What If Hitler Didn't Die In The Bunker?

It turns out that Inglorious Basterds' alternate death of Hitler may not be entirely impossible after all: Scientists have discovered that the real owner of the famed Fuhrer's skull is actually female, making everyone ask: What really happened to Hitler?

DNA analysis on the skull fragment presumed to belong to Adolf Hitler performed at the University of Connecticut recently has proven that it came from a female aged anywhere between 20 and 40 years of age, despite being found in what was believed to be Hitler's grave (Researchers have mentioned the possibility that the skull fragment may belong to Eva Braun, who was also said to have died in the bunker with Hitler and was buried with him, but there is no possible way to confirm or deny that currently).


What was previously believed to be Hitler's corpse was cremated by the KGB in 1970, meaning that there's no way of verifying whether this skull fragment was simply misidentified or whether the corpse, in fact, didn't belong to Hitler in the first place. But with the skull fragmented - the only proof that Hitler had, in fact, shot himself in a bunker in 1945 - discredited, expect to hear plenty of conspiracy theories about Hitler's true fate in years to come.
