This man was purposely hidden from sight. Archaeologists discovered a skeleton of a young man with stab wounds. This body led them to a 1300-year-old Chinese murder mystery in a tomb raiders’ shaft. Experts believe that the murder took place between 640 and 680 AD. In addition, the man, who was estimated to be around 25-years-old, was probably alive when he was thrown into the shaft and left to die. Tragic.
