Podcast: Tony Romeo (16)

Charleston School of Law alumnus Tony Romeo (’16) and his team of underwater archaeologists at Deep Sea Vision may be close to solving one of the greatest mysteries in U.S. history. 

Last fall, the team at Deep Sea Vision scanned 5,200 square miles of the Pacific Ocean floor in search of Amelia Earhart’s plane.

Earhart’s plane disappeared in 1937 with her navigator, Fred Noonan. At some point during the the flight, the plane fell off the radar and disappeared. It has never been found — yet.

“Some people call it one of the greatest mysteries of all time, I think it is the greatest mystery of all time,” said Romeo. “We have an opportunity to bring closure to one of the greatest American stories ever.”

We spoke to Romeo for the Charleston School of Law podcast today. Listen to the streaming episode below or download the podcast on your favorite platform.
