  1. Hello,I My name is Julie Adams. lived in Saipan from 1966 to 1968 while my father worked as an electrical engineer for the Trust Territory, I was born in 1957. I remember vividly one weekend when my family took a tour of Garapan prison and hospital. It seemed deep in the boonies, quite buried in vegetation. I remember hearing the guide say that Emilia was held in the prison. I had no idea who she was but the moment the guide said the female pilot was held prisoner there,I heard a voice clear as day say “I died here”. I had bever had a paranormal experience up till then but I certainly did that day.My mother remembers me telling her that “she died here”.I get chills when i write this over 50 years later. From that time on I have felt an affinity toward Amelia and I am certain that voice was she.
