Unmasking Alien Mummies: Peruvian Forensic Experts Illuminate the Intricate Hoax Behind Extraterrestrial Claims

Tuesday 16th, January 2024
A recent revelation that quashes fantastical claims of extraterrestrial involvement, Peruvian forensic experts have exposed the true nature of objects declared to be alien mummies. Confiscated by Peruvian customs last year during an attempt to transport them to Mexico, these objects were initially presented as potential evidence of alien life. However, a thorough forensic analysis led by Flavio Estrada, a forensic archaeologist, unveiled a different story.

The so called alien mummies were revealed to be intricate hoaxes, constructed from commonplace materials such as paper, modern glue, metal, and an assortment of bones, including those from humans, birds, dogs, and other animals. The findings refute assertions that these objects originated from an extraterrestrial centre or arrived on Earth from another planet.

This revelation sheds light on the dubious claims made by a group of enthusiasts in Mexico who, in September 2023, presented what they called "alien corpses" to the Mexican Congress. Journalist Jaime Maussan, the leader of the group, had previously disseminated information about UFOs that was subsequently debunked. This time, Maussan showcased mummified "aliens" in wooden boxes under glass, asserting that radiocarbon dating by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) indicated the bodies were over a thousand years old.

However, UNAM promptly denied Maussan's claims, stating that many details about the mummified bodies lacked scientific credibility. Julieta Fierro, a researcher at the Institute of Astronomy, emphasised that the university did not endorse the ufologist's findings.

This incident is not the first time Maussan has been involved in presenting alleged extraterrestrial evidence. In 2017, he showcased mummies from the Peruvian Nazca desert, claiming they were alien creatures. Subsequent investigations, however, revealed that these remains were of human origin, specifically, mummies of children with artificially elongated skulls resulting from cultural practices, likely tied to religious rituals.
