On this day: The Angel of Death identified

Josef Mengele was one of the numerous Nazis who had managed to flee to South America to avoid the Nuremberg Trials. The Nazi doctor, who became infamous for conducting gruesome human experiments in the Auschwitz death camp, was died of a heart attack in Brasil in 1979. The “Angel of Death” did not spend a single day in jail. His grave was discovered only in 1985 but his identification was completed on Jun 21, 1992, using DNA gained from Mengele’s son and from the Nazi war criminal’s remains.
