Exclusive-A close encounter with the ‘alien bodies’ in Mexico

By Cassandra Garrison

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – For Jaime Maussan, a Mexican journalist and longtime UFO enthusiast, this is one of the most important discoveries in human history.

But for many scientists, these two small bodies with elongated heads and three fingers on each hand, the images that shone in the world this week when presented to the Congress of Mexico, something that has already proven – it may be a crime.

At Maussan’s office, in Mexico City’s Santa Fe business district, workers are carefully moving two glass-closed boxes containing the bodies into a green room, where Reuters had exclusive access on Friday.

Everyone crouches down to get a good view. The bodies look primitive and share characteristics with humans: two eyes, mouth, two arms, two legs. Maussan said they were found in 2017 in Peru, near the pre-Columbian Nazca Lines.

He says he can prove it is unlike anything known in the world. On social media and in court, he shared scientific research and test results that he argued proved the bodies to be about 1,000 years old and not related to any known species of the world.

One of them, described by Maussan as a woman, was found to have eggs inside, he said.

“This is the most important thing that has happened to mankind,” said Maussan, 70, of his plan to publicize the findings, sitting in his office heavily decorated with colorful portraits. and accessories.

“I believe that this is the only thing that has happened to give us the opportunity to stand together,” he added.

Elsa Tomasto-Cagigao, a specialist in Peruvian bio-anthropologist, is disappointed that such information is still being published, saying that such information was found to be fraudulent.

“What we said before is still the same, they are giving the same information as usual and if there are people who still believe in that, then what is possible what do we do?,” he said on the phone. “It’s so bad and so simple that there’s nothing more to add.”

The finds were previously dismissed by the scientific community as mummified mummies of pre-Hispanic children, sometimes combined with animal parts.

David Spergel, former head of Princeton University’s astrophysics department and chair of a NASA report on the mysterious event, said Thursday that such examples are should be available for study by the world scientific community.


Maussan shared on social media and in his presentation the results of the DNA tests and carbon dating he said he assigned to “people.”

A Mexican scientist, at the request of Reuters, reviewed the results and concluded that they showed normal life on Earth.

Maussan told Reuters on Friday that the test results were not directly linked to the two bodies he presented to Congress this week, however. In fact, he said, they were created in a different body, called Victoria, which still remains in Peru.

“They were found in the same place. They have the same physical appearance, they are the same,” said Maussan about Victoria and the two bodies he handed over to Mexico. Tests were not done on those two bodies to avoid contamination, he said.

Maussan is no stranger to controversy. He made claims about other relics in the past that were widely criticized. He took part in a 2017 TV documentary about other remains found near the Nazca Lines, which experts such as Tomasto-Cagigao and paleontologist Rodolfo Salas-Gismondi have said seem to indicate mummies

Meanwhile, he has angered Peruvian officials.

Peru’s Minister of Culture Leslie Urteaga has questioned how the artifacts, which he says are pre-Hispanic, left Peru and said a criminal complaint has been filed.

“I’m not worried. I didn’t do anything illegal,” Maussan said.

How the remains got to Mexico is a question he said he could not answer. Maussan is borrowing for the trial a Mexican man who was in Maussan’s office Friday and has not been identified.

When asked how the dead bodies – which he said were Clara and Mauricio – were found in him, the man replied that he would reveal them all “in due time.”

Jose de Jesus Zalce Benitez, Director of the Health Sciences Research Institute of the Secretary of the Navy, attended the council meeting, and reinforced Maussan’s claim. Now with him in his office, he calmly explained his definition of science.

“Regarding the DNA tests, which were compared to more than one million species … not related to what is known or explained so far by science or human understanding,” the he said.

Julieta Fierro, a scientist at Mexico’s National Autonomous University’s (UNAM) Institute of Astronomy who reviewed Maussan’s test results for Reuters, sees less mystery in the data.

He said that the presence of carbon-14 in the studies carried out by UNAM has confirmed that the samples are related to the brain and the skin of the skin from different things…
