From Church Militant:

"Groundbreaking new research reveals the Shroud of Turin — believed to be the burial shroud of Christ — shows marks indicating a spear wound consistent with that of Our Lord depicted in the gospels. The same report also shows the Shroud of Turin and the Shroud of Oviedo were wrapped around the same man.

In a study released Friday by the Catholic University of Murcia (UCAM) in Spain, researchers offered the newest forensic evidence suggesting the Shroud of Turin and the Shroud of Oviedo came from the same period and covered the same person. The Shroud of Oviedo also shows the man suffered a wound from a sharp object after death. This accords with the account given by St. John in his Gospel, which describes a Roman centurion opening Christ's side with a spear while He still hung on the Cross."
