A video capture fimed by the Soviets during the fall of Berlin in 1945, showing what is supposedly Hitler's corpse. Finally the body was identified as Gustav Weler (Hitler´s double) who was executed with a gunshot to the forehead.

At the end of the Second World War, he was executed by a gunshot to the forehead in an attempt to confuse the Allied troops when Berlin was taken. He was also used "as a decoy for security reasons". When his corpse was discovered in the Reichs Chancellery garden by Soviet troops, it was mistakenly believed to be that of Hitler because of his identical moustache and haircut. The corpse was also photographed and filmed by the Soviets. In fact, Hitler's corpse had already been cremated by that time.
One servant from the bunker declared that the dead man was one of Hitler's cooks. He also believed this man "had been assassinated because of his startling likeness to Hitler, while the latter had escaped from the ruins of Berlin".

A sensationalist 2006 book by Eric Orion entitled "The Bush Connection", claimed that Otto Skorzeny himself shot Weler.
Weler's body was brought to Moscow for investigations and buried in the yard at Lefortovo prison.

More info (in Spanish):

Años después de la muerte de Adolf Hitler, en 1945, y cuando ya se habían escrito infinidad de textos acerca del supuesto suicidio del Führer y la ausencia de sus restos, los rusos dieron a conocer una fotografía de lo que parecía ser su cadáver. La imagen sólo agregó confusión. Todo sigue tan tenebroso como antes, cuando, al igual que varios funcionarios soviéticos, el mismo Stalin llegó a decir que Hitler no estaba muerto y que, seguramente, había escapado a España o Argentina.

La conclusión de algunos estudiosos es que quien aparece muerto y con un balazo en la frente es Gustav Weler, uno de los dobles de Hitler. Muchos descuentan también que en 1944, el célebre atentado fallido al "gran dictador" no fue tan fallido, y que allí murió otro de sus dobles. Según dijo Keitel, Hitler no reconoció a Stauffenberg (sin embargo lo había condecorado cinco días antes). Al estallar la bomba testigos informaron de que Hitler se quejo que sus pantalones nuevos se habían quemado. También hay que destacar la calma que tenia Hitler cuando saludo a Musolini aquel mismo día el 20 de julio de 1944.
