Emilie Sagée: The woman who wasn’t there

In 1845, Emilie Sagée took a job at the Neuwelcke boarding school. It was her 18th teaching position in 16 years. The girls of the school would soon find out why, when on numerous occasions, Emilie was seen wandering the halls or sitting at the front of class, even when she was known to be elsewhere. Often claimed to be the most well documented case of a doppelgänger, this week we dig deep to find the truth behind the stories.
