcher has accumulated new first hand evidence suggesting that this mummy is indeed Nefertiti. Because this mummy is bald it raised some doubts but Fletcher has found a wig discovered in the tomb that was most likely used by Nefertiti. The mummy was probably mutilated and destroyed by grace robbers looking for jewels, but one of the injuries was sustained in life resulting in severe blood loss and probably her death. The mutilations may have also been by priests trying to destroy her chances of going into the afterlife.
