His body was found in shrubbery near a pond behind his house.
He was frozen though it was not freezing weather
His blood was drained from his body
He had a look of sheer terror on his face
His boot was hanging from a tree, high above him

His family was not told the truth of what happened
Government Agents kept details classified

If family weren't permitted to view Sees body where were highlighted classified details above found?

From what I remember she understood Russian perfectly well but refused to speak it although others said she would speak Russian in her sleep.

-Anderson spoke English, French and German, and could understand Russian. She said she would no longer speak it because it was the language of those who had killed her family.

-Supporters, including a childhood friend of Anastasia's, a cousin, and the son of the Romanov court's doctor, said Anderson knew things only the real grand duchess would know. When she first met the doctor's son, for example, she asked him about his "funny animals." Years earlier, the man had drawn Anastasia animals wearing court clothes.

-There were similarities between Anderson and Anastasia. Both reportedly had the same foot deformity. Anderson had scars on her body that she said had been caused by gunshots and bayonets.

-A handwriting expert said the two had identical script.

Time magazine dubbed Anderson one of history's greatest imposters. One popular theory, which the DNA evidence appears to confirm, is that she was Franziska Schanzkowska, a mentally troubled Polish factory worker who disappeared in 1920. Yet, how does a poor Polish factory worker learn to speak several languages fluently by a young age?
