A group of French researchers have been able to put an end to all the conspiracy theories surrounding Adolf Hitler's death.

Four pathologists were given access to fragments of Hitler's teeth, that were recovered in Berlin in early May 1945 and have been kept in Moscow ever since. They were able to confirm that the teeth belonged to the late dictator. According to their findings, which were published Friday in the scientific magazine European Journal of Internal Medicine, Adolf Hitler definitely died in 1945 in Berlin after taking cyanide and shooting himself in the head.

"We can stop all the conspiracy theories about Hitler,"  lead pathologist Philippe Charlier told the AFP news agency. "He did not flee to Argentina in a submarine, he is not in a hidden base in Antarctica or on the dark side of the moon."

Fragments from Hitler's skull were able to confirm he died by means of suicide. The teeth revealed no trace of meat, consistent with the fact that he was vegetarian, and matched descriptions provided by Hitler's dentist.
