I'm sure you've all heard the story of the boy pharaoh, King Tutankhamun or "King Tut" as he's more famously known. His tomb was discovered in 1922 in the Egypt's famous Valley of the Kings, and is the youngest mummified pharaoh found to date.

Many researchers speculated that King Tut was an avid chariot racer, and his untimely death was the result of a fatal accident during a race. Others thought that maybe he had contracted an illness from a mosquito bite.

There were also paintings in the boy king's tomb that weren't consistent with any other burial. And when the sarcophagus was opened to reveal the mummy himself, there were more anomalies that had never been observed.

But the real mystery surrounding the boy is why he died so young, and how. Now, over 90 years later, with over 2,000 computer scans performed, a digital autopsy has finally revealed the fate of the mysterious King Tut.
