However, I have seen information which indicates that modern scientific testing of the alleged Hitler skull (held by the Russians, permission was granted for testing) turned out to be from a female. This may be complicated by the thought that the skull was of Eva Braun, though I'm not sure if Eva Braun's corpse (supposedly as a result of a cyanide capsule and possibly an additional gun shot) is claimed to have been partially burned with Hitler.
Also, a German engineer / architect who created a virtual recreation of the bunker indicated that the SS aid, who claimed to have heard the shot, could not have heard gunfire from the location that the SS aid claimed to be in at the time. It's said the robust structure of the bunker would not have permitted sound to carry in accordance with the claimed location of the SS aid.
I would also like discuss the ramifications of this question. Comments wanted.
While Americans took a pile of photos of every important Nazi while they were alive and when dead for propaganda purposes, Soviets would have given their nuts to take a snap with a trophy like this. They even went as far as to try and fake the photo.
An interesting theory:
And another one:
And I know that Stalin firmly believed that Hitler escaped, and yes, the lack of Eva Braun's remains is curious.
Not sure if this is the latest one, though.
During the Soviet era, everyone was talking about Soviet soldiers doing it. Last time I was reading Soviet history books I was 11 years old, so I'm not sure if I still have those, but I'll dig around a bit.
Hitler's jaw is kept at the FSB archives, and the fragments of Hitler's skull are at the State Archive. There are no other parts of Hitler's body apart from these samples seized on May 5, 1945.
It is this skull fragment which has been determined to be from a female.
Also, I believe there are blood samples from the alleged bed in which Hitler supposedly shot himself. Hitler's relatives have reportedly refused to give blood samples for a DNA comparison.

Sure. Like they had a choice, if KGB (or now FSB) wanted one. They have ways to get things done. It would have been taken from their corpses, if not voluntarily. Most likely they have no use for it, or already did a comparison and it does not match.
It's an interesting topic nonetheless. I doubt we will ever really know the real truth, unless there exists some very,very secret document in the former Soviet archives (IF the Soviets actually knew something we don't).
So, if his own men did not burn his body, and Soviets did not do it, then no one has actually seen him dead, and the suicide story is pulled out of you know where, like the rest of the official WWII "history".
Assuming that Hitler did get out of the bunker and 'retired' elsewhere, my question is whether there are credible reports or sightings of him, at his place of residence, etc.? I would think he had various support staff who at one time or another would have spoke up, snapped a photo or two. Thanks.

Meanwhile, some have suggested that this man kind of looks like him:

I say like Skorzeny: "Everybody wants me" (but in this case everybody seem to want Hitler )

KGB story is the last one to believe. After double-identifying the body as Hitlers, they still pulled the wrong rabbit out of the hat. Unless Hitler went through plastic surgery by which his head was replaced with that of a woman, the KGB was blowing bubbles.
