Was she or wasn't she (and Fred, who seems to be relegated to a historical footnote) murdered by the Japanese imperial navy, making her the first US casualty of WWII?

I really need to find a copy of the photo of Amelia here in Halifax, clutching a copy of the very same newspaper for which I now toil.
